Thankful Poem

Thankful

Lord, I am thankful
for so many things.
You gave me new life
of which my soul now sings.

I am closer to going home
with each breath.
On my final day – eternal life
through your death.

Thankful

Lord, I am thankful
for so many things.
I can trust you each day
no matter what trouble it brings.

When I am overcome
and my soul in despair.
You do not let me go
Your saving hand is there.

Thankful

Lord, I am thankful
for so many things.
Until I reach Your presence
You keep me on eagles’ wings.

I do not deserve this blessed life
it is not what I’ve sown.
Yet, You have blessed me in all things
through Christ alone.

Thankful

Lord, I am thankful
for so many things.
My precious joint heir of grace
symbolized by our rings.

She is my bride, my crown
in this life ’til the end.
Your grace has chosen
my wife, helper, lover, best friend.

Thankful

Lord, I am thankful
for so many things.
To be the brother of
the Lord of Lords and King of Kings.

Repay You I cannot
and that is not required.
Blessed to glorify You with my life
so that You are admired.

Thankful

Lord, I am thankful
for innumerable things.

Thank you for this timely post. I am learning that an attitude of gratitude, focusing on what I have rather than lamenting on what is not yet manifesting in my life, results in good fruit that benefits me and all around me! Spiritual warfare is important but an important compliment is a life of thanksgiving and praise.
