  • Thank You Lord

    Gracious, holy God,
    As the Puritans wrote in “The Valley of Vision,” “Thou hast made me out of nothing, hast recalled me from a far country, translated me from ignorance to knowledge, from darkness to light, death to life, misery to peace, folly to wisdom, error to truth and sin to victory.”
    You have been good to me!
    Thank you, Lord, for one more year of living in your mercy and grace, for withholding the wrath I deserve and instead, heaping upon me blessings that bring me to my knees in humble gratitude.
