Delectable Dee

How can I say thanks
for the things You have done for me?
Things so undeserved,
yet You gave to prove Your love for me;
the voices of a million angels
could not express my gratitude.
All that I am and ever hope to be,
I owe it all to Thee.

To God be the glory,
to God be the glory,
to God be the glory
for the things He has done.
With His blood He has saved me,
with His power He has raised me;
to God be the glory
for the things He has done.

Just let me live my life,
let it pleasing, Lord to Thee,
and if I gain any praise,
let it go to Calvary.


I'm not sure who wrote or sang this song first but it's really beautiful. So much to be thankful for, so many things I've carelessly taken for granted...I owe it all to God.

Everything I do, be it the impossible perfection of every unattainable good deed and intentions will never ever amount to anything more than the nothing that they all are and ever will be.

For the love overflowing and strong, it broke through time just to bless our lost souls, for the mercies unfailing and faithful, the grace beautiful and undeserved, the life of abundance and love, the friendship, family and the gift of music, the magnificent beauty of words, the rich and heart-felt laughter all melodic and sublime, the radiant breathing poetry of him, a fraction of heaven too grand and breath taking to embrace, and oh, the love. A lifetime of praise and adoration can never fully express my utmost gratitude for the undeserved love. For heaven and salvation, for truth and repentance, for forgiveness and unmerited faithfulness. 

May this life not shame You, may everything I do bring glory to You. May this life be a living testament to Your unfailing grace and mercy so that people may come to the knowledge of Your saving grace. May You bless other people through me and the life I live and that I won't cause pain to people around me.
