Thankful Thursday

Matthew 16:18-19
"And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven"

This is my first time participating in Thankful Thursday and i thought it would be a good time to prove the rock from which I am cut. So let the praises ring forth, for He is great and mighty and worthy of our praise!

I am thankful for:

Music that lifts my soul into the heavenlies.
That He still speaks.
That I am His sheep and I can hear His voice.
That He considers me part of the rock.
For voices joined with mine to extol the name of Jesus.
For my blog girls.
For the word that is sharper than any two edged sword and that it cuts deep to bring health to the very core of my bones.
For The Lion Of The Tribe Of Judah- that though he tears away what is not of Him--He will then bring healing. (thanks, Crown Laid Down)
For a love that is so amazing that it takes my breath away.
For experiences in the garden with Him that can not be explained to anyone-they are for me and my LOVE alone.
For a God who came to earth because He first loved me.
For a God who was willing to absorb into himself all the putrid yuck that has touched my life and the yuck that I have touched others with.
For Jesus who waits patiently in the heavens for His Father to say,
"Son, go get Sharon".
Can I get a Witness?

Amen! I want to say, you are welcome, but really it was the LORD who spoke to me about sharing that with you (He spoke it to me as well). When He speaks, I try to always, immediately follow through..sometimes, I don't though. But I'm getting to where I listen more than I don't! Have you heard Sandi Patti's version of My Favorite Things (from Sound of Music)? It's on a Christmas album and so bee-u-ti-ful!

May God continue to give you cause for thanks!

Blessings on your Easter, Sister,

I just came over from Diane at Partners . . Prodigals. My son and I are writing a series about his journey THROUGH and deliverance FROM addictions that began when was was in junior high. We have each written 4 parts so far, Part 5 should be up soon. They're on my sidebar, if you're interested.

"For the word that is sharper than any two edged sword and that it cuts deep to bring health to the very core of my bones." Wow! I've never heard it said that way. You truly have a gift with words.

You are right...sometimes we just have to stack up the praises to walk over the wall. Thank you so much for sharing your thankfulness with us this week.

Blessings to you and yours this Easter Weekend.
