The Power of Praise Devotional - Saturday 4th November 2017

"You Waited" by Travis Greene

Throughout this worship month, there has been a growing gratitude in my heart. I am so thankful to be where I am and to be part of our church family, but even more, I'm just so full of gratitude once again to Jesus - for the cross. 

Many of you may know my testimony. There was a dark time in my life where I had my back turned to God. My deepest regret in life is that I didn't turn to God sooner, and my greatest gift is that God waited for me - He didn't turn away, not for one moment. The shame that I once knew as my best friend is now incinerated and there is now no mark remaining on me. The dark pain and hopelessness is defeated and He has given me life, joy and family. 

I am so thankful for our church family and to God I give my life, my heart, my everything with a renewed spirit of gratitude. 

Do you know what God has done for you? 

I'd encourage you today to thank God for everything He has led you through and also to strengthen your prayers and belief for those that have yet to know God around you. God's heart is that none should perish. May His loving kindness and patient endurance continually inspire hope and faith in us.
