Thankful Thursday

>> Tuesday, May 29, 2007


Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand,
that he may lift you up in due time.
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
1 Peter 5:6-7


It's Thankful Thursday and my heart is filled with great joy!

I'm thankful because, God is God and I am not! Can you imagine trying to change peoples' hearts to help them love you more or be faithful servants?? God has much more grace than I!

I'm thankful for His amazing grace, for without it, I would surely be consumed! Back to dust, for sure!

I'm thankful that I can cast my cares upon Him. Kind of like casting a fishing line way out there...using all your force to get that line farther than the eye can see! Although I am not a fisherwoman at all! But you get the point!

I'm thankful
I don't have to carry baggage that weighs me down. God wants us to live in victory and freedom! That's been a test this week! Ugh!

I'm thankful that I choose to count it all joy as I'm facing various trials. And I know that in the testing of my faith, I will grow in endurance. And I will let endurance have it perfect result that I may be perfect or mature and lacking in nothing. I'm agreeing with James 1:2-4.

I'm thankful that I can climb up in Jesus' lap and He tells me that He loves me with an everlasting love and that I am precious to Him....He said that you are precious too! :)

I'm thankful for Susie at BlueBird Blogs that did a fabulous job on my new blog.

I'm thankful for the rain off and on the past week. It's going deep into the soil.

For more joy to fill your hearts with thankfulness, go to Iris's place!

Blessings of joy on your day!

Your blog is gorgeous! Isn't Susie amazing? I think her designs have literally changed the face of blogging.

And I, too, am SO thankful every single day that God is God and I am not. What an amazing thought!

James is my fave!

Your new blog is lovely!

His love is amazing, isn't it? I am glad that He is my comfort, peace and joy in my life--not sure what I would do without Him.

Your new design does look fabulous :). Susie has been redesigning a lot of my friend's blogs.

Thank you for sharing your thankfulness this week, despite your trails.

Be blessed today and always.

Beautiful...list and blog design. I am so glad that we can give our burdens to God...this is a challenge for me at times, but when I do this, the peace and freeness and security I feel in Him is indescribable. Also, I love the new design. Sincerely, Serving Him

Your blog is beautiful! I love the name as well. What a great list you have. Personally, I don't understand people who want to be gods! Too much pressure!

It is so wonderful having a God who bestows so much grace upon us.

Blessings to you!

Lovely post! Yes, thank God we do not have to put up with the lack of gratitude, the lack of grace, the lack of love and care that reign in this fallen world as He has to do-and still love us.
Thank God for God's endless love!
And thank you for stopping by and commenting.

EllieMae June 1, 2007 at 11:11 AM
