Give thanks

Driving home from work today,
I was reminded of a worship song we sang when I was young.
As I began to sing it in my car, I mentally went back to the pews at Skyline,
standing and singing next to my mom; 
she holding my hand with hers and raising the other to the God of the universe.

The words hung in the air
and I realized how good God is
and how much I have to be thankful for.

On this first of November, my spirit is thankful.
I'm thankful for grace. 
I'm thankful that when I am weak, He is strong.
I'm thankful that He sees the depths of my heart and loves me the same.
I'm thankful I have a Savior.
I'm thankful He died for me.
I'm thankful for the riches of His grace which He freely bestows on His children.
I'm thankful for life.
I'm thankful for kingdom vision.

Give thanks with a grateful heart.
Give thanks to the Holy One.
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His son.

And now let the weak say I am strong;
let the poor say I am rich.
Because of what the Lord has done for us,
Give thanks.
