Thankful Thursday ~ Providence

“So Abraham called the name of that place, “The Lord will provide”; as it is said to this day, “On the mount of the Lord it shall be provided.””
~ Genesis 22:14 (ESV ~ emphasis mine)

Ha – so my post from last week disappeared, except the Bible passage and the links to the participants. I wonder what happened? I tell you – this blogging business can be very tricky. I wonder if I can find my post from last week…

This week I am thankful for His provision in my life. It boggles my mind sometimes how generous our Lord is. Specifically I am thankful for…

  • Thank you Lord for given me Your Word so I may always find the comfort I need when I am down…
  • I am thankful that the Lord is helping me to keep focus what is really important in life. Although my job is really demanding and I don’t agree with some of what is happening, I am content (only through prayer…)…
  • I am thankful for our house, food, running water. I always take these things for granted, but there are some without…
  • I am thankful that the Lord grants me health. I have seen so many people being sick – I have been fairly healthy all my life…
  • I am thankful that the Lord gave me thoughts on a devotion I wrote on Monday night. I was totally empty, but He filled me up – thank you sweet Jesus…
  • I am thankful that I had patience to up-grade the devotional blog manually last weekend (although it gave me some more gray hairs…). I don’t like messing with up-grades, but they are necessary…
  • I am thankful that the Lord provided some additional writers for Laced with Grace. I will let you know next week who the new writers are 😛 . I am also thankful that one of my sweet friends will be returning to write for Laced with Grace next month. Laurel – it means a lot to me that you are…
  • And last but not least I am thankful that the Lord has placed such a patient husband by my side…

What are you thankful for this week? Please do share with us. If you have posted your own thankful post, please leave your link below. I will try to make it this week to visit all of you.

Thank you for stopping by today…blessings to you and yours,

  1. Ah sweet friend, you bless me. I too am thankful for God watching me every step of the way. I appreciate dishwashwers, boys who put the dishes away, and food to eat at night =) It is the things we don’t think about until they are gone. Have a wonderful day!!

  2. We are on the same page this week….the PROVIDENCE of God…all around us…
    your list is wonderful…so genuine and real…that is what we LOVE about you!!
    Have a Happy Thursday!

  3. Amy says:

    Oh amen! Gotta be thankful for running water, power and food. They are things we take for granted when other third world countries don’t have those luxuries.

  4. Lynn Donovan says:


    Every week, I feel like I am right in sync with you. Your thankful heart always encourages me. Awesome post. Love you.

  5. Karen H. says:

    Good Evening Iris,
    “HAPPY THANKFUL THURSDAY” once again except it’s early. I just wanted to let you know that I have my “THANKFUL THURSDAY” post ready to be published early in the morning. I have it saved for tonight as I will have to add a few more things in the morning, but it will be posted around 5:00a.m. to 5:30a.m. I so enjoyed your “THANKFUL THURSDAY” list. I have the one about the utilities posted as well. We all take those things for granted and there are people out there that don’t even have what we have. Take care my friend and have a great evening. May God Bless You and Yours.

    Love & Hugs,
    Karen H.

  6. Ruth says:

  7. Susan says:

    Hi Iris,

    Thanks once again for hosting Thankful Thursday. I’m so thankful for YOU! I enjoyed your story on CWO.

    So blessed things are going well for you. Great list!


  8. Ann says:

    God’s providence is just amazing and so abounding! Thanks for your testimony of all the ways He’s provided for you this week.

  9. Tonya says:

    Iris, I’m inspired by your list. You are right.. there are so many things we take for granted. If we keep our focus on GOD and all that HE has done we will quickly find our blessings are endless… AMEN? =-)

  10. It’s so awesome that the Lord gives us just what we need for the jobs He’s placed before us. Sorry for the extra gray hairs though! 🙂

  11. Denise says:

    Beautiful thankful list dear.

  12. snippets says:

    i sometimes don’t like making upgrades, too, but they are indeed necessary. like you, they also add to my already beginning gray hairs! 😉
    have a blessed week ahead!

  13. Ellen says:

    That’s neat that when your mind is blank and you don’t know what to write that God gives you the words to write. It’s great that you’re open to what He wants you to share.

  14. Vicki says:

    Hi precious friend….rejoicing with you over such a wonderful list this Thursday. I’ve been going through a rough patch and had no real post for TT, so I did something else.
    God bless you and keep you smack dab in His unfailing love.

    I think it is so wonderful how I wrote on God providing for us and then I popped over here and saw this! God is so good!

    I am excited Laurel’s is returning too! Thank you for all you do! Great list as always….

  20. Lori Madison says:

    Hello Dear Iris,

    Yes, to have health is such a gift indeed. Everyday that we feel strong and healthy, we should remember the Lord and tell Him Thank you, Thank you!! Have an amazing week.

  21. Mary says:

    Hey Iris. I’m so thankful that God gives us encouragement when we need to be lifted up. Just yesterday, I asked God for encouragement for my honey and I. And God is so very very faithful. By last night He had brought the encouragement that we needed. Bless you for sharing today. And thanks for hosting this special day.

  22. Cheryl says:

  25. heather says:

    I realized this week too that there are SO many things that I take for granted. Yet everything I have comes from the Lord!

  26. BP says:

    Thank you for hosting this. Thankful Thursday has blessed my life so much! I think last week’s post was about Truth. It was recent if not last week. I have seen several stories that made me think about that this week. I hope you have a good weekend.

  27. Kysha says:

    Great list of thankfuls! I am so glad that He is my provider. Always faithful!

  31. Love your theme on providence. Indeed, He provides all we need and so much more, how blessed we are. I’m thankful for the chance to thank Him publically, and witness other thankful hearts that give Him all the glory. His peace and joy to each of you this week.

  32. Marsha says:

    Who could ever understand the ways of bloggy world? I’m just thankful it has led me to you! (Even if it does eat up our words sometimes!)

  33. Amanda says:

    Happy Thursday!

  34. It is exciting when we see God working in our lives! He has been teaching me this week some wonderful insights on education that will be such a blessing to our homeschooling! We serve a very good God! Thanks for your post!

  35. Very nice list. I am thanking God for the little things this week!


  36. sasha says:

    I am touched that I was able to finally join this wonderful meme and my first one is a bit similar to yours.

    I hope I be able to meet new friends who are also thankful for the Lord’s blessings that come their way…

    God bless everyone!

  37. So many beautiful thanks! God is so good and yes, he is the most awesome provider!

  38. I love Thursday because everywhere I go, I find such nice lists like this, Iris.

    I’ve had a few jobs where the only thing that got me through was prayer. Ugh.

  39. Linda says:

    Wonderful list Iris. It is amazing what we see when we look through the lens of a grateful heart. I always enjoy your lists. They remind me of what I too have to be thankful for.

  40. Angie says:

    Thank You Iris, for continuing the Thankful Thursdays. It is a day of reflection for me and really helps me to look at all the things positive in my life. I enjoyed your list and love that you always include that you are thankful for your husband. A wifes heart always shows here at you place. Be blessed,
