Thankful Thursday - Provision

For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God's abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.

Consequently, just as the result of one trespass was condemnation for all men, so also the result of one act of righteousness was justification that brings life for all men.

~Romans 5:17-18 NIV

What greater provision can be provided than that of eternal life? I'm SO thankful to my Savior for His sacrifice that provides eternal life to all whom believe in Him.

My Lord provides all I need in life:
  • I have a home to live in
  • We have cars that are paid for
  • We have food to eat
  • Plenty of clothes to wear
  • Air to breathe
  • Water to drink
So, while I've spent a great deal of time whining this week, I offer my praises to my Lord and, again, beg His forgiveness. I am truly thankful that I have all I need to survive, the rest is never guaranteed, and, in the end, is just worthless stuff we cannot take with us.

Wow! I love it ... "So while I've spent a great deal of time whining..." I think we can all say that but praise God He loves us anyway! (ha ha) His provision and His forgiveness is a whole bunch to shout about. Glad to see you connect with us at TT! -Laurie
