My heart is filled with thankfulness

I have lived long enough to know that thankfulness is not something that everyone can "feel" all of the time. But by the grace of God, even when circumstances are not as we would like or when our hearts are grieving or when we can't "conjure up" thankfulness, God is able to put thankfulness in our heart and helps us to call to mind things that we can be thankful for. This song written by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend and beautifully sung by Kristyn Getty is a reminder of how God does that for us.

My heart is filled with thankfulness
To Him who bore my pain;
Who plumbed the depths of my disgrace
And gave me life again;
Who crushed my curse of sinfulness
And clothed me in His light
And wrote His law of righteousness
With pow'r upon my heart.

My heart is filled with thankfulness
To Him who walks beside;
Who floods my weaknesses with strength
And causes fears to fly;
Whose ev'ry promise is enough
For ev'ry step I take,
Sustaining me with arms of love
And crowning me with grace.

My heart is filled with thankfulness
To him who reigns above,
Whose wisdom is my perfect peace,
Whose ev'ry thought is love.
For ev'ry day I have on earth
Is given by the King;
So I will give my life, my all,
To love and follow him.
