Thankful for God

As I reflect on all those things I am so grateful for I realize it all comes down to one thing. I am grateful to God that He loves me. I am grateful that God is God. He is mighty and powerful, He created the Heavens and the Earth, the stars, the moon, oceans and every animal that swims there.

While all that is wonderful and amazing the thing that causes me to stop in my tracks and just raise my hands heavenward is that He loves me. ME! A sinful woman. A stubborn woman. A woman who so often chooses her own way. A woman who, had God not wooed her, would never have sought God out on her own. An yet - HE LOVES ME!

for your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth. Ps 26:3

Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me! Ps 66:20

For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me from the depths of the grave.Ps 86:13

When I said, "My foot is slipping," your love, O Lord, supported me. Ps 94:18

"As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. John 15:9

I will never grow tired of praising God for His love for me. Out of His love for me He has given me SO much. He has given eternal life, forgiveness, mercy, grace etc... And because of His great love my heart wants to be obedient, I want to follow hard after Him...I hunger and thirst for Him...

oh God how can the mere words thank you ever be enough. I fail so often to show my deep love for you. I allow my flesh, the lies of the enemy and so much more to get in the way. But you forgive, you draw my heart back...oh God how I love I long for heart cries out for your Spirit to fill me...
