Thankful Thursday



"I tell you not to worry about your life. Don't worry about having something to eat, drink or wear. Isn't life more than food or clothing? Look at the birds in the sky! They don't plant or harvest. They don't even store grain in barns. Yet your Father in heaven takes care of them. Aren't you worth more than the birds?" Matthew 6:25-26

Even though I must remind myself daily of this verse, I am so thankful that when times get hard and it feels like I won't be able to handle what life throws at me, I know that I have a God that has lifted that burden from my shoulders. What a calming thought to know that each day I can wake up and not worry! For if I put my faith in Him, he will provide.

We all need to take care to curb our worries. Such texts are very helpful.

Reading your past TT, I believe your sweet baby hasn't been sick because of your obedience to God and your husband!! As in my post, I go to tlsm (dot) org, and am challenged more and more everyday!! There are many testimonies & in the sermons there has been one woman whose children were sick & ill (one was wheelchair bound and needed surgery) and when the pastor told her she needed to obey her husband, she didn't want to, but did and God healed her children completely!! I want to learn now before my children are sick!!
Thanks for visiting my site!!
Blessings to you!

This is a beautiful post and so true, Tracey. Thank you for your kind comment on mine. Glad I could recommend "The Timepiece" to you. It will make you cry now. I just finished it last night. It seems I read one really good book once a year around this time that makes me cry like a baby. Which reminds me...Got to buy another box of tissues! LOL
