Thankful Thursday

Today’s theme for Thankful Thursday is random, you can find more Thankful Thursday posts here.

Psalm 68:4-6
Sing to God, sing praise to His name, extol Him who rides on the clouds-His name is the Lord- and rejoice before Him, A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy dwelling, God sets the lonely in families, He leads forth the prisoners with singing: but the rebellious live in a sun scorched land. NIV

~I am so thankful that I have a heavenly Father who has taught me that He is so different than an earthly Father. When you have had bad experiences with an earthly father it is difficult to grasp that your heavenly Father could be any different. It is the only lense you have. But when God takes those scales from your eyes and shows you the unfathomable grace and love available from Him, it is the most amazing gift!
~I praise the Almighty God that circumstance does not determine my joy and peace (although I am thankful this year of difficult circumstance is coming to an end, don’t get me wrong). We serve a God who is not surprised when the Devil attacks and grants us access to peace, joy and hope no matter what arrows are being launched in our direction.
~I am thankful for the women of God, both in my blog world and in real life, that come along side me as a source of encouragement and hold me accountable when I need it. That is the meaning of true Christian community and I am so grateful for that.
~I am thankful for the holidays and the ways that God uses to remind all of us how truly blessed we are!
~I am thankful for my hubby, who works so hard to provide for us and then comes home and is the best husband and father he can be. God has truly provided an excellent earthly role model for our boys on how to be a godly husband, father and man. And,part of that is that when he messes up he apologizes and shows that human side to the boys and how real men acknowledge mistakes and do what they can to correct them. Praise the Lord!

  2. Melissa, this is a great list. I was blessed to have an awesome earthly father and to know that our Heavenly Father exceeds that beyond that which we can even imagine — WOW.

    I’m thankful for you. As I have gone through some icky stuff the last couple of months, I haven’t been as faithful a friend as I should be but I’m thankful that you are still here and still you.
