What We’re Thankful For


What we’re thankful for.  While most everyone we’ll be seeing and visiting over the next few weeks will be talking about “being thankful for family… thankful for the turkey meal… thankful we live in America…” and then go and watch the Thanksgiving football games, what are we thankful for?  Thankful for truth.  Thankful we go to a church that actually tells people they have to lay down sin to go to heaven and not skirt around the issue.  Thankful that it’s not just us going down this path either but that we have other brothers and sisters doing the same thing.  Thankful we know what in the world this whole “Thanksgiving Day” is about.

We are very thankful.  And it’s a real true deep down appreciation to God.  It’s like the song “Count Your Blessings”…  We’re alive.  We have health (hopefully).  We have a church blessed by God.  We have a country that allows us to worship freely. We have technology that we can get to truth 24/7.  We have jobs (again, hopefully).  We have spiritual family that will help us if we stray and who care about our souls.  We have leaders that spend their days and nights counseling and directing.  We have revolutionary sermons and info that has come from Gwen Shamblin.  We have hope for the first time that our kids are not gonna grow up worse off spiritually than us.  We have the coolest church around which has streaming TV shows to our phones every Thursday at lunch.  We have webcasts. We have festivals. ect…. ect… ect…

The list goes on and on and on…  Post on this article what you’re thankful for Remnant and let the world know.

I am so thankful that God gave me a chance to die to my old life of sin and live for him.I am thankful that I have found this wonderful church family and leadership to direct me in the right direction. So thankful to pass this down to my children and grandchildren. I want to thank God for the Peace and Joy abounding in my heart, (which is the first thing I noticed about the people I met when visiting for the first time). This Peace was my heart's desire and I am forever thankful to God for allowing me to find it!

I am thankful for all the prayers for the exiles to find their way home; without them, we wouldn't be here today. So grateful to God to give us ears to hear and eyes to see this Truth! We are so blessed to be unified with brothers and sisters around the world who daily rise to do the will of God, what a beautiful family! I praise God for Gwen, her family, all the Leaders and all the Saints who heard the call and who are walking ahead of us on the narrow road that leads to life, in the footsteps of Jesus Christ. I am eternally grateful for all of you!

To say I am thankful for what i have learned from Gwen Shamblin and getting to be a part of the Remnant Fellowship Church is an understatement!!! The HIggins family has been over the top blessed when we have put into practice what is being taught and we will never be able to say thank you enough! To Gwen and all the Church leaders and members who are constantly raising the bar to go farther in this walk, we are THANKFUL for YOU!!

Words don't express how thankful I am for this message. I have grown up questioning everything, always wondering why there appeared to be few answers. Through this message of mere Christianity, all of life's questions have been answered, more and more everyday. I have been set free from dieting, many forms of control, depression, and now after last night, politics!

I am filled with praise and thanks! Thanks to GOD for mercy and Love, for a Spiritual family, for an immediate family who also loves God, for being able to live here in TN surrounded by the Saints, for ears that can hear and comprehend the Truth, for a Church devoted to God, for patient and caring Leaders, for a job, for a house, for life.... The list could go on forever!!! I know that all things are from God and happen through God and I thank Him for His protection and peace!

Natalie age 6: I'm thankful for God the most because he takes care of us the most and loves us the most and we love him the most.

Teagan age 4: I'm thankful for our church because I love HIS church. It is so beautiful.

As their Mom I am thankful to God, Gwen, His church, the leaders, and the saints that shared with me scripture out of the Bible. Then, they shared with me how to apply that scripture to my life, and how to pass down to my children. As a mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend I was struggling!!! This truth of obedience to the one true God has given me a relationship with HIM that I never knew was possible. I get to ask Him what he wants, I get answered prayers, and I get corrected when I do it wrong. If that isn't love I don't know what is! Now Praise God I get to share this with these babies who are thankful for the same things I am thankful for, God and our church!

I'm so Thankful that I was allowed to find the truth of Jesus Christ through this message and to have the answer/s to pass down and help the next generation and those seeking to truly live for God!!! To be apart of a body of people who are standing firm in true worship of God through obedience!

So thankful to have heard a voice telling me we must be different and how to do that! So thankful that when I heard, I did not give up easily, hear the rest of the world telling me that I did not have to obey God, or give in to the deep rooted selfishness that the world tells us we are entitled to. So thankful for every little blessing, to be alive another day and to have a God-given family of believers that encourages me to keep going! To live each day seeking only to please God, He is EVERYTHING!

Thanksgiving has always been one of my MOST favorite days & this year undoubtedly will be the BEST~

The thanksgiving in my heart TODAY is deeper, likened to GOLD thats been purified in the hot & firey flames...For this year I have finally learned (Thanks be to GOD and to you all ) HOW TO DIE to my foolish, short sighted desires...The NEW LIFE & LOVE in my heart is reflected in every JOYFUL step, each praise I utter, each battle I OVERCOME by this NEW & LIVING WAY~ I can wholeheartedly sing "I was BLIND but NOW I see, I was LOST but NOW I am FOUND!!!" Halleluia, I am FOUND!* And my heart is HOME* I am seeing "as if " for the very first time, through the eyes of CHRIST not my short sighted carnal tunnel vison, once so trapped in "ME"...The circumstances of my life change daily, but my heart is FREE from WORRY because I have learned from this life changing ministry HOW TO DO THE WILL OF GOD and TRUST the OUTCOME to GOD, who will use every opportunity to train & mold us to HIS GLORY & PRAISE~I am learning to be a trusted servant to all & in that servanthood I am learning the greatest joy & peace I have ever known~PRAISE TO GOD FOREVER & EVER & EVER for HIS goodness & kindness to mankind~Love you all

I am so thankful for a path to Him, so clearly defined, a healthy fear, a knowledge of His existence and knowing of His wants and desires for us...and these things have been made apparent through Christ's life and God's words and Gwen's understanding and teaching of those words. For these things, I am most thankful.

