Thank You Lord

Thank you Lord that when I am weary you promise to give me rest.

Matthew 11:28, 29 “Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

Thank you Lord for giving my family food and shelter because so many in this world go without.

Isaiah 49:10 “They will neither hunger nor thirst, nor will the desert heat or the sun beat upon them. He who has compassion on them will guide them and lead them beside springs of water.:”

Thank you Lord for what health I do have because I know that there are so many more that suffer so much more on a daily basis.

Psalm 73:26 “My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever.”

Thank you Lord for my loving daughter who takes care of me even though she also suffers from autoimmune diseases. Heather is worth more than a thousand children!

Psalm 127:3, 4 “Children are a blessing and a gift from the LORD. Having a lot of children to take care of you in your old age is like a warrior with a lot of arrows.”

Thank you Lord for the blogging friends who are reading this now, for it means they care and pray for me.

Proverbs 12:26 “The godly give good advice to their friends;”
