To know that I belong to Jesus Christ.
To know that God chose me before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight.
To know that I am adopted into His family and nothing or no one can take me away from Him.
To know that I am redeemed from my sin and rescued from hell.
To know that Jesus took my sin and gave me His righteousness. I am a new creation. His Spirit lives in me.
To know He has forgiven every sin I ever have and ever will commit.
To know I am loved. I am loved exactly as I am. He knows everything about me, every thought, every motive, and every secret thing and yet He still loves me and always will.
If only I had the words to express thanks for a love like that. All that alone would be overwhelming blessing.
But along with such spiritual blessings, God has blessed me with:
An amazing husband who loves me and supports me even when I am not very lovable.
A wonderful son who has grown into a man I am proud of and who is not afraid to tell me how much he loves me.
Family members I love and who love me. Whom I can count on. Who would be there for me any time I need it
Phenomenal friends, who love me, care about me, pray for me, inspire me and support me. Friends who believe the best about me. And God keeps adding to them!
A church that I am so excited to be a part of! A church where the truth is taught, where we are encouraged to give to and serve others, a church where I can worship God in unity with others.
A job that helps provide yet gives me freedom to do things I need to do. A job with variety that allows me to be a part of the lives of children and young people.
God’s Holy Word! His word that plants truth into my heart and mind. His word that gives comfort, encouragement, correction, conviction when needed, wisdom, strength and power to resist the enemy. His word is an incredible gift. A priceless gift.
Prayer! Another priceless gift. To be able to talk to the Creator of the universe! To be able to come to a Holy, Perfect, All-powerful God and talk to Him without an appointment, anytime, anywhere! Wow! That is unbelievable! He is unbelievable! I love Him so much!
Father, Thank you for your unspeakable gifts! I am blessed beyond measure. I really feel speechless when I truly think about what you have done for me and what you have given me. Every. Single. Thing. In my life and about me is a gift from you. Grace. Thank you for your amazing grace. If only I had the words. Please look into my heart and know how grateful I am. I love you Father.
