I Am Incredibly Thankful for God!

I Am Incredibly Grateful and Thankful for God!

 

I am Thankful that God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.

(John 3:16 NAS Open Bible)

 

He took me, a sinner, and set me free, and I didn't even know I was lost and suffering and in pain.

 

He gave me Joy and Love and Peace and Grace, he gave me everything!

 

He gave me Larry, a Godly man whose heart belongs to Him above all else. Whose strength comes from knowing who he is in Christ Jesus. 

 

He gave me His Word, so that when I needed it the most, I had it to draw strength from. In my darkest hour, when my Daughter Dana died, I knew what the Bible meant when it said "I knew you before you were in your Mother's womb." That means she was part of God, before she was in my womb. The Bible also says to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. 

 

I am thankful for God, first and foremost!

Oh Evelyn,  Tears are rolling down my face.  I did not know about your daughter Dana. I am so sorry. Having strength in God is the only way I could manage through the loss of a child.

Thank you for sharing your faith and love for God. He is a shining light in times of darkness. There is so much darkness in the world.

I know that if it weren't for his strength, we wouldn't have the blessings around us, as well as each other.

Evelyn Johnston - Not everyone has faith, or that inner strength that it takes to get through the loss you have experienced.  Having faith in something more powerful than yourself is something to truly be thankful for!

Evelyn Johnston - to read your blog and get to know you and Larry Johnston here on ActiveRain, I would assume life is good, always good, you suffered no pain. I know now, I was wrong. Together, you suffered one of the greatest tragedies; yet you stayed together through it all and continued to worship our Creator. To live a life without hatred or anger takes courage. May you continue to be blessed.
