My Heart Is Filled with Thankfulness

Thanksgiving Contest - What Are You Thankful For?

For what did you give thanks over the Thanksgiving holiday?  For family?  For friends? For provision of needs?

Did you take the time to thank God for His gift of salvation?  Paul told the Colossians to give “joyful thanks to the Father…For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins” (Colossians 1:12-14).  What a marvelous reason to be thankful!

My heart is filled with thankfulness
To Him who bore my pain;
Who plumbed the depths of my disgrace
And gave me life again;
Who crushed my curse of sinfulness
And clothed me in His light
And wrote His law of righteousness
With pow’r upon my heart.

My heart is filled with thankfulness
To Him who walks beside;
Who floods my weaknesses with strength
And causes fears to fly;
Whose ev’ry promise is enough
For ev’ry step I take,
Sustaining me with arms of love
And crowning me with grace.

My heart is filled with thankfulness
To him who reigns above,
Whose wisdom is my perfect peace,
Whose ev’ry thought is love.
For ev’ry day I have on earth
Is given by the King;
So I will give my life, my all,
To love and follow him.

– Keith Getty & Stuart Townend
