Gratitude Challenge Day 7: God Chases

 

 love is inspite not IG

3 Things I’m grateful for — Day 7:

1. God chased me.
2. God caught me.
3. God keeps me.

Chased. Caught. Kept. I’m His! The pictured quote, “Love  is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their filthy heart” just rings so true to me. That is the love that chases us, the love we show when we chase others in kind. Love chased your filthy heart and chases mine. A.W. Tozer said, “God’s already put me so far in debt that if I were to live one million millenniums I couldn’t pay Him for what He’s done for me.” I mean with every fiber of my being that I owe a debt of love I never can repay. I’m grateful to have such a God and that He has me. Join me in this challenge; feel free to tag or link me! Post 3 things per day for 7 days.

Gratitude Challenge Day 6: God Changes

prayer changes things me

3 Things I’m grateful for — Day 6:

1. God changes NOT. {yesterday, today, and forever}
2. God changes circumstances. {Fix it, Jesus.}
3. God changes ME. {Wash me, Lord.}

Oswald Chambers said, “Prayer is not a matter of changing things externally, but one of working miracles in a person’s inner nature.” The more I pray, the more I concede that prayer changes me much more than my circumstances. I’m grateful, today, for an unchanging God who ever changes me. Join me in this challenge; feel free to tag or link me! Post 3 things per day for 7 days.

Gratitude Challenge Day 5: Wisdom

 

wisdom

3 Things I’m grateful for — Day 5:

1. That God knows ALL things…
2. That God withholds SOME things…
3. That God reveals ANYTHING…

Consider the following Langston Hughes poem:

God in His infinite wisdom ● Did not make me very wise.

So when my actions are stupid ● They hardly take God by surprise.

I’m so grateful I don’t have to know all things; I know the God who knows all things. Further, He said that if any of us lack wisdom, He’ll give it to us liberally, without reproach, meaning we can come again, and again, and He’ll never tire of making us wise (James 1:5). I don’t know who I am that God is mindful of me and would share ANYTHING with me, but I’m grateful! Join me in this challenge; feel free to tag or link me! Post 3 things per day for 7 days.

Gratitude Challenge Day 4: Good News

3 Things I’m grateful for — Day 4:

1. God hears.
2. God sees.
3. God moves.

Exodus 3:8 and Acts 7:34 say the following: I have seen the oppression of my people…I have heard their cries…I am aware of their suffering…and I have come to set them free. That’s music to my ears, my friends, what precious and good news – God hears, God sees, God moves!

Gratitude Challenge Day 3: Sweetness and Suffering

 

3 Things I’m grateful for — Day 3:

1. God’s voice — sweet
2. God’s choice — sovereign
3. God’s noise –suffering 

C.S. Lewis said, “God whispers to us in our pleasures…but shouts in our pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world.” God’s voice can be so sweet, so gentle. Yet, when needed, He uses noise — suffering — to steer us in the right direction. I’m grateful for the sweetness of His voice and the sovereignty of HIS choice to use the noise. Any which way He has to, He has me. Join me in this challenge; feel free to tag or link me! Post 3 things per day for 7 days.

Gratitude Challenge Day 2: Faithful When I’m Not

Semper Fi

3 Things I’m grateful for — Day 2:

1. God keeps promises I didn’t ask Him to make.
2. God answers prayers I didn’t have sense to pray.
3. God speaks words I didn’t have faith to say.

Romans 3:3-4 says, “What if some were unfaithful? Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God? By no means! Let God be true though every one were a liar…” God is crazy faithful, y’all! Faithful when I’m not, when I don’t even know how to be faithful or that He’s calling me to more, He just shows up with more — more of His grace, more of His love, more of His steadfast faithfulness. I’m grateful. Join me in this challenge; feel free to tag or link me! Post 3 things per day for 7 days.

Gratitude Challenge Day 1: Jesus Wept

jesus wept

“Jesus wept.” ~John 11:35

3 things I’m grateful for –Day 1:

1. God cares.
2. God’s tears.
3. God’s here.
Charles Spurgeon said, “A Jesus who never wept could never wipe my tears.” I get it. God’s been where I’ve been and won where I’ll win. The bible tells us God cares about the grass, how much more will He care about us? He’s moved with compassion for us, and He’s promised to be with us always. God (the Son), shed tears, cares about your tears, and is right here with you, through it all. I don’t usually post such short blurbs, but felt impressed to share this gratitude challenge on here. I challenge each of you to do the same and feel free to tag me (I was challenged a while ago to post 3 things per day for 7 days).
