It's Thankful Thursday and I realized I've not participated in the last few weeks. Iris of Grace Alone is hosting and I wanted to join up with her. Btw, did you know that Iris celebrated her birthday this past Tuesday? Don't forget to wish her a happy birthday if you stop by.
Happy Birthday Iris! I'm so thankful for you. Did I mention that Iris lives in Arizona and I've met her in person? :)
I'm so thankful for God's love. He knows exactly what I need and when I need it.
I'm participating in an online Bible study called "A Heart Makeover". Tracy Berta has written it and is teaching through videos over At the Well. This study has been so timely for me. The Lord has been doing a major work in my heart as I honestly answer the questions each week. This past week concerned a healed heart and it was very revealing for me.
I'm not an openly emotional person. I love people and I'm a hugger. But I've had layers of self-protection over my heart for years. As I've been spending time with the Lord each morning, He has been dealing with major heart issues in my life. I've found that tears come so much more quickly lately.
Tracy wrote such a sweet note to me and mentioned a song by Natalie Grant called "Held". I found it on YouTube and was so touched by it. I sent a link to a friend who lost her young son. I think the words to this song deal with major life issues such as divorce, death of loved ones, financial crisis and more.
I'm so thankful for our blogging community. I believe the Lord is doing something good as we get to encourage one another. I pray you will enjoy this song:
Don't forget to be on the lookout for all you can be thankful for today.
Blessings and love,
