I am thankful for Your love, Lord. It has been abundant.

I am forever thankful for life because life is an open door to live the way God wants us to live, next I am thankful for our creator who gave us life. There would be no me or us if God did not create humans. I am also thankful to Jesus for dying on the cross for our sins and giving us all a chance to live. I am thankful for the blessing I receive each and every day, and for this reason I feel like this is what makes me keep going on in life. Lastly, but not least I am thankful for forgiveness I am not a perfect person and I have made a lot of mistakes, but who doesn’t right? I sometimes feel like giving up because of the things I have been through and the mistakes I have made, but through the power of forgiveness from God I have and am continuing to learn how to forgive myself and others and move on with my life with God.

I am thankful for many things: I am not what I want to be, I am not where I should be, but thank Jesus I am not what I used to be. Who am I, that Jesus died on the cross for me? I am nothing without Jesus in my heart.

I'm thankful for where I am today. I remember 10 years ago where I was right after graduating high school. I had no direction and was living a wasted life. I was saved in late 2003. Ever since that time, I truly have felt the Lord's presence with me through all the seasons, good and bad, throughout the last ten years. What I have learned is God truly cares for us, and answers prayers.

I remember as a small child understanding what it meant to be thankful for something. I remember thinking how blessed I was to be born in the United States. I would think about the children all over the world who may not have the freedom I had to go to school or just play with my brother and sister instead of having to work all day. My mind could not fathom the absence of freedom in my world.
So now, when I am struggling or find myself becoming negative, I try to remember how easy it was to find something to be thankful for those many years ago. I am still so thankful God chose to allow me to live in a place where there is freedom and so much opportunity.

I am so thankful for what the Lord has done with my life. I was once a man who was headed towards destruction, hurting everyone around me. Now I get to be a light for the Lord and have real purpose in my life. My family is now blessed to have a new dad and husband who shows them love and points them to Jesus!

As I read this article it really made me think that there are so many things in this life that we should be thankful for. I am most thankful for the path the Jesus has chosen for me. He has given me the treasure of such a fantastic life, that I know many others do not have. I am very thankful for my health as there are many others in this world that are not healthy. The ability to walk and talk, as many are bound to a bed, or a wheel chair and cannot enjoy this life as I do. My children and my wife, as would I not know love without them. I also try to be thankful for many of the small things in life that I used to over look on a day to day basis and take for granted. God is good!!!

#1 I am thankful that God is real! Most of my life I thought the Bible was a good story book but never took it for truth until I came to know Christ. Now look where I am. #2 I am thankful God didn't turn His back on me although I turned from Him so many times. When I had my daughter and became a single mom in a blink of an eye I felt lost. I was raised by a single mom and saw life being hard for both of us. Now I knew my daughter wouldn't know the joy of having a father. #3 I am thankful that even if my daughter does not have an earthly father to lean her she will always have her heavenly Father to guide her. When I thought the whole world was against me my mother and grandmother, whom raised me, came to my aid. I was able to spend the last years of my grandma's life living with her and listening to her stories. #4 I am thankful for family who knows that people make mistakes but is willing to accept them back into the family when they need help and love. And already I am at the last one for this day. #5 I am thankful to have been accepted to Liberty University Online so I can further my understanding and love for God. I start this Spring semester.

I am grateful to God for His mercies that are new every morning. I am thankful to the Lord for given me a sound mind. In these perilous times, I am thankful for God's keeping power. When you think your situation is unbearable, there is someone whose situation makes yours seem like a mote. I am thankful for the ability to see, hear, smell, taste, and feel. I am thankful for those who bear the infirmities of the weak.
"Oh give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever." Ps 106:1. Kurt Carr penned some lyrics which stated "For every mountain You brought me over, for every valley You've seen me through. for every blessing Alleluia. For this I give You praise."

I am thankful for:
1. The trip I was able to take with my husband during the break between terms.
2. My husband of 32 years -- a man of God who has shown me what it means to love unconditionally here on earth. A veritable picture of living out how the Lord loves us.
3. Medicines that manage my chronic illness and allow me to dress myself and move about.
4. Our adult sons who love the Lord and seek to serve Him in their respective jobs.
5. My cats -- who entertain me.

While I won't post the full 5 things in my response. I will just say that a few minutes ago I put my twins to sleep. They are four years old. We have been saying the Lord's Prayer before they sleep over the past two weeks so that hopefully they will memorize it soon. This evening for an unknown reason my little girl began to cry when it ended. Perhaps she knew she would be going to sleep after this or I don't know the reason really. She didn't have words. I wouldn't rule out the presence of the Holy Spirit either. I just held her for a while and thanked God for her and her brother beside her. God is truly good and these twins and their older siblings are true gifts from Him.
