Thankful Thurday

I hope that you are all having a wonderful Thursday! Mine is getting better!!!

I have not been in the right mind set lately. I don't know why, but I have been very irritable, cranky, and tired. It gets old, fast! And I am sure that if I am noticing my attitude and am tired of it, the people around me have also noticed and are probably REALLY tired of it.

This morning, I woke up and did not want to get out of bed. Then I remembered somthing that my husband had told me that they talked about at one men's breakfast at church...in the mornings it is much better to get out of bed with a good attitude and say "Good Morning God!" as oppossed to "Uuugh, good God it's morning."

AH-HA MOMENT

Suddenly it did not seem so strange to me that I have been in such a foul mood. My priorites have not been what they should.

So today I am thankful for the gentle nudges that the Lord gives, when I need them most. I am thankful that, especially when I am not who He wants me to be, He loves me enough to guide me back to the right path.



If you would like to link up with Thankful Thursday, it is being hosted by Lynn this month at Spiritually Unequal Marriage. If you would like to just stop by and see her post and a list of others, you are welcome to do that too!

Lord,
I thank you, not only today Lord but every day, for being such a loving Father. There is nothing that can ever seperate us from Your love, and that is something that I will be eternally greatful for. Lord I ask that you would be with me, mold me Lord so that I am more like you and less like me. I thank you for the forgiveness that you give so freely Lord. Thank you for all that you are. Please watch over all of my sisters and brothers and be with each of them in whatever way they are needing you right now Lord.
In the precious name of Jesus I pray,
Amen

Good Friday

Today is representative of the day that Jesus Christ was crucified. It begins the three day count until the time when Jesus rose from the dead, and ascended to the right hand of God. I hope that all of you have a great Easter, as there is so much to celebrate...

JESUS LIVES!!!
   
57 And those who had laid hold of Jesus led Him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled. 58 But Peter followed Him at a distance to the high priest’s courtyard. And he went in and sat with the servants to see the end.
59 Now the chief priests, the elders, and all the council sought false testimony against Jesus to put Him to death, 60 but found none. Even though many false witnesses came forward, they found none. But at last two false witnesses came forward 61 and said, “This fellow said, ‘I am able to destroy the temple of God and to build it in three days.’”
62 And the high priest arose and said to Him, “Do You answer nothing? What is it these men testify against You?” 63 But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest answered and said to Him, “I put You under oath by the living God: Tell us if You are the Christ, the Son of God!”
64 Jesus said to him, “It is as you said. Nevertheless, I say to you, hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven.”
65 Then the high priest tore his clothes, saying, “He has spoken blasphemy! What further need do we have of witnesses? Look, now you have heard His blasphemy! 66 What do you think?”
They answered and said, “He is deserving of death.”
(Matthew 26:57-66, New King James Version)


I wish you all a glorious Easter with your families and pray that we would all keep in mind the sacrifice that was made on our behalf...not just on this Easter weekend but all year.
