Grateful

October 5 // 1 Corinthians 8:20-21

Scripture
Luke 17:15-19
One of them, when he realized that he was healed, turned around and came back, shouting his gratitude, glorifying God. He kneeled at Jesus' feet, so grateful. He couldn't thank him enough—and he was a Samaritan.
Jesus said, "Were not ten healed? Where are the nine? Can none be found to come back and give glory to God except this outsider?" Then he said to him, "Get up. On your way. Your faith has healed and saved you."

Observation
The man was hoping to be healed knowing Jesus is the healer, and when it happened he was grateful. Not just cause he was healed, but because he was free from illness. He didn't know what else to do, but to praise God with everything inside of him.
Application
I've been set free. Everyday I look at my life and realize how blessed I am. Even when I complain for a moment I stop and think where I'm at. How grateful I need to be. How mush my father loves me. How favored I am. Not from arrogance, but from the perspective of a son, who knows how much he let his father down, and how many people could have what I have and deserve what I don't, but yet he still chose me. I'm so grateful. I just wanna thank Him every moment of my life, and express my love to Him with everything I do cause He's the reason I am what I am today. His grace and Mercy has set me free, and no matter how hard things get I'll never go back to where I was cause I know how good He is.
Prayer
Lord in my life in my actions in my words I want your love to be expressed. It is your love that brings me joy and the gratefulness of my heart that'll express the way of Yours. Lord I'm so thankful for everything you've done. I wish I can express, but like Your love father there's not enough I can do to show you. You just know. No matter how many tears I cry, how many times I laugh, how many circles I dance, or how high I lift my hands, physically or emotionally I can't express my gratefulness, but in my heart Lord you see it. In that I know you ubderstand. I love you Lord. I will not stop praising you!
