Thankful Thursday Thirteen!

I think this is the ultimate in meme multitasking, combine the Thankful Thursday with the Thursday Thirteen! I did this last week and I thought there is no way I could come up with a fresh list for this week. Of course after spending time with God this morning it was easy to find 13 things to thank Him for, so here is my TTT (Thankful Thursday Thirteen):

Y Thank You for the opportunity to serve such a BIG and awesome God!
Y Thank You for the gifts of encouragement I have received as I seek Your will for me,
timely words of scripture as well as words and prayers of others!
Y Thank You that You are in control even when everything around me says otherwise!
Y Thank You that You have ordained all my days and nothing in my life is a surprise or shock
to you!
Y Thank You for the amazing gift of prayer! And that You would desire a relationship with
Y Thank You for the for the gift of amazing grace!
Y Thank You for the gift of praise & worship!
Y Thank You for equipping me to do all the things You have called me to do!
Y Thank You for loving me in spite of all that I am!
Y Thank You for being a Faithful father and the comfort and knowledge that you will never
forsake me!
Y Thank You for the preservation of your word! Thank You that it is so available and
Y Thank You for transforming me and changing my "want to!"
Y Thank You for Jesus!

Also, Thank You to all of you who are encouraging me as well as praying with me and for me. I can feel the prayers and the fear is definitely not as intense. At this point, it is more the financial aspect of going that is hanging me up. However, I know God is my Jehova Jireh and is more than capable of providing the funds for me to go, after all He seems to have provided me the courage!
Have a Blessed Thankful Thursday!

Happy TT Kelly,

Count me in to continue praying for you on your BIG decision "to go or not to go" to the conference.

I may consider this sometime in my future.

I'm glad the fear part is out of the way. Hey, after raising 7 children, come on, what could you really be afraid of? (He He...)

God is in control, you're so right.

Can't wait to find out the final verdict!

What a great list!!! :-)

Know that I'm continuing to lift you to the Father as you seek him for wisdom for your decision.

God has a PERFECT plan for you....and he will lead, guide and direct your every step.

Blessings to you today.

You are right! When we spend time with GOD we WILL become how aware we are of our blessings! Thanks you so much for sharing YOURS!

I loved particularly the one about chaning my "want to". SO great the way God does that. "Delight yourself in me and I will give you the desires of your heart!" I love that there were no materials on your list! So many were the very promises of God! Amen!

It's All Good! said...

Hi Kelley, That's a great list of thankfuls! Have a great day!

Melanie said...

Great post Kelley! So great how you found your 13 thanks after spending time with God & I bet you had more than 13! Awesome girl!!

Okay, about She Speaks, I would love to go together if God gives us the thumbs up. I'm 3 hours from you. :) Doesn't look like my sister will be going after all since she just started a new job.
So, flying would be the cheapest out of KC. That's usually where we fly out of to go anywhere.
Well, let's continue to pray about this. Finances are my thing too.
Blessings & Hugs~

Just wanted you to not be scared if you read my post today...that was all 11 years ago...pre-back to Jesus days! Lol...just didn't want you to think I was going to be this hot-tempered, tatooed crazy woman!
One night of crazy...leads to a heart crazy in love with our Savior. Go figure.
Love ya,
