Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all my Canadian friends!
It is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada and I thought I would share some things that I am thankful for...
I am thankful for the many blessings in my life; the love of my family and friends, my home, the clothes in my closet, and good food on the table. I never ever take those blessings for granted!
I am thankful for the freedom I have in this country to worship God.
I am thankful for prayer...
Many of you have prayed for me this past year and I want to thank you.
"The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much." ~ James 5:16
I am thankful for the Word of God...
"He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength." ~ Isaiah 40:29
When I am weak, He makes me strong.
"Whatever is true, honourable, right, pure, lovely, of good report ...let your mind dwell on these things." ~ Philippians 4:8
Letting my mind dwell on pleasant things, keeps me in a positive frame of mind when perhaps everything around me is telling me otherwise.
The Lord has rescued me from so many things and in so many ways that I can't help but give Him praise for the good things in my life.
"Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits;
Who pardons all your iniquities; Who heals all your diseases;
Who redeems your life from the pit;
Who crowns you with loving kindness and compassion;
Who satisfies your years with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle." ~ Psalm 103: 1-5
