Thankful Thursday 3/24/11

"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though it waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging."  Psalms 46:1-3

141. I am so thankful I can trust God to take care of things. I am thankful he is lovingly in control of my life.

There is so much on my mind to pray over for so many different people. 
"But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed." Luke 5:16
Surely if Jesus needed to withdraw and pray, then I do too!

"I (God) have no need of a bull from your stall or of goats from your pens, for every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. I know every bird in the mountains, and the creatures of the field are mine. If I were hungry I would not tell you, for the world is mine, and all that is in it." Psalm 50:9-12
