Yesterday, I gave thanks for my many blessings; my family, our home, friends, enough food, and a lifestyle most of the world doesn’t get to enjoy.
And I gave thanks for the invisible workings of God - His amazing gift of forgiveness, His joy that strengthens me in this journey, the glorious hope of heaven, love that binds our hearts together, and His love that will never fail.
We pray for peace
Comfort for family, protection while we sleep
We pray for healing, for prosperity
We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering
All the while, You hear each spoken need
Yet love is way too much to give us lesser things
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You're near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise?
Can I see the hand of God in ALL of my life - and give thanks?
