Thankful Thursday- praise


Today’s theme for Thankful Thursday is praise. It is almost like Iris at Grace Alone knew what was on my mind. God is so good!
I am thankful for a patient God. I can’t even count how many times in one week, let alone a lifetime, that I mess up. And they are not new sins or new issues. No, I continue to do the things I know I shouldn’t, the things I have been convicted I need to change. Yet, God doesn’t lose interest in me. His heart doesn’t change, just my fickle mind and emotions. I am so thankful that we serve a God that is the same yesterday, today and forever. I need that stability in my life!
Romans 12 encourages us to live our lives as a living sacrafice. I think there is no greater act of praise than living every day, every moment for the glory of the One who never gives up on us, who always has His arms open to comfort, His Spirit ready to remind us of the right path and discipline us when we veer off course, who has the greater good in mind when deciding what trials and challenges we face, who promises to never leave us or forsake us. I give everlasting praise during the good times and the bad. I praise the Lord for every circumstance, every opportunity and every day I have on this earth and the promise of eternal life with Him when all this shall pass.
I am thankful for this awesome God we serve and that so many years ago He thought enough of me (and you, and you, and you…) to send His only son to a cave in Bethlehem.
Merry Christmas, folks!
