I awakened this morning with a song going over in my thoughts from the days of my newness of life with Jesus. As I thought on the words of the song the Holy Spirit began to speak to me about a gracious heart filled with gratitude. How precious it is when I close my eyes at night talking with my Father to awaken with Him talking to me.
Being the curious person I am I thought I knew the definition of the word “Gracious” still I looked it up and much to my surprise one of the definitions was in a category listed as “Obsolete” meaning no longer useful. Can you guess what the word considered obsolete was? In that one word I understood why the Holy Spirit had led me down this path today.
The word that is associated with the term Gracious that is now “Obsolete” is Godly.
How sad for if it had not been for gracious men and women God I would not be sitting here today writing this post. My children and grandchildren and the generations to come might never have heard the message of salvation and the power God has invested in them for His glory
I believe it is good to remember where we came from so we can remain grateful for the love that Jesus gave so we could have the life that God intended from before the foundation of the world.
So as I sit here with my cup of coffee planning out my day I ask you to be what the world considers “Obsolete” and share the gratitude of a gracious heart for this great big wonderful life we have been given. Even in the darkest times we can find something to be grateful for if we just take a minute to think of where we came from and where we could be if not for Jesus.
By the way the song was,”Desperation with Kenny Hinson” My desperate days are gone for now I live in the glory days of His presence!
For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].
