30 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 24
I am thankful for the things I know...
1. I know that I am saved.
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13)
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9)
2. I know that I am saved eternally.
"Verily, verily, I say unto you. He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life." (John 5:24)
"And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand." (John 10: 28)
"These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of god: that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." (1 John 5:13)
3. I know the truth that stands forever.
"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (John 8:32)
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (John 14:6)
4. I know that their are no accidents with God.
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28)
5. I know that God is on my side.
"What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?" (Romans 8:31)
6. I know that the very instant I see Jesus, I will be like Him.
"Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that when he shall appear, we shall be like him: for we shall see him as he is." (1 John 3:2)

I began blogging several years ago in search of new friends who, like me, were having a difficult time getting pregnant. Five years, 2 miscarriages, 4 failed IUI's, and a doctor who told us "It will never happen" later, we are the proud parents of Kade and Kohen. They are each an example of God's absolute perfection. We thank God where medical intervention stops, Divine intervention begins.
