Being Thankful For All We Have

Thanks be to God!

What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God's law, but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.

Romans 7:24-26 NIV

We can all say what Paul has said above.

What a wretched man I am!

The "law at work in the members of my body"

Is the sin deep within us.

It refers to everything within us that is more loyal to our old way of selfish living than to God.

This struggle with sin was as real for Paul as it is to us.

"above"quoted from my notes in my Bible"

We all sin, that's just the way we are..Paul is miserable in this verse, he knows his sin..

But he also recognizes The Lord Jesus.

He knows he is forgiven because he as been through so much in his life.

The pain he felt as he cried out to the Lord was real.

It is real for us to, we live life as we go about our day, we need to talk to Jesus as we live.

His strength in us is powerful.

Be thankful for all He has done, recognize the Cross..

This is an inspirational hub. We may fail God many times, but He will always be there for us.

Psalms 118:1 “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; his love endures forever.”

Happy thanksgiving!

So true so true Betty yes we all need to look at ourselves, to see where we are, as improvement is needed for us to be saved from our sinful ways. What a great friend we have who will never leave us no matter what.

God loves all

jesusmyjoy . . .Voted up and all the way. Great read. Blessed my soul. I found a deep solace in your writing. Thank YOU for sharing the TRUTH, Jesus, who knows us better than we know ourselves. I see myself as a piece of broken pottery being repaired each day by the Master in the Potter's House (Jeremiah). And I want you to know that I am now a follower and Invite YOU to check out my hubs and prepare to laugh, but mostly I deal in clean laughter. And a little drama. But all good. And I would love for you to follow me too. I will go now and leave you with my favorite chapter: Psalm 139. Sincerely, Kenneth Avery, from Hamilton, Alabama, a small town in northwest Alabama that looks like Mayberry on the Andy Griffith Show.

Betty so many people want more than they have now they can not be happy with what they have, but praise God for those who know enough is enough and they are thankful for what God has given to them, I find that what I have will do me, but God just keeps on giving to me, we have a great God who loves to give.
