When I think of your holiness, Lord
I bow my head in reverence
When I think of your loving care, Abba
My eyes brim over with tears
You are magnificent and awesome
You are the reason my heart beats
You are the light that gives me vision
You are my anchor in a shifting world
You are my shelter from life’s storms
And you are my hope for tomorrow
Thank you for making me after your image
Thank you for redeeming me from bondage
Thank you for sealing me with your Spirit
Thank you for the grace to serve you now
Thank you for your return is close at hand
When I shall be one with you in perfection
With all my heart, I say, “Thank you, Lord!”

    These days, we hardly hear this kind of testimony that talks so much about spiritual blessings, a deviation from modern day typical testimonies. Tis a reminder to all, especially believers, to appreciate their spiritual lives alongside material benefits from God. Tanx 4 that reminder.

    Thanksgiving is very important in the life of a Christian. When you learn how to say thank you to your Maker, it opens doors to many more blessings for you even beyond your expectations.
    Even our earthly parents, we learn how to say thank you to them and appreciate them for the things they have done for us, how much more our Heavenly Father. Both in times of good and bad, we should always learn how to thank this great God…………Thank you Lord for blessing me more than I deserve………..Kudos, ma.
