30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 28

My mom took a bad fall today. I was clear around by the car when I heard her yell, “I’m going to fall.” My neighbor had a friend over all the way on the other side of his yard. We both heard her head hit when she fell and came running, he called 911 and I called my brother asking if he was home and urging him to come quick that mom had fallen and hit her head hard. He got there before the ambulance and the EMT’s arrived shortly after. When they sat her up, her head did not even appear to have a knot on it. What?! They checked her vitals, her eye movement, everything was good. She said she really felt the Lord had touched her head and healed it and was continuing to heal it. As the evening has progressed, her knee and wrist are becoming sore. She is on the couch reading right now as I right this, she is sleeping in there tonight so that I can keep an eye on her. I am so thankful that God watched over her and that He protects and heals us. I heard her head hit when she fell and it was loud. I am in awe at how God stands in watch over us. Thank You Poppa! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

Jesus took 5 loves and two fishes and fed the multitude and verse 42 says, “And they did all eat, and were filled.” I don’t know what your situation looks like, but I know Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever and what He did for one He will do for you. If you have a need, take it to Him, praying in faith, and He will meet that need. It may not be met in the way you want it, but He will provide according to His will and always for what is best for His children. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“41 And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave [them] to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all. 42 And they did all eat, and were filled.” ~ Mark 6:41-42

Jesus didn’t want to send the people away with our food. The disciples, who had seen so many miracles, said should we go but two hundred pennyworth of bread. Oh, they were about to see He was bigger than that… 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“37 He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat? 38 He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.” ~ Mark 6:37-38

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 27

Me and God have had some long conversations about this heart of mine. It cares too much, it breaks so easily, and it was made just exactly as it was supposed to be. God has told me so many times that I have His heart and that is why it feels every little detail. I am thankful to have my Father’s heart. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 26

Thanksgiving is a day you normally spend with your families. There was a lot of debate this year as to what was safe and what wasn’t during these new COVID times. We had made plans for a family gathering and were set on what we were going to bring, but my mom has had bronchitis for awhile and the cough with it is horrid. Then I came down with a low grade fever and nausea. I’ve tested negative for COVID with the rapid test (regular test pending) so no family gathering for us. So as I cooked today, I was thankful I had food for us to cook. I was thankful we could be together and not in a hospital alone somewhere. I was thankful the rest of my family could still meet for Thanksgiving. The more I thought about it, the more my heart just overflowed with gratitude. I am so thankful to God for His provision in too many ways to list. Today, for day 26, I could not pick just one thing. My heart is just thankful, period. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

This verse just really touched my heart this morning. I was thinking I should post a “thankful” verse for Thanksgiving, but as I read this verse it just continued to speak to my heart. This verse says Jesus was moved “with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd…” He was moved toward compassion toward them. We are living in a time where we need more of that. He began to teach them, He didn’t condemn them for the place they were in. He began to teach them. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty thankful for that in my life. I am so thankful He poured out His compassion over me and I’m so thankful He continues to teach me daily! I am so far from perfect, but I’m teachable. I’m moldable. He is my potter and I’m the clay being molded into the woman of God He wants me to be. This verse suddenly became a verse all about Thanksgiving to me. We are no longer sheep without a shepherd. He is our Shepherd, if only you allow Him to lead you! Happy Thanksgiving y’all. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.” ~ Mark 6:34

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 25

My Father knows what I need before I even realize I have the need and He makes sure I have the provision to meet it. That is the kind of awesome God we serve. I am thankful that my needs are met and I don’t have to stress about how I’m going to meet them. I praise the Lord that He loves us so much He takes care of us down to the smallest of detail! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

It always breaks my heart when someone doesn’t believe in the Lord or receive His word, but we aren’t supposed to argue with them. You have planted a seed. If you argue it, you risk planting resentment in that soil too. God may send someone else along at a different time when their heart is at a different place to receive the word you planted to water it and life will spring forth. Shake the dust from your feet and keep going knowing it is in God’s hands. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“{10} And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place. {11} And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.” ~ Mark 6:10-11

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 24

Have you ever met anyone who knows everything? It doesn’t matter what it is, they know the answer. They know absolutely everything there is to know about everything. Yeah, I’m not her. I am constantly learning, because of that I’m growing, I’m not stagnant. I’m okay with not knowing it all. In fact, I’m thankful that I’m teachable. Lord mold me to be more like you daily and never allow me to reach a place where I think I know it all. I never want to be that kind of person. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

These verses sure speak of the days we are living in right now. I want to be want of those labourers for the Lord that this verse speaks of for such a time as this. Many more are needed to answer the call. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“{37} Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly [is] plenteous, but the labourers [are] few; {38} Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.” ~ Matthew 9:37-38
