Thankful Thursday

I don't have much time for today's post, but I just wanted to take a moment and say how thankful I am for God's Word. I know I've said this before, but I don't always think about it, and I often take it for granted.

I can turn to it whenever I want, I have that freedom. It's always there waiting for me. When I open that Divine book, I always find wisdom, knowledge, peace, comfort, love and long suffering. No matter what I am facing, if I have a need, and I read long enough, God WILL give me an answer...even if the answer is just to wait for His timing or give me assurance that He is always there with me. How thankful I am that He is forgiving, patient, and long-suffering with me. I am so unworthy of all He does and will do for me. Often, I'm not even thankful for it, because my mind is too occupied with worldly things to even think of what all He's done for me. May God continue to forgive me, and bless me through His Word that I am so thankful to have!
Grace Alone is hosting Thankful Thursday this week!


  1. May you be blessed extra sweetly.

  2. I'm so thankful for God's word as well. It's His love letter to us! That the Creator of the universe should want to communicate with us, we who are sinners and fall short of His glory! He really and truly loves us, and His word is proof. We need to read it, study it, memorize it and appreciate it each day. Thanks for the reminder.
