Happy Thanksgiving

I am thankful that I serve a risen Saviour.
I am thankful that I am living, breathing and moving, on my own accord.
I am thankful for having a sound mind, and the ability to make sound decisions.
I am thankful for my health and strength.
I am thankful for the activity of my limbs; for eyes to see, ears to hear, legs to walk and a mouth to talk.
I am thankful that I am loved, I am blessed, I am protected, and I am redeemed.
I am thankful for unfailing love.
I am thankful for my family: my husband, children, grands and siblings.
I am thankful for my friends.
I am thankful for freedom.
I am thankful for the peace that surpasses all understanding.
I am thankful for joy unspeakable, and full of glory.
I am thankful that I can provide for myself.
I am thankful for food on my table, shelter and clothes on my back.
I am thankful for every kind act that has ever been extended to me.
I am thankful for you, too.



Comfort Zone

I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I couldn’t fail; the same four walls and busy work were really more like jail.
I longed so much to do the things I’d never done before, but I stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.
I said it didn’t matter that I wasn’t doing much, I said I didn’t care for things like diamonds, furs and such.
I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the zone, but deep inside me, I longed for something special of my own.
I couldn’t let my life go by just watching others win. So I held my breath, I stepped outside, and let the change begin.
I took a step and with it found strength I’d never felt before.
I kissed my comfort zone good-bye and closed and locked the door.
If you are in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out, remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt.
A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true.
Greet your future with a smile, success is there for you!

Our Daily Bread – Day 317

1 Corinthians 1:26-31 (The Message Bible)
Take a good look, friends, at who you were when you got called into this life. I don’t see many of “the brightest and the best” among you, not many influential, not many from high-society families. Isn’t it obvious that God deliberately chose men and women that the culture overlooks and exploits and abuses, chose these “nobodies” to expose the hollow pretensions of the “somebodies”? That makes it quite clear that none of you can get by with blowing your own horn before God. Everything that we have—right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start—comes from God by way of Jesus Christ. That’s why we have the saying, “If you’re going to blow a horn, blow a trumpet for God.”
