To name a few

I thank you for the gift of salvation. 
Because by your blood, I am saved from damnation.

I thank you for my good health.
Especially during these times, worth greater than wealth.

I thank you for blessing the work of my hands.
Because without your favour, it would all sink like in quicksand.

I thank you for renewing and restoring my youth.
And all that the lord of flies stole, but with wisdom tooth.

I thank you for being so kind and gentle.
With my foolishness and tantrums, you are still not temperamental.

I thank you for you have always been faithful.
Though the world stabs my back intermittently, for you I am grateful.

I thank you for waking me up each morning and this beautiful life.
And covering my ears when the serpent strikes.

I thank you for with you I am never alone.
Ever since in my heart you were enthroned.

I thank you for my exceptionally beautiful family.
Anointed and rooted in the Word, beyond practicality. 

I thank you for my Guardian Angel.
Sometimes I pity the guy for all his troubles.
 
I thank you for all my talents and blessings.
Some of them, quite surprising and undeserving.

I thank you for detangling my crazy mess.
Much worse than the most complicated game of chess.

I thank you for I am no longer spiritually blind.
Because now I can see beyond myself and mankind.

I thank you for sending the Helper, your Holy Spirit.
With Him in my body, salvation I inherit.

I thank you for taking over and fighting my battles.
While I sit back and enjoy, just changing channels.

I thank you for your unconditional love.
Through blood on that cross, and now as a dove.

I thank you for giving me, in my heart - this joy.
That nobody can do anything to steal and destroy.

I thank you for your loving grace.
For even when I'm bad, you still embrace.

I thank you for this confusing peace.
Which, in my opinion, is your masterpiece.

And most of all, I thank you for your Word.
It makes vivid, everything that was blurred.

  2. β€œWell done, good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your Master” (Matt. 25:21), is what any of us should hope to hear more than anything when we meet Him. But, as we head toward that appointment with our Maker we should be striving always for excellence in our behavior and endeavors seeking to do His will. I see from your very beautiful words that is clearly your intention; and because I just yesterday shared some specific scriptures with two friends which I want to leave with you also as a third friend. I’m sure they will be appreciated and helpful to you and others. God bless you.

    “Verses for Strength in the Face of Uncertainty”
    1. Psalm 46:1-2 β€œGod is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear…”

    4. Isaiah 41:10 β€œSo do not fear, for I am with you, do not be dismayed, for I am your God, I will strengthen you and help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
    5. Nahum 1:7 “The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him…”
    6. John 16:33 β€œI have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
    7. Psalm 18:2 β€œThe LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”
    8. Deuteronomy 3:22 β€œDo not fear them, for the Lord your God is the one fighting for you.”
    9. Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon that is formed against you will prosper…”
    10. Habakkuk 3:19 β€œThe Sovereign Lord is my strength, he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights.”
    11. Philippians 4:8-9 β€œFinally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirableβ€”if anything is excellent or praiseworthyβ€”think about such things…and the God of peace will be with you.”
    12. Joshua 1:9 β€œHave I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
    13. 1 Peter 5:8-10 β€œBe alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.”
    14. Jeremiah 29:11 β€œFor I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
    15. 1 John 4:4 “Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.”
    16. John 14:27 β€œPeace I leave with you, my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
    17. Numbers 6:24-26 The Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you, the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”
    18. Genesis 50:20 β€œYou intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”
    19. Psalm 29:11 β€œThe Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.” Psa 29:11
    20. Ephesians 6:10-12 β€œFinally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
    21. Zephaniah 3:17 β€œThe Lord your God is in your midst, a victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.”
    22. Psalm 91:1-2 β€œHe who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the LORD, β€˜My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!’”
    23. Isaiah 54:10 β€œThough the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken, nor my covenant of peace be removed, says the Lord, who has compassion on you.”
    24. Romans 8:38-39 “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
    25. Philippians 4:6-7 β€œDo not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

    Amen.

    1. Wow….these are such beautiful verses. I love the 6th one especially because I can relate to that one the most at present. ( John 16:33). They’re all very uplifting. I have never heard of the prophet Zephaniah before. I do not have this book in my GNT. Thank you for sharing, Lawrence πŸ™πŸŒŸπŸ˜€βœοΈπŸŒŸπŸ™
