Make my heart remember

Make my heart remember

1 Chronicles 16:34 “Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!” 
 

Some of my favorite worship songs are centered around straight scripture as lyrics and this verse is one that instantly triggers a familiar melody inside my head. I absolutely delight in worship through music. Admittedly, my favorite part of Christian camp during my youth was the concert style worship. It felt like everything else would fade away except for the voice of the singer and the accompanying instruments. It was almost impossible for my brain to concentrate on anything other than the words ~ which were all about God and meant to encourage encounters with Him. Distractions faded away and I was simultaneously so encouraged as I looked around at my peers engaged in similar experiences. 
 

We can’t spend ENOUGH time in gratitude and thanksgiving for our Creator. His character is beyond praiseworthy. The way that He delights in us is incredibly loving. His grace (getting what we don’t deserve) and his mercy (NOT getting what we do deserve) is humbling. He takes care of us and He fights for us. The ultimate sacrifice that He made of His Son Jesus on the cross to save us. My heart overflows.

 

What does gratitude look like for you? I have several friends that keep record of what the Lord has done in their lives in a journal. Because we are a forgetful people, y’all. I’m working on this practice myself because I want to go back and remember the specifics. I know that the Lord has been faithful, kind, generous, gracious, loving, and so much more. Because He has been, I know that He will continue to be! MAKE MY HEART REMEMBER.

Letting go of my “boast list”
Letting go of my “boast list”

April 10, 2024

Turns out that like Paul, I’m not as “good” as my spiritual “boast list” makes me appear. I had misunderstood the beauty of the gospel- that salvation is based solely on the goodness of God, not the goodness of me. It is God’s grace that produces good works in us, not the other way around. Friend, let this truth dissolve any stock we have in our ability to produce a spiritual “boast list.” It’s been a humbling journey to let go of my “boast list,” but the grace of Jesus is so much better to h...
