Thankful Tuesday

I was reminded of two scriptures this morning in praying for an acquaintance that is struggling with some issues in her pregnancy. These scriptures have meant so much to me. His word has been the greatest comfort of my life so today I'm thankful for them! 

I remember well all my troubles,
    and I am very sad.
But then I think about this,
    and I have hope:
We are still alive because
    the Lord’s faithful love never ends.
Every morning he shows it in new ways!
    You are so very true and loyal!
I say to myself, “The Lord is my God,
    and I trust him.”

The Lord is good to those who wait for him.

He is good to those who look for him.

It is good to wait quietly

for the Lord to save them.

Lam 3

The Lord says, “If someone trusts me, I will save them.

    I will protect my followers who call to me for help.
When my followers call to me, I will answer them.
    I will be with them when they are in trouble.
    I will rescue them and honor them.
I will give my followers a long life
    and show them my power to save.

Psalm 91

 I was also reminded of these scriptures:

The JOY of The Lord is my strength! Nehemiah 8:10

This is such a great reminder to me that it matters not what everyone else thinks. The fact that The Lord is pleased with what I'm doing is all that matters! 

I decided to choose Life and Joy! Thankful that by God's grace I can make that choice!! 

Also, I'm so very thankful for 

This little stinker

My sweet friend Emily who came to visit me this weekend and went to Beth Moore Conference with me! 

I am also very thankful today because I was given an opportunity to share my story with a MOPS group in town and it was just such a reminder of God's faithfulness throughout the last few years! 

I wish I had time to blog about the Beth Moore conference but there is no time now so I'll leave it at that today! 

That my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever! Psalm 30:12
