I want to share these wonderful thoughts from missionary, Karl Sapp in North Pole, Alaska:
If you want to count your blessings, start with God’s promises!
God’s Presence: “I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.” Heb.13:5
God’s protection: “I am thy shield and thy exceeding great reward.”. Gen. 15:1
God’s power: “I will strengthen thee.” Is.41:10
God’s provision: “I will help thee” Is 41:10
God’s leading: “And when He putteth forth His own sheep, He goeth before them, and His sheep follow Him: for they know His voice.” John 10:4
God”s purpose: “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you and expected end.” Jer.29:11
God’s rest: Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.: Matt.11:18
Gods’ cleansing: If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” I John 1:9
God’s goodness: “For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.” Psalm 84:11
God’s faithfulness: For the Lord will not forsake His people for is great name’s sake.” I Samuel 12:22
This is only 10 – there are thousands more!
Have a wonderful, Praise-filled Thanksgiving!
