Hello, Crystal!!
Terrific article with Scripture! We all need ‘reminders’ to THANK FATHER GOD!!

Since re-reading & studying God’s Word every day since 2012 (or late 2011, at my age, “the mind is the first to go~!” LOL!) my heart, mind and spirit have been filled with sooo much JOY and PEACE!! Blessings I can’t begin to describe, Crystal!

Can’t recall if I told you…our son, Chris, moved back home with us on May 4th., 2013. (His rent was raised in June to $150!!! No way could Chris pay all his expenses, plus have money left over for “good times” & savings.)
Had put on those ‘filters’ on TV and computer, as Pastor Jack Wellman suggested. And continue praying to Jesus’ Holy Spirit to break the binds of addiction to pornography. (As he could always find that filth outside this household, right?)

Crystal, can’t thank you enough for your advice & prayers for Chris. He turned 37 on June 18th. of this year. (And I’m still 29~! How is this possible? Hee-Hee!)

Oodles of God’s blessings upon you, Crystal, and your ‘small’ family!!
Love, your sister in Christ Jesus….Patty

Dearest Patricia,

It’s so good to know that things are well with your son moving back home. One more thing to add to our thankfulness list! God bless!

Joel July 29, 2013 at 11:40 pm

I am too, thankful for God is always on the work of restoring of what was satan has stolen from us. 1. Our first love to our Lord Jesus Christ, 2. our relationship with our love ones (family memebers, friends, church mates), 3. our health, 4. our business, 5. the joy of salvation that we received from our Lord, etc. God promised in JOEL 2:25 “So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, The crawling locust, The consuming locust, And the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you.”

God is so great, He never let us stay in a lukewarm and a broken hearted situation. This should be one that we always be thankful to God. Psalm 147:3 “He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds.”

Thank you Madam for sharing this wonderful collections of God’s Word. More blessings be on you!

In Christ Jesus,

Dear Joel,

Your thankful list is awesome! I especially hold on to the promised that God “will restore the years that the swarming locust has eaten”. Have a wonderful day. God bless,

Really love your articles…so helpful! Are you going to do a bible study anytime in the future? Right now I am again struggling to find a church where I fit in. Just don’t fit in the mega church. Grew up in church of 250-350. Have been trying again.

Crystal McDowell August 6, 2013 at 3:39 pm

Dear Susie, you have much to offer the body of Christ…I hope you will search diligently for the right ministry in which God can use your gifts for the kingdom of Christ.

God bless,

Great article, Crystal. Thanks for sharing it.

Thanks so much Bill!

In Christ,

Nancy August 8, 2013 at 1:49 pm

Right now at this time in my life most people wouldn’t be so thankful. Let me tell you, I am even thankful for the bad things that happened to me as a child. Not sure why, but the Lord has always been there for me through every one. Even before I got saved 14 years ago. I guess it strengthens my faith in him, knowing he has always been there for me…. Thanks for the article, I need encouragement as of late. Have a blessed day!

Crystal McDowell August 10, 2013 at 4:10 pm

Dear Nancy,
I pray your heart continues to be encouraged towards thankfulness even in difficulty.

Love in Christ,

Isaac November 21, 2014 at 11:24 pm

Nancy, that is so true about God being there even before we come to know Him. I was saved when I was 14 but when I look back, Jesus was there guiding us and protecting us into the Truth.
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:13-16
