Great word Pat!

GivenThanks Ministry

I have loved God since I was a young child! God just put a desire in my heart for Him. In my case, I was never required to “go to church” by my parents and there was not a great amount of talk about the Lord or the Bible but I just always had a desire for learning more about the Lord. When I got in my teens, I studied different religions and Christianity is the only one to which I was drawn. I mark the date I got saved as January 15, 1969. I was not quite 16 years old at that time. Although I had loved God and wanted to serve him for years before that, in 1969, I had a greater understanding and made a decision publicly at a Billy Graham crusade. I have always felt called to ministry and have done various ministries throughout the years…

Is this really me?

Sometimes I think….is this really me? Have I changed that much? It’s hard to believe at times how much I have changed over the years. How God and His word has become such a big part of my life and I know this will never change.
I was so lost, for so long, but He knew; He knew I would find my way to Him. I think back if I just knew then what I know now and didn’t push Him away, where would I be now, but then I know it took everything in the past to make me who I am now and to be led to Him now in my life. I know He has forgiven me of my sins and I know the Lord loves me very much; I just need to love Him in the same way. I am trying to do just that, trying to do better, do what He wants in my life, not what I want. Trying to love all, to help and bless others, to look at their heart not their appearance, to help the poor, to think before I do or say something and many other things. No, I am not perfect and He knows I will make mistakes but that’s what His loving grace is for and as long as I am trying to become what He wants, I know everything will be ok.


Laughter does the heart good…

women having fun

Even God laughs. Take time now and then, have some fun, smile and laugh. Laughter does the heart good.

Laughter is good for your health. Laughter relaxes the whole body. Laughter boosts the immune system. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Laughter protects the heart.

Matthew 18:3-4 Jesus said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Proverbs 17:22 A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

Here it is Lord! You can have it all!

Philippians 2:12-13 Therefore, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.

Here it is Lord! I give you all of my heart!

Yes, it’s something we need and many times we need a little extra…

Strength, it’s something we all need. Strength to get through our days at work. Strength to get through an illness or injury. Strength to deal with the many things that life throws at us.

Yes, it’s something we need and many times we need a little extra to deal with the many things life puts in our path.

I pray you feel Gods presence in your life and may He bless you with an abundance of strength to get through whatever comes your way.

Keeping these 2 verses close to your heart can help a lot when maybe you feel your strength fading some.

2 Samuel 22:2-3 the Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; the God of my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge.

Jeremiah 16:19 O Lord, my strength and my fortress, my refuge in the day of affliction.
