How many things are you grateful for? God is a loving God. He loves to give us many gifts. I am grateful that HE loves me. That Jesus is such a wonderful saviour, for my health, a place to live , for food to eat, for work He has blessed me with. I think the list could go on all day. What are you gateful for that God has blessed you with ?

I am grateful for every day of life i am granted. I lost my husband to cancer four years ago. Life is indeed precious to me and I am grateful for it. I am also grateful to be blessed by the love and support of family and friends. When you think that you have nothing to be grateful, take a look around you. There is always something to be grateful for.

I think there are a lot of things to be grateful for...and I've actually sat down and come up with over 100 things some time ago. For right now, I am thankful for: my wife, my kids, my grandkids,forgiveness, reconciliation, a roof over my head, clean drinking water, food in belly...and in the cupboard, my church, God's Word, the job God is preparing for me, the job my wife has, the cars that we have, that we're able to meet our monthly expenses and contribute to the church, my health...and I'm sure the list goes on and on.

I'm grateful for all the things that God has given me. Although there is so much sin in this world that we live in now a days, God is always there to give me hope and strength from the things that I least expect. I happen to drop by a video from youtube that my friend tagged in facebook, they were missionaries who went to the remote areas Uganda. What really struck my heart was when I saw 2 ill-stricken kids lying on the ground as if they were almost dying. It is said that their parents left them and only their 8 year old big sister was left to take care of them. Their big sister arrived on the place who walked a long way to fetch water for bathing. She took the 2 children lying on the floor and bathe them on a small basin one by one and placed them on a clean mat. It really made me cry watching the video and seeing what unconditional love means.. I see God in the acts of the little child and it made me realize how lucky I am right now.

God has blessed my family so much. I am grateful first of all for Jesus dying on the cross for my sins so that I could be saved. Beyond that, there are so many blessings that I could not begin to count all the things I am grateful for!

Thank you for this wonderful starting topic. I was so ungrateful lately because the trials and problems i had encountered were too much to bear. But God is truly great. I thank Him for everything for good things and bad things life. I thank Him for the breath of life, for providing our daily needs, for my husband, for my family and for the work, though it seems like an exploitation coz the wages is just good enough for my fare going to the work place. ( hehe).God is good all the time. I do believe that He has in store something great for me. LEt me say a " BREAKTHROUGH". Thank you Lord and I miss to have an intimate prayer and worship with you.....God bless us all.

Hi speedtypist yes I have seen wages go down and down over the past twnty years. it is true " the rich get richer and the poor get poorer At least you have a job which is a blessing in todays market. it is through our trial amd problems that God teaches us. i know. That is usually when I learn important lessons Of course God has sometthing wonderful planned for you. he is our loving father and wants to make us happy.And you have your family, which many people today do not Why not take a few minutes every morning to thank God and ask Him to show you where He wants you to go and what He wants you to do. You will be surpirised at His answer. i know I was and am very much richer ( in the heart, my pocket book is almost empty ha ha ) May the sunshine of Gods love bless you and your family

of the many things and deeds that i am grateful for, it is the very life that surprises me. God is truly a loving GOD. HE planned everything for everyone. He gave mylot for the educated unemployed, who spend time online. And, there are more gifts. HE has a wonderful design. How else would a Bumble bee fly? ... if you ask an aviation engineer, he would find all flaws in the design of a bumble bee, too heavy trunk, too small and feeble wings. BUT, it has been flying since pre-historic days. I don't confine myself to a name .... of the GOD. He is omni potent. and, all available. thanks.
