I mentioned on my last post that Dannye and I sang this past Sunday for morning worship. I thought you might enjoy hearing the song. It’s not Dannye and I singing, but Kristyn Getty. She is amazing, and I love to hear her sing this or any of their great songs. Just before we sang, Bill read a portion of the latest newsletter from our Florida kids. Will and Pamela try to send out a newsletter monthly to keep in touch with family and friends. It is so much fun to read. This one ended with a thought about Thanksgiving that I’d also like to share:
“Psalm 107:1 reads: “O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever.
What a truly magnificent thing! So magnificent in fact that this exact phrase is found over forty times in the Bible. There is a foundation for thanksgiving, and that foundation is in the mercy of God. The fact of the matter is this: if you have never experienced the mercy of God, you have never experienced thanksgiving.
No greater example has ever been given of God’s mercy than the example of Calvary, for as Jesus was nailed to the cross for the sins of all mankind, he cried out, “Father forgive them.”
What great love and vast mercy! Praise be to God for the gift of His Son! Praise be to Christ for the gift of Himself! Praise Him that “by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life!” Have you received His gift? Have you experienced thanksgiving?”
I was so blessed from reading this, then saw how closely it lined up with the song we were singing in church. It was perfect!
Please listen when you have time – I know you’ll be blessed!
God bless your day!
