The Cornucopia of Contentment ~

Thanksgiving is the time,
of finding true contentment
a time to praise God . . .
without any resentment.

A time to discover,
the secret of gratitude
a time to let thanksgiving
become our daily attitude.

Thanksgiving is the time,
of finding satisfaction
a time for appreciation
no matter our condition.

It’s a time to be thankful,
to God for everything
a time to be grateful
for whatever He may bring.

Thanksgiving’s a cornucopia,
of having true contentment
for all those who on God . . .
are genuinely dependent!

~~~~~

Philippians 4:11-13

Not that I speak in respect of want:
for I have learned, in whatsoever
state I am, therewith to be content.

I know both how to be abased,
and I know how to abound:
every where and in all things
I am instructed both
to be full and to be hungry,
both to abound and to suffer need.

I can do all things through
Christ which strengtheneth me.

A Thankful Heart ~

A thankful heart,
starts with a song
sings its gratitude
all the day long.

It knows God,
is in control
for He reigns
in its soul.

A grateful heart,
starts with praise
expresses it thanks
all of its days.

It believes God,
is its creator
it knows there is
no One greater.

A thankful heart,
sings all day long
to its God . . .
who makes it strong!

For our heart shall

Rejoice, Rejoice In the Lord ~

Rejoice, rejoice in the Lord,
be glad and shout out with joy
for He will uplift you . . .
and your doubts He’ll destroy.

For those who trust in the Lord,
haven’t anything to fear
because they know to them
He is always close and near.

Rejoice all who love the Lord,
with delight give Him your praise
His power and strength is yours
when the shield of faith you raise.

Stand up against the wicked one,
don’t believe in his lies
for God blesses all who trust
with a heart that is wise.

Rejoice, rejoice in the Lord,
and again I say rejoice . . .
lift up your jubilant praise
let God hear your joyous voice!

Father, How Can I Show My Gratitude ~

Father, how can I show my gratitude,
my gratefulness for all You’ve done
how can I show my thankfulness
for the eternal gift of Your Son?

What can I do to repay You,
for the kindness You’ve shown me
what can I give back to You
so my appreciation You can see?

How can I render my thanksgiving,
the sense of my true gratification
how can I ever prove to You
the full delight of my satisfaction?

Father, how can I show my gratitude,
my gratefulness for all You do
how can I show my thankfulness
if I am not always praising You?

~~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:17

And whatsoever ye do
in word or deed, do all

A time of thankfulness,
a time for gratitude
a time to consider . . .
a new daily attitude.

Not just for the season,
but all the year through
Lord may we be grateful
for all for us You do.

A time of blessings,
a time for application
a time to show God
our heartfelt adoration.

A hourly appreciation,
for all and every thing
Lord may we be thankful
for whatever You bring.

A time of gratitude,
a time for thankfulness
a time to bless God with . . .
seamless gratefulness!

Gratitude Believes ~

Gratitude believes God,
is in absolute control
it trusts His provision
with a meek, humble soul.

Gratitude shows God,
how much it is thankful
daily it has an attitude
of being heartily grateful.

Gratitude has true rest,
peace and contentment
for what life may bring
it holds no resentment.

Gratitude finds real joy,
upon the dawn of day
it shows God adoration
whatever He sends its way.

Gratitude if full of praise,
thankfulness and gladness
gratitude rejoices . . .
over God and His goodness!

Thanksgiving Time ~

Thanksgiving time,
again is drawing near
a time to let God . . .
our gratitude hear.

But we need to go past,
just this time of the year
and make sure God always
our thanksgiving hears.

Thanksgiving time,
isn’t just for the holidays
for a grateful heart . . .
is thankful for all its days.

For no matter the season,
to God we must raise
continual offerings
of our heartfelt praise.

Thanksgiving isn’t the only time,
for us to be thankful
it is the daily fruit . . .
of those who are truly grateful!

~~~~~~~~~

for Your Son
how He made me
with Him one.

I am thankful,
for the grace given
so that this sinner
could be forgiven.

