Praise Post #2

A happy Sunday to you all!

I woke up this morning with Sunday on my mind.  Today, I am going to give God praise for things that involve worship.

When I thought about it, I feel these 6 things belong together, so today has a bonus praise:

  1. I'm thankful to be born in a country that has religious freedom, a country so great that people all over the world plot and plan to come here! A country that allowed the establishment and growth of these 5 churches that influenced my life so greatly:
  2. Amelia Baptist Church:  where I spent my teen years, gave my life to Christ, and learned that church is really a great big family.  Over forty years later, I still remember every one of those saints and the contributions they made to my life.
  3. Trinity Assembly of God:  our home church, the church we married in, the church filled with relatives and love.  Our grandmothers were charter members there.  The last time I was at TAG, the one question was, "When are you coming home to stay?"
  4. First Assembly of God Church, Terre Haute:  The church where we received our healing from infertility! The first truly big church we ever attended, we learned important lessons there, one of which was standing on the Word.
  5. Cornerstone Church:  my calling and my heart.  I've given 18 years of my life to this church learning to do ministry in all its forms.
  6. Jonesboro First Baptist Church: where I work as a full-time ministry assistant.  I've made a family there.  They were instrumental in helping us during the flood and I will never forget their kindness and love.
And now you know why I call myself a bapticostal!

What things can you give God praise for today? Each day in November we are linking up and sharing 5 blessings.  30 days times 5 blessings equal 150 praises!

Now, it's your turn. Link up or if you don't have a blog, leave a comment and share.  (Subscribers, you will have to click through to my blog to see the links.)

Isn't it neat how each church we are part of we get something out of? Always great to have a place to worship God and a church family!
