Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

Today, I am thankful for the many ways God communicates to me.

1. God often speaks to me through my daughter. Today, her little bike ran into a ditch. No big deal. She picked it up knowing that I would help if she needed it. Child-like faith! That is what God desires from us.

2. God speaks to me through "divine encounters". Yesterday I ran into the brother of a college/high school friend. As a result I have reconnected with my friend from the past. Incidentally, I have often thought of ways to get back in touch with her through the years. Right time, right place, right encounter.

3. God speaks to me through my friends. I am thankful for how loving and kind my friends are. Their kindness and grace reminds me often of God's great forgiveness. (And, a hearty you are welcome to all of the ladies that I gave awards to!)

4. God speaks to me through song. Yesterday I was VERY overwhelmed with a lot of small stuff I had to do. I started singing songs to the Lord and immediately felt His realness and closeness.

5. God speaks to me through nature. Again, when I look at this beautiful day outside I am reminded of a God who is beautiful, perfect, and passionate about us. And, I am overwhelmed that He sees and knows me--- one person at one place at one specific time. Oh, we have so much to be thankful for!!!


  1. I see we are looking at nature through similar lenses. God is overwhelming isn't He! And what joy to know that the "right time, right place, right encounter" always occurs when we are right in step with our Creator!

    Blessings to you!

  2. It is truly wonderful to see God in unexpected places isn't it. I just can not imagine, nor remember, How people can just say, "What a coincidence!" God knows-and God's children see the "invisible".

  5. Laurie!

    Love this list! Too great to pass up so I think I will print it to remind me not to pass up the little things in life.
