Thankful Thursday

Today, I am thankful for many things.  Thankful for life (above ground) on this side of heaven.  Thankful for the activities of my limbs.  Thankful for the love that I'm shown [daily] by my spouse, my son, my Deacon and family, my brother Shell and my sisters-in-Christ at work.  I'm thankful for my church and church family.  Though small as it may be - it's significant and genuine; we don't have to fake it, Amen!

I'm thankful to God because He is SO awesome.  He's my sustainer and comforter; my deliverer and source; my strength and my redeemer in Christ; and my all in all.  Yes life can be challenging but anything worth having, generally is; but overall, when God is in it, you can win it!

I'm thankful because I am convinced that all things will work for my good. (Romans 8:28)  And even though I can't see the fullness of my purpose now, I know God will lead and guide me every step of the way.   Be blessed on this Thankful Thursday and enjoy a wonderful weekend!
