one thousand gifts {#2415-2441}

♪ Well Your remix is so surprising
Like raindrops when the sun is shinin’
It’s beautiful to me
Lord, You
Flip my words and change the tempo
And somehow You just make it simple
So beautiful to sing ♪
{from “Favorite Song” by Toby Mac} 

I’ve been listening to Toby Mac’s new album a lot this past week. I LOVE it! There are so many phrases that just pop out and make you think, such as the lines above. Looking for God’s grace in every area of my life is one of the most common ways He flips my words and changes the tempo.

♪ Imma leave my selfish melodies
Wanna be in Your beautiful symphony ♪
Gratitude is one of the most beautiful melodies in God’s beautiful symphony.
Every note is grace.

Since reading One Thousand Gifts, I started my own journal of grace-gifts God blesses me with every day. I will spare listing all of them here, but I will try to share some of my favorites every Monday.
