Grateful

Today’s prompt for the #Five Minute Friday group of writers is: Grateful.

Strangely enough that is what came out for me in my bible.reading this morning from Ephesians 1:3-14

📍 Blessed with every spiritual blessing:-
Chosen to be blameless
Adopted as legal heirs
Have grace freely bestowed upon us
Redemption
Forgiveness of our sins
God’s own possession
Sealed with the Holy Spirit

🖊 As Christians we are ALL given these blessings, they are lavished upon us, this is now what we have and who we.are.in Christ.

No matter our physical circumstances or status these are.our blessings and if we can’t find anything else in our lives to give thanks for, we can give thanks for all these spiritual blessings.

God has given them to us generously, according to His riches, according to His good pleasure and for the Praise of His glory. There is no way then that we should be living as spiritual paupers, or as unthankful people, instead we should be living rich lives, full of gratitude for all our many blessings.

So today, no matter what our circumstances look like we are richly blessed and for that I am grateful.

  1. There’s no way that we earned this boon,
    salvation of our souls;
    indeed, all we deserved was doom;
    for us, no bell would toll
    for we clung fast unto the night
    we fancied hid our sin,
    but God came through, and brought the light
    He needed to begin
    to wean us from idolatry,
    not graven, but in heart,
    and set our feet on odyssey
    where we might take His part
    to rise and hold His mighty hand
    on entry to His promised land.
