Thankful Thursday

Today is the day when I take a moment to be thankful. There are other bloggers joining me today. Just click on the Thankful Thursday button on my sidebar on the right where I have listed them. It is such a blessing reading what others are thankful for, so I hope you have time to visit them. If you want to join us and post what you're thankful for each Thursday, just let me know and I'll add you to the list. Today I am thankful for the word of God. Years ago when I had little or no faith I thought that the bible was boring, restricting, out dated, and definitely not relevant for me in this modern age we are in. But once I put my faith and trust in God, I began to see what an amazing book it is and how it is able to speak to everyone, down through the generations.

When I am needing guidance: "I am the Lord your God who teaches you what is best for you and directs you in the way you should go." Isaiah 48:17

When I am tired: "Come to me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. " Matthew 11:28

When I am worried: "Do not worry about anything but instead with prayer and thanksgiving , make your requests known to God and the peace that transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and mind." Philipians 4: 6&7

Sometimes when I am I am especially concerned about our finances , I will just "happen" to read Matthew 6: 25-34 "do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink or what you will wear...your heavenly Father knows that you need them." God is even concerned about what I will wear!

I could go on and on.

So, today I am thankful for God's word. What are you thankful for today?

  4. Your post is lovely today, Rhondi...uplifting words of grace such as these are a big thing to be thankful for! And many thanks for you bringing Thankful Thursday to us! :o) Happy Day, my friend ((HUGS))

  5. Hi Rhondi -
    Yes, the Word of God is what I am thankful for today. It is a 'light to my path' today and everyday.

  6. What a beautiful post, Rhondi! I enjoyed reading every word and thank you for giving us the opportunity today to be reminded of the lessons for us in the Bible.

  7. Rhondi...what a wonderful post. I so needed it this morning with everything that has happened lately. I mind need to revisit my faith...hmmm.


  8. Hi Rhondi, I'm thankful today for wonderful memories of our days as next door neighbors as we followed hard after HIM. So thankful that He has never left us or forsaken us and that this is "Jammin With Jensen" Thursday again where we can take Him as healer, God of signs and wonders & miracles to pray for those he sends to our table for His touch!
    Blessings & a Hug, Dottie

  9. What a great post. I'm thankful for so much. Usually I feel like I'm playing wack-a-mole with problems in life but really there are so many more things to be happy with and grateful for. I'm so grateful for my family and the jobs my husband and I have to take care of them with. Thanks Rhondi.

    This Thankful Thursday is changing my outlook one week at a time.

  24. Hi,
    I am new to blogging and I tried to write you once before, but don't know if you got it.
    I love your finds, your rabbits and everything. I want to move in with you

  25. Such a lovely post, so positive and thoughtful. Thanks for sharing! Roxanne

  26. I am Thankful God works through us all to help feed his flock. Thanks for the manna. ((hugs)) Rosie

  27. I am thankful for being alive and in good health, having just lost a dear friend to cancer a couple of weeks ago. Love your new header by the way.

  28. I agree! Scripture is so amazing. It seems to be alive, the way it reaches into my brain/soul and pulls out thoughts in conversation with God.
    That sounds weird to write it in words, but I do believe it!

  29. I am thankful for your post. God's Word can be so simple, so clear, and so reassuring. Truly bread. Thanks, Rhondi!

    Warm hugs,


Thanks so very much for taking the time to leave a comment. I always read every one. I am glad you stopped by for a visit. Hope you'll come again!
