Giving My Thanks To God You Should Too

I'm sorry this is so long, but I just wanted to give my Thanks to God, He deserves so much. I know that there are a lot of us who have had a m/c/m/c's who are afraid everyday that they/me might m/c again. I just wanted to say that we should be thankful that we are pregnant and instead of fearing the unknown, why not be thankful for what we have now?? The stress from thinking what might happen can only lead to worse things ahead, so lets just let the Good Lord do his work and whatever might come our way: Remember that God has a plan for each and everyone of us! He will do what is best and what is right! So anyway I just want to say Thank you God for what I have, what you have given me, and what I will recieve tomorrow. Amen! God Bless Each and everyone of us!! I DREAMT THAT I WENT TO HEAVEN AND AN ANGEL WAS SHOWING ME AROUND. WE WALKED SIDE-BY-SIDE INSIDE A LARGE WORKROOM FILLED WITH ANGELS. MY ANGEL GUIDE STOPPED IN FRONT OF THE FIRST SECTION AND SAID, "THIS IS THE RECEIVING SECTION. HERE, ALL PETITIONS TO GOD SAID IN PRAYER ARE RECEIVED. I LOOKED AROUND IN THIS AREA, AND IT WAS TERRIBLY BUSY WITH SO MANY ANGELS SORTING OUT PETITIONS WRITTEN ON VOLUMINOUS PAPER SHEETS AND Sc__pS FROM PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD. THEN WE MOVED ON DOWN A LONG CORRIDOR UNTIL WE REACHED THE SECOND SECTION. THE ANGEL THEN SAID TO ME, "THIS IS THE PACKAGING AND DELIVERY SECTION. HERE, THE GRACES AND BLESSINGS THE PEOPLE ASKED FOR ARE PROCESSED AND DELIVERED TO THE LIVING PERSONS WHO ASKED FOR THEM. I NOTICED AGAIN HOW BUSY IT WAS THERE. THERE WERE MANY ANGELS WORKING HARD AT THAT STATION, SINCE SO MANY BLESSINGS HAD BEEN REQUESTED AND WERE BEING PACKAGED FOR DELIVERY TO EARTH.FINALLY AT THE FARTHEST END OF THE LONG CORRIDOR WE STOPPED AT THE DOOR OF A VERY SMALL STATION. TO MY GREAT SURPRISE, ONLY ONE ANGEL WAS SEATED THERE, IDLY DOING NOTHING. "THIS IS THE ACKNOWLEDGMENT SECTION," MY ANGEL FRIEND QUIETLY ADMITTED TO ME. HE SEEMED EMBARRASSED. "HOW IS IT THAT THERE'S NO WORK GOING ON HERE?" I ASKED. "SO SAD," THE ANGEL SIGHED, "AFTER PEOPLE RECEIVE THE BLESSINGS THAT THEY ASKED FOR, VERY FEW SEND BACK ACKNOWLEDGMENTS." "HOW DOES ONE ACKNOWLEDGE GOD'S BLESSINGS?" I ASKED. "SIMPLE," THE ANGEL ANSWERED. "JUST SAY, "THANK YOU, LORD." "WHAT BLESSINGS SHOULD THEY ACKNOWLEDGE?" I ASKED. "IF YOU HAVE FOOD IN THE REFRIGERATOR, CLOTHES ON YOUR BACK, A ROOF OVERHEAD AND A PLACETO SLEEP.... YOU ARE RICHER THAN 75% OF THIS WORLD. "IF YOU HAVE MONEY IN THE BANK, IN YOUR WALLET, AND SPARE CHANGE IN A DISH, YOU ARE AMONG THE TOP 8% OF THE WORLD'S WEALTHY. "AND IF YOU GET THIS ON YOUR OWN COMPUTER, YOU ARE PART OF THE 1% IN THE WORLD WHO HAS THAT OPPORTUNITY." ALSO...."IF YOU WOKE UP THIS MORNING WITH MORE HEALTH THAN ILLNESS.... YOU ARE MORE BLESSED THAN THE MANY WHO WILL NOT EVEN SURVIVE THIS DAY. "IF YOU HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED THE FEAR IN BATTLE, THE LONELINESS OF IMPRISONMENT, THE AGONY OF TORTURE, OR THE PANGS OF STARVATION ... YOU ARE AHEAD OF 700 MILLION PEOPLE IN THE WORLD." "IF YOU CAN ATTEND A CHURCH MEETING WITHOUT FEAR OF HARASSMENT, ARREST, TORTURE OR DEATH ..... YOU ARE ENVIED BY, AND MORE BLESSED THAN THREE BILLION PEOPLE IN THE WORLD. "IF YOUR PARENTS ARE STILL ALIVE AND STILL MARRIED.... YOU ARE VERY RARE. IF YOU CAN HOLD YOUR HEAD UP AND SMILE, YOU ARE NOT THE NORM, YOU ARE UNIQUE TO ALL THOSE IN DOUBT AND DESPAIR." OK, WHAT NOW? HOW CAN I START? IF YOU CAN READ THIS MESSAGE, YOU JUST RECEIVED A DOUBLE BLESSING IN THAT SOMEONE WAS THINKING OF YOU AS VERY SPECIAL AND YOU ARE MORE BLESSED THAN OVER TWO BILLION PEOPLE IN THE WORLD WHO CANNOT READ AT ALL. HAVE A GOOD DAY, COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS, AND IF YOU WANT, PASS THIS ALONG TO REMIND EVERYONE ELSE HOW BLESSED WE ALL ARE. ATTN: ACKNOWLEDGE DEPARTMENT: THANK YOU LORD! THANK YOU LORD, FOR GIVING ME THE ABILITY TO SHARE THIS MESSAGE AND FOR GIVING ME SO MANY WONDERFUL PEOPLE TO SHARE IT WITH. GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU!!! MANY MANY PRAYERS WILL GO OUT TO YOU!!!

