Thankful Thursday

So I am writing my Thankful Thursday on Wednesday as read this you will understand why.

I'm thankful for God's timing and plans. I had no idea what this week was going to hold but I sure thought I did.

I start out thinking I was going back to my Nanny job this week. When I called the family they said they didn't need me this week. I am concerned I may not be needed next week or at all. The lady who filled in for me charges a lot less then I do.

Then today things started happen. Our dog Kaci who is the Queen of the house had an injury and had to be taken for emergency vet care. That was a high bill I thought, God what is going on. Then tonight my father had a small heart attack. He has had at least 2 every year for the past 8 years. He is afraid to be alone. Tomorrow my mother needs to go for a mammogram early in the morning. I will go sit with my father. I fell God is pushing me to tell my dad the gospel message. Dad usually says
I don't want to hear that stuff. I feel God is telling me to tell him even if he say that to me tomorrow.

So I am thankful I am not working this week. I mumbled and complained but I should know better God's plans and timing are not mine. God's is better. Thank you my precious Lord.

So tomorrow morning I will have a talk with my father. I'll let you know how it goes.

Proverbs 16:9 In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.

Proverbs 19:21
Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.

I am praying for God to give you the words to say to your dad. I am covering your dad in prayers, for his salvation, and his health.

Those are a couple of my favorite verses that I have to think about quite often when life doesn't go exactly the way I had planned it. I will pray for you as you try to talk to your dad. I pray that he will open his heart to the gospel message.
