Thankful Thursdays

I am thankful for the joy of praise. For the Lord inhabits my praise.
I am thankful for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit who causes me to be holy before the Father.
I am thankful the Lord is a shield for m, my glory and the lifter up of my head. (Psalm 3:3)
I am thankful for God’s great compassion which never fails.
I am thankful for the ROCK that is higher than I.
I am thankful for Emmanuel (God with me).
I am thankful for the Season of Christmas for it leads Spirits to be loving, generous and kind.

I am thankful for a quiet night long ago where Shepherds dwelled and were filled with awe when Angels burst upon the scene announcing the birth of my Savior; Singing Glory to God in the highest heaven and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.
I am thankful for a stable in the midst of the crowd where my Savior found a place to lay His head. He is my stable, in Him I find rest, I find peace and I find sweet joy.

Hi sis..
(((Hugz)) I think if you were an ornament for Jesus, you would be an ornament of Worship.. You worship him so beautifully from your heart, spirit, and soul, through words that make us just want to stop and give him our worship and thanks as well.

Luv Ya Lorie
