Thankful Thursday

In November, Rebecca hosted a month long Thanksgiving festival.  Daily, many of us shared things for which we were thankful.  It was a great blessing.

I have occasionally posted Thankful Thursday (I do love alliteration!), and I have decided to do this again throughout 2010.  It was such a good thing in November to be reminded of how thankful we are.  Thanksgiving breeds humility, and we all need that.  I invite anyone to leave a comment about things for which they are thankful.  Yes, yes, I am being a copy-cat, but copying Rebecca in this instance is a good thing!

This morning, I am thankful for the words I read in my devotions this morning, in Psalm 6:

Depart from me, all you workers of evil,
for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping.
The Lord has heard my plea;
the Lord accepts my prayer.
10 All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled;
they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment.

I am thankful that the Lord hears me when I weep and that he hears my pleas.  While we may not have enemies like David did, some people do.  There are places in the world where persecution exists beyond anything we understand here in North America.   A day may come when we are persecuted more.  We are being persecuted in subtle ways here in Canada, with various forms of legislation that seek to inhibit the gospel and biblical living.  It is a comfort now to know that the Lord hears our pleas, and that He will in the future.

Please share a thankful thought!

I'm thankful that we have a snow blower with an electric starter.

I'm thankful for our warm little cottage today! And I hope you won't mind that I'm going to imitate you in focusing on my reasons for thankfulness throughout this coming year.

Ps. 6 was in my Bible reading this morning as well! I too am thankful He hears my pleas and saves me according to His steadfast love!

I'm also thankful for home and being able to stay inside today.

I'm thankful for this, which I read this morning in the Valley of Vision: "It is not feeling the Spirit that proves my saved state but the truth of what Christ did perfectly for me." Wonderful truth!

Thankful Thursday is an excellent thing, and I'm happy to join in.

I'm thankful for my two grandsons who only live a couple of houses down from us! They bring much joy and blessings to us.
