Thankful Thursday 1/7

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

Life seems to be a bit overwhelming lately. Our financial situation has been stressful. My husband's Nana had a mini-stroke and was hospitalized a few weeks ago. The day after Christmas our basement filled with 6 inches of water after the sump pump stopped working. And yesterday we found out that my brother-in-law was in a serious car accident and is in the ICU. Through all of this, I have prayed and wondered how this could be a part of God's plan.

But I trust in Him and remember this verse:

Psalm 59:16: But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.

I am thankful today that I am a part of an amazing family who supports each other. I am thankful that I have an amazing God who is there to turn to when things are difficult. And I am hopeful.

What are you thankful for today? Join Sonya at Truth 4 the Journey to link up.

That is a wonderful thing to be thankful for! When life gets like that for me, I remember this verse:

Philippians 4:4-7 (New International Version)

4Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

This year has been the hardest year of our lives too. I believe the Lord is purifying his bride through numerous trials.
The only way we can get through any trial that we face in life is by being Thankful for it and trust that the Lord has our
best interest at heart.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJV
In every thing GIVE THANKS: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

God Bless you.
