LOVE LETTER 3.15 am 
Thy steadfast love extends to the heavens. Appa, I am grateful to you. Song … filling my life with thy loving kindness. I find my peace in the shadow of your wings. I eat my fill from the abundance of your household. Ingratitude. Leaking blessing not that people are not blessed. Talk about gratefulness. Discontentment happens in the heart. Gratefulness is a heart attitude. Godliness with contentment is of great gain. What is contentment the ability to be satisfied full with God’s blessings not considering its magnitude. The problem of Christians is little hearts amidst big balloon blessings. Thy steadfast love – our gratefulness. I saw hands that collected water. 3.45 am

1. Our Gratefulness to God

Scripture 1

  • 3 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
    The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, Psalms 8:3
  • What is man that You are mindful of him,
    And the son of man that You visit him? Psalms 8:4
  • For You have made him a little lower than the angels,
    And You have crowned him with glory and honor. Psalms 8:5

Scripture 2

  • Behold, bless the Lord,
    All you servants of the Lord,
    Who by night stand in the house of the Lord! Psalms 134:1
  • Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, And bless the LordPsalms 134:2

Key Points:

  • to realise that:
    • everything we have has come from God
    • to realise that we cannot live apart from God
    • to realise that our lives are intertwined with God’s
    • to realise that there is no life apart from God

2. What is Ingratitude?

  • Then the whole congregation of the children of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness.  Exodus 16:2
  • And the children of Israel said to them, “Oh, that we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the pots of meat and when we ate bread to the full! For you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this whole assembly with hunger.”  Exodus 16:3

Key Points:

  • when we choose to complaint rather than to be grateful

3. What is Discontentment?

Scripture 3:

  • Now godliness with contentment is great gain. 1 Timothy 6:6
  • For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 1 Timothy 6:7
  • And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. 1 Timothy 6:8
  • But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. 1 Timothy 6:9

Key Points:

  • What is contentment? the ability to be satisfied full with God’s blessings not considering its magnitude.
  • What is discontentment? when we choose to be dissatisfied rather than to be grateful

Dedication Song. 

Capo 2:C

YOUR STEADFAST LOVE

Your steadfast love extends to the heavens
Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds
Your righteousness is like majestic mountains
And your wisdom like the depths of the sea
And you come to me

Filling my heart with your loving kindness
I find my peace in the shadow of your wings
I eat my fill from the abundance of your household
And I drink from the streams of rejoicing

You are my king
You are my king
You are my king
You are my king

Don Moen
