Thankful Thursday

I find today that I am truly thankful for my relationship with The Living God Of This Universe. I am encouraged today by friends that have true hearts for God.
Those seeking to be "all that they can be" for the One who created them.

I am ever so grateful for God showing me that He is working in my life. Not only by the things He gives me but for the way He is speaking to me about the desires of His heart.

I guess one of the first things to go when your relationship starts to slip-is your desire to use your spiritual gifts for Him-or the desire to serve Him. You can't hear the spirit as well so how would you know what He wants you to do with them.
Lately I have been reading on a dear friends blog about her walk with the Lord.
It has come at a very good time. I am reminded of what it is like to know you are walking in the Spirit. To feel Him moving through you and the power of hearing His voice clearly. That will create real longing for something that God is readily willing to fill with Himself.

So today as my Father looks down ---I will let Him see me looking up smiling right back at Him.
I love you Lord. You are my Rock--my firm foundation. Thank you for filling me with your Spirit today. May I hear clearly the voice of your Spirit.

To read more Thankful Thursday go to Sting My Heart and visit Iris our host.

Sorry I put in the wrong site to get to Iris--I have fixed it now.
Who knew there was another blog with the same title.

Um, yeah, I checked out Sting My Heart briefly...I didn't see a Thankful that the site you meant to put?

Anyway, I was catching up this morning since I have been away. Touching stuff here Sharon. I feel like I am always thanking you for encouragement and for directing my heart and mind to the Lord, but here I go again...Thanks!

I was wondering about that site...didn't want to be judgemental though. I agree that she could use the Lord touch in her life!

I just felt to tell you what a lovely blog you have, how encouraging it is to read your journey, be challenged, food for thought. What an encourager you are. As I prayed I could see you as one who is gifted by God to prepare the way for others to know Him.

I am glad that the Lord is working in your life. I know He is mine too, just sometimes I really have to listen very hard to His quiet voice...
Thank you for sharing from your heart today....
Blessings on your Friday and always.

BTW - thank you for correcting the link. I just came across the "Other Sting My Heart" - I guess I have to change my blog--but I love my little sting and everyone knows me by it *sigh*. Too bad they have almost the same layout. I really have to think about it, since the language is a little on the rough side.
