Gets you thinking


As I sat in church this morning and we sang the wonderful old hymn"How Great Thou Art", it got my gears turning in the old brain.Now stop and think how great our God is.Think back to this past week how God has blessed you and your family.Now look back to think how blessed you've been since the first of the year.Come on you know there are many things to be thankful for.Have you been able to pay your bills? Do you have clothes on your back?Did you eat yesterday?Have you heard the laughter of children?
I have had a lot of talks with God these past weeks and he has been so ever faithful to me.And even when I am not always so faithful to him.There are times I do things and say things I know are not pleasing to him yet God is always at my side.How great is that? There are friends who would not be there the way God always is.
I've had some concerns about my mom's health and God has answered that and she seems to be feeling some what better this week.I am thankful for each day i still have my parents.I know with my mothers heart problems she could go very suddenly.But I also know like with others God will strengthens me.
I heard of a friend who will be starting a new job next month. What a praise that is.I had an other friend ask for prayers for a major decision he needs to make.
How Great Thou Art!!!! How Great Thou Art!!!!!
We may not always think he hears us but for some reason this week I think the light just shined a little brighter as to how my walk with the Lord needs to be a little closer and more faithful like he is to me.I am truly blessed and hope you are too.
Thanks be to God for he is good!!!!

Amen! I usually realize how much I have to be thankful for but I do have my days of whining or crabbing and then something always happens to remind me of what I have been blessed with! Thank "you" for reminding me of that as well! ;)

I'm blessed to have friends that are always there for me, but I hear what you are saying. We have been thru many difficult times. People ask "How do you deal with that?".....simple answer...."Faith"
