8/8/13 Sharing His Word with Thankful Thursday
As Christians we have so very many things to be thankful for and yet far too many of us go day after day without taking a single second to acknowledge the greatness God has placed within our figurative hands. For a long time, that is how I lived, I was thankful for everything I had in my possession and otherwise but I was in most cases, thankful to myself for obtaining or gaining said thing/s. I never consciously sat to list at length the items for which I was thankful but looking back, it would have been a small list with earthly things. Once Christ came into my life, I strived to grow in my personal relationship with him and the Bible became an extremely important ally, a best friend of sorts. His words put all aspects of my life into perspective, His promises (Joshua 1:1-9) are greater than any I could have requested, and even more, what I was thanking myself for all this time, I should have been thanking Him. I owe everything I was, am, and will be to God. For I can take none of the credit, nope not me, for He alone, provides, gives, and takes away, for I am nothing apart from Him (John 1:3, John 15:5). If the sun comes up, if the moon goes down, if I take a breath, a step, utter a word, His blessings are immeasurable, and I owe it all to God. I am so thankful for every second of the life He has granted me and I dedicate that life to Him that He may find me good in His sight.
Have a wonderful day and may God bless you. Amen.
