Thankful Thursday

This morning, I am thankful for the study that my three friends and I are doing together over the summer.  It is called The One True God, and it is written by Paul David Washer.  It is a study on the attributes of God.  It has been such a rich study.  This past week, we talked about the self-sufficiency of God and the immutability of God.  We read these verses:

The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man,  nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything. (Acts 17:24-25)

I am thankful that my God is not a god of need.  He needs nothing, because he is the Creator and has made everything.  I am thankful that my God is not simply a bigger version of man.

I am also thankful for the way God has put our little study group together.  We have differing stories of how we came to faith, and I have been blessed by the things we have shared and learned together.

I am also thankful for the sense of "companionship" I find in studying.  It is not the same thing as fellowship, but I'm thankful that I know how to keep myself occupied when I have time on my hands.  I am thankful that I am not apprehensive about being alone with myself.

We've been studying the attributes of God in Sunday School and I've been so blessed by focusing on this subject. I'm glad that you are too, Kim.

'I am also thankful for the sense of "companionship" I find in studying.'

I've never thought of it that way exactly but I think I know what you mean. It's comforting, isn't it?
