Here’s Michael Lining’s arrangement of “I Just Want to Thank You, Lord,” written by Robert Deel.
Lately, my heart has overflowed with thankfulness. God has been doing amazing things in my life. He has been providing, guiding, protecting, blessing, teaching, disciplining … the list goes on.
I am so thankful for the love of God. It’s a love that we, human beings, can’t understand. It is so wide, so deep, so big that it surpasses all means we have of measuring it.
Wow! Knowing this, my heart just feels compelled to take a posture of thankfulness and worship to the One who gave his life for me. And throughout my days on earth I want to sing and count the many blessings he has given me — for my family, for the food that he provides, for clothes and shoes, for the sunrise and the sunset, for the water that flows into the ocean, for the freedoms and victories, for the spiritual community that he gave me, for “making me whole, saving my soul.”
Thank you, Lord!
“Rejoice always, pray continually, Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
What are thankful for today? What has God been doing in your life?
“Give thanks to the Lord, who is good, whose mercy endures forever” (Psalm 106:1)
