Thankful Thursday


Today Iris talks about being thankful for His precious Word. Oh, I too am SO thankful for His Word. I am so thankful that it offers wisdom, hope, promise, love.... I am thankful that His Word is NOT just words on page, but that it is ALIVE. I am thankful that He speaks through His Word. I am thankful that He guides me and encourages me through His Word.

I am also thankful for new beginnings (see At the Well and Don't Waste.. posts below).

Thank You, Lord, that You are a God of new beginnings. Thank You that Your mercy is new each morning. Thank You that when I am in a "funk" and haven't been seeking You with all my heart, that I can "start over." All I need to do is turn around and turn towards You. I find that You are right there waiting for me.

I am SO thankful, Lord for my small group bible study and all of the precious women. How wonderful that You bless us with friends/Sisters to encourage, sharpen, and challenge us!

What are you thankful for today? Won't you take a few minutes and "count your blessings?" Take a few minutes to ponder what you are thankful for. Then, stop over at Iris' to check out more thankfulness. Also, please visit Laced With Grace for a super giveaway!

I loved reading the thoughts of your heart, Tracy. We serve an awesome God and I am so grateful He has given us His Words, not just words on a page but the Word made Flesh and the Word alive in us. Happy Thankful Thursday!

Hi, Tracy!
I wanted to take the time to invite you to join me on Fridays for a "sharing time". I have started a "Meme" (is that what you call them?) called "What Are You Learning?" You can stop by on Fridays and either leave a comment sharing what the Lord is teaching you in your personal quiet time, or you can link (Mr. Linky) to your blog, and write your own post sharing what you are learning. I have a "button" on my sidebar that you can put on yours if you are interested! It is just an attempt at getting women in the Word consistantly, and to provide a time where we can testify to whatHe is teaching us. I would love to have you join us! This past Friday was the 2nd week, and we had over 20 join us. I was thrilled! I leave it up all weekend too, incase people have stuff going on Fridays, that gives them the weekend to share!
God Bless!!
