Thankful Thursday! October 15, 2015

 

"Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.        

Because He lives, All fear is gone.

Because I know He holds the future,

And life is worth the living just because He lives."      

Hymn

 

I thank You, my precious Lord for:

The comfort and assurance you get from visiting with girlfriends!!

Lunch with an old friend

Date night and then picking up the boys and their friends and dropping them all off at their homes!! -- it's a journey;)

Morning walk, watching the sunrise!

The whole world still in shade and sunshine just on the tree tops!!  Beautiful!

Sleeping til 7:30 on Sat!!

Dinner with Gr Gil and Pamela, Devon, Park, Monique, Pres and Whitt!!   It was such a fun time!!

Picking up Rendon from the airport

 

PERSPECTIVE!!!

“Do you think anything concerning you right now is too small?

Your house or apartment? Your personal reputation? Your influence? Your job?

Your family (you want to add a spouse or children)? Your circle of friends? Your salary? Your life?

Until I paid attention to Psalm 131, I chafed. Then I discovered that God’s leash wasn’t too tight—my heart was too proud! I thought I “deserved” more; my self-image had greater expectations, and that attitude was the very grease on which I slid into self-pity, discontent, ungratefulness, misery.

Then I fixed my eyes on Jesus—and in my own eyes I became smaller and smaller. What was my stature, my purity, my power, my excellence compared with His?
