ThankFULLness

ThankFULLness

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful- Colossians 3:15

Today and every day I am thankful. Today and every day I am blessed.

I am thankful for a Savior that would live to die for me.

I am thankful for my husband. For my family. And for my friends.

I am thankful for life, love and hope.

I am thankful that God is good, and He is sovereign.

That He is always faithful and ever near.

I am thankful that I have a home, a job, and a purpose. That I was fearfully and wonderfully made.

I am thankful that I am loved, cherished, adored and precious in His sight.

I am thankful for the constants of this life. That the sun, moon and stars always shine.

I am thankful that joy comes in the morning.

I am thankful for a world that was so intricately and intimately created by a Creator who wanted to see that “it was good”.

For a Creator that desires us. Is jealous for us. And seeks a relationship with us. Who wants to know us.

I am thankful that another year has passed with the ones I love.

I am thankful to grow older and forsake old childish ways.

I am thankful for daily reminders that we have not been forsaken, but that we have been sought after and bought at an immeasurable price.

I am thankful that for every time we say no, He says Yes.

I am thankful that grace abounds. And that it abounds much more.

I am thankful that the things I am thankful for, are not merely things- but are more importantly, the promises and blessings of God. Without which I would have nothing to be thankful for.

 

“Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare." Psalm 75:1
