Give Thanks to the Lord for He is Good

Thanksgiving Contest

Another contest is here again. I love to join in many contests here in the blogosphere because it’s fun and I enjoy posting, huh! However, this contest is really different and interesting, why? It’s a kind of contest that give glory to God. I remember the song we love to sing in our church in the Phil. It is entitled, “Count your blessings name them one by one and it will surprise you what the Lord has done,” does it sound great? I honestly say Yes and Amen! It’s easy for us to forget what we had received in the past but it’s so hard to say “Thank You” to the giver of life and the Creator of all things. God deserves all the best, he deserves to be given honor and glory.

This year we received a lot of blessings from the Lord. However, it doesn’t end there, we also encounter pains and hardship. Life is full of surprises! But with our God all the pains turn into a blessing. Let me share to you some of the things that I am THANKFUL about:

1. His grace that is sufficient and the life He gave.

2. For God’s provision for our passport renewal, until now we’re not sure where it came from but
God knows, He used someone to bless us (to renew passport in another country is expensive).

3. When we came back to Thailand we spend a lot because of so many things to buy and prepare to settle again. We missed giving our tithe and in my prayer, I told the Lord, after our passport renewal, if He will use someone to bless us, we will give it all back to Him. That was my vow to God. The next month after our passport renewal, true enough, someone send some amount for us, 20,000 baht, for us it’s big already, but I need to pay my vow to the Lord. The blessings was, the next few weeks, we received a message that my niece passed away. I was crying a lot and asked the Lord why? That was an unexpected news because in the morning they just visited my other sister, then in the afternoon, she was taken by the Lord. You know what happened? We don’t have anything to spend for our airfare back home but the Lord send someone to provide. We really didn’t expect to go back to the Phil. during that month because we have nothing to spend. Amazingly, He provided through a friend.

4. In my other post I shared about my niece who died of leukemia last Aug. but she experienced a miracle – for 7 months she was healed and everything was okay but the Lord has His will and He makes no mistakes! Through her death, many came to know the Lord. God can still do miracles! In our pain came the blessing.

5. This month has a lot of celebrations in our family. My sister celebrated her birthday last Dec3, my Nanay(mother) will celebrate her birthday tomorrow (Dec8), my hubby will also celebrate his birthday on the 29th and our nephew on the 30th . But the big thing is, my hubby and I will celebrate our 16th Wedding Anniversary on the 23rd. Can you imagine this kind of celebrations? Just count how old are we now, lol! just kidding. God has been good and faithful to us. Glory to His name!

6. This month I will also celebrate my 1st anniversary in the blogosphere. I was thinking to have a contest too but I don’t know how to do it. If there are friends who are willing to share a helping hand, I guess, I will decide on it. I don’t know how to make a badge and everything needed for a contest.

7. I won in some contests this year here in the blogosphere and I’m thankful to the Lord that I was blessed with friends here and there, not only in my blogging world but also outside the corner of this blog. And besides, 7 is my favorite number, in line with creation (7days). So this is my final thanksgiving list.

Thanks Online Mommy’s Corner for this contest. If I will share our journey, I could have make a book then, just kidding! Anyhow, we are blessed because we obeyed the Lord.
