Leaving a Legacy Ministries with Codi Gandee

Using the Word to Encourage Others



I’m Thankful

I’m thankful for a God that designed this blessed life that I’m living. A life in which I am able to discuss matters of the Truth with a husband that loves, provides and leads his family. I’m thankful that together we teach our three healthy, precious children about Jesus. I pray that we will walk together for an eternity with Jesus.

I’m thankful for a savior that denied himself an eternity spent in heaven so that he could come to earth to offer himself as the perfect sacrifice for my sin. I pray that I am found faithful and blameless before Him.

I’m thankful for the Holy Spirit that lives within me. Correcting me. Guiding me. Encouraging me. Speaking peace to my soul. I pray that I am more sensitive to his leadings.

I’m thankful for The Lord calling me to be about His will. For Him giving me work to do. I pray that he is able to use the work for His glory.

But mostly I am thankful that I am His and He is mine.

Part Of The Plan

I Thessalonians 5:18

Five thousand men were saved! Thank The Lord! Peter had been faithful to preach the Gospel. Thank the lord! People were praising God. Thank The Lord! A healing had taken place! Thank The Lord! A man was crippled from birth. Thank The Lord!?!

The crippled man had been in that condition since birth. Everyone knew him as the man that sat at the Temple and begged for money. Peter, through Jesus’ name healed him. The man stood up, ran, jumped around and praised God. People noticed. They remembered the terrible condition this man had once been in. They were curious as to how he was moving around with no problem and why he was praising God. Peter gave them answers. He preached Jesus. Five thousand men were saved.

The man had to be crippled or there wouldn’t have been a need for a healing, which then led to the praising of God, preaching of Jesus and ultimately the redemption of five thousand mens’ souls. Thank The Lord for the crippled man!

It’s unnatural for us to praise God for situations or circumstances that we don’t understand. But we should be found worshipping The Lord in spirit and truth, not in our flesh. We need to trust that He has our best interest in mind and that it will all work for His glory.

We may not be able to comprehend what’s going on but we can know that Jesus is in control. For that we can be thankful.
