Dear Lord,
King of kings, Counselor, Comforter, Keeper, Shepherd, Great High Priest, Jehovah-Jireh, Lord of lords, Almighty God, Prince of peace, the Author & Perfecter, Beginning & End, Alpha & Omega, Lamb of God, Yeshua Ha Mashiech,

Thank you...

For all that you are, and all that you do. 

I love you!

Last week I went through a somewhat scary situation that caused my adrenaline to rush like never before, and had me literally crying out to Jesus for help.  Never before had I needed to call on His name like that--but never before had I experienced the sweetness of His swift answer either.  As I prayed, I verbally pleaded, "JESUS!  In the name of JESUS!"  And immediately He was there.  The next words I spoke flowed so naturally from my mouth... "Thank you."  I had never said those two words before and meant them as sincerely as I did in that moment. 

Looking back now, I wouldn't trade the experience for the world--no matter how scary--because it taught me the meaning of true thankfulness.  I now understand (on some scale!) the overwhelming feeling of desperation and the even more overwhelming comfort of God's supernatural intervention.  And I'm so thankful to Him for that!  Praise the Lord!

I hope you all have been enjoying a very blessed and happy Thanksgiving!  Remember to thank God in EVERYTHING, and for EVERYTHING...  He is certainly worthy. :) 


"Give thanks in all circumstances
for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."

1 Thessalonians 5:18
