I Give Thanks

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (I Thessalonians 5:28, NIV).
Lord, I am thankful for the moment you came into my life. Everything changed in that instant. I was no longer alone. I was no longer bound in the dregs of my past. In that instantin that moment, I knew I was loved no matter what I had done or been.Your love set me free to become what you knew I could be.
You always see my potential and carry me safely through circumstances that try to destroy me. Your Word tells me to give thanks in all circumstances because that is your will for me. Not that my circumstances are necessarily your will, because life happens. But your will is for me to give thanks always no matter what comes in my life. Praise should be constantly within me. It should always be my sacrifice of faith (Hebrews 13:15).
You walk with me everyday, but more incredibly and wonderfully you live inside me. It is your heart that lives in me, and it is your forgiveness that flows. I have none of my own. You make all the difference. You make my life complete, and for that I cannot give you enough thanks.

Today I give you all the praise and thanks I can. You are my life, and my God. I love you, Jesus, for loving me beyond measurebeyond anything my limited mind can imagine. You just are, and in your constant promise, I am fulfilled. I give thanks.
