I am the candle of the Lord,
And truth and love more powerful than sword
O fan the flame, its single gleam diffuse,
And let my spirit be the light that you can use.
I am the candle of the Lord!

I read somewhere recently that “the candle is a symbol of the spirit of man“. To be honest I didn’t really get that when I read it. However having thought about it a bit more I realised that we are probably meant to symbolise the unlit candle, as a candle that hasn’t been lit is not fulfilling it’s purpose, just as when we don’t have God in our life, we are incomplete and will not be fulfilling our purpose in life.

Without God we cannot fulfil our true purpose, so let God into your life and let His spirit give you the power to fulfil your purpose in life.

James 1:17 (Good News Bible)

Every good gift and every perfect present comes from heaven; it comes down from God, the Creator of the heavenly lights, who does not change or cause darkness by turning.

Everything good that happens to you, your friends and  your family, is because of God. God sends us gifts in the form of people, situations, opportunities, knowledge and ideas all because He loves us and will do all He can to help and guide us.

Don’t get complacent about everyday things and activities, by forgetting to say thank you to God for all He provides for us. Always remember God loves you and will do all He can to help you.

Ever wondered just how much we should thank God for all He provides for us and all He does for us?

Well just last night I found myself considering that question. So what were my conclusions?

My conclusion was that we can never thank God too much for all He has done for us, and all He continues to do for us! Whether we thank God once a week, once a day, or a hundred times a day, it will never be enough to truly thank God for everything.

You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks for ever (Psalm 30:11-12 NIV).

For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. (Ephesians 1:15-16 NIV).

So if we can never say thank you enough to God, how do we thank Him?

We serve Him and do His will…that’s all He asks of us!

How Could I Ever Say Thank You by Kathryn Scott
 
How could I ever say thank You
When the whole of this life’s not enough
Though I offer each breath back in worship
It never could match Your great love
So great are Your ways
Such encompassing grace
Love that reaches beyond each defense
Your mercy disarms the most broken of hearts
Such complete and profound faithfulness
How could I thank You
How could I ever repay You
When You laid aside Heaven for me
You came to the earth its Creator
Incarnate to set sinners free
 
I love You Lord
I love You Lord
I love You Lord 
I love you Lord
