  • Gratitude

    Every day - there is gratitude - I have more than I deserve.
    I think it is called grace.

    It is amazing that you posted this this morning. Yesterday I was filled with gratitude all day. I was totally aware that this gratitude was a gift from The Lord and I was also grateful for that.

    I ran early in the morning and at the end of my 5 miles I ran a half mile course in 3:50. It is not an easy course because it has 108 steps in it. Three of those flights are going up. I was very grateful, for I was aware that I did nothing to deserve this gift, but it was totally grace. I can not put this in words, it was supernatural grace for me to be this grateful and I was fully aware that it was. I was really touched.

    Later that day I went to my gun club. There was another man there and we both shot each others guns. I am a fairly good shot, but that day I could not miss. We had targets that we were able to see every shot as we made them, and every shot was in the bull or very close. I had days like this before, but this time The Lord gave me this supernatural awareness of His grace. I was touched by Him the whole time I was driving back home.

    I can not imagine the grace we will all be aware of when we first see Him in heaven:

    1 Cor 2 God’s Wisdom Revealed by the Spirit

    6 We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7 No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. 8 None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 However, as it is written:

    “What no eye has seen,
    what no ear has heard,
    and what no human mind has conceived”—
    the things God has prepared for those who love him—

    10 these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit.

    The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 11 For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.12 What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.13 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. 14 The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness,and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. 15 The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments,16 for,

    “Who has known the mind of the Lord
    so as to instruct him?”

    But we have the mind of Christ.

      Thinking of this immediately melted all rebellion.
