Thank You Father God
Hello dear readers. It’s Day 10 of my blog challenge to write a gratitude post for 21 consecutive days.
Would you like to join me in this challenge? If so, you can simply share your own post and link back to mine, or leave your contribution in a comment box below.
May I encourage you to do this even for one week? Of course you may wish to keep your thoughts private and write in a journal and that’s perfectly fine. Just mention in a comment box below that you are taking part. You will truly find it a benefit and God just loves our expressions of gratitude. So go on – make His day!
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
(2 Timothy 1:7)
“Fear can keep us up all night long, but faith makes one fine pillow.”
Today I want to offer my grateful thanks that I’ve not been given a spirit of fear. And I also want to thank you for the comfort and power resident in your Word, which I often use to meditate upon and confess, in order to counteract those feelings of fear or anxiety, which has sought at times to overwhelm me.
Whether those fears were for my health or safety, or concern about what others thought of me, or anxiety for my loved ones, I’ve come to realise that those fears were needless.
In this age, where there seems to be any number of reasons to be afraid (the threat of terrorism, debilitating illnesses and terminal disease, or catastrophe of some sort), I thank you that you are teaching me to develop and exercise a sound mind with disciplined thought patterns. I thank you that you are enabling me to reject that spirit of fear and focus upon your abiding presence, for you have promised that you will never leave me or forsake me.
I thank you Father God.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For you are with me;
Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
The following are two posts I have written regarding this topic, which you may care to read.
