God is Making Me More


Expressing sincere appreciation to God and to others for the ways that they have benefited my life.

Having a due sense of benefits; kindly disposition toward one from whom a favor has been received; willing to acknowledge and repay benefits; as a grateful heart.
Webster's 1st ed., 1828

Giving expressions of appreciation that will honor the design of God

Paying my debt of love out of the firstfruits of all my increase

Multiplying the ministry of those who have given to me

Accepting difficulties as part of God's loving provision

Letting others know by my words and actions how they have benefitted my life.  I Corinthians 4:7

A constant appreciation for the gifts of God and others gives me great hope.

Lamentations 3:21 This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
22 It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed,
     because His compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness.
24 The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in Him.

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
-- Romans 8:28-29

O how love I Thy Law! it is my meditation all the day. Thou through Thy Commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies. I have more understanding than all my teachers: for Thy Testimonies are my meditation.
-- Psalm 119:97

This isn't that New Age "Positive Thinking" stuff, is it??
