I have so much to be thankful for....do you?
I woke up this morning.
I am drinking my second cup of coffee.
running hot water and soap...
a car to drive...
and a job to go to shortly.
I am wealthy beyond measure with just these.
Thank YOU, Father, for Your abounding goodness toward Your children...us!
We have much to bring before You, Father.
We are holding hurtful situations...
feelings...anxious thoughts..."what ifs"...and "should haves".
Father, these are all too burdensome for us. We are weak.
So, You say we can hand these over to Jesus. We can...will we?
We won't simply lay our wrong thinking and our hurt feelings and our painful bodies and broken minds at the foot of the cross. We will offer all the broken pieces right into Your wounded, nail-pierced hands.
and He Himself (Christ) bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. I Peter 2:24 nasb
With gratitude, Jesus, we recognize and testify; You went to the cross to bear the rebellion, brokenness and sin within Yourself as the spotless, sacrificial Lamb of God.
You, God, are good and trustworthy. You are faithful and You know what You are doing.
So we trust all to You…
and watch expectantly…
on tiptoes to see Your Glory!
