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.”

There is An Appointed Time for Everything Ecclesiastes 3

Just a reminder that Spring will be here soon!!!
Genesis 1:14
Then God(*ELOHIM) said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night,
and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;
Galatians 4:10
You observe days and months and seasons and years.
Psalm 104:19
He made the moon for the seasons; The sun knows the place of its setting.

We have had an awful draught this year.
The Summer looked like the dead of Winter.
The Winter looks a little like Spring with the green Winter grass that came up after a 2″ rain.
The 80 degree Winter days made us think that it was Spring, until a cold front came down and reminded us it is still Winter for awhile longer.
That is okay,  because we serve the maker of the Seasons and we are Thankful for them however they come to us.

Acts 14:17
…in that He did good and gave you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons,
satisfying your hearts with food and gladness.
Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8
There is an appointed time for everything.
And there is a time for every event under heaven-
A time to give birth and a time to die;
A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
A time to kill and a time to heal;
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to weep and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn and a time to dance.
A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing.
A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;
A time to be silent and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate;
A time for war and a time for peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:11
He has made everything appropriate in its time
He has also set eternity in their heart,
yet so that man will not find out the work
which God has done from the beginning even to the end.
Romans 11: 33
Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!

ELOHIM: The Hebrew word that means   Creator.
In  Genesis 1:1 and following we read the story of all creation.
It gives us answers as to why we are here.
Also read Psalm 139
and it will tell you how God knew you before you were even
formed in your mother’s womb.
It tells you why you are here. God created you and He wanted you here.

for the devil and his angels;
