Thankful Thursday

I will see the GLORY of my LORD
in the land of the living.

Thank ya Jesus for each day proving to us that your word does not lie.
Thank you that I can stand on a ROCK that will never be shaken by the insecurities of this life.

Thank you that after months of seeing only what was happening here on earth You opened the heavenlies for us to be able to see the results of the battle that is being won.
(Robert came back to our church last night after 3 months of being lost in a crack haze. And over a year of not wanting to be with the people at our church because he had been confronted about some sin in his life. God's word works. We love him so.)

Thank you God for providing a house right down the road for us to rent on a month by month basis. (We will go and pick my Father-in-law up from the nursing home on Sunday.) And I thank Him in advance for holding my father-in-laws heart as he has to leave my step mother-in-law
of 16 years, there at the home.

I thank God for the test that He puts in my way to grow and try my faith.
This time in my life has the huge possibility of great growth.
It also has the possibility of having to be marked with --RE DUE.
Dear God let me pass this test this time so that I don't have to take it again.
Help my unbelief.

And it seems I am doing this almost every week--but--
Thank you Jesus for the prayer warriors in my life. Thank you for surrounding me with women and men who after having done all to stand-are still standing.

I am SO thankful that your picking your father-in-love up this Sunday! I will be praying for him and his wife as they are apart.

I am thankful for Robert's decision and that He who began a good work in him will be complete it!

Finally, in our journey, I often prayed Lord I believe, Help my unbelief...OFTEN.

i LOVE that verse, about seeing the goodness of the Lord in the land of the LIVING! one of my best friends at school - she has it posted above her bed, so she sees it as she falls asleep.

thank you JESUS for bringing back a life.

Glory! Let the children come unto Him. All those who are weary and heavy laden.

The world holds empty promises and only God can restore, rebuild and make whole again.

Praising God in my heart for Robert's return home to Our Heavenly Father.

I am praising Him with you regarding Robert. It is so cool to see/hear that a wandering child returns into His arms. God never gives up on His children, so we should not either.

Glad that you can go forward with the move of your father-in-law this weekend. I hope all will go well.

Thank you so much for sharing your thankful heart with us this week.

Blessings on your Friday and always.
