11-26-15 Give Thanks

children laughing

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

There’s always something to be grateful for

No matter what the circumstances are.

A hooligan may muscle through your door;

It’s better than the scourge next door by far.

Give thanks for every breath that’s given you;

God’s grace alone is reason to rejoice.

A heart of gratitude brings you into

A place where you can better hear God’s voice.

If you believe that things can’t get much worse,

You’re looking at the darkness, not the light.

Thank God that you have eyes to read this verse.

If blind thank God someone this poem recites.

In everything give thanks; this is God’s will.

It draws you closer to the Savior still.

11-27-14 Thanksgiving

gratitude

There isn’t anything too large or small

That you can’t take up with the Lord in prayer.

Just lift your voice to heaven and then call;

He knows your voice, and He is always there.

Does He not manage all the universe?

Does He not give you life and all you need?

Above all else when you in prayer converse

Give thanks to God, with gratitude concede.

Don’t be afraid to say what’s on your mind;

He knows what’s in your heart and loves you so.

In all your supplications be so kind

To give Him gratitude and let it show.

Thanksgiving day is every day you’re here;

Be grateful in your prayers all through the year.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Be careful (anxious) for nothing;

but in every thing by prayer and supplication

with thanksgiving let your requests be made known

unto God.

Philippians 4:6 KJV
