Dear Papa, I say A BIG THANK YOU for GROWTH; SPIRITUALLY & in CHARACTER. By your grace and power and through the help of the wonderful teacher - the Holy Spirit, I have come a long way from living a life that is "all about me" to a living a life that is "all about you and your kingdom" . Praise be to you my Father.
I thank you for increase of my knowledge and understanding of the intricacies of your word.
I thank you for the decrease of sinful nature in my life.
I thank you for the increase in my practice of Christ-like qualities that you are building in me.
I thank you for the increase in faith and trust in you, in all things.
I thank you Papa for giving me the desire to continually live my life to imitate Jesus Christ as commanded in 1 Corinthians 11:1, "And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ."
I thank you for continually building in me the Love, joy, peace, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness and self-control, as explained in Galatians 5:22 -23, "But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!"
So today Papa, I thank you for continually growing me in your word, in the knowledge of you and in living my life to emulate Jesus Christ. I thank you for developing the fruit of the Holy Spirit within me. I thank you for continually making me the person you want me to be.
