This Hunt for Grace-Gifts

Today I start with One Thousand Gifts, #474, and it is the very words from these Scripture verses...
"Who am I, my Master God, and what is my family, that you have brought me to this place in life? But that's nothing compared to what's coming, for you've also spoken of my family far into the future, given me a glimpse into tomorrow, my Master God! What can I possibly say in the face of all this? You know me, Master God, just as I am. You've done all this not because of who I am but because of who you are—out of your very heart!—but you've let me in on it.

~ King David's Prayer, from 2 Samuel 7:18-21 (The Message)
This hunt for grace-gifts... it is life-changing, it is addicting {in a good way!}, it is wonderful!  And, so the hunt continues with...

  1. It amazed me last week that I actually needed to STOP and recognize God's provision! Thank goodness He opened my eyes to even the littlest things!

  2. I came to get something good from your list – something I needed – and I found it. This was perfect: ~ Prayers for a friend going through a tough life-season. (because you can never underestimate the power of a prayer. Our Lord likes it when we pray for each other. There is a difference when you’re being prayed for – more strength, more courage, more God.)

    Thank you for this. God bless you and keep you – and all of yours.

  3. Such a beautiful list today! And I loved that passage of Scripture that you posted, too. I think my favorite today was the prayers for a friend and then a chance to help them, too. Putting legs on your prayers, that's the way I see it! Beautiful! Thank yo so much for sharing your list! I was so blessed!

  4. great list! Michael W Smith is one of our all time favorite artists! That song is so beautiful! :)
