God's love

This was in my devotional this morning and it was just so good-so I had to share. Also, this week I am focusing on the material things that I have and praising God for them. I started making a list today and WOW, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. I have my list at the bottom of this post.

Also-I want you all to know, I really appreciate all your comments lately. They have been so encouraging to me! I love you all dearly :)

In faith, I know these things to be true:

  • God is full of love and grace, and he fills me with his love and grace.
  • God’s work within me is to clear a channel for his love and grace to flow through me into the lives of anyone and everyone I meet.
  • I may not be there yet, but I am “confident of this, that he who began a good work in [me] will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6 NIV).
  • And I know “God is able to make all grace abound [in me], so that in all things at all times, having all that [I] need, [I] will abound in every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:8 NIV).
  • He will make my joy complete because I no longer live in darkness, but I now live in the truth and have fellowship with God (1 John 1:4; 1 John 1:6).
  • Through the “Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit,” I am, at all times, filled with grace, mercy, and peace (2 Corinthians 13:14 NIV).
  • This is what I believe to be true and I will walk accordingly, allowing God to do his work in me from the inside out. Father, make it so. I believe; help my unbelief.
Praise God for the materials he has provided for me:
  1. a house
  2. air conditioning/heat
  3. a car
  4. a job
  5. money in the bank
  6. 2 computers in our home
  7. furniture that matches in our bedroom
  8. decorations on the walls in our house
  9. a phone (cell and home)
  10. clothes
  11. food in the fridge
  12. books to read and increase my knowledge
  13. a wonderful church to go to
  14. shoes (more than one pair)
  15. running water in our home
And I could just keep on listing and listing....praise be to YOU God!
