What I am Thankful For

Here on the even of Thanksgiving Day, I want to share a short list of the things for which I am thankful.

  • Grace and all it has brought into my life – Salvation, forgiveness, a new life, eternal life, a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ, the indwelling Spirit, the Word of God, and much more than I can list.
  • My family – I thank God for my wife. She is a true helpmeet to me and I love her. I thank God for my children. I am proud of them and the lives they live. My son-in-law and soon to be daughter-in-law. Joan and I have long prayed for the spouses that our children would marry. He has answered us in a very favorable manner. I am proud to call Chad and Amy family. My Mom and Dad are a blessing to me and I am thankful for their lives. I am thankful for my brother Don. I don’t see him as often as I would like, but I love him.
  • The church I attend – Calvary Baptist Church is filled with some of the most genuine, sincere believers I have ever met. They are the real deal and I praise God for putting us together.
  • The ways God uses my life – God has blessed my life far beyond my wildest hopes and dreams. Everyday is a fulfillment of Ephesians 3:20. I stand amazed at what He does and what He allows me to do.

That is just my short list. What are you thankful for today?

Think about, post it and praise Him for it!
