Thank You


"I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart; I will tell of all Thy wonders. I will be glad and exult in Thee; I will sing praise to Thy name, O Most High."
Psalm 9: 1-2


Heavenly Father,

My heart overflows with thanksgiving. You are a faithful Father whose love and promises never fail. No matter where I go; no matter what my circumstances; no matter what my feelings tell me - You never leave me or forsake me. You meet my needs with abundant provision. You fill my life with purpose and blessing.

Thank You for the way You answer prayer in my life - with such love and perfect wisdom. You are a Holy and Righteous God, and all Your ways are just.

I am humbled when I see the way You take the time to patiently answer the questions of this doubting heart. With such tender mercy, You show me the way - over and over again - until I am on sure footing.

Thank You for a patient love that waits, for Your Holy Spirit who draws me, for the peace of Your presence, for freedom in Jesus, and grace that forgives the unforgivable.

Thank You for the immeasurable blessing of this weekend - for allowing me to be a tiny part of recording worship music that will minister to so many. Thank You for Dennis Jernigan's amazing testimony and for the gift You have given him. It was so wonderful Father.

Thank You for setting us free and for the priceless gift of salvation.

I have not words to adequately thank You. You are more wonderful than words can express.

In Jesus' Name,
Amen

  2. Oh Linda, it is so true how His amazing love and mercy make us know His heart toward us! And yet adequate words of gratitude do not come easily for me either. But, it was so beautiful to hear your heart so lovingly responding to His great gift of love toward us! I always love to stop by and be blessed by your gift displayed in your writing. :)
