So Good to Me

I sing in the Praise Choir at our church and last night we spent some time singing "requests". After we prepared for Sunday, we had some fun singing our favorites. I wanted to share the lyrics to one in particular.

God Has Been so Good to Me

God has been so good to me

God has been so good to me

I've done nothing to deserve

All the blessings poured on me

Yet my God has been good to me

So with every breath within me I will praise Him

The ever faithful One who gave new life to me

Though the journey has been long

And the road sometimes gets rough

He has always been right beside me guiding me

It's a simple, yet powerful song. We don't "deserve." I recently heard someone say that "deserve" is a dangerous word. Yet God blesses us with way more than we can ever dream we would have in our lives.

Have you thought about the things in your life you have been blessed with? It puts everything into perspective.

I have a friend from church with no insurance and no money who is extremely sick. Watching her struggle just breaks my heart. But she is one of the first people to speak of God's blessings and glory.

What are you taking for granted today? Have you thanked God lately?

Today I Am Thankful For:

1. great music

2. bike rides

3. catalogs

4. rubber bands

5. big t-shirts
