Thankful Thursday

With all the evidence of the workings of Satan and his forces I am going to use this post to thank and praise my God. The Bible tells us that God inhabits the praise of his children. Let's bring Heaven down as we lift our thankful hearts to heaven.

1. I am so thankful that God brought my prodigal son home, Monday Night. He was gone for almost two months. I thank God for showing him what life can be like out from under
the shadow of God's wings.

2. I am thankful for all those that God brought by to join me in prayer and fasting for Lauree and Her husband Robert. God has been moving and I thank Him that He lets me
walk by faith and not by sight.

3. I thank God for the hearts of the powerful women of God that He has brought into my life. Beth Moore, Joyce Meyers, Holly, Dee, Lauree, Linda, My Mom, 'Nise, Sting My Heart, Fruit In Season, Lois, Loyce, Amanda, Lynn,---this list could go on and on.

4.I want to thank God for this situation with Robert. Because God allowed us to participate in the HIS burden for Robert--God has fulfilled the promise He made in the Bible to give me back what Satan stole from me. When I was young Satan took my sense of security and my ability to fully trust anyone-especially men. As we sat in church last night and talked about the spiritaul battle that is at hand and how God was teaching us that in order to be able to truly fight we must be pure-I realized He had also taught me something else. I have learned that I can trust and be secure with my pastor--not because of him but because of the man of God that God is making him. That my not seems like a big deal to some, but when your sense of security was stolen by the actions of "godly men"--it is huge.
So I thank God for His promises.
I thank God for the burdens God is willing to share with us.
And I thank God for men who are willing to be "souled out"
To my Master and King!

5. I thank God that He has made me the woman I am today and He is not finished yet!

Can I bless me, too? Well indeed you do! I've spent the day praying and had to come and see everyone...prayed for you and your concerns, asked God to be Migthy over them! Wondering too if He may not just move you to the mountains, yet!
Love in Him,

I am so glad that God is ever present, and never changing! :) I am thankful we can rest *in* Him.

When I read different thankful lists, I think, "Wow, I need to put a couple of these on my own!" As in the case of yours ... a few hit close to home. Rejoicing about the return home of your son!!

Oh, thank you Sharon for sharing from you heart. How awesome that you son returned to the LORD - Praising Him with you...
I have to admit that I have put pastors on a pedal-stool when I was younger. Today I know that they are just as human and sinful as we are.

Thank you again for sharing your thankfulness with us this week.

Blessings to you and yours.
