I have just come from Iris' blog, Sting My Heart, where she is hosting Thankful Thursday. Her bubbly, thankful heart are such a blessing. I am so thankful she gives us this wonderful opportunity to give thanks to the Lord.
Today I am so thankful for prayer and for the way it draws us together and to the heart of the Father. There is such power in prayer. To know the Holy, Righteous Lord bends down to listen to my words is nothing short of miraculcous.
I am thankful for answered prayer in keeping our family safe as we all traveled to different places.
I am thankful we have a President who was able to offer real comfort to the family and friends (and to a grieving nation) of the victims of the Virginia Tech massacre as he quoted scripture and pointed us to the source of all comfort.
I am thankful that even when it seems as though evil has gotten the upper hand, there is a God in heaven who remains in control of all things. We can trust Him, because we know Him. He is all He says He is.
I am thankful to be a part of a group who has come together to help one of us. It is so exciting to see what we have been able to do for Heather and her family. We joined together in the kind of unity Jesus prayed for. We set aside any differences that could possibly divide us and united in love. I wonder what we could do if all of the churches who believe in the One True God set aside the things we have allowed to divide us and came together as one. I think we would see God move in a very powerful way. We saw it this week, and I am thankful.
Have a blessed day
