Let Us Be Thankful

A lot of people are posting 30 days of Thankfulness on their blogs or Face Book page. I admire people who can do that but I just cannot keep up with posting everyday for 30 days.  So, I decided to write a single post of some of the things I am Thankful for.
 God
2 Samuel 22:50
“Therefore I will give thanks to You, O LORD, among the nations, 
And I will sing praises to Your name.
1 Chronicles 16:8
Oh give thanks to the LORD, call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the peoples.
Jesus Christ-Mercy and Salvation
1 Corinthians 15: 57
but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory 
through our Lord Jesus Christ.
I Peter 3:21
Corresponding to that, baptism now saves you–not the removal of dirt from the flesh, but an appeal to God for a good conscience–through the resurrection of Jesus Christ….
Family
Husband
Ephesians 5: 22
Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, 
Child
Proverbs 31: 28
Her children rise up and bless her; Her husband also, and he praises her…
Friends
Proverbs 18:24 
A man of too many friends comes to ruin,
But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
John 15:14
You are My friend if you do what I command you.
Mother
Proverbs 31:28
Mother-In-Law
 Ruth 1:16
But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or turn back from following you; for where you go, I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God.
Even though I am most thankful for my Husband, Son, Sister,  Nieces, Mother-In-Law and extended family and many more things too numerous to name, I realize that only Two on my list really matter.
God and Jesus Christ are the Alpha and the Omega. 
Revelation 11:13
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
Revelation 1:8
I am the Alpha and the Omega, “says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
So, what am I thankful for?
GOD and JESUS CHRIST
Acts 4:12
“And there is salvation in no one else;
for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”

Do We treat God Like He is Just Another one of our Loved Ones????

Adapted and Reposted 3-26-2011

Acts 17:27

I walked outside this morning and heard my Mother’s wind chimes. 
I said, “Hello Mother.” 
I thought about my favorite niece and great niece who are on a road trip down Route 66.
The thought came to me. 
Do we treat God like He is just another one of our relatives or friends?
Do we spend time with Him only when it is convenient for us?
Do we go to scheduled worship services so we can say,” okay I did my duty for this week.?”
Do we pray only when we feel so guilty that we cannot stand it anymore or when we need something? 
Subconsciously we say okay, “I’ll pray so I can ease my conscience.”
Why is it that we only have time for God when it is convenient for us?
Acts 17:24-30
“The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands;
nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things;
and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation,
that they world seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;”
for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’
“Being then the children of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and thought of man.”
“Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent,”
Let us aspire to spend more time with our Heavenly Father and our earthly family and friends.
