37 Years of “BUT GOD” Outcomes to Celebrate This Thanksgiving… HalleluYAH!

Over the next 24 hours, I want to dedicate my praise and thanksgiving to the top 37 “BUT GOD” outcomes in my life. I challenge you to make your own “BUT GOD” thanksgiving list according to the years of your life. It may humble and amaze you when you really sit back to meditate on all of the significant challenges and circumstances The Father has delivered you from. It makes the small stuff fade into insignificance and even the big mountains will begin to look like mole hills!!!
