Colossians 3:15-17 (CEV)

Each one of you is part of the body of Christ, and you were chosen to live together in peace. So let the peace that comes from Christ control your thoughts. And be grateful. Let the message about Christ completely fill your lives, while you use all your wisdom to teach and instruct each other. With thankful hearts, sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God. Whatever you say or do should be done in the name of the Lord Jesus, as you give thanks to God the Father because of him.

“And be grateful” – What a phrase! What an instruction!

But here’s the question, are you grateful to God for choosing you?

Do you thank God regularly for choosing you, and for being in control of your life?

Say thanks to God today for all he does for you each day.

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
