"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness." Colossians 2:6-7
I am so thankful! God is so good! I thank God for my life. He has blessed me with more than just air in my lungs. He has blessed me with true life, and true life begins with Jesus. I thank God for salvation through Jesus. I thank God for a place and a purpose and value in His kingdom. I thank God for relationship, first with Him and second with others. I am so thankful for my wife and my children. I am blessed beyond measure with them! I thank God for my mom and my dad and my brothers. I thank God for my mother-in-law and father-in-law and sister-in-law. God has truly blessed me with a family who loves me and supports me. I am so thankful for my fellowship family, my brothers and sisters in Christ. I am thankful to God for the opportunities we have to worship together and to serve together in ministry. I am so thankful!
Psalm 107:1-2 says, "Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story - those he redeemed from the hand of the foe." God rescued me from the enemy, Satan. God redeemed me through the sacrificial blood of Jesus. I repented and believed in Jesus in my heart, and God forgave me of my sins and baptized me with the Holy Spirit. I am no longer my own; I belong to Him. I am a child of God. He has changed me forever, and for that I am so thankful! This is my Godmazing story about how I was lost and then found. I am so thankful! I pray that my story will always be the story of "Blessed Assurance," and may the words be repeated day after day in my life: "This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long!"
