YOU LOAD 16 TONS AND WHAT DO YOU GET?
The rest of the words to that song are: ANOTHER DAY OLDER AND DEEPER IN DEBT. 1 Chronicles 29:14-17, "...Everything comes from YOU, and we have given only what comes from YOUR hand ...our days on earth are like a shadow..." I cannot even fantom my debt to GOD when I give thanks! Thanks for not living in a hell that I cannot imagine, how can I truly give thanks? It is because GOD gave it as a gift (no paybacks, just love HIM) for GOD looks at the integrity of our heart in our prayers and actions. It is not my feeble failing time after time, it is my heart "hating" the sin within me that does not glorify HIM. It is the integrity of the heart, whether it is living, praying, tithing, or giving thanks. You see, the more I meditate upon the mercy of GOD the more I realized I have no idea what HE has done for me. So I give thanks for what little I do know and especially what I don't know! YES, ANOTHER DAY OLDER BUT NOT DEEPER IN DEBT, BECAUSE IT'S ALL HIS (INCLUDING ME) ANYWAY!
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
