Bobba Schmidt, 45, California, USA…

"I am thankful to God for converting me and for His patience with my continuous straying and complaining, yet He has never given up, and I find that my faith continues to increase. …I also thank Him for giving me two really special children who are both autistic. I love them so very much, because they are His children also. I also thank God for knowing what is best for me even though my patience is not always great. I also thank Him for leading me to the right church… Praise the Lord for He is always good!!!"


Mrs. Roberts, Ohio, USA…

“I am thankful to our AWESOME GOD for sparing my husband, his child, on November 04, l999. I truly believe he has destined wonderful plans for him on this earth working with God and His Son in his life. He fell off a 35 ft building on that day and only had a 20% chance of survival. He was attached to so many tubes and equipment that I will never forget what one of the nurses said is that she never in a long time has seen a person hooked up to so many things. But my Sovereign God you saved him and Us. Since then we (him, myself and our two daughters) have turned our lives our to Him. I am thankful God that you did not give up on us all. Hebrews 13:5 ‘He will not leave us or forsake us’.”


Justin, 15, Texas, USA…

“I thank God most of all for giving His only son’s life so that I, a sinner in His sight could be saved through his sacrifice. I also thank everyday just for being with me every step of my life! I can count on Him for strength in every situation and every temptation Satan throws at me. Thank God, my wonderful father and dearest friend!!”


Noble Callaway, IV, 35, Delaware, USA…

“I thank God for walking me through many trials in my life, only to grow closer to him—from a terrible divorce and extreme financial trouble—and then to a wonderful new marriage and deliverance from that financial burden. God is still doing a work. But he has taught me that I need him everyday, even on days where everything is going well… God is Good!!!! All the TIme!!!!”


Jennifer, 27, Texas, USA…

“That when I fell down and went the wrong way in life that God sent people to pray and help me get my life together. I am very thankful that God sent me friends that are concerned and love me just like I am, faults and all. I am thankful that I have a wonderful Christian counselor that does not charge me when I go see her. God takes care of His sheep, when one is lost He will search for the lost one.”


Hoy Miller, 60, Maryland, USA…

“I thank God for revealing Himself to me, that I may know that He is real. And that I might realize that that He is holy and that I was a sinner needing to be saved. I thank him for so many things, but most of all for His love and salvation.”


Mary Hagenston, 44, California, USA…

:Thank you, Father, for drawing me out of the kingdom of darkness and into the Kingdom of Light through Your Holy Spirit! You have made me Yours forever!"


Laralea McLaughlin, California, USA…

“For the salvation of my nephew by marriage. We had been praying for him for almost 17 years. He was very jaded, due to seeing all the nasty sides of life as a Deputy Sheriff. He came to us and told us he needed God in his life—he couldn’t handle it without him. The joy we experienced 2 weeks ago when we witnessed his baptism in a lake with his wife and son by his side was one of the biggest blessing of joy I have experienced in a long, long time.”


Darlene Castay, 50…

Amy, 21, Tennessee, USA…

"Hi Abba, It’s me again, coming with a humbled heart to offer praises in your name. For you have rescued me from myself and brought me into the kingdom of light to live with your son who not only died for me, but was raised three days later and now sits are your right hand. Oh God, How I am thankful for your love…. because out of that love you gave me grace that is sufficient for all my sins and by you choosing me; I do not live in condemnation, but sanctified by your blood. You continue to make yourself new to me everyday, with Joy in my heart I want to die to myself and live for you, no matter what this world throws at me. Thank you for the blessings you give that I never deserved, for the protection your hand provides, and for the forgiveness you offer day after day. I love you and I long to see you face to face, but until that glorious day, walk with me and hold my hand until I can come home… Thank you God for the victory through Jesus…"


M. Jarnagin, 56, Arizona, USA…

"Thank you Lord for…
…letting me wake up this very morn,
…watching over me since the day that I was born.
…listening when I thought no one was there,
…keeping me in your tender loving care.
…helping me when my life was filled with woe,
…sheltering me when I had no place to go.
…helping me with problems big and small,
…loving me, for I love you most of all."


