"We thank God continually because, when you received the Word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the Word of God, which is at work in you who believe." - 1 Thessalonians 2:13

Dear Jesus, you have sent so many people into my life to teach me your thoughts.  When I let my mind drift back to my childhood, I think of all the Sunday School and Vacation Bible School teachers - they were all volunteers sent by you to teach my soul about who you are and how much you love me.  I think of the faithful pastors, teachers in my schools, my parents and many friends who spoke up and out to me when I needed it the most.  Help me always to regard the messages you send through others as your very words.  And give me a desire to heed them and make them my anchor and guide.  I would have never found you without these faithful missionaries for my soul.  AMEN

"Thankfulness is the fruit of faith, dropping from a tree well watered by the Master Gardener."
