I am embarrassingly late responding to this 1 Grateful Person Tag for which Vicklea so graciously tagged me! My apologies Vickie.. and thank you so much at the same time. I appreciate you. Please everyone, visit Vickie’s blog and be blessed!
Please also visit Matt at Jesusluvsall – who created and started this Tag. The intent of this Tag is for all of us to share what we are grateful to Jesus for and to give Him the recognition He deserves.
Here are the guidelines:
- Share what you are grateful to Jesus for
- Share a passage from the Bible about gratitude that means something to you
- Tag whomever you wish
- Please share a link to the person who tagged you and to the original post by Matt
- Use any picture in your post that expresses gratitude
- Share the intro…
The 1 Grateful Person Tag is based on Luke 19 and the account of Jesus with the 1 out of 10 lepers he healed who came back to thank Him. Let us aspire to be like the 1 who thanked Jesus and not the 9 who did not.
For what am I grateful to Jesus?
Above all, I am grateful for a changed life. I was an unrecognizably different person when He found me. So undeserving of His love, grace, and mercy, but he pursued me relentlessly and turned my world right side up. He literally rescued me from a life not worth living. I am forever grateful to Him and His radical love for me. I honestly don’t know where I would be today without Him. Or if I would be at all.
My Gratitude photo and passage from the Bible:
I waited patiently for the Lord;
he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear the Lord
and put their trust in him.
