One Thousand Gifts – Thanks from a Grateful Heart – July 1, 2012

As I start my day, on the Lord’s day here are a few things that I am grateful for:
4.      I live in a nation where I am free to go to church and worship
5.    Free to own and read my Bible
6.    Have the education and ability to read
7.    For the Holy Spirit who enables me to understand Gods word.
8.    For a church and pastors who are faithful to preach the full counsel of God’s word with authority.

One Thousand Gifts – Thanks from a Grateful Heart

I want to foster a grateful heart and remember the Lord’s many benefits and gifts to me each day.  Starting today, I’m going to join Ann Voskamp’s One Thousand Gifts and start counting. 
103 Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
3 Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
4 Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s
Psalm 103: 1-5
Let the counting begin. 
1.      I am so grateful for my security and salvation found in Christ alone.
2.    I’m thankful for the gift of prayer and that I can cry out to the Lord anytime, night or day. 
3.    The Lord is never too busy to hear me.
