Thank You Lord~








DEAR GOD


I want to thank You for what you have already done. I am not going to wait until I see results or receive rewards; I am thanking you right now. I am not going to wait until I feel better or things look better; I am thanking you right now. I am not going to wait until people say they are sorry or until they stop talking about me; I am thanking you right now.. I am not going to wait until the pain in my body disappears ; I am thanking you right now. I am not going to wait until my financial situation improves; I am going to thank you right now. I am not going to wait until the children are asleep and the house is quiet; I am going to thank you right now. I am not going to wait until I get promoted at work or until I get the job; I am going to thank you right now. I am not going to wait until I understand every experience in my life that has caused me pain or grief; I am thanking you right now. I am not going to wait until the journey gets easier or the challenges are removed;

I am thanking you right now. I am thanking you because I am alive. I am thanking you because I made it through the day's difficulties. I am thanking you because I have walked around the obstacles.


I am thanking you because I have the ability and the opportunity to do more and do better.

I' m thanking you because FATHER, YOU haven't given up on me.

God is just so good, and he's good all the time.
Thank you for all your prayers for my mother in law. She is out of ICU and off the respirator but they still do not know what caused all these problems. She is still taking dialysis and losing blood. I hope this will be a wake call for her, in that she will come to realize the important things in her life such as God and her children.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Hi Lisa,
I'm glad your MIL is out of ICU and off that respirator at least. God draws people to him in His own way and His own time. Yes, He is so good!

I love the pictures from your last post. You have a beautiful family!

I can't seem to catch up to save my life!! It's been a busy summer for me and it seems to be going by so fast! I'm trying to spend time with the grandkids while school is out. Maybe when fall comes I'll get back to posting on a regular basis! :)

Love ya,
Hope

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

It always make me feel so good to Thank the Lord for all the many,many wonderful things he does for me and through me.

Sometimes when we come to times like this in our life, life your MIL has just gone through, it does make us take notice of important things. Prayfully this will be so with her. I do hope she gets better. connie from Texas

I'll be praying for your MIL. And what a blessing to come over here and see you thanking the Lord during such a tough time. That is what I think we should always do....although it isn't always easy to do. Thank you for this encouraging post Sister!!
