Thankful Thursday

I am so thankful for the life God planned for me. I really do enjoy my life. Sure there are times I am sad and disappointed but God fills my life with so much joy.

I am thankful I no longer worry like I use to. I use to lay awake at night worried about things but not any more. I accepted that worry is a sin. When worry sets in I ask God to forgive me and heal me. Don't get me wrong I do worry once in awhile but not much. What joy to have peace even when you don't know where the money will come from. I also found by not giving into worry God is working in beautiful ways.

I am thankful God answers prayers in His way and not mine. Oh, I could plan how He should do things but when I let God do it His way, I'm amazed at how things come to be.

I'm thankful for my friends. Hubby and I have very close friends who we know will always stand by us just as we will stand by them. We may not always agree but we do always love and support. This week end the husband will leave to work with World Vision in another state. His wife will be staying behind for the first year. She will visit often yet they both know hubby and I will be here to help out in any way.

I am thankful Christ died for me so I can live.
