Thankful - He Supplies All My Needs




With the scary financial crisis in the US, I am still grateful and thankful to be a US citizen. I still believe we live in the greatest country in the world.

Even though my husband and I are one of the several million Americans who have lost their home this year, we are not “homeless”; we live in an apartment now. So I am thankful we have comfortable roof over our heads.

I am thankful that my husband is able to work two jobs in two honorable positions; pastor and high school history teacher.

I am thankful the church allows my husband to work another full time since I am unable to work.

I am thankful I have plenty of food to eat, clothes on my back and closet, and the added extra… my computer and Internet!

Most of all, I am thankful I have a Savior who always keeps His promise, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19

Hi Michele!

Well I had to let you know that we are on the same page, lady! I just posted (like 30 minutes ago) about Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord will provide! Well that's just neat.

Michele,

Your thankful heart is precious and touches me deeply. So many people live in yesterday instead of seeing what God has done for them today.

You have shown great strength by choosing to praise!! Blessings to you sweet sister.

Amen to all you said! As frustrated as I am over this aweful bail out, I know that when I go to Kenya I'll be startled back into the reality of how good it is to be an American.
