Iris, who is hosting this Thankful Thursday, has the theme, "Always Something New".
My something new right now is what I posted about this past Saturday and Sunday, observing Lent. I have never done that before.
My change in my observing Lent was to get up earlier every morning for my Quiet Time, and to abstain from caffeine, carbonation and chocolate.
I have had consistent early morning Quiet Time before, but had not been getting up for it lately. I knew from experience what a difference it makes in my attitude, but I guess I had forgotten.
I am just so thankful for the wonderful power Jesus has in my life.
Therefore, I urge you brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Today join us over at Grace Alone for Thankful Thursday and visit many others who are giving thanks. Thank you to Iris for hosting for us this month.
