"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." ~ from ISAIAH 61 Bible verse for this Blog

Last week's WFW, when I shared "Indescribable Gift" verse, I added various outreach organizations because of how The Message expanded 2 Corinthians 9:15, and then I decided (actually God spoke clearly to me) that I should have made them into a collage for a WFW. So I have... with a new verse and an even fuller heart and burden for today. 

"Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up." 
James 4:10

"The LORD sends poverty and wealth; He humbles and He exalts."
1 Samuel 2:7

"For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, 
and he who humbles himself will be exalted."
Luke 14:11

But He gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: 
"God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble."
James 4:6

"Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, 
that He may lift you up in due time."
1 Peter 5:6

This is the end of WFW and the beginning of GIVING THANKS Day 9
Lord, I am so thankful for ...

                       GIVING THANKS 2011

Once again this year, mine will be different, rather than doing a post or a list, I will have a different Song of THANKS every day [and 'one' or more extra (the 'one' is a different version and singer)].

I give thanks daily to God through and for MUSIC. I love the arts: music, art, poetry, dance, etc. and having not developed this part of me earlier in my life or in school, I enjoy every chance I can to express myself this way or learn more.

See my GIVING THANKS PAGE above for more details.

Lord, I give You thanks today for ...

#1. YOUR LOVE LETTERS to me (us), YOUR PROMISES in the BIBLE... all 365+  all 66 inspired books of the Bible: HIS WORD. (OK, now I gave you this one to start you out)

Clues to my thankfulness are found in these videos:
#2.  My WFW and Laura Story video (featured on Nov 2nd). 
#3. John Michael Talbot video (featured on Nov.  3rd)
#4. PRAYER video (featured Nov. 4th)
#5. Matt Maher video
#6. Don Moen (didn't count for a guess) General GIVING THANKS
#8. Maranatha Singers video

TODAY's feature:
#9. Jeff And Sheri Easter (another longer version with some background to the song)

... (and the list will go on and on throughout November...GIVING THANKS!)

When Nov. is over I will share the playlist where I have the collection of these songs over at my You Tube (YT) Channel and my responses here instead of just the video link. 

I have chosen for my GT to be interactive so now it's your turn. After viewing the You Tube video today, 

What do you think I'm thankful for today? 

Just leave your guess in the comments, #... I think it's....

What are you thankful for today?


  1. Love the collage...

    I haven't heard that song in a long time...my uncle used to sing it years ago...it expresses so beautifully the thanks we have for God's blessings and provision...

  2. Lovely inspirational and encouraging Bible verses for all of us, particularly in this season of the year. Two of my grandkids and I enjoyed picking out goodies for Samaritan's Purse and Angel tree yesterday and I have two more to enjoy that with later this week or next. It's a fun way of planting giving seeds in their heart. Thanks for a creative reminder. Have a blessed week, Peggy :)

  3. What a blessing to stop by here today. The collage made an impression upon my heart. As I read on I came across your list of verses. Wonderful! Thanks. ~

  4. That video is one of my favorites, Thank you Lord for your blessings on me. I have it on my YouTubeChannel and I think I used it in a post.

    I think your thankful for IM and Video. No, it probably the name of the person on the video you sent us.

  5. A great way to celebrate one of the things that I most thankful for, too. God's many blessings.

    You'd think He'd done more than enough when He gave us His Son to die for our sins. But no, He chooses to continue to lavish on us, good and great blessings each day.

    He is so good.

    "From his abundance we have all received one gracious blessing after another." (John 1:16, NLT)


  6. Peggy - I am thankful for friends like you whom I have "met" in the blogging world. I think it is wonderful that we are able to share the Gospel via the internet.

    Love the collage.


  7. AGAIN....I LEFT a comment and it didn't appear!!! ackkkkk...
    I'm thankful for second chances :)

  8. So.....as I said before it deleted...I'm thankful for God's timing...I've been running frantic trying to get this Kid's Beach Club off the ground at the public school and THIS WORD hit me this morning as I needed it today and not yesterday...

    Thankful, so very thankful for gals like you to spur me on miles away...
    love you lady


Bless you for your visit and encouraging words! I thank you and I am humbly blessed by YOU and the time you spend with me... Peace, "Mazmagi" Peggy
