Thankful Thursday

"If the Lord had not been on our side when men attacked us, then they would have swallowed us alive." Psalm 124:2-3, HCSB

I am thankful for the Lords faithfulness to me. Oh, How undeserving I am of it. Being a christian almost since I was a pre-teen. Have grown up in the church. Every time the doors were open I was their. Almost like a church rat. Yet, I ran away from God in search of something I didn't know. Looking back over the years I can see how God saved me from myself. From the wrong choices I have made, the people who I thought were the best thing for me, my attitude towards life and my attitude towards myself.

Thank you Lord for:

Staying with me even when I wasn't with you.

Placing Godly people in my life to help disciple me.

The blessing of my family.

Helping me to become an encourager to other who are where I have been.

Daily growing in HIM,


**This is my first time to join Thankful Thursday, thank you for letting me share my heart.**

Hey Trina. Glad to see you over here today! Now we can not only meander together, we can be thankful together, too. I think you'll love this meme. It has become one of my favorites.

I can relate to your list. Even though I didn't grow up in church, I can look back and see God's hand on me that led me there. There were so moments where I was pretty rebellious but He was so faithful to lead me where I am today.

Have a great day friend!!

Welcome to Thankful Thursday. Loved your thankful post. I to am thankful for the Lord's faithfulness to me. "If the Lord had not been on our side when men attacked us, then they would have swallowed us alive"! Isn't that so true! In my everyday life if the Lord had not been with me I would have been "swallowed alive". Thanks for sharing with us today. God Bless!

Amen. How wonderful that God has brought you back to Him and given you the sensitivity to others who are far from Him. May He fill you with love and encouragement for all His little lambs.

Amen to that, Trina - I have been there myself. But when I was deep, deep in the pit - there was only One who extended His hand toward me.

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

Be blessed today and always.