I thank You God,
for being fair and just
so that in You
I may forever trust.

I am grateful,
to You I can pray
so that I can know
the Truth and Way.

I thank you God,
for mercy evermore
how You always have
for me more in store!

Truly Thankful ~

When we’re truly thankful,
in and for all things . . .
we will begin to realize
the joy to God it brings.

For, whatever might be,
our personal situation
He still wants us to show
to Him our adoration.

When we are truly thankful,
wherever in life we are
we’ll begin to understand
God from us is never far.

For, when we’re grateful,
no matter our positions
we’ll begin to see God’s love
comes without conditions.

When we are truly thankful,
despite of our circumstance
it’s because we know with God
nothing comes by happenstance!

For our heart shall rejoice in him,

Bold Praise ~

I can’t carry a tune,
don’t have a great voice
but for my Savior
I still sing and rejoice.

I don’t know the melody,
haven’t got me the ear
but it doesn’t stop God
my praises to hear.

I can’t read the music,
don’t recognize the chords
but I still carry on
worshiping my Lord.

I don’t have the rhythm,
can’t understand the beat
but I keep on rejoicing
at my Savior’s feet.

I can’t carry a tune,
a note I can’t hold
but, my praise to God
is still always bold!

Sing unto him,
sing psalms unto him:
talk ye of all his

The Sacrifice of Thanksgiving ~

The sacrifice of Thanksgiving,
was made once and for all
it was always in God’s plans . . .
ever since mankind took a fall.

The offering of God’s peace,
came to us through His Son
as Jesus sacrificed His life . . .
for each and every one.

To have a thankful heart,
one must be with God united
in His ways and to His truths
one must be joyfully delighted.

To give thanks to God always,
and for all things . . . .
only comes when we accept
the gift that salvation brings.

For the good and the bad,
will only work together
when to God’s love and will
our lives we totally surrender.

