Thankful Thursday

 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
-Hebrews 13:8

I came across this verse a few minutes ago, while looking for a different one (Hebrews 13:5b "I will never leave thee nor forsake thee").

This past year has been a difficult one. At times it seemed like my world was spinning out of control. Yet I know His hand was on it all along.

What a blessing it is to be able to know, with certainty, that God will never change. His Word is as true today as it was 2000 years ago. His promises still remain. He will never leave us or forsake us. He will work all things together for our good (Romans 8:28). When life seems out of control, He is still in control.

How awesome it is to serve our Sovereign, Omnipotent, Immutable God.

Thank you to Lynn for hosting Thankful Thursday this month.


  1. When life seems out of control, He is still in control --- i love this statement. i feel like my life is out of control sometimes and i'm glad to know that He still is in control.

  2. O Thank God He doesn't change!! And He helps us with everything. Thank God it's Him in his infinite wisdom who IS in control, and not us with our limited vision!
    So much to be Thankful for.
    Happy TT.

  3. Me, too - I'm always thankful that God is always in control and that He'll never leave us. What a truly great blessing! Thanks for sharing this. :)

  4. It is awesome that we can cling to the truth that He sees the bigger picture!! Don't know what you are going through, but in the end trusting and following Him will always be worth it. :)

  5. Yes, LORD! Thank You, Father God, for all that You are for us, to us and with us. Thank You for using Jessica to remind me today of Your wonderful awesome promises. In Jesus' name, amen.

    Thank you for stopping by and may the Lord keep you in His care.

  7. Such encouraging words you have for us this Thankful Thursday. God bless you.

  8. Amen! It's such a great comfort that God is in control and He is unchanging. So thankful to know that He has seen you through a difficult year. He is faithful and His mercies endures forever. Though we may not always understand why He allows us to go through certain difficulties, but we have no doubt at all of His love, sovereignty and that He is working all things for His glory and our good. Yes, it is awesome to serve our Sovereign, Omnipotent, Immutable God!

    Thanks for your visit and encouragements. Take care and God bless you and family.

  10. Amen! Romans 8:28 is one of my favorite verses

  11. Your Thankful Thursday was quite lovely. I understand about the "spinning" effect. Focus on the good and the spinning will subside. Truly.


Your comments are such a blessing to me.

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. " Hebrews 10:23-25
