The point of the message is we should NEVER stop being amazed or in awe of God’s working in our life. When we stop recognizing all the wonders He does for us and start to settle or “expect” them, we are allowing satan a foothold. Hmm...They recommended expressing our praises and thanks aloud and to others as a way of keeping our eyes fixed on the amazing blessings from God.
This brought a smile to my face in light of our “Walk With Him Wednesday” blog today and it went along with one of the chapters I read in Elaine W. Miller’s new book, We All Married Idiots: Three Things You’ll Never Change About Your Marriage and Ten Things You Can. I love it when God puts the pieces together, don’t you.
Ann Voskamp’s book, One Thousand Gifts and her website, “A Holy Experience” are such a blessing and I’m honored to join her on the journey to list one-thousand things I’m thankful for this year. Have you started your list? Why not?
Here are a few on my list this week.
“Can I have a hug?”
“I love you Mom”
Fence taken down
Deck blocks delivered
New and old friendships
Joy in heartache
A sense of humor
Spiders falling on my head –
To make me dance –
And shake –
Then laugh –
And itch all day…lol

“I am thankful for this past year of getting to know the Buske family! What a gift God gave me!” posted on my FB from a sister-in-Christ
Strength only found in Him
Many parts…one body
As we give thanks to God ~ hearts are encouraged and look to Him in awe. A great place to stand…in awe of God’s grace and mercy.
