Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good . . .

Sometimes I feel as if my heart will burst as I consider the many ways the Lord blesses me. As we prepare our hearts and homes to celebrate Thanksgiving Day in the United States on Thursday, November 24th, I encourage you to share your thanksgivings here. Bless others as they join you in praise to our Father for the great works He has done in our lives.

    I too am wondering what God’s plan is for me. I am a 63 yr young woman currently living in Wisconsin wondering what my next step is. I have been living with my daughter and her family for the past 2+yrs providing support for her and vise versa. Lord is moving them in a new (Texas) direction I don’t want to go. But I am on disability not disabled, but need to be around at least one family member. I’m asking God for direction, guidance, a sign, something to let me know if I’m supposed to follow or stay. All comments appreciated. I am preparing for a Daniel fast and would just like some input. Thank you in advance.

    It is April 2015 I am preparing to begin the Daniel Fast (my first) next week. I lost my job 3 months ago and am unable to find a new one as yet. I have been commuting 2 hrs a day. I am 62 and wondering if God is taking me in a new direction. I live alone in a mobile home just 3 doors down from my 95 year old step mom and my husband lives in our other home 40 miles away he visits on weekends. I am here only because I felt God wanted me to care for mom she is all I have for a parent and my husband and I both love her. We are in agreement to care for her. He runs our business and things can get pretty harry… Financially God is making a way and now I am thinking he has allowed me this time to just grow closer to Him. I am making a list of all the unanswered prayers a list of all the family members that are not walking with the Lord, Spiritual breakthroughs I would like to see, ministry direction, and Gods will for the rest of my life. I have wishes and dreams but I want to be aligned with His plan not my own and sometimes it is hard to hear what that is. I am totally waiting on Him for direction.
    Thank you for sharing this plan, I am looking for a sharper focus and would appreciate your
    prayers. I know this Blog is old and may be closed but God can make a way…

    • God is so good, Terry. His promises are sure. Continue to rely on Him. Fasting is a powerful spiritual tool to draw closer to Him and focus on prayer and study.

      Be blessed on your journey.

    How can I justify how blessed my wife and myself are. Is it because we are not hiding behind the bible n bluffing. We are out there giving to the needy n elderly n stroke victims. Everytime we do this it just snds like a calling from the holy spirit. We are not rich but we are comfortable and yet we can’t wait to give to the less forntunate. I was in a rehab centre I’m March of 1986 and look here blessed I’ve been. WHY. Praise be to GOD AS HE IS THE GREATEST

      Hi Ian,
      No need for you to even try to justify the blessing of the Lord in your life. You are the seed of Abraham and the covenant blessing of the Lord belongs to all who are in Christ Deut. 28:1-14 (and being redeemed from the curse Gal 3:13). You are Blessed…. to Be a Blessing to those in need! We have to have it, in order to give it away! Continue on and finish strong in your assignment as His conduit of power and life in this world!

    Just remember to stay focus while fasting, because without a doubt, the enemy rears his nasty head!

    Today is the first day of a 21 day Daniel Fast that I go on at the start of each year with my church. I am looking forward to what God wants to do in and through me during this time.

    It is so wonderful to see true believers praying for each other, loving our awesome God and fasting for purpose. I pray that each and everyone will be super-blessed and will have an increased relationship with Jesus, our mighty Saviour. In Jesus Name AMEN

    Just to mention that the Bible says God will restore all what the locusts has eaten. I believe He will intervene in your life and the life of your husband. My son’s company closed down in March and God has been good. He restored the job that he had before with more salary. He is faithful.

    I thank God because we’re again celebrating another Thanksgiving next month. I praise God for He is good, His love endures forever. His forgiveness is a super great blessing that can never be bought with money!

    My husband and I are going through a very difficult time presently. The devil entered our family and created all kinds of mess. We are both currently unemployed, we have 2 children and a mortgage. We have used all our resources and all we have left is JESUS. I have learned to cast my burdens on HIM, be still and let HIM be God, and now I understand why he said HIS grace was sufficient. I just can’t explain how we have been able pay/afford bills/needs, but yes HE has been faithful to HIS promise and everything has been just smooth! We are starting the 21 days Daniel fast next Tuesday, October 9th 2012 as Monday is thanksgiving here in Canada. As most of you are already fasting, please join you voice to mine to thank our good Lord for His unfailing love, grace, provision, protection, promise…etc. I know that this fast will give us new directions for our family, new hearts that will be more like Christ’s. Please pray for my family and together let us put the devil to shame and glorify the name above all names JESUS.

      Susy, I give praise and thanks to God for your life. You see, when you are still and allow HIM to be GOD of your life, everything works for good, even the evil that is planned against you. Hei, I’m shouting for joy for your life because I’ve been through difficult times, God used family and friends to help me come to that realization and when I was still and allowed HIm to be God of my life everything has been good since then. Believe the word and act on it. God richly bless you and your family. You’ve made my day! I’m singing praises now. Thank you JESUS

      Hi Suzy,
      Praise God! We are standing in agreement with you that you will hear all that the Holy Spirit is saying to you in this time and this season! All that the enemy has meant for evil, God will turn for good, to cause you and your family to increase, prosper and thrive in the place where He has called you occupy, to subdue and dominate! In Jesus Strong Name, Be Blessed!

  21. I laughed happily at Willie Kings comment- “God is alright”. Yes, He is more than alright: AWESOME. EXCELLENT, WORTHY OF PRAISE. Everyday I thank God for His manifold blessings on my family, loved ones, on Christian brothers and sisters and ofcourse on myself. I’m blessed to be on holidays now and the love I’m experiencing is wonderful. Thank you Jesus

    I am so gratefull that the lord has watched over me and has kept me under is wing. I am 60 yrs young, and I have just realized how God works things out in his own time. You hear it spoken, you read it in the word, but to experience his work in your life is the most amazing thing. I will never go back.

    I am so thankful that God has opened my eyes to know what my purpose is here on this earth. I am 29 years old and have been letting the enemy use and abuse me. I am on day 3 of my fast and haven’t felt this uplifted in sooooo long. He is so awesome!
