        I Am Thankful

        810 450 Journey Church

        God is good to me. I am grateful.

        Not that I measure up to God’s commands in the Bible, which say, “give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:18), and, “giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 5:20). However, I am thankful.

        I am thankful for (in no particular order) …
