Today I’m Thankful

 There is sooooo much I have to be thankful for.  Last night the Lord prompted me to read Psalm 50.  Wow!  I am so convicted.  He said in verse 14 “Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God, & keep the vows you made to the Most High”.  So often I try to give the Lord something else as a sacrifice.  I want my service to Him to be my offering, & I expect my ministry to be the praise that He deserves.  Those things are great, but they do not take the place of a child who is truly thankful for what comes from the hand of her Father.  I have nothing that did not come from my Father’s hand.

He goes on to say in verse 23 “But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me.”    My thankfulness should be the best & most often used form of worship in my life. 

So……….today I am thankful for:

  • Barry–this weekend he showed me what a wonderful, giving man he really is!  He made a huge sacrifice so that he could hear me sing & then drove home in the middle of the night alone. 
  • Scripture—wow!  I love the voice of God in print!
  • My dad’s health is failing–but He’s looking forward to being with the Lord.
  • My CD’s shipped today!  They should arrive on Thursday!
  • I’ve been able to travel 3 of the last 4 weekends to sing. 
  • My mom’s pneumonia is FINALLY beginning to get better.
  • God is my provider.
  • I feel good.
  • I have a laptop that allows me to check email away from home.
  • I am staying with my folks while they recuperate…..
  • God brought my brother & sister-in-law into the business with us, so I can be here with my folks for as long as they need me–and the business will not suffer!

I could go on & on, but I’m just content to say “Thank You, Lord!
