Colossians 1:11, 12
“May you be strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience, with joy giving thanks to the Father, Who has enabled you to share in the saints’ inheritance in the light.”

“He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”

2:6, 7
“Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, WALK IN HIM, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”

Okay, thankfulness seems to be a big theme of late in the verses the Lord is spotlighting for me.

Lord, I repent of being unthankful and choosing discontentment. I repent of looking to anyone or anything else to be my joy and strength. You are bigger, better, more beautiful, loving me lavishly (even if I can’t figure it out or even fully receive it), the ultimate hero. I will choose to delight in You.


  • we have so much to be thankful for...counting our blessings would take an eternity. but one of the great blessings in our lives is YOU. and we do thank God that He gave us the privilege of parenting a daughter who has grown into a beautiful, loving, Christian woman...
