30 days of Thanksgiving ...day 2
WOW the very number one thing I am thankful for is my relationship with the Lord.
I have put Him through more then my parents, and He still loves me and wants me.
I gave my heart to Jesus at age 11. At a meeting in our yard lead by sister from the Lutheran church, now.. the sister part confuses me and mom only vaguely remembers this, but I remember of hearing of the Love of God and Jesus who came and loved us so he DIED for ME!. I gave my heart to Him forever on that summer day.
I was blessed to have both my parents also become saved at that time, so from there on I was raised in a home growing in the Lord. Loving Jesus the best we could and serving Him.
Of course I grew up and lets just say that many things in my life I decide to do what I wanted more then what the Lord wanted during my late teens. But God has always been faithful to forgive , and direct me back to Him.
I have loved my life with the Lord, I know at times the relationship has been more one sided, HIM putting out more then me and as I have aged and really dedicated myself to serving Him and following Him daily and running after more of Jesus , things have been so beautiful and precious.
I love when He shows me things and allows me ways to act out service for Him, whether that be serving in church, or talking to a friend, or even a stranger in a store about His love. I want Him to be seen in all my life and how I live.
I love when He show me things in His word.I love when He shows me simple things like Joy being Jesus , others and You. We are important to the God who created heaven and earth and he cares about us, and everything we go through, he wants a relationship with US.
Oh Yes I am so very thankful for my relationship with my heavenly Father. I can't tell you just how much He is my all in all.I Pray you know Him too!
