Day 751 of Giving Thanks

Today, as I once again come to You Lord, I cannot imagine what it was like before I came to You. And, I never want to remember those times. I only want to reflect on the goodness of how my life has changed, my life is now transformed.

God’s orchestration is truly amazing, unexpected, unexplainable, unbelievable and undeserved, yet He creates an incredible journey, and when looked back upon, plays just like a perfectly performed symphony. I cannot wait to hear the harps, cymbals resounding and the trumpets sounding.

PRAISE THE Lord! Praise God in His sanctuary; praise Him in the heavens of His power! Praise Him for His mighty acts; praise Him according to the abundance of His greatness! Praise Him with trumpet sound; praise Him with lute and harp! Praise Him with tambourine and [single or group] dance; praise Him with stringed and wind instruments or flutes! Praise Him with resounding cymbals; praise Him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath and every breath of life praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)” ~Psalm 150 (Amplified Bible)

Isn’t it just like God to be so fond of music? A melody of perfection at the hand of my Creator. WOW!

My God’s got me. I see it every day evidenced through change, favor and mercy. I am grateful for every day, every moment, every challenge and every unknown today.

When we remember that we are the bride (all of us, man and woman) of our savior, who already died for us... nothing on this earth should affect us on during our wedding preparation (life). We are to prepare, anticipate perfection, exude excitement for the day when we will be united with our King. Sing, dance, celebrate and praise Him.

Every time I need an attitude adjustment, I just think about that, and all is changed. And through this journey, I will change, transform as I live according to His will.

“So then, my friends, because of God's great mercy to us I appeal to you: Offer yourselves as a living sacrifice to God, dedicated to his service and pleasing to him. This is the true worship that you should offer. Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind. Then you will be able to know the will of God—what is good and is pleasing to him and is perfect.
“And because of God's gracious gift to me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you should. Instead, be modest in your thinking, and judge yourself according to the amount of faith that God has given you. We have many parts in the one body, and all these parts have different functions. In the same way, though we are many, we are one body in union with Christ, and we are all joined to each other as different parts of one body. So we are to use our different gifts in accordance with the grace that God has given us. If our gift is to speak God's message, we should do it according to the faith that we have; if it is to serve, we should serve; if it is to teach, we should teach; if it is to encourage others, we should do so. Whoever shares with others should do it generously; whoever has authority should work hard; whoever shows kindness to others should do it cheerfully.” ~Romans 12:1-8 (Good News Translation)
