Giving Thanks Daily - Begin Anew

In 2010 I was prompted to journal about gratitude - in fact, this is the blog that grew from that challenge. In the past few years, writing has been difficult. If you have read some of my entries, you have followed some of my journey - wading through chronic illness, and treating a seemingly impossible disease. Yet God!

The foundation that was set in the over 1,000 entries of Giving Thanks Daily, and the promises of our Creator have kept my thoughts in the right place, for the most part... lately, I have noticed that I am struggling much more, and my thoughts, although I am not doubting God's goodness or gifts, I am finding that I am less positive. I experience much more anxiety, frustration and disappointment than when I am not in the Word and finding gratitude in my daily routine.

So, today, as we draw near to the beginning of a new year, I will begin again.

As I was thinking and pondering a new start with the daily writing, I remembered why, for me it's so very important for me to share my faith. To share what I learn. To share the struggles and the victories. Because I need it, I desire to draw nearer my Savior, and know all that He has given for me to learn.

I am thankful for this opportunity, and I thank you for joining me. As I have done in the past, I invite you to give thanks daily as well.

Be Not Troubled

Are you going through troubles?
Try to allow God to reason with you... rebuke the enemy. You've come way too far.
This too shall pass.
Remember WHOSE you are.
Talk to those who will affirm you, not beat you down. Often, it's those who we love the most who tear us down the most.
BACK OFF SATAN...This man/girl speaking right now.... belongs to God... and Jesus is on the throne is now pleading for me to be encouraged... Holy Spirit move me toward peace... comfort and wholeness in You. Help me know that 'man's' word means nothing - because nothing compares to YOUR goodness.

"Have you ever come on anything quite like this extravagant generosity of God, this deep, deep wisdom? It’s way over our heads. We’ll never figure it out. Is there anyone around who can explain God? Anyone smart enough to tell him what to do? Anyone who has done him such a huge favor that God has to ask his advice? Everything comes from him; Everything happens through him; Everything ends up in him. Always glory! Always praise! Yes. Yes. Yes."
Romans 11:33 (The Message)

"Having problems that seem impossible to solve? Are you in a situation that you would like to remove yourself from? Would you like to see light without having to go through the tunnel?
Well--you certainly can . . .
Because God loves to answer the prayers of those who put their trust in Him and cry out to Him for deliverance.
Don't believe me? Give it a try and see for yourself!!!
Go ahead---I dare you!"

Pray Always

Heavenly and gracious Father... thank You for doing what I wasn't able... for sending Jesus to take "it all away"... for giving me choice so that I am truly Yours... help me Holy Spirit to keep in Your presence... stay true to Your desires, Your Word, Your will. Help me to (DAILY) BREAK FREE... help me to remember that I am forever forgiven - that gratitude comes in humility and is a gift that I can take in, give out and never let go of. Help me to fight through the grind, the challenges and reap the blessings in it all. Coming to You Lord Jesus and trusting Your intercession and knowing what my needs truly are.

Day 1 - Giving Thanks Daily

Today's Giving Thanks Daily Thought

Hold tightly to God's Word and promises!!!!
In the tough times and good times, meditate and reflect - dwell in what is good and what is right. Let go of the world, the fear, the uncertainty!
Remember that the enemy's (satan) only goal is to get your eyes off the Lord… to divide, incite fear, deceive and lie, and put blinders on people. Let it be the Word that washes over you, and the words of this world roll off. Remember who you are in Christ.
And, hold your ground in His presence - seek wisdom and truth.

Love in Christ,

Shawn Delia Boreta
