Thank You

DSC02779

Thanksgiving is a spiritual exercise, necessary to the building of a healthy soul. It takes us out of the stuffiness of ourselves into the fresh breeze and sunlight of the will of God. The simple act of thanking Him is for most of us an abrupt change of activity, a break from work and worry, a move toward re-creation. — Elisabeth Elliot

It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to the Most High. (Psalm 92:1, NLT)

Life without thankfulness is devoid of love and passion. Hope without thankfulness is lacking in fine perception. Faith without thankfulness lacks strength and fortitude. Every virtue divorced from thankfulness is maimed and limps along the spiritual road.                                     — J. H. Jowett

Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:18, NLT)

Jesus, I just want to thank You this morning—You, so high above my life—for the joy that returns. You stoop down to anoint my spirit with comfort and peace. Thank You for your invading goodness, the kindness that You leave just inside the door of my days. Thank You for the relentless mercies that pursue me when I stray. Thank You for carrying my sorrows like a tender Father. — David Kopp

So thank God for his marvelous love, for his miracle mercy to the children he loves; Offer thanksgiving sacrifices, tell the world what he’s done—sing it out! (Psalm 107:21-22, MSG)

Thank you for the cross, Lord
Thank you for the price You paid
Bearing all my sin and shame
In love You came
And gave amazing grace
            — Darlene Joyce Zschech
