Happy Thanksgiving!!

Posted: November 27, 2008 in General Discussion

I guess I’ll jump on the Thanksgiving bandwagon and share the things I’m thankful for today.

1) I am thankful that God saw fit to save a wretch like me.

2)I am thankful for my wife. I’m thankful that God has giving her enough patience and mercy to be able to stay married to me all these years.

3)I am thankful for my children. I have been blessed with 2 great kids and I love them more than anything.

4)I am thankful for my family (this includes in-laws), they have always been there, even when I gave them reasons not to be.

5)I am thankful for my friends. I am thankful that they are real, and keep me in check.

6)I am thankful that God has led us to a new church home, where the word of God is preached and taught faithfully.

7)I am thankful for my health. I’m 37yrs old and by the grace of God , pretty healthy.

8)I am thankful for my job. As much as I hate it, I’m glad I have it.

From Valley of Vision

O Spirit of God,

H elp my infirmities;

         When I am pressed down with a load

of sorrow,

perplexed and knowing not what to do,

slandered and persecuted,

made to feel the weight of the cross,

help me, I pray thee.

If thou seest in me

any wrong thing encouraged,

any evil desire cherished,

any delight that is not thy delight,

any habit that grieves thee,

any nest of sin in my heart,

then grant me the kiss of thy forgiveness,

and teach my feet to walk the way of

thy commandments.

Deliver me from carking care,

and make me a happy, holy person;

Help me to walk the separated life with

firm and brave step,

and to wrestle successfully against weakness;

Teach me to laud, adore, and magnify thee,

with the music of heaven,

And make me a perfume of praiseful gratitude

to thee.

I do not crouch at thy feet as a slave before a tyrant,

but exult before thee as a son with a father.

Give me power to live as thy child in all my actions,

and to exercise sonship by conquering self.

Preserve me from the intoxication that comes

of prosperity;

Sober me when I am glad with a joy that comes

not from thee.

Lead me safely on to the eternal kingdom,

not asking whether the road be rough or smooth.

I request only to see the face of him I love,

to be content with bread to eat,

with raiment to put on,

if I can be brought to thy house in peace.
