A Month of Thanks: Day 9

Psalm 7:17 "I will give thanks to the LORD because of His righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High."

Last night I spent a wonderful evening in fellowship with some amazing women. Because of that, I was too tired to blog. So, I will blog this morning for yesterday and later tonight with today's thankfulness.

1. Fellowship: I love the body of Christ. I love how you can meet with other believers from different churches and spend time worshiping the Lord together. There is a sweet fellowship that comes from sharing the common bond of love for the Lord and a desire to know Him more intimately. I find this on Wednesday mornings when I attend a Bible study in Orland Park with ladies from different local churches, I found it last night attending a small group at another church, and I find it when I have attend a Bible conference. I am so thankful for fellow believers who can walk along side us, encourage us, challenge us in our faith, and who can pray for us. There is something so very precious and sweet about fellowship.

2. Friends: I've touched on this before, but I am so thankful for the godly friends that I have in my life. It's wonderful to have friends from different stages of life: childhood, college, Moody, having babies, homeschooling, etc. Special, life-long friendships do still exist today. I am so blessed to have some amazing friends. God has abundantly blessed me in this way. True friends are there for you when you need them, they don't judge your messiness or messed up lives, you can call them and pour your heart out to them, you can call them and have them pray for you, they help with out being asked, they give sacrificially, they lovingly point out areas thag you may need to work on, they laugh and cry with you...the list goes on. I have seen first hand so many of these characteristics played out in the last 9 months. Friends have prayed for us, loved on my kids when I couldn't, they brought meals, they've taught my children, they've cried with me, and have just walked beside me on this difficult journey. I am so thankful for each one of you and how God, in His perfect sovereignty,  saw fit to bring you into my life. It is my prayer that I am the kind of friend that others have been to me. Thank you again to each of you who are in my life. I thank God for all of you!!
