THANKFUL MONDAY

Mondays are my Weight Watcher's
weigh-ins and meetings.

Today, I had a surprise at weigh-in!

I lost 4.5 lbs. . . a total of 15 lbs
in four weeks.

Now, that is encouraging.

Of course I have lots more to lose.
And results like this will help me
to stick with it.

Thank you Jesus!

When something good happens,
One of the first thoughts in my mind is
"Thank you, Jesus."

Why can I not say that aloud?

Is it because Satan tells me
"No one else does . . .
what will people think?"

I am always thankful to God for everything,
but I tend to keep His praise inside . . .
and only thank Him silently.
He deserves more than that.

I need to make a change.
If it is in my heart and on my mind,
why not let the world know it?

The "world" sure lets everyone know
what is in their hearts and on their minds . . .
and that is not usually a good thing.

Don't know why I said all of that.
I was just intending to post my weight loss.

The "thank you Jesus" just came out
and one thing lead to another.

Are any of you like me?

Share your thoughts with me.

I am like you, I keep my thoughts to myself a lot. But, yes, I am always saying "thank you, Jesus" or "help me, Jesus" in my thoughts.
That's great on the weight loss. I'm trying to start a diet today, if I could just stay away from the sweets, I think I could lose.

Hi Shirley,
Congratulation on your weight loss!! I think it is wonderful to praise the Lord for everything He does for us. I could not even take my next breath if He did not give it to me and I do thank Him out loud because I want satan to know that I know who gives all these blessings to me!!Thank you for sharing.
Blessings,
Sue

Hey Shirley, I know what you are saying sometimes I say it out loud and sometimes I don't. I am always thankful for everyting, the Lord knows that but he also wants to hear it from us. Lets just pray for each other.

Congratulations on the weight loss!!! Keep it up!
I usually say things inside, but usually because I am alone and all my thoughts are just that. Thoughts.
I do not care who I offend, if I decide to say it out loud. They do not care that they offend me, so visa versa!
I will NOT be ashamed of my GOD!
