Incessantly thankful, Father? Gratitude, regardless? Not only "in all things," but "for" them, as well? Yes, for so You have commanded, sovereign Love, knowing the needed and encouraging changes thanksgiving works in this sin-scarred heart of mine. For, when I thank You: *faith is exercised that You are good, and do good, regardless of what I'm experiencing. *my thoughts are taken from myself, and placed where they belong... upon You. *You are obeyed,and the Holy Spirit within me is pleased. *my attitude is transformed, thereby encouraging other believers to do likewise. *a lost and watching world sees the distinctive difference You make in a believer's life. *life is put in proper perspective...under Your sovereign supervision!
