I am grateful that even though the Lord knows my thoughts , He loves me and blesses me anyway.
I am thankful for each day.
I am thankful that although I am finding it hard to trust people, I can trust HIM. He is trustworthy and true and He will never let me down.
Today my heart's desire is to give praise and thanksgiving to the One who created me, to the One who loves me enough that He gave a huge sacrifice for my salvation. My heart's desire this day is to focus on Him and love Him and look up and make Him my focus. Today, I want to constantly bring to mind those things for which I am thankful and make my own list so I can look back on it before I go to sleep at night so I go to sleep thankful. It is in doing this, that my hope and joy will be restored, my faith and peace will be renewed.
After all, many are His thoughts about me (and you). Ps 139 v 17: How precious are Your thoughts about me. They cannot be numbered.
I will remember today that it is not about what is going on around me, no, it is about the Lord and only about the Lord. In changing my focus to Him, I know all that is around me and my perspective on it will change too.
My encouragement to you is that you remember how much God loves you and that He chose you long before you were aware of Him and His great love for you. Remember His unmerited favour and undeserved grace that He pours out on us. He does this because He first loved us.
