Father as I meditate on Your loving-kindness and goodness
Thanksgiving comes from my heart and is on my lips
Thank You for sending Your Son to bear my sins upon the cross
Because of Christ, my sin debt was marked “Paid in Full”
Thank You for the blood of Jesus Christ
Which cleansed me from all my sin
Thank You for the Gift of Promise
The Holy Spirit, my Guarantee of a future spent with You
Thank You for redeeming this wretched sinner
Taking my heart of stone and giving me a heart of flesh
Thank You for clothing me
In the righteousness of Christ
Thank You for Your life giving Word
Like a river of life for my thirsty soul
Thank You for Your transforming power
Empowering and enabling me to walk victoriously over sin
Thank You for the promise of heaven
An eternity spent with You…the Lover of my soul

Joining you in giving thanks & praise to our Lord. There is just so much to be thankful.
Hi Susan,Thank you for visiting my blog and telling me about a sermon on 1 Thess. 5:18 from your church. I went and listened to it and was much blessed. A few years back when I was grieving my first wife's death I kept asking God, "I know I am suppose to be thankful in all things, but how can I be thankful in this?" I came to a deeper understanding, yet never could fully wrap my head around it. Maybe I still don't fully wrap my head around it, but what your pastor spoke sure did bring a much deeper understanding. When he spoke about "if God gave us what we deserved," that sure did hit the nail right on the head. Even in this, things could be a whole lot worse. Actually I should have died 3 times before I was saved or had met my first wife. We both got saved after we were married.Well anyway, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated you sharing this with me.God bless,Ken
