Godís blessings come in many ways. One of the ways is through answered prayers. When we know God has heard us, we can be confident in doing just what He says. The joy comes when we know that we are doing His will and everything is under His control.
The devil can trick us in many ways, as one of my prayers is that I will not fall into deception. When we know we heard God right, this is such a blessing because we know God has answered our prayers.
I want to thank God for blessing me in many ways. First He blesses me with a writing ministry, which I am very grateful. He allows me to express myself through writing and blesses others through the message that He has for them through my writing. This is a privilege way to serve Him.
Secondly, I am grateful for the calling to serve in churches in the area of missions. One day Iíll produce a mission magazine, but for now, I am working on missions newsletter project for churches. I am thankful to God for using me in this area as missions is in my blood. Since the earlier years of my Christian life, Iíve always been connected with missions. Thank God He is accelerating that right now.
Thirdly, I want to thank God that I have no financial commitment and that I have food to eat everyday, many nice clothes to wear, and a shelter over my head. I am thankful for His provision, that I am never in lack and that I have plenty to thank Him for. I thank the Lord for all the bountiful blessings and the great love that He has for me.
Fourthly, I want to thank God for calling me to be an Evangelist, sharing the gospel with others and see them coming to the saving knowledge of who Jesus is. I am so glad that I am investing in souls for the Kingdom of God and this is the highest profession that anyone can have. I am so glad God chooses me and appointed me to serve Him. Thank You, Lord!
Fifthly, I thank God for my family, where He has placed me, giving me the privilege to pray for my family into His Kingdom. I am so grateful that I am the first in my family to be saved, and the honor to bring all of them into the Kingdom of God. I thank God for all the trials that Iíve gone through, to strengthen and mould me to be shaped for Jesus use. Thank You, Jesus, thank You Lord!
Sixthly, I thank God for the burden for souls, that soon Iíll start evangelising my neighbourhood and claim Katong for Jesus. I thank God for the opportunity to serve and being used in this area to impact my own neighbourhood. Thank God also for a church that He wants me to start, that it will be the beginning of many souls coming into Godís kingdom. Thank You Jesus, thank You Lord!
I want to thank God for everything that He has blessed me with. I thank Him for His goodness, grace and mercy. I thank Him for His abounding love and everlasting blessings that Iíve received from Him throughout eternity. I thank God for my salvation, that I am saved and have a mansion waiting for me, ready in heaven. Help me Lord to obey and serve You so that Iíll be rewarded when You come back for me.
Thank You also for the heavenly gifts to serve You Lord. I thank You for my ministry and I thank You Lord for having so faithfully blessed me with everything good. Thank You Lord, thank You!
Thank You for moulding and shaping me to what You want me to become. Thank You for honing my character and pruning me to be what a child of God is meant to be like. Thank You for the fruits of the Spirit and that I can come before Your presence any time of the day, whenever I am oppressed by the enemy and when things donít go the way that it should be. Thank You for Your presence, thank You!
Thank You most of all that I am Your child and You love me so very much, that no words can explain or describe how much You loved me. Thank You Jesus, thank You Lord! Thank You I am Your precious child and I belong to You and I am Yours. It is such a joy to know that I belong to You and that You are my heavenly Father, Creator, Lord and Master. I am thankful and I am grateful. Thank You Lord, thank You Jesus!
I am blessed beyond measure and I can give thanks to my almighty God who has given me such a privilege to be His child. I am thankful, Lord, and I am grateful that I am Yours and You are inside of me, guiding and leading me through each step of the way. Thank You Jesus, thank You Lord!!!

Deline, though our hearts hurt as we consider the plight of the misfortunate on Thanksgiving, and I do, we still need to express our thanks to God Almighty for His bountiful blessings on us. I appreciated reading this article. I have already written my Thanksgiving article several days ago in the form of a poem, "Thankful Thanksgiving." Let us send up a prayer to God for those who do not realize they do have something to be thankful for. I read your profile, and it is very interesting. I have a missionary story time page on my website, www.dustonthebible.com, and if you have an interesting missionary experience, feel free to share it with me. Happy Thanksgiving. Thomas
