was worshiping the Lord this morning, one song particularly spoke to me:
can I say or do to show my gratitude?
can I give in turn for what I cannot earn?
broken and contrite heart You will not despise
humble and upright life catches Your eye
will bring nothing less than everything
will sing songs that bless Your name
my heart, all my soul, all my mind, all my strength
will bring nothing less
hurt me very deeply yesterday, and I ached over it all day long. Usually, with
the Lord’s help, I can get over offenses, forgive the person, and go on with my
day. But yesterday, it was tough to do. When I was singing this morning, “What
can I say or do to show my gratitude?” the Lord answered, “Forgive __________
and let go of the offense.” That is how we show our gratitude for all He has
done for us, by loving those who do not love us, by turning the other cheek,
going the extra mile, giving our shirt as well. By washing feet. By forgiving
70 x 7. By obeying Him in all things.
