A 21-day Thanks-Fest (Day 8)

 

Thank You Father God

 

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

(Romans 5:8 NKJV)

Good morning Father God,

Today, I’d like to thank you for your everlasting, extravagant and unconditional love for me. It takes my breath away.

I cannot understand why you should love me the way that you do, or how you can love the entire world and demonstrate that love by sending your Son, Jesus, to die for us, to die for me.

It is particularly amazing to me because not everyone in the world is lovable… and there are those in the world that do not care two hoots about you and your love. In fact, they scoff about the very idea of there being a God!

So why do you love us soooo much? I cannot even begin to fully comprehend this but I can tell you that I am grateful, so grateful.

And much like your unfailing mercies, your unconditional love for me, your beautiful brand of love for the entire world, challenges me because you say that I should emulate you.

I try.

And the more I try to love the unlovable, the more I seek to put into practice your command to love but fail at doing so, or baulk at loving those who reject me, then the more my eyes are opened, the more my heart understands and appreciates just how precious, how wonderful, how wide and deep your unconditional love is.

I thank you Father God.

Love,

Carol ♥

  1. Today I am thankful for knowing my authentic voice. I’m realizing how many people don’t truly know who they are and because of that they get caught in some situations that hurt. I’m thankful that I know WHOSE I am and WHO I am. I’m thankful that God created me to be me and to walk boldly in that confidence and walk out a specific purpose. Thank you Jesus!!

    1. Amen! You are such a different woman to the person that responded to one of my blog posts about 3 years ago. It’s encouraging to me that I too can come fully into that same liberty and confidence regarding my purpose.
      Thanks for sharing. And have a blessed and productive day.

      1. I was looking a few weeks back and saw that we first followed one another almost 6 years ago I believe! I’ll have to check again. But you followed me on the blog I sunset last year and I was looking on it and smiled. It’s been a LOT of change and growth for both of us!! Praise HIM!!!
