Thankful Thursday

Today I don’t know why but I am having a really hard time being Thankful.
I feel like I have been under spiritual attack allot the last few days and I know that it will get better and I need to persevere. If you feel led please keep me in your prayers!

So I am going to be Thankful for our holidays next week where we are going to Idaho to visit my Cousin & his wife. These two people are very special to me, they are so positive and it will be a blessing to visit them. I know that holidays will be so refreshing too cause we really need to get away and recharge. The last few weeks have been very emotionally and physically draining on me, I’m not complaining though cause God is doing some amazing stuff in me!
I am also Thankful for the CD release party in September, so far I feel so blessed at the amount of people who are planning to attend that it’s just a little overwhelming. It’s hard to believe that it’s getting so close & before you know it, it will be over and then what will I do? I guess I will just have to write some more songs and put another CD together right? :o))

I am thankful for Facebook because it’s enabled me to connect with some old friends.
It’s a little addicting but I am learning to balance it and for the most part it’s been great to get to know people better and reconnect with friends & relatives.

I am thankful that God is revealing more and more to me through His word!
This verse in particular was dear to me this morning in my morning quiet time!
From 1 Samuel 16
7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

“Lord may my heart be pure and right in your sight tonight! Thank you God that my size does not matter to you, it’s my heart that counts.”
