God is Good! {gratitude community #16-25}

This past weekend I was blessed to attend the Penn Del Women of Purpose Conference in Hershey, PA. God was certainly there with us. I felt His presence all around me while worshipping with Kim Walker-Smith. {she is an amazing and talented worship leader! You couln't help but get into His presence when she started to sing. God has truly blessed her!}  His laughter came through the voice of Liz Curtis Higgs. What an amazing speaker! I was deeply moved by her words. So moved in fact that a certain thing she said has stuck with me. And I know it was meant for me!

She stated in one of her sessions while telling us the story of Abraham and Sarah {in a way only she can tell it!} that "God blesses us because He is good, not because we are good!"

I complain over and over again to my husband, "Why can't we have ________? So-and-so has been blessed and they don't even go to church! When will we get our break? We are good people. We tithe; attend church regulary. When will He bless us?"

When I heard her speak those words, well, lets just say, I was embarrassed! I knew God was talking directly to me!! Shame on me to think that I deserve so much because I think I am a good person! Noone is good. Only God is good! We are all sinners! {Romans 5:8}

I need to start praising Him more for the things He has blessed me with because He is good. Not because I was deserving of them!

So, today, I pick up where I left off a few weeks ago in stating my Gratitiude for the things He has done/given to me!

#16. Women of Purpose
#17. How God moves through friendships
#18. Honesty
#19. Laughter
#20. Raising my hands high in praise to my Father in Heaven
#21. Coming home to missed hugs and kisses
#22. A family to come home to!
#23. The loving arms of my husband.
#24. Pumpkin Cheesecake Icecream!!
#25. Being Humbled by God

Will you spend a moment today giving your Heavenly Father praise?
