Top Ten Thanks

Well, last year I spent the week before Thanksgiving counting just a few of the things for which I am thankful. God has richly blessed me, and the least I can do is spend time thanking Him for all of those undeserved blessings! I encourage you to do the same!

I am thankful for:
  1. Jesus Christ, my Lord and my Savior, and His obedience to His Father even unto death.
  2. A country where I can (for now) freely speak the name of Jesus Christ.
  3. Parents who raised me to know and love the Lord.
  4. God's provision in even the tiniest circumstances.
  5. The sovereignty of God, in which I can rest and know that He is in control even when things appear to be spinning without order.
  6. Crisp, autumn morning air.
  7. A warm house that keeps me protected from that air!
  8. Boldness granted by the Holy Spirit, because I could never exercise it on my own!
  9. A wonderful, godly best friend who makes me laugh and smile, who prays with me and for me, and who graciously listens to me vent whether it's been a good or a bad day!
  10. A healthy, working body that allows me to eagerly and avidly serve the Lord.
