Day 1: 30 Days of Giving Thanks

Last year, during the month of November, I started the “30 Days of Giving Thanks.” It was such a success, and I had so many people come to me about the campaign, that I decided I needed to do it again this year. I will do my best not to repeat myself too much when it comes to what I am thankful for, but I can’t make any promises. 🙂

I hope you will join me in giving thanks this month by leaving a link below to your own thankfulness post.

Day 1: Today, I am giving thanks for my salvation.

30 Days of Giving ThanksI was born and raised in a Christian home. Christ was the center of my home, but, unfortunately, I never really “got it.” I lived a lie for many years, telling people exactly what I knew they wanted to hear, and I played the role of a good Christian girl at church, school, and around people that knew I was supposed to be a Christian. Yet I had never given my heart to Christ.

After I had kids, I continued to bring them up in church, because I knew it was what I was “supposed” to do. I even went so far as to dedicate each of my children to the Lord. Everyone (my husband included) just figured I was saved. After all, I acted like it.

In April of 2008, just a few months before I turned 30, and while I was pregnant with my 5th child, I came under real conviction. One Sunday night, I was sitting in the back of the auditorium, crying my eyes out, just wishing the preacher would start the invitation. I knew I needed to be saved.

That night, I accepted Christ as my Savior, and WOW! What a change it has made. My life is no longer lived in vain. I have a purpose, and am determined to be the wife, mother, and woman God wants me to be.

I am thankful that He never gave up on me, and that I can have the free gift of salvation. What a difference it has made in my life.

What are you thankful for today?
