No matter what the circumstances are, we have to remember that the Bible says "Give thanks in all things" Don Moen is one of my favorite Christian music artists. Here are the words to one of his songs, that I hope will minister to you this week. I sing it as a prayer.
Thank You Lord Song by Don Moen Bible says it's a good thing to give thanks to the Lord, amen I come before You today And there's just one thing that I want to say Thank You Lord Thank You Lord For all You've given to me For all the blessings I can not see Thank You Lord Thank You Lord With a greatful heart With a song of praise With an outstreched arm I will bless Your name Thank You Lord I just wanna thank You Lord Thank You Lord I just wanna thank You Lord Thank You Lord For all You've done in my life You took my darkness and gave me Your light Thank You Lord Thank You Lord You took my sin and my shame You took my sickness and healed all my pain Thank You Lord Thank You Lord With a greatful heart With a song of praise With an outstreched arm I will bless Your name
Hello Brother: i am a semi-retired pastor who studied for the ministry when I was in my early fifties. I struggled with my call for ten years thinking all the church involvement I had was enough. I was finally ordained and have pastored several small churches. I now pastor three small churches which meet together. The Lord keeps me busy-this weekend I have two business meetings, a seniors Bible study, a church 'fun day,' a nursing home service and a Sunday morning worship service. My wife is active with our Sunday School and Missionary Society. We have four grown children and five grandchildren. We live on the east coast of Canada. Thanks for sharing your testimony. Blessings. 510 days ago
I really struggle with feeling good about myself, trying to enjoy the way I look, even if I am not yet where I want to end up weight wise. This week I share this prayer with you.
Lord, sometimes when I look in the mirror Iím not too happy with what I see. Please let me see me the way you made me, beautiful and perfect just as I am. Help me to hold this image in my mind and heart as I follow my lifeís path. Allow others to witness your light shining through me as I walk with confidence, grace and a smile on my face. Amen.
May we all gather strength and confidence and see ourselves as HE sees and loves us.
The road of this weight loss journey is rough. We all have our ups and downs, successes and failures. Just remember when the going gets rough and you want to give up "I can do all things through Christ, which strengthens me." [PHP 4:13]
