His Gifts, Beyond Measure

Such beautiful words to think on during this month of Love, and each day. 
Beautiful words to soak into our souls, and fill us up.
Read them slowly; read them often.
Rephrase them into a prayer of thanks to God.

All praise to God,
the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing
in the heavenly realms
because we are united with Christ.

Even before He made the world
God loved us and chose us in Christ
to be holy and faultless in His eyes.

God decided in advance
to adopt us into His own family,
by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ.
This is what He wanted to do
and it gave Him great pleasure.

So we praise God for the glorious grace
He has poured out on us
who belong to His dear Son.

He is so rich in kindness and mercy
that He purchased our freedom
with the blood of His Son
and forgave our sins.

He has showered His kindness on us,
along with all wisdom and understanding.

(Ephesians 1:3-8 NLT)

Thanking God for His gifts of grace and mercy, kindness, wisdom, and ... every spiritual blessing. And for the rest and peace that He provides, refreshing us and filling us up. For the beauty of His creation as my hubby and I spend a few days of retreat on beautiful Amelia Island ... all a gift from Him, and from my brothers & sisters (in-law), as a thank-you for the care we have given our father in a difficult time during the past months.

And praying these words for you ...
that you will be filled up with His Love today.
