Lord, Thank You For My Life

If you're my Facebook friend, then you may have noticed a song I posted on my wall today.  The song is "Dear God" by Smokie Norful, and it is one my absolute favorites.  For me, the song is a testimony, and perfectly expresses how grateful I am for my life.  When I listen to the words, I feel like they were taken right from the pages of my journal, and tears flow from my eyes and my heart is moved to worship the Lord.

I've had Dear God on repeat for the past few hours, and the gratefulness that has flooded my heart is completely inexplicable.  My spirit is filled to the brim, and at this very moment my cup is running over.

I wish I could explain it, but all I can say is that I'm SO thankful for my life...

Today, I just want to share the lyrics to this heart-gripping song with you, and encourage you to give the Lord thanks and praise for YOUR life. 

It may not be what you envisioned it to be.

It may be tough, and filled with trials.

It may be full of hurt and pain.

It may not seem to make much sense.

But you know what? It could be worse.  And no matter what your life has been, or is right now, the Lord has always been with you...keeping you from being consumed, giving up, and going crazy. And He will continue to do so, and carry you to your place of purpose and destiny.

For that alone, you should be thankful for your life.

Take a listen to the song, and let the words posted below penetrate your heart.

It feels so good to make it this far
And I didn't think I could take it so long
There were days I wanted to quit
I said surely this is it
But I held on
And I watched as so called friends turned and walk away
It hurt so much I didn't have words to say
But even when my day turns to night and nothin seems just right
Lord I thank You for, for my life

For my life, Lord I thank You
For every victory in You I've seen
And all the moments I know it was You who kept me
So I thank You for, for my life

And I watched you take my family from there to here
And when times where a little rough God I know You were near
And the moments I thought I'd fail I was reminded of your nails
So I held on
And if I never live to see another day
There is nothing I would change or take away

I've had so many ups
That they far out way my downs
Lord I thank You for my life

I realized some didn't make it...
I could've been one of the ones who lost my way
And there was times Lord I know I almost went crazy
But I'm still here, with my life

It may not be all that I hoped for
And every dream has not yet been realized
And to see your face one day God
I know it's all gonna be worth it

So I thank You
Thank You for every mountain, every valley,  God every thing You brought me through
Thank You!
I know I know it was You
Just wanna take the time to say thank You Jesus for my life