Thank you for the lovely message. I feel blessed as well since this pregnancy was really hard to conceive (IVF), and I have taken the time to thank God for every little success that He has granted me, but still it seems like I can never thank Him enough for all the blessings I have received.

Daily Inspiration: If left unchecked, worry will erode the mind until all else is abandonned to an emotionally paralizing fear. Lord, when I worry, I will turn my thoughts to You and trust. Then I will not have a reason to be afraid.

sorry to be a pain, but i dont believe in god, if there was such a man, he would not of let me be raped so viloently, lost 4 babies and had one hell of a rough life, dont believe in him never will, but its nice to know that so many other people do, and if thats what keeps them sane then so be it xxxxx

Teigan, I'm so sorry to hear you don't believe in God and about your life. Man was the one who brought on sin, not God. Try to keep your head up and look to God for healing and happiness. We have so much proof around us that there is a God. Walk outside and look at everything around you, look to the heavens- our solar system is perfect, how babies grow in us-amazing and the birth of a child- I don't know how a person can witness that and call himself an atheist. I hope you do find God someday and live your life for him because you will be amazed by what God will do for you. Don't turn your back on Him, seek Him out and He will be there for you. God Bless You Teigan!! I'll be praying for you. Nahum 1:7 The Lord is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble: And He knows those who trust in Him.

I am about 8 weeks pregnant and I woke up worrying about all of the things that could be going wrong. Thank you for your words and your reminder of God's love. That alone has put my mind at rest. Thanks Jodi and thank you God.

It is interesting to read this when last night i was thanking God for what i had. I do not have a child, my husband has fertility issues. We are both over 40 with no children of our own. We decided last month to foster 2 children in Africa through World Vision and it has brought so much joy to me this month that when af came i didnt cry. I think i finally have seen the light and if we get pg great but if not, i cant wait each day til the mail comes hoping to hear more info on our children in Africa -1 boy, 1 girl. Now both of them will be taken care of and their families until they reach 18 when hopefully they will be all self sufficient by then and able to make a decent living or continue in college. They are our children now and now i am at peace (at last). Thank you for giving me the opportunity to tell you all about the serenity i have finally found after crying month after month when af came. It has set a calmness to us as a couple knowing we have children now, just not living with us. We plan to go over one day and visit them both but in the meantime we will continue to write letters back and forth and enjoy the fruits of what God has given us. We have framed their pictures and they are our children.

from the ttc board....I'm so glad that you finally have some peace in you life right now. It makes me happy for you and for Teigan..I'm sorry to hear that you don't believe in god, but please I don't need to hear that. If you don't believe that's fine, but I don't think we need any negatives on here right now. Did you ever think that it was the devils work that you got raped?? I'm not trying to be mean, but come on, how much bad happens in the world eachday and then you have to look past all of that a see all of the good that has happened too... I'm sorry to say this, but I think that the devil is trying to work on me..I've had a couple of people trying to get me to question god today and that's just not an option for me, I believe in him so much. I actually think that the last m/c I had even brought me closer to god. I think we have a better relationship right now. It's your business if you don't believe, but please don't come on here and try to ruin the positive atomosphere in here. If there isn't a god where do we go when we die, If there isn't a god who takes care of you in your time of need...I've got a question for you: Do you believe in the Devil? Well God Bless you teigan b/c you really need it. I will pray for you, I will pray that you find God through all of you pain b/c obivously you haven't let go of your past. God Bless all of you!!!!!

jodi are you having a laugh... what the hell is negative about me getting raped, i dont believe in him like i dont believe in santa claus, have you ever seen them both??? my opinion is i dont believe in him, im not bendig your arm back with a gun at your head and telling you to not believe in your religion, but im not been funny but how dare you say it was the work of the devil who got me raped, you seriously need to take a break from this, as it seems to have brain washed you, i was raped because i was in the wrong place at the wrong time nothing to do with the red man with the pointy tail!! and for the c___p about if there isnt a god then where do we go when we die... we go to sleep forever in a box ( choice of colours ) under the ground ready to decompose. in here there is not a good atmosphere its a forum you cant feel anything, its got nothing to do with wether i have let go of my past, and i take care of myself when i am ill... i mean theres people called nurses and doctors that i go to who help me when i am ill.... i dont need your prayers and i dont worry about heaven and hell because i dont think they excist, but you do so thats your opinion, but please dont put words in my mouth and feel sorry for me as i hate that

hey lighten up both of you! this is nor the time or place for a discussion like this. I am here to talk about my morning sickness and pita bread cravings!!!

 

Jodi - August 26

Teigan, I apologize if I offended you, but I believe strongly in God. I'm not pushing him on you as you didn't have to come here in the first place if you don't believe. I'm not going to fight about this, it would be a big waste of my time. I never said I felt sorry for you I said I'm sorry you don't believe in God. I want you to know that I don't have to see him to believe in him. But, you might not want me to, but I'm gonna keep praying for you!!! Dear Heavenly Father, I pray for Teigan. I don't know this girl, but she seems like she could use your help right now. I don't know her past or what she has been through, but I know she must question you b/c she wouldn't have came to this thread. So please dear Lord, make her see what's right. Also, thank you for the good doctor's appt. yesterday and for the wonderful day today. In Jesus Name Amen!!!
