In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
I Thessalonians 5:18
Today I am thankful that God is a God of second chances. I am thankful that even though I was the worst of sinners rebelling and running from Him, He never gave up on me. He picked me up, dusted me off and set me on my feet again!
I am eternally thankful that there is absolutely nothing that I can do that will make Him love me less, and there is nothing that I have done that is so terrible that He will not forgive.
I am thankful that when I confess my sin, He puts them behind his back (Isaiah 38:17), treads them underfoot and hurls them into the depths of the sea! (Micah 7: 19)
I am so thankful that we get a daily do-over. Or sometimes in my case, even an hourly do-over! His mercies are new every morning! (Lam. 3:22-23)
What are you thankful for today?
