BLESSED TO BE GRATEFUL collaboration

I am blessed by God Justice and mercy are found in the grace of the Lord I am blessed by His Holy Spirit. Thus, my heart praises the Triune Almighty basking in His wondrous love and compassion assured with His trustworthy promise: “… I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”* I am thankful for... a jealous God who protects His children from Satan, themselves and from the world. Indeed, His power is within us. Hence, with gratefulness to the omnipotent Christ my soul cleaves to Him and to His immutable truth while overcoming doubt, fear, despair with His presence reverberating “Peace I leave with you…”** I cannot face my challengers alone; I cannot find solutions by myself. But I do find strength and wisdom and I am eternally grateful for... sufficiency in the grace of God. Therefore, my spirit is fortified by His upholding might to surmount trials prayerfully along life’s race while enabled with His goodness for stewardship glow serving Him in ministering to others as a blessing trusting His wisdom: “Abide in me… for without me ye can do nothing.” *** He knows better than I what I need; God takes my breath away and replaces it with His own Spirit. Now and forever, I am His precious child granted with divine nature to please Him by faith so while awaiting His coming, I strive to live for His glory testifying: “The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation.”**** *Hebrews 13:5; **John 14:27; ***John 15:4; ****2Samuel 22:47 Noember 26, 2021 A Collaboration blending the poem “I am Blessed by God” of Reason A Poteet (posted on November 19, 2021) and “My Grateful Praises to God” of Beata Agustin (posted on November 25, 2021).

I like the way you formatted this, Beata. So happy to be able to do this duet with you. Our Father God inhabits the praise of His people, Israel; I feel sure Jesus welcomes the praise of His bride, the church just as well.
