Thankful

Bless the Lord o my soul and everything within me, bless His holy name...

I'm thankful for so many things that might sound very basic but I never ever want to take God's blessings in my life for granted.

For being a daughter to God and having a relationship where I can call Him my loving father.

For being married to the most wonderful man. My husband is very busy and under a lot of pressure but he never neglects me or our relationship.

For laughter in my home constantly. There's always a reason to smile even on the very blue days!

For my mum and dad and my siblings..God continually keeps them in good and perfect health.

For my sisters in law and their kids and husbands and for my brother in law. God continually keeps them all in health and we have peace.

For healthy, safety, and provision for hubby and I. It's wonderful to know God consistently watches over us.

For the way God always tries to get my attention and get His word to me. This week I have once again been reminded of how He alone should be first place in my life and not allow anyone or anything take His place. Thank you father for reminding me of what is most important.

For the wonderful friends that surround me. Sometimes I don't find comfort/understanding where I expect but God has given me some friends who continue to stand by me.

I'm thankful for all these and more, what are you thankful for???

Right now I can barely kneel or utter a word of thanks to God; I guess this is the test of praising God when things go wrong.. I don't even know how to make a head of what I'm going through except to say, God, I do not deserve this.
But then, I'm happy you have lots to be thankful to God for.

When we focus on our problems/issues, they become so big, we can't see any other thing working for us. Everyone has at least one reason to be thankful, we might just choose to ignore them. I have many reasons to give a comment like what you wrote but I have chosen to never let the devil have the victory in my life..and when I choose to worship, when I choose to be thankful, He is magnified and my problems start to look smaller. It might be rough but I'm so sure you do have a reason to be thankful.
