My God is Awesome...

Good Monday Morning Friends...

Church service yesterday was just what my spirit needed.
Sometimes you don't know what your spirit needs until it receives it!
God is always on time isn't he?

One of the songs the Youth Choir sang was "My God is Awesome!" 
and the song reminds us exactly why our God is truly awesome.  
The lyrics made me pause to reflect on some, just some, of the reasons my God is Awesome...

1. This time last year, i was recovering from thyroid surgery.
2. This time last year i could barely move my neck 
3.  This time last year, i was touching the hem of Jesus' garment 
because i knew if i did so i would be heeled.
4.  Today, i am healthy and strong and free of thryoid cancer.
5.  Today, i am pregnant with the sweetest baby boy in the world
6. Today, i am loved and surrouned by family and friends who love me unconditionally.
6.  Today, i continue to praise and worship The One who loves me the most.

These are just some of the reasons why my God is awesome! 

Question of the Day:
Why is your God awesome?

My God is awesome because 9 months ago I hit a snag in the road and dealt with a bout of depression. Instead of running to the doctor's to get a prescription for anit-depressants, I depended on my God to be my strength, my life, and to reveal my purpose...9 months later, I am still dealing with the snag but I am not where I was! Only for His grace and mercy!

Good Morning!
No I haven't started Christmas shopping yet. My mom probably has though! Have you?

God is so very good. I don't always understand things in the moment, but he makes it clear later why things happen. I'm happy for your blessings!

I didn't know you were a thyroid patient - so am I. Mine wasn't cancerous, but I did have to get my thyroid removed (I wrote about it here: http://www.thekimblekrew.com/2012/02/feeling-little-off-have-your-thyroid.html).

So glad you are cancer-free. I know that had to be pretty scary.

As for your question about how awesome God is, I could go on ALL DAY on how he keeps on blessing me (and reminding me to lean not on my own understanding when there are minor and major bumps in the road). He is absolutely amazing.

Thanks for the uplifting post!

Oh Amen! So glad to hear you are in a completely better place. Thyroid cancer, any cancer actually, is no joke! Thank God you are better. And congrats on the baby!!!

I call my God "the Universe", and the Universe is so good to me - everything I ask for it gives, even if I forget I asked for it.

I'm so grateful for my faith in a loving Savior and Heavenly Father. I owe so much to them. Life is full of blessings, even when it's hard for me to see or notice.

Yes he is! That's why each and every morning and night I bow down on my knees and thank him! Joy or sorrow I thank him, for without him I am nothing.

A little bundle of joy coming soon?! Congrats!
