Thankful Thursday - August 7

Psalm 34:8 Image

Well it seems that I'm running late as usual. But I'm here and reflecting on my blessings. This is something I really need to do more of.

I am thankful for the income that God has provided. Even though it doesn't seem to work out on paper, my bills always get paid and on time. God has done amazing things in the area of my finances this year. My income has decreased substantially but I have not felt the loss. Thank you Lord, and forgive me for not always being as grateful as I should.

I am thankful for being able to get together with my friend Kathie for dinner this week. She is such a sweet lady with a deep love for the Lord. We didn't get to use up all our words that night so we're going to try again this weekend. :)

I am thankful that God shows up to encourage me so frequently. I am so prone to sink but He picks me up, gives me a hug, and tells me to take another step. All the while He stays right there ready to do it again. Thank you Lord. Please forgive my whining and help me to see you more clearly.

I am thankful that my grandaughter Olivia got to go to Bible Camp this week. I pray that she is having a great time, drawing nearer to Christ, and comes home safely tomorrow.

I am thankful that God can always be trusted, even when it doesn't feel like it.

I am thankful that the weekend is almost here!!! :D

Great thankful list! Thank God for providing for you in His wonderful ways. Praying with you for Olivia that she will have a blessed time at the Camp and return home safely. It is always encouraging to read of your love for our Lord and the ways He is blessing you. Thanks for your encouragements too. May God continue to shower His love and blessing on you!

Amen Edie~~

A wonderful heart of thanksgiving from a woman who loves the Lord. I could sense the praises comming from your heart as I read this today. For me the finances has decreased as well, but yet my faith continues to increase knowing that the Lord does all things well concerning me and my family. I had to stop and praise the Lord after reading yours..
Thanks my sister.. Hugz
