Lord I’m thankful for all that I have and all I can do. But most of all, I’m thankful to know You, Lord, in this life of ups and downs! Because this life without You is lonely.
Other people see our external lives, but no one, except You, sees our internal lives. You Know who I really am. You hear my every thought. You see my every action. Nobody else knows me the Way You Know me. You Know my innermost fears and desires. You Know how I feel at any given moment. I’m safe to be myself with You, Lord, because You Will Always Love me – even when I fail You. You Love me, and You Delight in me.
“The Lord Delights in those who fear (submit to) Him, who put their hope in His Unfailing Love.” Psalm 147:11
I’m connected to You, God, The Creator! That’s Awesome! You Are and You Are Omniscient, Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and yet, You Care about me personally. And You Love me.
I’m so grateful that I don’t have to go it alone. And You don’t want just to be there for me in a crisis. You want to share my whole life with me – to show me Miracles and Marvels all around me that I can’t see by myself. With You, I find Joy everywhere! Hope abounds in me in the face of even the most discouraging news. With You, I can accomplish things that far exceed the sum of my skills.
“God Loves me. It still humbles me that this Force that makes leaves and fleas & stars & rivers & you, Loves me. Me, Maya Angelou. It’s Amazing. I can do anything. And do it well. Any good thing I can do it. That’s why I am who I am, yes, because God Loves me & I’m amazed at it.” Maya Angelou
On this Thanksgiving, Lord, Thank You so much for Loving me.