Mandy, 34, Washington, USA…

“I have to give thanks to you my God with every breath I take. Nothing that I have or could have done in my life is worthy of the love and mercy that You show me, my awesome Redeemer. How great a salvation! Your love is as deep as the ocean and wider than the universe. Thank you Abba Father. Thank you for raising me out of the mire and placing my feet on the firm foundation of Jesus Christ!”


Tanya, Kansas, USA…

“My thanks to God are because he is so merciful and so forgiving. We are so unworthy of all the blessings we receive. But he is so wonderful and continues to love us far beyond belief. I love you my Lord, and thank you for loving me.”


Cristal, 32, Texas, USA…

“I am forever thankful to my GOD for never giving up on me and for inspiring me through my children. I have sinned often times turning my back on GOD. I have felt HIS absence only to realize it is I who was absent not GOD. My life is richer having realized that for all the tribulations in my life the miracles far out numbered them. Life is a gift and sometimes in this world when we are at our lowest we look upon it as a curse. Without God… living is the hardest thing in the world to do. Priorities tend to shift to what is important in a material sense rather than the spiritual since. I need God in my life and I thank him for remaining with me while I tested his words. I hear your ‘I told you so,Jesus.’ Praise the Lord.”


Ashley Spivey, 12, North Carolina, USA…

“Thank you God for all that has been done and for my family. I also thank god for taking care of my father and for taking care of me when I am sick.”


Karin, 43, Minnesota, USA…

“I’m so thankful that my 80-year dad got leukemia, because through it he has placed his faith in Christ. Though he has always been a “good” person and a great dad, he has been changed by the power of God. God can, in all things, work for the good of those who love him!”


M. J.

“I thank God every day for a second chance; each new day that I live God is giving me a new opportunity to be a blessing in the life of one of His children. I thank Him for my trials and tribulations for they draw me closer to Him. I thank Him for helping me to weather all the storms in my life. I thank Him that my good times outweigh my bad times; I thank Him for my family; I thank Him that my son is healthy and well; I thank Him for so many things. I could never thank Him enough for ALL that He has done, is doing and, going to do. I thank you God for my life!”


Amber, 17, North Carolina, USA…

“I thank God for saving me from the life I was living—from all the ways that I was hurting myself without Him. He gave me a family and friends who love me, and I can depend on. He has allowed me to live a life for others instead of the selfish life I had chosen.”


Robin, Louisiana, USA…

“Thanks to God for sending His Son, Jesus Christ, who died at Calvary, shed His blood and rose again from the grave so that my family and I might be saved by His mercy and grace. For His Word that guides us daily. For allowing me to be born in America. For the blood of Jesus that keeps me and my family safe. For loving me unconditionally.”


Nancy S. Henson, 41, Texas, USA…

“That He is with me, even in the thick of the battle, and that all I need to do is to lift my head and know that He is in control. He is my salvation and my fortress!”

“I am thankful that I am saved. I am very thankful for my wonderful wife and 3 year old son that the Lord has given me. I am thankful for the lord calling me to preach His word. I am thankful to be able to walk, see, speak, hear, taste, smell and breathe. The lord has been to good to me.”

I thank you Lord for every day that you see fit for me to serve you. I thank you God for the gift of salvation and for teaching me the humility to accept it. I thank you for Jesus and the precious sacrifice he made for everyone. Praise be to God in the Highest.”


Daisy, 22, Mississippi, USA…

“I am thankful to God for saving me. He is my sole provider. I love him with all my heart and soul. Never will a rock cry out in my space, Jesus is worthy of all my praise. I love and adore the Lord because his mercy endures and his grace is everlasting. I thank God for his son Jesus if it weren’t for him where would we be? I love the lord.”

Tambra L. Van Dyke, USA…

“I was in prison, and you came to visit me. Thank you Jesus for sending women to share your love with me. Now I’m going to the jails to give back what was given to me.”


Bob, USA…

“I thank God that I am not what I used to be, and not what I someday will be!”


David D. Davis, USA…

“I thank God for the incredible beauty and variety in nature, for creating man in his image, for setting our hearts on eternity, for making provision for covering our sin, cleansing our consciences, and taking upon himself the just penalty of our iniquity--thereby reconciling us into fellowship with himself, the creator and sustainer of the vast and incredible universe. I thank God for his Word, the Bible, and I thank God for promises and provision for us. I thank God for the privilege of prayer and his indwelling Holy Spirit. I thank God for all the Christians, those people that have been cut to the heart in response to the indescribable selfless act in love of God in flesh, Jesus Christ, dying for us yet while we were still sinners. I thank God that the power and the wisdom of God is the “foolishness” (to the self condemned) of the cross.”

