Thankful Thursday - February 25
Thankful Thursday is meeting at Grace Alone this week. Iris talks about change. I don't like change. I like things to be the same way all of the time, especially my prayer life. I noticed a while back that some of the things I say in my prayers are exactly the same as they've been since I was a small child. That's a pretty long time!
I am still praying for certain people - have been since forever. I have no idea if these people are saved now. I don't know if they're even alive today. I just keep praying. I think I'll continue to pray until I know something different. I am so thankful that God hears my prayers. Over the course of my Christian life, I've felt God listen. I can't describe it. I just KNOW in my spirit that I'm connecting with God. That is so huge.
My son bought his first car this week. He paid cash. I'm praising God tonight that he got a car, albeit a pretty old one, without borrowing a dime! If you know me, you know that I hate overspending and debt. I don't want my kids in debt. The Lord led us to this car.
We have a "new" van now. It is very nice, and fairly new. I'm thanking God for provision. I'm thanking Him for those who helped us get the van. I'm REALLY praising God that the brakes are good. If you know us you know that our old van lost brakes 4 times over the course of 5 years. Each time the brakes went out, we were kept safe in God's care. I still test the brake pedal before taking off even though I know this van does not have this issue.
Spring is coming. I'm thankful for that too. I bought a few packets of seeds tonight in celebration. In April I might be able to till the garden, providing the snow finally leaves.
I hope you're having a wonderful week.
