Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. (NLT)

James 1:17

Perhaps you’ve heard the saying, “Your life is a gift from God. What you do with it is your gift to God!” It’s the truth. Take some time to reflect on everything God has already given you. Do you have the gift of sight, speech, hearing and touch? Have you experienced laughter and joy and peace and comfort? Do you have people to love who love you back? All these wonderful gifts came from a Father who loves you perfectly. So now it’s your turn. What can you give to Him? Only one thing — your life in obedience to His will. With your complete surrender you become open to His greatest blessing and a life filled with wonders. You simply cannot out-give God… but it’s worth a try!

• I thank God for all He has done for me and I offer Him my life.
• By faith I receive the full blessing of God that I might bless others.
• I ask the Holy Spirit to keep me ever mindful of all that God has given me.
