Grateful to be called

What a blessing to be in your presence, heavenly Father! What security and peace we feel to walk before you.

Even to the unjust you show yourself benevolent. How much more do you care for and show concern for your righteous people!

Many people are concerned with freedom and privacy today. And even though they are legitimate concerns in the nations, we are grateful to be free in the way that really matters.

Many today run after possessions. We give thanks that we have what can never be taken away from us.

Many today seek pleasures. We are thankful for the profound joy of following Christ and having our separating sins removed.

Many today seek a better place to live, even moving to other countries in search of improved conditions. We praise you that we have been transferred from dark and evil powers into the kingdom of the Son whom you love.

Many want to change jobs. We are profoundly grateful to be called to the greatest work of all, that of explaining to those who are far away what you have done in Christ to reconcile us to yourself.

10 reasons to give thanks today

Thanks be to God

  1. For another day of life, full of blessing, full of your presence.
  2. For the opportunities you constantly present to us; help us to see and take advantage of them.
  3. For good study resources and encouraging literature.
  4. For the message of the Bible that always instructs, inspires, and empowers us.
  5. For the power of the mind, and the gift of creativity.
  6. For free will to choose our way and the many good options to use our day.
  7. For gifts of service, that allow us to glorify your name.
  8. For sustaining life, providing necessities, offering meaningful work, allowing opportunity of employment.
  9. For your sovereign rule that guides the affairs of men toward your final goal, regardless of the evil plans and injustice of rulers and governors.
  10. For friends who love at all times, for brothers and sisters in Christ who encourage in faith, for saints whose examples remind us of our Lord and Savior.

Help me today to speak directly and appropriately to the needs of others, about the solution found always in Christ.

Protect our house this day from evil

Heavenly Father, protect our house this day from evil. Let us walk in your presence. May your hands bless our home, our marriage, our coming and going, our rising and our rest.

Help us to serve the brethren well and strengthen, and perhaps even save, relationships with you, with each other, with those outside of Christ.

Focus my mind on your goodness, on acting with knowledge, on being patient and grateful.

Strengthen me to take the steps forward that I need to take today. Help me consider the present, leaving in your hands the cares of the future.

Thank you for health, for work, for opportunity, for faith, for family, for life’s necessities, for eternity’s door in Jesus Christ my Savior.

For Freedom

Thank you, Lord, for setting me free
To serve in love, for righteousness;
For life and strength, for power to be,
For heavenly blessing, to share and bless.

Thank you, Lord, for wisdom’s mind,
For truthful way, for choice of path;
For light to lead the spiritually blind,
For Jesus who appeases wrath.

Thank you, Lord, for the house of faith —
Brothers and sisters in love and growth;
For cleansing blood in which to bathe,
For hope in present and future, both.

Our fellowship with you our food

Father, our fellowship with you is our food. We share in common a love this world cannot know.

We experience the life from the Source of living.

We know the Son who lives in us and walks with us until the end. We suffer with him and for him, for the sake of the Good News and the salvation of many.

We serve the needy and use our gifts for the benefit of the body of Christ.

This is our pleasure and joy and crown. We thank you for this communion.

Another Journey

We rise again, O Lord, to face
Another journey, another step,
Another day of friendly grace,
For waking joys till now asleep.

Our thanks, O God, for daily bread
And strength, for wisdom’s gentle light,
Midst trial and pain, for faithful aid
Upon the tempter’s fiery height.

My Savior, show me open doors
For Jesus Christ — let me not fear
To bravely leave the safer shores,
But dare, beyond horizons, steer.

Thank you for opportunities

Thank you, Father, for so many opportunities to learn, grow, serve, and love. Instead of being discouraged by so many needs out there, let me be encouraged and motivated that you open so many doors.

My heart overflows with gratitude, O Lord, who gives life, that you preserve us and make life so interesting and beautiful.

God who knows every hair on our heads, I’m terrible at math, and worse at counting my blessings. Help me to keep up better and be grateful. I confess my ingratitude. Continue reading
