Great Things!

“Return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath done unto thee. And he went his way, and published throughout the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him.”
– Luke 8:39 KJV

To God Be The Glory

To God be the glory, great things He hath done,
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
And opened the life gate that all may go in.

Chorus:
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the people rejoice!
Oh, come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory, great things He hath done.

Oh, perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,
To every believer the promise of God;
The vilest offender who truly believes,
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.

Great things He hath taught us, great things He hath done,
And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
But purer, and higher, and greater will be
Our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see
– To God Be The Glory, hymn lyrics by Frances J. Crosby

My loving and wonderful God, You deserve to be given praise and glory every single hour of the day! Great things You have done for me! My Jesus hath done great things for me! And every single one of those acts of love, protection, mercy, salvation and becoming the parts of me that You have created me to be deserve to be published so that ALL may know they were done… and are possible for them too! Thank You for such loving encouragement where there should be conviction even now, and truthfully there is.
I fail to tell so much of Your great things in fear of what man may think, in fear of disgracing You, and sometimes in purely selfish reasons. Please forgive me.

Holy Spirit, help me to be more faithful in publishing for my Lord of the great things He hath done for me! Jesus paid such a price for my voice. Help me to lift it up… in ink… in type… in speaking… in shouting… in singing.

To God be the glory! ❤
Great things He hath done… for me! 🙂

    1. PTL! That is a good song! And a good declaration! You are. It’s the most amazing thing how it’s always something about HIM that helps u, even when it’s our fault, or our problem, He is so faithful to remind us we need Him, and that He LOVES that. Me and God love you, Tosin!

    1. PTL! Everything about Him is so encouraging! ❤ I love the verse and song too. He is so loving to remind us of how great He is, and that He wants us to share those things with others, even when it tells of the ugly parts of our lives… or even the ugly part of us. God is glorified by making ALL things beautiful… including His children! Each one of us! ❤
      Me and God love you, Melissa!
