Thank You LORD!
by Danita Harris

Psalm 54:4 "But surely, God is my helper; the Lord is the upholder of my life."

When was the last time you took time out and just gave a prayer of thanks to the Lord? Our lives can become so hectic and crazy at times that we may forget to just say "Thank you Lord". We serve a loving God who is always there to help us in time of need. He never leaves us for His word says that nothing shall ever separate us from His love. God, I thank you for that!

Lord I thank you for being a constant companion. Morning, noon or night your presence is always with me. Your arms are there to hold me. Your loving hand wipes away my tears. When my life seems so dark and confusing, You are the light that makes my way brighter. Thank you Lord.

When the world says I can't, my faith in you allows me to say I can. Thank you Lord for instilling in me the fact that I can do all things through you because you strengthen me...you give me hope. Thank you Lord for being a rock that I can stand on. My relationship with you has provided a firm foundation of truth in my life.

Thank you Lord for my health, for mental stability, for family and friends who love and care for me. Thank you Jesus for dying on the cross and shedding your blood, so that I may have eternal life. I could never repay the price you paid to give me a new life, but I am so thankful to you for it.

Lord, I want to thank you for everyone who is reading this right now. I thank you for their desire to know more about you and who you are in their lives. May their hearts be filled with sincere thankfulness to You. Bless them Lord!

Jesus, thank you for teaching me and showing me real joy. It's something the world can never take away from me and a perfect gift from you.

Thank you Lord for loving me enough to correct me when I'm wrong. For placing people in my life who hold me accountable to living the life of a godly woman.

Father I thank you for being you. A father who loves and supports me. A father who makes me feel safe and secure.

Thank you Lord for picking me up, dusting me off, and molding me into the woman You have called me to be. You could have given me over to my fleshly desires, and myself, but your love and grace transformed me...and I'm still transforming.

Thank you Lord for giving me a boldness to profess that you are the Lord of my life everywhere I go. You've given me a confidence that the enemy tries to take away, but when I call on your name, "Jesus", the devil has to flee.

So Lord, I just thank you, thank you and thank you. I thank you for these things and so much more. May my life be an example of your power and your love. Thank you for using me to be a vessel of your goodness. Thank you so much Lord for your everlasting love.
