Day 497 of Giving Thanks

Today I know that God doesn’t care if I know all the answers are not. And, today, I don’t care if I live up to the expectation of others when it comes to the answers. In the early part of my Christian walk, I did care. In fact, I cared so much, that I was afraid of giving the wrong answer and just not measuring up, that I just wouldn’t give an answer. I am here to tell you, that once we “accept” God’s amazing gift, “measuring up” no longer matters.

Today I know that God is the answer for everything, and I cannot imagine not going to Him to receive them. And at every moment of every day, they are right there at the edge of my thoughts and completely inspired by the Holy Spirit – how does that work? It works perfectly. How do I work? I am a work in process – on track for perfection. Isn’t that a nice place to be?

I am a woman who knows favor. I am a woman whose heart has transformed. I am a woman who has so many gifts. I am a woman who desires to learn what those gifts mean. I am a woman who has a purpose. I am a woman who He treasures. I am a woman grateful for the greatest gift offered.

God sent His son, Jesus.
He gave everything for me.
He lived and died... so that I could be free.
An empty tomb, gives us the opportunity for eternal life.
Who else gave so much for me?
How could I not be AMAZED?
And, really it is all for me.

I am a treasure in the eyes of Christ.


“My help and glory are in God — granite-strength and safe-harbor-God — So trust him absolutely, people; lay your lives on the line for him. God is a safe place to be.” ~Psalm 62:7

Today I know that it is being grateful for what He did (for me), that brings me closer to Him. Today I know that understanding comes when I know it is all about Him because He loves me so much. This was a concept that eluded me for so long. You may be in the same place, I once was.

“Thank you for responding to me; you've truly become my salvation! The stone the masons discarded as flawed is now the capstone! This is GOD's work. We rub our eyes—we can hardly believe it! This is the very day God acted — let's celebrate and be festive!

Salvation now, GOD. Salvation now! Oh yes, GOD — a free and full life!” ~Psalm 118:24 (The Message)

My friends, know this—
God sent His son, Jesus.
He gave everything for YOU.
He lived and died... so that YOU could be free.
An empty tomb, gives YOU the opportunity for eternal life.
Who else gave so much for me?
How could YOU not be AMAZED?
And, really it is all for YOU.

Father, thank You that all this was done for each of us. Thank You for creating us wonderfully for Your purposes, and giving us the opportunity to spend eternity with you. Father, I pray that hearts will be opened and many will know how amazing life truly is.


“GOD, investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand. I'm an open book to you; even from a distance, you know what I'm thinking. You know when I leave and when I get back; I'm never out of your sight. You know everything I'm going to say before I start the first sentence. I look behind me and you're there, then up ahead and you're there, too — your reassuring presence, coming and going. This is too much, too wonderful—I can't take it all in!” ~Psalm 139:1-6
Today I know that God is the answer for everything — how about you?

You are a treasure in the eyes of Christ.

I love people. My life has been spent seeking new friendships and helping others. God's gifting is being worked out into His plan for me. I am excited to share insights of His leadings and lessons.
