I wonder how long it would actually take me if I wrote everything I should be grateful for.
For health, safety, knowledge, freedom, family, friends, prosperity, and well-being.
I could spend days listing the subcategories in each of the fundamental blessings I already mentioned. And many more days listing items in each of the subcategories. But this year, I would like to focus on one specific blessing.
But there is a blessing that I always take for granted.
As I listened to my favourite hymn at church yesterday, I realized I take
being God’s own child for granted!
Here is an excerpt of the hymn that inspired this Thanksgiving reflection:
Father God, I wonder how I managed to exist
Without the knowledge of Your parenthood and Your loving care
But now I am Your child, I am adopted in Your family
And I can never be alone
Cause Father God, You’re there beside me
I will sing Your praises
How magnificent is this blessing, this grace? I was born into this reality:
- I did not search for it (as millions have throughout the ages).
- Fleeing from persecution to find salvation was not my lot.
- I did not suffer unbearable tortures for my faith, as the martyrs did.
- Practicing my faith in secrecy as millions of Christians still is not my reality.
I was handed this inheritance on a golden platter and a wooden Cross.
Truly, I wonder how I could have ever deserved this blessing.
May we all sing His praises forevermore.
