My Thank You Message to God for All of His Blessings
There is a song that I love by Yolanda Adams named “Fragile Heart”. In it, she sings “when I think about life, Lord I think of you. I forget about everything else. There’s only you and I“. That song speaks to the core of how grateful I am to God for my life and everything in it.
At the end of the day, whether good, bad, high or low, the beginning and the end is God. That’s it. All that I have and all that I am stems from Him. I think about the love and the material provisions that I am surrounded by daily and I am aware that I did nothing to deserve such tremendous blessings. Because of this, I will never have the adequate words to craft a worthy thank you message to God for his blessings. To Him, I am eternally grateful.
