Thanksgiving Praise

Beth Moore has walk me through a significant time in my life-a time of brokenness and spiritual rebirth. God has used her and her writings the most to capture my heart, transform my mind, soul, and actions to be able to be His servant. I am currently going through her study "Stepping Up: A journey through the Psalms of Ascent" in my quiet time. A few days ago I came across the following words from within this study:

"He knew that even after the severest beating of my life and by far the deepest brokenness, He'd forgive me, heal me, crucify that self-destructive part of me, and stand me back on my feet through the measureless power of His Spirit." pp.75.

As I sat in my quiet time contemplating the sharing of my testimony in my blog yesterday, the "me" I use to be, and the fallout I may experience, I remembered these words. They are my words. They have been written in the front of my Bible. God had Beth pen these words for me and they are meant to be for you.

This thanksgiving as I reflect on what I am most grateful for, I am grateful that "He knew that even after the severest beating of my life and by far the deepest brokenness, He'd forgive me, heal me, crucify that self-destructive part of me, and stand me back on my feet through the measureless power of His Spirit."
Amazing. Humbling. Doesn't it just make you want to fall on your face to Him in prayer? I did. Tearfully.

This thanksgiving it is truly all about Him.

I am grateful for His grace. I am grateful for His mercy.
