Give thanks for blessings from God
« on: February 14, 2014, 06:36:24 PM »
I thought since I felt blessed today by God when I needed help, and without any effort on my part someone came like an Angel out of nowhere, he had no idea I needed help and he asked me to help him in turn for a few dollars which at that point I was in dire need .

I thought we should have a thread where we can thank God for the blessings we are given daily, and all we have to do is have a little faith.

Thank you Lord for answering my prayer even when I had little faith.

The Lord gathers his sheep, I fear I am a goat. Lord have mercy.

Thank you, Lord, for hearing all my prayers (well, I'd like to believe you do, anyway  :-\ ) and answering the ones I need answered, even if I don't always hear or see your answer or like what it is when I do.

I thank God for yesterday restoring my hope and willingness to live.  :)

I thank Him, too, for doing that for you. ;)
