"What are you thankful for today? Stop by Sonya's blog, Truth 4 The Journey, to find out how to share your gratitude and see what others are thanking God for today."

Today I am thankful!
1. I am thankful for my Heavenly Father!
1 John 3:1 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.

2. I am thankful that He loved me first!
1 John 4:10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

3. I am thankful that He provides for me.
1 Timothy 6:17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

4. I am thankful that He protects me.
Psalm 37: 27-29 Turn from evil and do good; then you will dwell in the land forever.
For the LORD loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones. They will be protected forever, but the offspring of the wicked will be cut off; the righteous will inherit the land and dwell in it forever.

5. I am thankful that He is preparing a place for me, eternally!
John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

I pray that God will reveal to us who He is and all that He graciously does for us, daily!
