Thankful Thursday


Today I am thankful for my faith. I am thankful that I believe in God and Jesus Christ and that I try to live a life of goodness, peace and thankfulness. Someone very close to me said something that was very disturbing. I could not imagine not knowing my ultimate destiny. That brings with it a certain peace, knowing that things can happen, but one way or another, I will have the strength to endure because of my faith. And for that, I am truly thankful.

Thank you to Rhondi for hosting Thankful Thursday. Be sure to visit other contributors here. It always makes me feel good to read what others are thankful for also.

Hi Joyce
Putting your trust in Jesus is such an easy thing. I wonder why people find it so hard? Especially during these uncertain times it is such a comfort to know that we can trust him to look after our needs.
Hugs, Rhondi

Hello Joyce, thank you for sharing your personal faith with us today. I do not know how one can get through the challenges of everyday life without faith. Faith is what sustains us.

I, too, am so blessed in my life because of Jesus Christ, honey! I don't know what I'd do without Him. Then there's these "glorious" bloggers who I canNOT keep up with. Sorry, last few days have been a blur.
Smooches for Rachel please,
Connie

Joyce, this is my first time visiting your blog. Came over for Thankful Thursday. And you can get an "Amen" from this corner because I don't know what in the world I'd do without Jesus! And I am so grateful for His sacrifice.

I'm a newbie and posted on my blog, but didn't know how to hook up with the rest of you. But I went ahead and posted because I thought it was such a great idea!

Hope you'll come visit.

XO,

Sheila

This is my first time to your blog, too. I came from Thankful Thursdays. I love that sentiment ... to LOOK for the hand of the One who loves us most! Then to give Him glory ... it is a beautiful thing to do.