The sacrifice of Thanksgiving,
came when God’s mercy sent
to the world a Savior . . .
now it’s up to us to repent!

~~~~~~~

Leviticus 7:12

“If he offer it for a thanksgiving,
then he shall offer with the sacrifice
of thanksgiving unleavened cakes mingled
with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed
with oil, and cakes mingled with oil,
of fine flour, fried.”

Luke 22:17-20

“And he took the cup,
and gave thanks, and said,
Take this, and divide it
among yourselves:

For I say unto you
I will not drink of the
fruit of the vine,
until the kingdom
of God shall come.

And he took bread,
and gave thanks,
and brake it,
and gave unto them,
saying, This is my body
which is given for you:
this do in remembrance of me.

Likewise also
the cup after supper,
saying, This cup is
the new testament
in my blood, which is
shed for you.”

Grow Your Gratitude ~

Grow your gratitude,
it will increase your praise
then what comes your way
you will not be phased.

For God wants us to be,
for all things grateful
and then our praise to Him
will become a daily staple.

Grow your thankfulness,
it won’t disappoint you
then whatever God sends
you’ll be able to get through.

For God desires of us,
our earnest of devotions
not just the kind we give
when going through the motions.

Grow your thanksgiving,
gratefulness you will raise
so no matter what life brings
you’ll still offer God your praise!

You choose to pursue!

I am So Thankful ~

God, I am so thankful,
there is no other like You
I am so grateful
for all that You do.

You are wise and fair,
loving and kind
You bring sweet peace
to both heart and mind.

Lord, I am so thankful,
there is no one besides You
I am so grateful
You always remain true.

You are a just and loyal,
holy and divine
You provide wisdom
when ears are inclined.

Father, I am so thankful,
that You are You . . .
for there’s no one else
who can do what You do!

Good Night Lord ~

Good night Lord,
it’s been a pleasant day
walking along with You
on the narrow way.

Thank You for being with me,
for holding my hand
for lifting me up
when I thought I couldn’t stand.

Good night Lord,
this day was beautiful
the grace You gave me
was more than bountiful.

Thank You for blessing me,
with each daily provision
for keeping me always
right within Your vision.

Good night lord,
let’s do this again tomorrow
if from You another day . . .
will allow me to borrow!

Thankful In Any Circumstance ~

Whatever comes my way,
I take this stance . . .
to be thankful
in every circumstance.

Whenever I am happy,
my praise to God I sing
and I thank Him for . . .
the joy that He brings.

Whenever I have troubles,
I seek Him and I pray
and I thank Him for . . .
the peace on my way.

Whenever I’m hurting,
I trust my pain He’ll relieve
and I thank Him for . . .
the strength to believe.

Whenever I’m doubtful,
I give to Him my fear
and I thank Him for . . .
being close and near.

Regardless of how I feel,
I praise Him in advance
and I thank the Lord . . .
no matter my circumstance!

Our Daily Mission ~

When with God we’re repentant,
and fall under His submission
praise and thanksgiving . . .
will become our daily mission.

For, those who trust God,
know all will be Okay
no matter what may come
or what He sends our way.

When with God we’re humble,
and self-denial is the rule
our thanksgiving for all things
will be our spiritual fuel.

For, those who are hopeful,
know God won’t send anything
that would ever keep them
from Him worshiping.

When with God our attitudes,
are positive and confident
our praise and thanks to Him
will be in our lives, dominate!

Rejoicing Always ~

It’s hard to be rejoicing,
when things aren’t going right
it hard to give God thanks . . .
with so many battles to fight.

It’s hard to see God’s hand,
in the middle of the pain
it hard to be grateful
when all your joy is drained.

But we who have Jesus,
living inside of us
know how important it is
in Him to always trust.

For, to always be rejoicing,
takes prayer continually
and then our thanks to God
will come unceasingly.

It’s hard to be rejoicing,
with all that life brings . . .
but, we know it’s God will
to be thankful for all things!

~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

“Rejoice always,
pray without ceasing,
give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus for you.”

Always Something To Be Thankful For ~

There is always something,
to be thankful for
all you have to do . . .
is be willing to explore.

If you will open up,
your heart and your mind
all kinds of blessings
you will be able to find.

Some are so small,
they don’t get our attention
but, for each of them
God has a good intention.

Some are so obvious,
you don’t need to search far
for everyone can see them
from right where they are.

Whether our blessings
are big or if they are small
we need to be thankful . . .
to God who supplies them all.

Yes, there’s always something,
for us to be thankful for
and we need to be grateful
when God sends us more!

Make a Joyful Noise ~

Come all my friends,
come one and all . . .
let’s gather together
and let our praise fall.

Let’s make a noise,
to God that’s joyful
let’s sing why we are
thankful and hopeful.

Let’s loudly proclaim,
our love for Him
let’s tell why our cups
overflow from the brim

Let’s sing of our salvation,
the Rock of our strength
lets not keep our elation
from others at arms-length.

Come all my friends,
let us all assemble
so to the world . . .
Jesus we may resemble!

A Thankful, Grateful Heart ~

Lord, give me a thankful heart,
one that is appreciative
one that to all Your blessings
is attuned and sensitive.

Let it be a heart,
that sings its daily praise
let it be my heartfelt gratitude
that to You I earnestly raise.

Let me have a heart,
truly thankful for all things
no matter what in my life
You should choose to bring

Let my heart flow with,
the rivers of Your peace
so my appreciation to You
I may continually release.

Lord, give me a thankful heart,
one that is steadily hopeful
let it be the heart of one . . .
who is to You truly grateful!

One Blessed, Single Plateful ~

On Thanksgiving day this year,
before the turkey starts roasting
my thanks, I will be singing
for the dinner I’ll be hosting.

I will set the dining table,
with the gratitude I feel
before anyone comes
to feast upon the meal.

I will spread the hope,
that I’m feeling inside
before I even serve . . .
the food that God supplied.

I will polish up on all,
the reasons I’m thankful
before I even dish up
one blessed, single plateful.

On Thanksgiving day this year,
before the food I present
I will let everyone know . . .
just why I am so content!
