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
