From My Pen...

I'm a journaler. I like to journal about life, love and my Lord. I also love technology but busyness keeps me from being as tech-savvy as I'd like to be. This blog gives me a chance to play computer and learn a few new tricks along the way; all the while serving as my 21st century journal. A journaler is just a writer by another name and writing defines me almost as much as my faith does. I've always had a desire to blend my faith and my writing into a ministry of encouragement. This blog gives birth to that desire. Be blessed as you read these weekly devotions taken from the pages of my old-fashioned journal.

Thank you, Gracious Lord...
Thank you for the sweet sense of your presence in the early moments of this day.
Thank you for this beautiful day to live and love you.
Thank you for the peace of God that passes all human understanding.
Thank you for the joy of the Lord that is my strength.
Thank you for the glorious hope that does not make ashamed.
Thank you that my sins are gone and I am a new creature in Christ Jesus.
Thank you for your Word that is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction a
nd for instruction in righteousness.
Thank you that there has not failed one word of all your good promises.
Thank you that when I walk through the valley of shadows you are there to comfort me.
Thank you that you are my strong rock, my firm foundation, my strong tower,
and my hiding place.
Thank you that you have not given me a spirit of fear but of power love and a sound mind.
Thank you for the Throne of Grace where I find the help I need in troubled times.
Thank you that you are my burden-bearer upon whom I can cast my anxieties and cares.
Thank you for lashing love upon me and for adopting me into your family. I cry Abba.
Thank you that I am never alone. You have never forsaken me nor have you left me begging for bread - neither physical nor spiritual.
Thank you, Living Water, for quenching the thirst of this parched woman.
Thank you for all that you are.
Thank you that you are all that I need.
Thank you, thank you, a thousand times, thank you.
