Today i want to focus my thankful heart on being a Christian in America. we had the head of a ministry come to our church a couple weeks ago. he and his team minister to the refugees and displaced people in sudan and uganda. he shared what is happening over there which we never hear about in the western media. the awfulness is overwhelming.
then i think about how I, through no ability of my own, was born here in America, into a Bible believing, God loving family and have known the truth since a child. i am soooooooooooooooo blessed. i have soooooooooooooo much to be thankful for.
i want to burn this on my heart and soul forever and never forget. and allow it to spur me on to reach out to the rest of the world who need to know Jesus.
so what are you thankful for today? if you want to see more of what others are thankful for head over to Iris' blog. and you too can join in the fun. for as the veggie tale song says "...for a thankful heart is a happy heart ..."
