Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with _____________ Colossians 2:7

What will you overflow with?   I wasn’t  sure what I expected,  but when I read the last word of the verse, I said, oh, yes, well,  that’s right,  but it was a bit of a surprise.  Perhaps, I expected a blessing, something for my growing my roots down deep within Him and building my life on Him.  But when I read thankfulness, I had to ask for forgiveness because I was looking for a blessing when I should have just plain done it,  and, of course, I should be thankful for it.  A lot of times there are surprise endings in the Bible because we are thinking with our old selves.   At least I think that is why I was surprised this time.   What did you think went in the blank?   What verses have surprised you?   Looking forward to  your comments.
