Friday - Gratitude for Ourselves
Lord, we praise you because we are fearfully and wonderfully made. We rejoice because you know our names. We are grateful for the love that you show us.
Psalm 139:1 “Lord, you have searched me out and known me: you know my sitting down and my rising up; you discern my thoughts from afar.”
We are grateful God that (Romans 5:8) “While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” We are grateful that we have received your call and invitation to not only experience the joy of reconciliation, but to find meaningful work as agents and ambassadors of your Kingdom. We thank you God that you have seen fit to work through our weakness and imperfection to make your glory known. We thank you God, because we are not forgotten; because you remember us.
Today take a few minutes to reflect on the past week. How has God affirmed your identity as his beloved child? Return these reflections to God as prayers of gratitude.
