We are each designed for a unique and divine purpose. Live yours!

1) I am thankful for ever-growing number of prayer warriors I am blessed to be meeting. These folks pray just because they are asked to and because they believe so ardently in the genuine power of effectual fervent prayer.

2) I am thankful for the way God reminds me He is intimately and lovingly involved in my life. I had a discouraging day recently and that evening two Christian sisters offered encouragment and love. AND God used their obedience without question to share a devotional on encouragment. AND my husband called while I was meeting with them to urge us to go outside to see the double rainbow God has placed in the sky! (Great is His faithfulness!)

3) I am thankful for my new job. I have already had the opportunity to make a positive difference there and will be continue to have opportunities to grow and share my talents and abilities.

4) I am thankful for the simple things in life: morning prayer, coffee, clouds, my faith, and most of all my Savior.

5) I am thankful for the work God continues to do in and with me. I know that means He cares enough to refine and reshape me for His purpose.

Isn't it neat when God places you where He exactly wants you to be...in no.3, how you are already making a difference in such a short period of time. May you continue to reflect His light in your workplace. God bless!
