Thankful Thursday is here again, and it is your time to share with with, all the things God has did in your life, and what you are thankful for.
I am thankful God save me over 36 years ago, I will forever be thankful for that, it is always first on my list. I am so thankful for a husband that loves me, and take care of me so well, he wears so many hats, what a talented and wonderful man God choose for me.
"Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God." (2 Corinthians 9:11)
The themes of praise and thanksgiving are very prominent throughout Scripture. The word "praise" and its derivatives occur over 330 times, and "thanks," with its derivatives, over 150 times. When applied to our relation to God, "thanks" are given to Him for what He has done for us, and "praise" for who He is and what He has done for the whole creation. If frequency of occurrence were an indicator, we might conclude that thanksgiving is important and praise-giving is twice as important!
Now it is your turn, what are thankful for?
Abiding in His great love, Barbara
