Giving Thanks (for Jesus)

I'm thankful for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I am nothing without Him. He is my foundation, my strength, my hope, my reason for living. I don't deserve a second of His grace, love or mercy, and yet He gives it to me gladly.

I'm thankful for my freedom in Christ. The opportunity to express my devotion to God in public and private.

I'm thankful for my Bible. My guide in life. The promises it holds, from the lips of my Heavenly Father, to teach me, discipline me and encourage me.

I'm thankful for prayer, and the fact I can speak directly with Jesus. It astounds me that He finds me worthy to spend quality time with, whenever I call upon Him. What a gift to have direct access to Him. How amazing that He wants a personal relationship with me.

I'm stunned by His blessings, I'm glad for the lessons He teaches me, even through hardship, and I'm grateful for His forgiveness and invitation to dwell with Him for eternity.

Do You Know Him?
