I danced and danced and danced, and then danced some more. Those that know me quite well, know that I LOVE TO DANCE! :-)! At the end of the day, my feet were pleading for release from the dance floor!
This morning I woke up and my legs felt like I had just run the marathon. My feet were aching, from all the dancing! And then I though, "Lord I am really grateful and thankful for my legs, my feet!" Imagine that!!!
But yes, today, in and with everything, daddy, I really do give thanks as commanded in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 " in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." . I am thankful for my legs, my feet, even though they hurt because I have been dancing for hours, I am so very thankful I have them.
I am so very, very thankful and grateful for my legs and feet because, since I was born until now, I have not broken any bones in them. I am thankful because I recognise, just as the Psalmist in Psalm 139:14, that I am wonderfully made, for my legs and feet are perfect, and function just how you intended them to. Psalm 139:14 "I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well."
I am thankful because, you see, there are people who would so desperately love to dance, but they can't because they have no legs!
I am thankful because some have legs, but have no feet!
I am thankful because some have legs and feet, but they don't function as they should!
I am thankful because, some have legs and feet that function, but they cannot dance!
So, today dear Lord, I come to you with my box full of thanksgiving for my legs, my feet, even though they hurt from all that dancing and jumping, I am so very, very thankful and grateful for them! I am really grateful father. Daddy, I pray my box of thanksgiving, that I lay at your feet, emits a smelling fragrance in thy sight. Be glorified Lord.
Beautiful People, what are you thankful to the Lord for this very day?
Have a wonderful day living out the realities of God's will in your life; whilst making Him famous along the way.
