I am thankful for being able to keep working towards finishing my degree even if it is taking me longer than I had planned. Also, even if I don't go to graduate school or work, I will be able to stay home and take care of my family and our home. =)
I'm thankful for my loving husband who works hard so I can stay home with our two beautiful children.
I am thankful for the rain God gave us today!
I am thankful for the recent challenge to "plant seeds" in people's lives to help them come to know Jesus as their Savior. It is God's responsibility to bring them to salvation.
Thank you all for your testimonies of God's goodness! Keep it coming. :) Anon. - It is a good thing to be reminded of our need to plant seeds. And of course we are not the ones to give salvation. I would hesitate to say it is God's "responsibility" to bring them to salvation just for the fact that some will not accept, and God does not fail. If we leave it as God's responsibility and someone does not come to salvation, the fault lies with the one who is deemed responsible. There can no fault be found with God.God is who works in our hearts, but ultimately it is the responsibility of every person to make a life change and accept what Christ did for all.
I just want to clarify:I am by no means trying to contradict anything, and perhaps it is just a matter of semantics. I agree, all we can do is plant seeds in people's lives, God is the one who does the working in their hearts. I guess I just wanted to make sure it is understood that each person is given the responsibility to accept and believe.
While giving eternal life to those spiritually dead is the work of God, I was also reminded that I should see every individual in my life as someone who needs me (because I have the gospel).
