Thankful Thursdays

This is the beginning of one of the practical ways that I will be carrying out my 2011 resolutions. I want to start blogging on Thursdays about things that I am grateful for. Anna at Hope Road was doing something similar on Mondays. Her inspiration was the blog A Holy Experience.

So, as I begin this year, as I already mentioned, a little late, I want to start my list of 1,000 gifts.

1. Grace that is greater than my sin

2. Freedom

3. Two hands to do housework with

4. A chance to stop and rest even if my to do list isn’t done.

5. Sun shining in my bedroom window.

6. Beautiful music

7. Hymns and spiritual songs

8. My under the cabinent CD player/radio that my awesome hubby got me for Christmas!

9. My wonderful husband

10. Waking up, laying in bed for a few moments and then feeling my little girl moving around inside of me.


About Melanie

My Being Purpose Statement: As a part of Christ's Bride and as one of His precious treasures whom He redeemed with His precious blood, I purpose in my heart to love and adore Him with all of my heart, soul, and mind (Matthew 22:37). I want to be beautiful in the sight of my Saviour, Jesus Christ. I will therefore pursue holiness (1 Peter 1:16) that I might worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness (1 Chronicles 16:29, Psalms 96:9) and go and proclaim His love, sacrifice and salvation to others who have not heard that I may have the beautiful feet of them that bring glad tidings of good things (Isaiah 52:7, Romans 10:15). My Life Purpose Statement: I desire to serve my Redeemer and Savior Jesus Christ throughout my entire life by ministering to girls and women. I pray that I will be able to bring many girls and women to the Cross of Christ that they may find salvation from a loving and gracious Savior. It is my heart’s desire to encourage girls and women who know the Savior to deepen their relationship with Him and to fall more and more in love with Him. I also want to serve women by assisting them in their everyday lives whether I am rolling up my sleeves to work alongside them or am connecting them with people, ministries, and or resources that will be helpful and beneficial to them. By God’s grace and power, through His Spirit, and for His glory will I endeavor to fulfill this purpose