On top of that, God has blessed us, my family, with so many extras....true family... related and not, jobs, cars, food, clothing, the blessings are truly endless and my ability to list them all is impossible....I pray that God sees my heart and my actions and is pleased.

Our lives have never been so blessed as it is now that we have found out what pleases God and how do it! Having leaders who teach by not only powerful words, but powerful example is such a blessing! There is nothing like fellowship with true believers!!! My life is so happy and blessed! Through this ministry that turns us to the WORD of GOD, I have found the secrets to success in this life as well as the path to Heaven!!! No matter what difficulty comes my way, I know that I have God!! He is truly all I need!!!! I am overwhelmed with JOY!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you God for PEACE!!! Thank you for this FELLOWSHIP of BELIEVERS!!!!! I love God's people!!!! I want to shout it to the whole world!!!!!

I am so very thankful that God saw fit to pull me out of mainstream christianity and brought me to this message of truth! My life has been forever changed because of this message and the people who have taught me the truth and loved me enough to share the truth with me! Because of this true message I now know that I am lucky to be alive and I am blessed to get to serve the one true God every single day whether I am at home or at work or whatever I am doing. To finally learn that life isn't about me, to be released from the wrong thinking that the world feeds, to finally learn that I can do better and that God expects more of me! I finally know true freedom and the true freedom that I enjoy comes from knowing the truth. The truth does indeed set us FREE!

I'm so thankful to support the Weigh Down Ministries and Remnant Fellowship. I'm so thankful for the Rising Above The Magnetic Pull of The Refigerator, and that the truth set me free to believe that God is really everything. I'm so thankful that my husband was willing to experiment with relocating his family to Nashville to attend Remnant Fellowship and better provide for our well being.I'm so thankful for The Legend to the Treasure and music that give me the "how to" be thankful. I didn't know how to be thankful prior to being aquainted with Weigh Down Ministries and now that i do, it has become one of my favorite parts of the day. I'm so thankful for Kitty Jackson who leads us Temple Cleaners assigned to Men's Room Upper Level. I'm so thankful for Jan Voorhis and Sandy Sheridan who lead, care, & direct Temple Cleaners. I'm deeply grateful to Jessica Walter's and to Erin Shamblin for emailing me the "Essense of God" and for inviting me to webcast in July of 2004. I'm thankful to the individual who printed the Gunger's name on "Exiles Who Returned". I owe a debt of gratitude to the Anger's, Ancona's, Michael Shamblin Family, Brandon Hannah Family and Gwen Shamblin for laying down their lives for the sake of Christ, giving up their will for God's will, taking a chance on me and loving me and my family more than they love themselves.

Thankful for the Truth that pours out of this amazing church. Without my life would be miserable. Instead, by the grace of God, I have listened to what was said and applied it daily even when it hurt. Now I have countless blessings that I am thankful for on this thanksgiving and everyday. Obedience to God brings the blessings you didnt even know to ask for!!!!!

I am thankful that I was taught in Weigh Down classes and Remnant Fellowship Church that ALL my frustrations, pain, and anger could be eliminated... thankful that God made us with hearts that can transfer our love away from things that can't love us back and ONTO Him, the only source of the love that we are all so hungry for.  Making that transfer has released me from a life that was an up-hill battle. Instead I am sooo thankful to love God, the most beautiful One who loves back and makes each day a joy!!

I Praise God for the chance to get to hear the truth and to get a chance to live it everyday!!! I am grateful for our leadership and for Gwen for their examples of how to live only for God and that we can be perfect as God has commanded us. I am grateful to have found this truth this year and to get to hear it everyday. I am most grateful that God has forgiven me of my sins and allowed His Son Jesus Christ to die for me so that I can follow Jesus footsteps and obey God everyday!

I am so very, very, very grateful for the technology .... that you allow us to connect through your Spirit and through your technology anywhere in the world. Thank you, Father, for Remnant Fellowship. I praise you through Christ Jesus. LoVe you! Joey

I'm thankful that Gwen Shamblin introduced me and my family to the TRUE Jesus Christ who lived a wholehearted life connected to His Father by loving Him, seeking His good pleasure by finding and doing HIS WILL and laying down sin. Remnant Fellowship is THE REAL DEAL and I could shout from the rooftops how much it takes my breath away THAT I FOUND THIS MESSAGE & THIS PLACE where TRUTH from the HEAVENS is PREACHED and TAUGHT every Sabbath, Wednesday, Thursday...Every time I connect live, on the web, on TRUTHSTREAM, with other Saints...even SINGING this astonishing MUSIC in the car on my way to work, or walking the Dog...GOD'S WILL IS BEING DONE through this place...ON EARTH JUST AS IT IS IN HEAVEN... MY LIFE--forever changed--full of such HEALING and JOY--learning every day to fight the battle of the ages better and more wholeheartedly for God. This gives me SUCH HOPE for our daughter and future generations of our children who we pray will build on this SOLID FOUNDATION of the TRUE JESUS CHRIST. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!

I am so thankful for lasting change, for hope, for the path to real peace with God, for leaders who care, share, and live out a life devoted to God, for encouraging music, for beautiful ceremonies, for children (and direction on how to raise them up with joy and purpose), for the opportunity to change every day and grow closer to God, for Weigh Down and Gwen Shamblin, who brought me hope when I was truly hopeless, and poured out her life and time in giving us class after class to find the narrow path, for an amazingly beautiful temple devoted to God and festivals that center our lives around His calendar.... and the list goes on!
