Thankful Thursday ~ Happy Thanksgiving

I sincerely wish all of you a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving. Join us at Grace Alone during November. During December we will be sharing our thankful thoughts at Women Taking A Stand.

I will praise God's name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving. Psalm 69:30

During 2009, my blessings have been greater than I could have ever imagined. I shifted my thoughts from expectation to glorification. I made a conscious effort to turn my will and my life to God. The blessings started to become clear. I have been able to see the path clearly. I am in constant communication with God. I have been teaching my kids to see the signs of God. I tell them that when they talk to God and ask him for things, sometime the answer is Yes, No, or Wait. I have tried to be a faithful servant and the rewards are incredible.

Walk in faith my dear friends. Let the Lord steer your path. This Thanksgiving I am thankful for your friendship, your words of wisdom, and most of all the love of God that we share. Lets lift up in prayer all of those people who feel lonely, hungry, and lost. May the love of Christ nurish their bodies, fill their spirit, and heal hearts.

To my Father God: Thank you for my closer relationship with you. I sincerely appreciate the wonderful children you have given me; who are in good health, respectful Christians, and excellent students. I am so appreciative of the job I am blessed with and the sweet people I work with. My heart is filled with gratitude for my mother, who is still my inspiration and mentor. My sisters are my best friends and my brother is my role-mode. Thank you God for giving us your son Jesus Christ, who loves us and guides us closer to you.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Yoli :)

    Peace, new friend.

  2. that's a beautiful post.

    happy thanksgiving to you, yoli. God bless!

  3. Yoli, how wonderful to read that you are walking closely with your Lord. As you learn to surrender ALL to him, He will make you path straight. Allow Him to work in you so that He can work through you to impact others. It's taken me many years to learn that lesson after wrestling for control. Resting in Him is the secret of contentment and thankfulness flows out too.

    Glad to meet you as I believe this is my first visit to your blog.
