Tim 1:12 "I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful, appointing me to his service."
On this Thankful Thursday I would like to give thanks for all of the people God has placed in my life who are serving in full-time ministry, and others who's lives are given in selfless sacrifice to the body of Christ in some way.
~I'm grateful today for my pastor, his wife and the entire staff at our awesome church! I'm so blessed, and so privileged to be a part of such a beautiful local body.
~I'm grateful for a new friend I have made since I began this blog. She has been so patient with me, so helpful, and is also the one who designed my new and very beautiful blog. Amy, you are so talented and you are such a giving servant to the body of Christ. A note to those of you reading this...If you ever need a blog makeover, I would give you my recommendation to go and check out Amy's wonderful work at Spilt Decisionz.
~I'm grateful for Mark and Mylissa Horrock, who head up a wonderful ministry called "Habitat for Hope" in Memphis. This ministry was born out of a desire to bring hope and help to families who have children that are dealing with childhood cancer and other life threatening diseases at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. I am privileged to be able to work with them as their Prayer Partner Coordinator.
~I'm grateful for all of our friends who faithfully pray and encourage my son Jordan in his ongoing battle with a brain tumor. What a labor of great love this has been over the past five years. We could not have made it this far without you, and "thank you" just doesn't seem to be enough to express my deepest gratitude.
~I'm personally thankful for Lord allowing me the opportunity to serve His body in so many different ways each day. There always seems to be that "special someone" He brings across my path that needs a kind word or some other type of help just to express His love to them in their time of need. It's the grace, mercy and kindness that He has shown toward me, which equips me for service to others.
~I am also grateful for all of you who have taken time out of your busy day to sit and read this post today! May God bless you, watch over you, and fill you with His overflowing joy today.
~And finally I'm thankful for Laurel who is hosting this Thankful Thursday during the busiest time of the year! Blessings to you Laurel for your service to all of us! You can now go see what others are thanking God for at Laurel's Wreath today!
