10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 6: Thankful for God’s Love and Kindness

Jeremiah 31:3

Verse of the Day:  Jeremiah 31:3

The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.

I’m thankful for God’s love and kindness. To be honest, I’m not always easy to love. I have good days and I have bad days and sometimes I feel moody and just want to be left alone. These are things I’m working on with the help of the Lord. But, I thank my God that no matter how I feel, His love for me never changes. It’s not a temporary love, but one that keeps on proving over and over how much He loves me. God confirms His love for me daily as He forgives, protects, provides, heals and demonstrates His continued grace, mercy and power in my life. God’s magnificent love is sovereign, unchangeable, everlasting and nothing can ever separate me or you from His great love for us. God’s love is life changing and when you begin to believe that He loves you, He always has and He always will you’ll no longer be the same. So, today I just want to thank God for loving me and always being there for me.
