Gratefulness !

"Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe,..."  Hebrews 12:28

This morning I am just grateful...grateful for a faithful God.  He knew me before I was even formed in my mother's womb (Psalms 139).  And even though He knew all the mistakes and bad decisions that I would make along life's journey, He STILL allowed me to be born and to come into this world!

God's love is fathomless, we could never determine the depth nor the height of His love for us.  Though He never condones my wrongdoings, He knows beforehand and forgives me when I come to Him with a repentant heart.  We could never earn God's love, it is so very unconditional and the scriptures tells us that we can never get away from it.

I am so grateful that He knew me, saw me, loves me, keeps me and continue to hold me in the palm of His almighty Hand...never to let go!

"Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.   For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."  Romans 8:37-39
