Thankful Thursday--God answers



Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed; he answers him from his holy heaven with the saving power of his right hand. Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. Psalm 20:6-7

This week I'm thankful that:
--The Lord is trustworthy! He saves us and provides for us and is stronger than an army...even today's armored tanks and rocket missiles.
--The Lord still speaks today. This weekend our church is having a special "workshop" on learning to listen like Jesus. While I was running, I was confessing that I don't want to go, because life is easier if you don't listen and just carry on your merry way. So of course God revealed an entire Sunday School curriculum I'm supposed to write...luckily we won't get to it for a year, but I better get hopping on it!
--That God uses my exercise time as prayer time.
--How God works everything together for his good purposes. Last fall Patrick sensed he should be doing something different with his job, and God has worked it out...not in the timing *I* thought things should happen, but in His good timing.
--God chooses children to speak to and through--both my own kids, and in the Bible.
--I'm able to work with a great group of people--both coworkers and students.

Wow - an entire Sunday School curriculum - what a task. But then again with God all things are possible.
Yeah - sometimes His timing is not like ours. I just wish I would listen to Him and not run in front of Him...

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us again this week.

Blessings to you and your precious family.

A great post - I quite often used to pray whilst I was still able to run, now I just pray whilst doing mundane tasks (like the ironing!!).
God bless and Thanks for sharing.
