THANKful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

"Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name." (Psalm 100:4)

1. I am thankful for PRAYER. Prayer is our lifeline to God. It is our time of true communion with Him. Through prayer we are able to connect with a Holy God. We can cry out to Him. Call upon His name. Be thankful to Him. Petition on behalf of others. We can just talk to Him and He hears. Thank you sweet Jesus for Prayer.

2. I am thankful for the book of Acts. It is just filled with the love that the disciples had for Jesus. They loved to spread the gospel. They fasted. They prayed. They encouraged. They preached. They were faithful.

3. I am thankful for God's hand on me. These last few days when I have felt anxiety creep up and began to turn to fear, when I call out to Him and pray His Word, He calms me. Thank you precious Father.

4. I am thankful for the new covered patio that the church provided for us. And the beautiful flower garden that my husband and I worked so hard on. Ok... well, that my husband worked so hard on. But I helped. A little.

5. I am thankful that Stellan had God's hand upon him yesterday. He overcame a deadly episode of VT. I am thankful that he was resting last night. I pray that his sweet mama gets some rest. She is strong. She is full of faith. She has put her trust in God.

Thank you for your kind words... prayer is such a powerful "thing" and it is SO REFRESHING to see someone who has a blog full of prayer and has the courage to not afraid to be an open Christian in this world today. :0) Thankful for you and for all of the prayers you send up to my Lord!!


Beth -
Do you realize how much God has been doing in your life these past weeks especially??? Wow - He really is bringing you to a place of true commitment to prayer. It's been so awesome to watch you blossom into the place of prayer... and to hear your heart as it pours out prayer on behalf of those you love and especially for those you barely know - all because you have a heart like HIS!

Bless you! I praise God for your commitment to prayer - as the LORD has taken you to this deeper level with Him. May He bless you mightily for it!

Looking UPward and Choosing JOY,
[In Flight]
