Thankful thru Scripture


This week....

I am thankful for strength that comes from God.
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Phillippians 4:13

I am thankful that I can give all my worries to God. I am thankful that He cares for me.
"Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you..." Psalm 55:22

I am thankful for God's gift of peace.
"I am leaving you with a gift - peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn't fragile like the peace the world gives. So don't be troubled or afraid." John 14:27

I am thankful that God listens and hears us when we turn to Him.
"I waited patiently for God to help me; then He listened and heard my cry." " Psalms 40:1

I am thankful that God is always with me.
"Be strong! Be courageous! Do not be afraid of them! For the Lord your God will be with you. He will neither fail you nor forsake you." Deuteronomy 31:6

Those are just a few of the things I am thanful for this week.  What about you?  What are you thankful for?

Great list of thankfuls, Melanie! I'm with you...thanking God for the treasure of His Word!

In our Bible study right now (Breaking Free), we just completed a chapter about God's unfailing love. Reading verse after verse after verse about His love for us has flooded my heart with joy and gratitude. That's what I'm most thankful for this week...God's abundant, unchanging, unfailing love. What a treasure!
