A thankful heart

Hearing people thank God for His blessings and what He's done for them has always made me wonder if we would still be thanking & praising Him had things gone very differently. It kind of doesn't sit well with me, for some reason.

But having had a lot of cause to be thankful recently, I realised that for me the thankfulness springs from a knowledge, not just that God has been good to me, but that He has been so much more gracious to me than I deserve.

It is not that I would not praise Him had He not helped me, but more that I am amazed at His help and His gifts: the depth and breadth of it, truly "immeasurably more than all I could ever ask or imagine".
