Who is like You, O Lord?

God, it is more than my words can fully express, but I worship and give thanks and serve  you cheerfully because You have provided so completely everything that makes each new day, even each new breath a wonder, an adventure and memorable experience.

I am so blown away that you could love so much to have caused Jesus to die on the cross for us sinners and bring us to everlasting life, and have given us the Holy Spirit for increasing in our knowledge and love of you and others.  You have given us the freedom and power to come into Your intimate presence through our Savior Jesus Christ.

This Thanksgiving it is humbling, awe-inspiring, and reason for joyful celebration to understand that You saw fit to reveal Yourself and set apart those who seek You to truly find, truly know, truly worship and truly live through You in spirit and in truth.

Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth!
Serve the LORD with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!

Know that the LORD, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!

For the LORD is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.

Psalm 100

love = forgiveness

One forgives as much as one loves. -- Francois Rochefoucauld

This Day's Thought

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
1 Peter 4:8 (NIV)
