Thankful Thursday - March 13, 2008


Today I am thankful that I am not alone. God is always with me and has provided wonderful family and friends to be my side in times of need, in times of great rejoicing, and all those days that fall in between.

For several months now, I have felt God moving me in a different direction. I'm still not sure exactly where this is going to lead, but I feel there will be many changes along the way. The majority of the time I am excited to see where God will lead, but I also have those days when I'm not so sure and feel a bit leary and, then, some where I feel down-right scared. However, because God is so great, not only does he direct me in new and exciting directions, but he goes there with me... holding my hand all the way.

My Thankful Thursday post

I can relate to this post. Since the beginning of the year, I've been asking God (daily) to lead me - and He has been. Never know what's going to happen when I get up in the morning.

Yes, every day is another EXCITING ADVENTURE with GOD! HE doesn't always take us EXACTLY where we want to go... but PRAISE HIM... HE'S ALWAYS WITH US!

Hi Melanie....I look forward to hearing where that direction goes. It's always exciting to me when a friend feels called to so something 'different' or even out of his/her comfort zone. You blessed me today!


PS-It is a small world indeed! Although Lees Summit is much larger than it used to be, I still get out and about. Tell her I live West of the outdoor mall off the same road (now wouldn't THAT be funny if she did too?)

I know what you mean....sensing something is going on with God...and being excited and a bit scared at the same time....
TRUST! My friend Becky reminds me OFTEN...God is not a God of confusion....what wise words!
Be blessed!
peace on the journey!

Isn't it great that God is always there with us - especially at times when we feel scared :)...I take comfort in that and I start to learn that no matter what comes my way - I can face it.

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

Blessings to you and yours.

Aren't you glad that He sticks by our side? Even when the going hurts.
