My sister in law quoted my 5 year old niece’s prayer the other day, and she said “Dear God, Thank you for being perfect for me.” Whoa! Out of the mouth’s of babes. What a profound statement. I’m thankful for that too. I am certainly not perfect, but I am grateful for a God who is. I know that I am flawed and I am okay with that because I have a God who’s love is unconditional. Psalms 18:30 AND 2 Samuel 22:31 say, “As for God, his way is perfect: The Lord’s word is proven true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge to him.” I’m grateful for his grace and his mercy everyday. I also know that God’s grace covers what is unperfect about me. God says in His word, “‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV) Happy Sunday!
What are you grateful for today?
