Thankful Thursday - Security
As I look back over this week, I am thankful for God’s protection over me and all of my family. The theme this Thankful Thursday is "security." When I am afraid, I want to hide. God says in Psalm 27:5 that He hides me in His pavilion in the time of trouble. It says that “in the secret place of His tabernacle, He shall hide me. He shall set me high upon a rock.”
I’m thankful for the recent increase in customers. We are paid on sales commissions so we’re grateful for several appointments this week. I’ve learned over the years that my security has to be in the Lord and not a paycheck.
I’m thankful for my church and the new ministry team. They are making things happen in powerful ways! The first Women’s Meeting of the year last Friday was so much fun and I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to visit with two friends I haven’t seen in a long time. Women’s friendships warm my soul.
I’m so very thankful for my family. Every family has ups and downs and we are far from perfect. I’m so grateful that we never give up on each other. My husband’s love for me strengthens me and encourages me. My girls and their husbands are so much fun. Their love is powerful. There aren’t words to explain the joy Susanna gives me.
I’m thankful to be living in the U.S. I don’t always understand our laws, and I’m thankful for the conservative talk shows that explain bills and amendments, etc. I’m thankful for Rush, Hannity, Glen Beck, Laura Ingram and Janet Parshall; when I listen to them, I feel safe because they fear God. Yesterday Janet helped me write a letter to my congresswoman about the economic stimulus package in a way that is intelligent.
How about those Arizona Cardinals? I’m thankful they have made it to the Super Bowl!
Being thankful is so powerful. Don’t miss the wonderful writers you will find at Lori’s Reflections. Choose thanksgiving. God is our security; let’s kiss those January blues away.
