Thankful Thursday - March 11, 2010

Thankful Thursday


Sonya at Truth for the Journey has passed the mantle of leading Thankful Thursdays on to Greg at Greg's General Store. Sonya was a wonderful leader for this meme and I have to say she couldn't have picked a better person to take on this role. So today I join Greg and all his followers for Thankful Thursday.

I am thankful that God led me to reconnect with my Jr High friend at this time and that He has a plan and a purpose for this.

I am thanful for all you sweet bloggy friends who have prayed for my friend and for me. It means so much to me.

I am thanful for the home that God has given me. I think about the people who are homeless and without a roof over their heads and my heart really goes out to them.

I am thankful for my SUV that God picked out for me several years ago. I had been praying for a passenger vehicle for a little while so that I could more easily, and safely  carry my sweet little cargo of grand-girls around but I never dreamed of anything like this SUV. It is exceedingly, abundantly above what I asked for or imagined.

I am thankful that I only have two payments left on the SUV and that debt will be gone. Yay!

I am thankful for the work that God has given, and that He uses me to touch other's lives like He does.

I am thankful that my bloggy friends still come by to visit me even though I haven't had much time to blog visit lately. I hope to improve on that soon.

Thank you LORD that you are my Yahweh-Yireh, that you will never leave me or forsake me, and that your love is everlasting. You are my all in all and I praise and worship you with all my heart. ~ In Jesus Name, Amen

Edie, I'm so glad that the Lord brought us together as blogging friends. How exciting to have only one more payment on your SUV! Yay God! Times are so uncertain right now but our God is certain and trustworthy. I am studying El Roi this week and it's so comforting to know that He sees all the details of our lives Edie.

Love you,
Debbie

What blessings Edie. I still don't know your story (though I know a bit about your tender and faithful heart and that we are kindred spirits!)

Need to connect more!

Hi Edie,
Yahweh-Yireh He is and forever will be. Continuing to pray for you. I sense that God is going to take what's in your hand and multiply it. Look at what's in your hand.
Blessings, love and prayers to you.
