One Thousand Gifts (Continued)

"When all the people say this, they fell prostrate and cried, 'The LORD-He is God! The LORD- He is God'" 
(1 Kings 18:39).

 Dictionary's definition of prostrate: to lay oneself flat on the ground face downward, especially in reverence or submission. 

 I stand in awe of all that God has made and what He has done for me. However, the other day, I fell prostrate before Him and cried to out to Him. I am so thankful for a loving Father who hears my cries, grants forgiveness, and continually shows His love. I am grateful that I can lay everything at the foot of the cross and that He will lavish me with grace, mercy and peace. Thank-you, Father.
