THANKful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

Praise you Lord, for Thankful Thursday and for Sweet Sonya.

1. I am so thankful that God is unchanging. Hebrews 13:8 tells us that "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever."

2. I am so thankful the God gives us a promise that He will complete all things in us that He has called us to do IF we are obedient. "I will cry out to God Most High, to God who performs all things for me" (Psalm 57:2)

3. I am thankful that in Christ there is no darkness. Only light. "Even the darkness is not dark to you. The night shines like the day; darkness and light are alike to you." (Psalm 139:12)

4. I am thankful that we can find strength in God even at our weakest moments. "And He said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.'" (1 Corinthians 12:9)

5.I am thankful for the cleansing power of Jesus. Oh, Lord, cleanse me now. Renew and restore me unto whiteness. "Purge me with hyssop and I shall be clean. Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow." (Psalm 51:7)

I am so thankful that we can find unlimited things in His Word to be thankful for. I am thankful that my NEXT post will be my 100th. I will be having a giveaway so be on the look out for it!

100 posts...

a rich tracing of just where you've been with God over the past season of living! I celebrate with you.

I, too, am also thankful for the rich treasures of God's Word. I spent some time this morning talking through 2 Corinthians, chapters 2-4 with Him. So powerful just to sit with God and his Word and talk it over.

I'm firmly convinced of my need to stay "entrenched" in it; God shapes me through it ... transforming me everyday ever more into his likeness. It's his promise to all of us when we are faithful to keep to it and to him.

peace to you this day~elaine

Thank You Jesus for making all of this possible! If it weren't for you..., we would only have fear, darkness, weakness and sinfulness.

Every good and perfect gift comes from you!
Blessings - Lisa
