Thankful Tuesday- 1 Peter 3:4 & Unity

Today, I am thankful for answered prayer. I am thankful for a God that loves me more than I can even comprehend. But more than anything I am painfully thankful that the word of God does not ever cease to convict my heart.

Last night in bible study we discussed "unity" in the body of Christ and this verse pierced my heart. I realized the Lord has MUCH work to do on my heart. He so desires for the body of Christ to be unified and this is not for everyone else but for me.

Last night, we discussed practical ways to stay unified in the body of Christ and praying for people who we are not unified was what touched my heart the most. Oh, I feel like I could write a book from here...not really...but there is so much more to say...

Just thankful for a convicted heart...it means God has not given up on me yet!

Psalm 40:5-6, 8
Many, O Lord my God, are the wonderful works which You have done, and Your thoughts toward us; no one can compare with You! If I should declare and speak of them, they are too many to be numbered......You have given me the capacity to hear and obey Your law..... I delight to do Your will, O my God; yes, 
Your law is within my heart.
