Thankful Thursday

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:4-7

Today I am especially thankful for the work that God has been doing in my heart this past year. He has led me to some great resources--books, friends, online messages and articles, and blogging--that have been such wonderful encouragement. Through prayer, scripture memory, daily Bible reading, a day of thankfulness, and marriage goals my heart has been renewed and (most days) a real peace that passeth all understanding has filled my life.

Now I have great expectations for the Lord to do the same kind of work in my family. I just have to let go and let God do the work. And I'm already thankful for His good, pleasing, and perfect plan for our lives and the work He has yet to do.

Join us at Sting My Heart. What are you thankful for this week? How has God blessed your life?

I am also a quality time person. Now that we have two kids and getting away is harder, we have learned to do a date night after the kids go to bed without ever leaving the house. Its fun!! Thanks for sharing your TT list!

I particularly like it when you mentioned the "let-go-and-let-God" thing. I agree with that. Happy TT.

I know, sometimes it is very hard to wait on God's timing, but I know that His timing is perfect - always.

Thank you so much for sharing your thankful heart with us this week.

Blessings to you and yours.
