Like You-I Am Thankful


Yahweh, you are my soul’s celebration. How could I ever forget the miracles of kindness
you’ve done for me?  You kissed my heart with forgiveness, in spite of all I’ve done. You’ve healed me inside and out from every disease. You’ve rescued me from hell and saved my life. You’ve crowned me with love and mercy.  You satisfy my every desire with good things. You’ve supercharged my life so that I soar again like a flying eagle in the sky! Psalm 103:2-5 Passion Translation

As we close out another week, I wanted to take some time just to celebrate the goodness of our God. Even in these last couple months of craziness, I’ve walked away with an awareness of how much worse it could have been if not for the hand of God. As the old song goes; “If it had not been for the Lord on my side, tell me where would I be? Where would I be?”

Sometimes when things don’t go according to plans, we tend to get bent out of shape and complain about it. But bottom line is, it could have been far worse. I’m tempted to whine at times, but God has been so good to me. His forgiveness alone is more than I deserved. But to heal me inside and out, rescue me from hell and crown me with love and mercy, that’s way over the top.

So satisfying to have relationship with Him. He watches over me, strengthens me and causes me to soar. I can’t help but praise Him. I can’t help but thank Him for all He’s done, all He’s doing and all He will do. My past may have shaken me, but my future is blessed because He loves me and I’m still standing.

Are you still standing? Did you come out of this alive? Do you still have your peace? If you’ve answered yes to any of those three questions, you have reason to be thankful. So when people try to take your peace, remind them of what God’s done for you!

Until Next Time
