Being Thankful

Count your blessings instead of your crosses;
Count your gains instead of your losses.
Count your joys instead of your woes;
Count your friends instead of your foes.
Count your smiles instead of your tears;
Count your courage instead of your fears.
Count your full years instead of your lean;
Count all the kind deeds instead of the mean.
Count your health instead of your wealth;
Count on Jesus instead of yourself.

A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:

Psalm 100:4 
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise:
be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

Sometimes, we tend to look at the glass as half-empty rather than
half-full. Yet the Bible tells us to be content with what we have and
to praise God in the good times and the bad. We are to enter His gates
with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise!

This world is a very dangerous place that we live in but we know that God
is looking out for us. Jesus will never leave us, nor forsake us. Every day,
we should count our blessings and know that in the midst of our trials,
God is still on the Throne! We must trust in Him even when things look
troublesome around us. Count all the blessings...write them down.

When we keep our eyes upon Jesus and the good He has done in
our hearts and our in lives, we cannot be negative about things. 
Great is our Lord and mighty are His deeds!

Colossians 3:15 
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts,
to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

Colossians 4:2
Continue in prayer, and watch in the same
with thanksgiving;

Philippians 4:6
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer
and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests
be made known unto God.

Be encouraged today...Jesus loves you and so do we! If you need prayer,
please feel free to email us your prayer request. We care about you.
