Thank You

When I rose this morning I took time out to thank God for his grace and mercy that allowed me to see a new day.  When was the last time you prayed and did not ask God for anything, but just thanked Him?  We are so busy with our hands in the give me position that we never close them and say God I thank you for all you have done.   As Jesus travelled the dusty roads through Samaria and Galilee on His way to Jerusalem, there were ten men with leprosy who asked Jesus to have mercy on them.  They never asked for healing but mercy. Jesus did for them what they did not ask.  He said go show yourself to the priest.  On the way to the temple they noticed they were healed and one returned to give Jesus thanks.  Have you thanked God today for life, health, and strength? Did you take the time and thank Jesus for saving you from a miserable life of sin? While in a lifestyle that made us feel unworthy, not good enough, God gave His Son, who gave His life that we might be saved.  There are no more excuses for sin.  We have so much to be thankful for, so do not be like the nine, return and say Lord I thank you!
