What am I thankful for this Thanksgiving Day?

God’s Holiness ... which showed me my sin;

God’s Nearness ... who heard my cry;

God’s Forgiveness ... who cleansed my sins;

God’s Goodness ... who gave me a new beginning;

God’s Greatness ... who has made beauty from my ashes;

God’s Loving-Kindness ... who blesses me in spite of myself;

God’s Faithfulness/Truthfulness ... who restored my mind and never fails me.

God’s Uniqueness ... There is none other who has all these traits, though there are many deceivers who claim them.

I have tasted of the Lord’s Goodness and Greatness towards me
and found Him to be Faithfully True;
He satisfies all my longings.
