Finding Your Thankful Heart

“So Abraham called the name of that place, “The Lord will provide”; as it is said to this day, “On the mount of the Lord it shall be provided.” ESV~ Genesis 22:14

Has the Lord ever just “provided” a way where there seemed to be no way? Has He ever just plunked something truly awesome into your very lap? He has mine. I bet He has your as well.

I came home last night from Bible Study shivering, shaking and fevered. I wish I had felt good enough to enjoy it to the fullest….It truly was an awesome study…called “Wising Up”. It is a study on wisdom….in Proverbs. An incredible study! Things I have not “thought” of before. I pray that I grow. And “wise-up”.

I am not feeling very sporty this morning…but that is no reason not to be thankful. I had another fever early this morning…sweated it off…took a bath—to get that “feeling” off of me…and will have to make this short and sweet. I can’t seem to stop coughing….you know what goes with coughing at my age??? If you don’t ….you will one day.

Even with body aches, I am thankful that I have limbs to ache. Even with my eyes hurting…I am thankful that I can see. Even with my coughing spells, I am thankful that I have lungs that work, a nose that smells fragrant flowers. I am thankful for life. And the Life that is mine…abundantly and eternally.

Do you have that life? John 10:10 says, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” NKJV The Lord came to “give life”. The enemy is all about destroying it —killing it—-stealing life–because he does not have that Life….. I choose Christ. I choose Life. In Him do I trust.

I am thankful for each of you. Every single one. For more thankfuls…that are much more fun to read today…visit Iris! Thank you Iris for keeping our thankful hearts going!
