Thankful Thursday

Good day to you!
Here we are again--and so soon.
The weeks are flying by and I hope that He is finding me faithful with the times He is giving.

I am so thankful today for His mercy.
Such love that touches even down to the very deepest part of me. I am so undeserving and yet He wants His love to wrap me up and cover my neediness.
He not only covers it-- but it actually disappears beneath His righteousness.
Nobody likes a needy person--they tend to sap you of your energy.
So I am thankful that God was not afraid to take on my need.
And you know what--I am not the same.
His love fills till we want no more.
Thank you Jesus.

I am thankful for blogging sisters who are willing to pound on the gates of heaven with me. Maybe that is not the best word picture to give since as His children we are free to go boldly before the throne. Let me rephrase that. I am thankful for women who are willing to go with me before the throne and lift needs to the One who loves completely.
He saw our hearts joined as one and He answered our prayers.
Thank you Jesus!

This is a statement of faith.
I am thankful that when I go to the orthodontist tomorrow morning they are going to tell me that my braces will be ready to come off this next month. It has been 18 months now. And although I have enjoyed pretending I am a tween with all this metal in my mouth--ENOUGH!
Time to grow up. :)
I guess I'll have to share with the Orthodontists that she needs
to walk by faith with me
and not by sight.
And if you will stand with me in faith here--my husband will also be really happy.
Love you guys!
*****update.....braces will come off in 5 weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For more women sharing a sweet savor before the Lord go and visit Iris over at Sting My Heart.
Give her a shout out and tell her how thankful you are for her getting us all together.

Thanks for sharing your blessings today!!! Because of the dark days I am experiencing, it was important that I participate this week ... I needed to remind myself of God's blessings. Please come over and share it with me.

Without His mercy I would have been done for a long, long time ago. So I share with you in being thankful for His mercy.

Amen! Glad you're getting your braces off soon! Blessings!

Great news about the braces coming off in 5 weeks! I know you're excited about that!!

It's wonderful how our blogging friends are always willing to come together and pray. Each time I've put up a prayer request on my blog I've had an amazing response. I certainly never expected that when I started blogging. Hope your friend continues to improve.

Check this out Sharon, it had me in tears as it progressed, such a visual touching and real display.

Karen said...

That is awesome news about the braces!

Angie said...

Great news about the braces!!
Very encouraging post---One thing I thought of when I read about the sisters pounding the doors of heaven...I know you changed it, but I know many times I have "felt" like I was pounding on the floor of heaven---although I know I wasn't....but what we can do is "hold onto the horns of the altar"!
Be blessed! Thank you for sharing such a great list!

Nicki said...

Oh how I can rejoice with you on this one!! I had braces and I remember the excitement that overflowed me the night before I went to get the off!!! BEWARE you may feel like you have slimmy teeth!! =) It will go away!!

Georgia Angel said...

Some days it's so hard not to be needy, but with God's mercy, as you said, He can accept it all. Our burdens are lightened.
God bless you

You are too funny, Sharon. I needed that little chuckle at the end of your post. I am so thrilled for you that your braces are coming of in only 5 weeks. Just think how fast the weeks are flying--you will be there in no time.

You are right. It is awesome to know that if you need sisters in Christ to unite in prayers, they are there - PTL.

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

Be blessed today and always.
