THANKFUL THURSDAY

"Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift." 2Cor. 9:15

I have many things to be thankful for this week, but there's one moment that just stands out more than any other.

Last night (Wednesday), my sister in law gave her life to the Lord!!!!! She is not only my sis in-law, but now also my sister in Christ! There are angels rejoicing in heaven, as well as us here on earth!

So, I want to encourage you to keep praying for your family and friends who don't know the Lord. Anything and everything is possible with Jesus! Keep on praying for them, and remember, it's all in His time!

Hooray! The heavens rejoice today! Oh how many times we want to give up when it seems as if nobody listens to the gospel, but this is proof that though it might take a while, it's worth it.

That is wonderful! I'm so glad you added those encouraging words too. I pray for my husband so much and sometimes it seems like it's going further the other way than the way I wish it would go. So I think I really needed to hear that.