“I am thankful that God thought enough of me to die for me. I am thankful that He has given me health, a wife (and expecting baby), family, food, shelter and a Bible grounded church. I am thankful that He has allowed me to live in a country where I can freely worship Him. I am thankful that I have Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and that I will one day live forever with Him.”


Pat Ritter, USA…

“God has been good to me. You can always look back & see that God has been there with you all the time through all kinds of trial. He has promised to never leave us or forsake us and He hasn’t. We have so much to be thankful for - it only takes one day of being sick to realize what a blessing health is. We have so many things, it makes us not zero in on the little things that are the most important. Husbands, wives, children, parents, house to live in - free country to worship the Lord. We loved you Lord & thank you for your many many blessings of family and friends.”


Dale Adams, USA…

“Lord, I thank you for withholding your wrath from our nation as we sinned beyond the imagination of many nations of the past who were struck down by your mighty hand. You are truly a God of great mercy to allow us to have backslidden so far without sending us all straight to the pit. I pray that you will continue to strengthen our resolve to learn to love and be merciful as you taught us through your Son, Jesus Christ. AMEN.”


Bernie Diaz, USA…

“I praise and thank God almighty for my gift of salvation in Christ Jesus, for my health, my family, in particular my two toddlers with another on the way.

Praise be unto the Lord!”


Gary Hoffman, USA…

“I want to thank God for restoring my family and for the opportunities He has given me to serve Him over the past couple years in Missions. Also for my two sponsored children, (Marie and Mondy) in Haiti. I will be visiting them again in February, thanks to God. It is great to serve Him and I encourage all to get involved with something to serve Him. I found out you don’t need any special talents you just need to be obedient.”


Keith R. Allen, USA…

“I am a first generation Christian family man. Where can I start? First of all I give praise to His Holy Name. I thank God for being The God of all. He chose me when I was yet on my mothers’ womb. That is always something that amazes and humble me. He always prepares the way before me, and I marvel to watch His Hand at work in my life. He has allowed me to see my family come to Him. How blessed is He! My cup trully does runneth over. In His Son I give my humble thanks.”


Barb Kineke, USA…

“In this day of school violence, kids killing kids, people killing people instead of working it out, I am thankful that so far this has not touched my family directly. But I am also very thankful that if it ever did, that God would give the grace and strength to make it through such a time. I am thankful that in a world of uncertainty, there is one steady rock that never changes, and that is Jesus Christ. He was the same yesterday, is the same today and will be the same tomorrow. He always loves and holds us firm in a changing world, that is scarier every day to live in. I praise God that I don’t have to wonder or worry what will happen tomorrow, because I have Jesus in my heart and life and He will do what is best for me in every situation, whether I think so or not. Praise God for who He is and what He has done for me.”


Lori J. Ray, USA…

“I am so very thankful that in the midst of heartache and sorrow (my husband left me in ‘98, and we divorced in Sept. ‘99), Jesus has been there comforting me, strengthening me and guiding me. I am especially grateful for the way He has administered His love & Compassion for me through my friends, my family and even through my ex-in-laws. I thank Him for reviving & resurrecting hope within me, and I also thank Him for everything else good in my life, whether big or small. I am thankful for my health, my job, my cats, and new opportunities to serve Him.”


Lindsey R. Blevins, 46, Texas, USA…

"I am so very thankful that there are still those that look to God for their salvation, here in time, and eternally. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men where we must be saved (delivered) (Acts 4:12). Whether it be in sickness,or distress the Lord is our refuge, thank thee the Lord, and glorious is his Holy name.


Connie, 16, USA…

“God gave me everyone I love and everything I couldn’t live without.”


George Shelton, USA…

“I am thankful for all of God’s Love and Mercy, for Jesus my Savior, for the Holy Spirit who teaches me. I’m thankful for the life and breath that is within me, for my two fine sons. I am thankfull for so many, many things that God has given me and blessed me. I am thankful for this Web site that I just recently found. I, of course, have done nothing to deserve God’s Love. I am so thankful God loves me anyway.”
