Five Minute Friday - Giving Thanks

Father as I meditate on Your loving-kindness and goodness
Thanksgiving comes from my heart and is on my lips

Thank You for sending Your Son to bear my sins upon the cross
Because of Christ, my sin debt was marked “Paid in Full”

Thank You for the blood of Jesus Christ
Which cleansed me from all my sin

Thank You for the Gift of Promise
The Holy Spirit, my Guarantee of a future spent with You

Thank You for redeeming this wretched sinner
Taking my heart of stone and giving me a heart of flesh

Thank You for clothing me
In the righteousness of Christ

Thank You for Your life giving Word
Like a river of life for my thirsty soul

Thank You for Your transforming power
Empowering and enabling me to walk victoriously over sin

Thank You for the promise of heaven
An eternity spent with You…the Lover of my soul
