Thankful Thursday

~1 Thessalonians 5:18~ Give thanks to God in all circumstances (no matter what they may be), for this is God's will for you (who are) in Christ Jesus.



Thankful Thursday: What Nic is thankful for this week


The relationship we have with the Father

Today’s Thankful Thursday is brought to you by the songs "Keep Singing" and "In You" by MercyMe. No matter what we are feeling or hurting for or mourning over we can find all we need in Him. He is the healer of disease and hurts and broken hearts. He is the Creator of life and the universe. He is our Father, our Defender, our Intercessor, our Redeemer and our Friend. He is faithful and He is the only relationship that will never let us down, never leave us, never turn His back on us or distance Himself from us. He is ALWAYS there for us. And I am so glad b/c I'm emotionally weary and I know I can just climb up on His lap and hand Him my hurts, my disappointments, my sadness and just rest in Him.

Keep Singing

Another rainy day
I can't recall having sunshine on my face
All I feel is pain
All I wanna do is walk out of this place
But when I am stuck and I can't move
When I don't know what I should do
When I wonder if I'll ever make it through

I gotta keep singing
I gotta keep praising Your name
Your the one that's keeping my heart beating
I gotta keep singing
I gotta keep praising Your name
That's the only way that I'll find healing

Can I climb up in Your lap
I don't wanna leave
Jesus sing over me
I gotta keep singing

Can I climb up in Your lap
I don't wanna leave
Jesus sing over me
Oh You're everything I need
And I gotta keep singing

In You

I put my hope in you
I lay my life in the palm of your hand
I'm constantly drawn to you O Lord
In ways I cannot comprehend

It's the creator calling the created
The maker beckoning the made
The bride finding what she's always waited for
When we find ourselves that day

Chorus:
In you where the hungry feast at the table
The blind frozen by colors in view
The lame will dance, they'll dance for they are able
And the weary find rest
O the weary find rest in you

It's no secret that we don't belong here
though set apart by the grace of you
We look for the day when we go to a place
Where the old become brand new

Chorus:
In you where the hungry feast at the table
The blind frozen by colors in view
The lame will dance, they'll dance for they are able
And the weary find rest
O the weary find rest in you....

Where the hungry feast at the table
The blind frozen by colors in view
The lame will dance, they'll dance for they are able
And the weary find rest
O we will find rest in you

I like that photo of Jesus holding the girl in his lap. It creates a perfect visual image of how we should see our Saviour in moments of stress, suffering and tribulation. Love it! :-)
