Sitting with my Lord this morning
I was thinking of and praying about all the needs that came to mind
or have been heavy on my heart.
I hate praying a ‘shopping list’ of, ” Please, this, and please, that,”
but, truly, we ARE so needy.
Pastor recently was preaching about thankfulness,
and I keep finding those words, “thankful,” “with thanks,” “thanksgiving”
scattered generously throughout God’s Word.
So I put my ‘list’ aside and started counting my blessings…
A comfortable home to protect my family and welcome those who need shelter,
daily bread that has never been missing from our table,
a faithful and faith-filled husband,
children who I’ve been blessed to nurture and soon will be sending out into the world,
God’s own word, always available at my fingertips,
His Spirit in my soul,
the assurance of a place in His Kingdom one glorious day
thanks to the sacrifice of my precious Savior…
I have every reason to live,
and no fear to die.
“Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death.
For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”Philippians 1:20-21
