Welcome to Thankful Thursday hosted and created by Iris.
Today she got me to thinking about friendship.
I am thankful for friends.
Iris mentioned praying for a friend at work. Not just any friend someone that she could talk to and share her faith. Iris was greatly blessed not only to find a friend but what she didn't mention was she saw an answered prayer!
I am Blessed when I actually see a true answer to a prayer.
Do you sometimes wonder about prayer. Do you sometimes wonder about God's timing compared to yours?
I have been there and done that! (I wish I could have used a bigger font to express the vastness of that last statement)
God has answered my prayers many times. But there have been many times when I have wondered where he was.
This past year has been one of the hardest years of my life.
But today I sit here with a computer, inter-net and electricity. I am thanful.
There is food in my refrigerator. I am thankful
I am thankful I have a place to live.
I have a car that runs. I am thankful
I am thankful for past friendships. I am thankful that God put certain people in my path at certain times.
I am thankful that God gave me a friend that prayed for me everyday during those difficult times this spring. And emailed me.
I could go on and on but I know you don't need to read more of my list.
I pray that today you have a list of thankfulness. And, I pray that you see God answer a prayer.
