My Heart is Filled with Thankfulness 1

In recent months we have seen Jonathan walking around with with sermons plugged into his brain in every spare moment he can get...being our computer /technology expert, he has figured out how to down load what he wants and has proceeded to listen to all of John Pipers sermons from last year, many of John MacArthur's, and some from Al Martin and some from Timothy Keller, NY. At one stage he was averaging 3 a day. Above he uses ear muffs to block out our noisy family sounds, as he listens to a sermon but he still manages to share chocolate biscuits with his littlest brother!

Jonathan has chosen without any direct influence from us, to profess his faith through baptism on Sunday, 14th February. He has written out the story of his faith on his own as well, and it has totally blown me away. He is thinking of starting his own blog, so maybe he will share it with the world one day. He has chosen the following to be his song of rejoicing on Sunday, it tells a lot of how he feels about life!

Success for me is measured by one's desire to I rejoice to see this young man's heart full of love for God and others! And I pray my son would know God's peace and joy throughout his life!

My Heart Is Filled with thankfulness:By Stuart Townend and Keith Getty
(Here it is sung on utube for you! )

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 with 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 every promise is enough
For every 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 every thought is love
For every day I have on earth
Is given by the King
So I will give my life my all
To love and follow Him
