Thankful Thursday ~ Blessings

Blessed be the Lord! For he has heard the voice of my pleas for mercy.
The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.”
~ Psalm 28:6-7 (ESV – emphasis mine)

Do you ever have those days where you just feel totally defeated? When everything you touch just goes wrong; or you have to jump another hurtle? Girls (I am not discriminating, but I know that I don’t have any male readers 😀 ), I just had some of those days. Than God stepped in and shook me. I was about to write a Thankful post on Monday. On the days when I am down, God pours out His mercy with a huge bucket. But let me share with you…

  • I am thankful that God shakes me once in a while to remind me why I am blogging. I want to share with my readers my struggles that are met with His mercies. I want to decrease so that my Lord increases (paraphrased John 3:30). What a blessing it is that our Lord’s mercies are brand new every day…
  • I am thankful that God blessed me with an incredible patient, tenderhearted and encouraging husband. I don’t know how I would survive without my Sweetheart beside me…
  • I am thankful that God blessed me with some incredible friendships that developed over the internet. Thank you Laurel, Lynn and Terri to stand in the cap for me ALL.THE.TIME…
  • I am thankful that God blessed me with access to the internet. When I need encouragement during the week, I can just click on some Bible teachers at OnePlace.com. Not only did I listen to Beth’s continued study on Romans on Monday, but Pastor Ingram had a message that I think was straight from God (Spiritual Warfare 101). I don’t think that I clicked on that particular message by chance…
  • I am thankful that God blessed me with talented friends. Heather at Graced by Christ is a very talented artist and she has a giveaway in honor of her one year blog anniversary. Go check it out. I would love to have a painting from her…
  • I am thankful that God blessed me with a wonderful readership that takes part in Thankful Thursday. Thank you ladies for allowing me to be your hostess…
  • I am thankful that God blessed me with a wonderful Christian online magazine. If you have never read the articles on CWO’s Online Magazine, I urge you to check it out. Start today since the August issue was just published. Speaking of CWO’s Online Magazine; I have something in the works for the September issue 😛 …
  • I am thankful that God blessed me with a little talent to partake in Miss Mint’s August Scrap Challenge. If you are a digi-scrapper, check it out. There are two levels–beginner and advanced. The prize? One year Miss Mint’s creations – free. Hm, maybe I should have kept that to myself to increase my chances to win. Nah – I like to share…

What are you thankful for this week? Please do share with us. As usual, leave your link below with your valid blog-address. I do delete blog links if no Thankful Thursday post is publish – sorry…

Oh, one more thing: if you haven’t had the chance to sign up for the book giveaway, scroll down to add your name to the linky…

Be blessed today and as always…
