Thankful Thursday

Psalms 119:27 Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.

Wow I have so very much to be thankful for, I have lead a blessed life, It seems God has poured out his blessings on me since I can remember, from the time he sent a wonderful young couple to adopt me and love me as their own, to now when he holds my hand daily in all I do, oh me Lord God you have been so good to me, I know I can trust the lord, he has never failed me or let me down one time in 67 years, whewwww what a track record he has, mine for him is sure not that good or any where near, I am ashamed to say I have let my precious lord down before, I have turned my back on him, and gotten mad at him, but he did correct me, and used the rod of correction upon me, I can honestly say, He is in my life forever, my earnest prayer is that he will keep me close by his side, in his will for ever, if I start to have a pity party, I think now my lord sure went through a lot more hurt, rejection, and pain than I ever had, and he carried out the will of his father, he went all the way to the cross for me, how can I quit half way through on him.

Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

Luke 11:9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

Now please lord give me the zeal, and the will keep on going for you, telling every one in my path what you have did for me, and just what you can do for them as well.  God is no respector of persons, he is always just waiting to help one of us in need, he is always just a prayer away, many time we do not have what we want because we simply do not ask, Jesus said ask and ye shall receive, so that tells me if I do not have, it is because I have not asked, just as we give gifts to our children our heavenly Father is ready and waiting to give his children the gifts of love, obedience, faithfulness, and the assurance that we will one day be with him in heaven.

WOW he is so awesome, and one day I will sit at his feet in awe, and let him speak to me in person, and not only through his written word, oh I am so ready for that day, but my father still has a word for me to do, and I will be the obedient child and go about my fathers business while I can.  Now let me ask, will take the message God has given you to the world around you, will you be an obedient child?

Good reminder. I was starting to have a pity party yesterday. Need to get busy with doing what I am called to do at those times.
