In The Name of Jesus ~

In The Name of Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I thank God,
for being there
for listening to
my every care.

I thank Him,
for staying true
for lifting me up
when I am blue.

I thank God,
for never leaving
for keeping me
on Him cleaving.

I thank Him,
for mercy anew
for helping me
a day get through.

In Jesus’ name,
I thank God
and give to Him
my heartfelt laud!

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
so God can send us more!

Thankful For the Right Reasons ~

Lord, as I enter into,
the season of Thanksgiving
may I do so without . . .
any qualms or misgivings.

May I be grateful,
for all You’ve given me
especially for the things
I am still yet to see.

May I be satisfied,
with all I have got
may I be content
with what I have not.

May I be appreciative,
for Your every blessing
may I be at peace with . . .
those I’ll not be getting.

Lord, as I enter into,
Thanksgiving’s season
may I be truly thankful
for all the right reasons!

Heartfelt Gratitude

Heartfelt Gratitude ~ CHRISTian poety by deborah ann ~

Lord, may I always have,
an appreciative attitude
one filled with adoration
thanksgiving and gratitude.

May I always be grateful,
whether sick or healthy
may I always be thankful
be I penniless or wealthy.

Lord, may I be thankful,
to You, for all things
happy with the provision
Your daily grace brings.

May I always be glad,
to receive Your benefits
may my praise to You
to the world be evident.

Lord, may I always have,
a heartfelt gratitude . . .
coursing through my life
gushing out in my attitude!

Thankfulness ~

Give Thanks used with permissionIBible Verses

This year I am thankful,
for so many things . . .
but mostly for my faith
the peace that it brings.

I am forever indebted,
for the gift of salvation
how by the grace of Jesus
I’ve eternal redemption.

I am thankful for the truth,
setting me free from sin
I am ever appreciative
for the power I’ve within.

I am full of thankfulness,
for the Life and the Way
I am grateful for the Word
shedding Light on my day.

This year I am thankful.
for so many things . . .
but most of all I’m grateful
for the hope Jesus brings!

Every Day Thanks ~

Give Thanks by Matt Gruber free photo #6710

Thanksgiving Day is upon us,
soon we’ll gather at the table
with family and close friends
to feast on our favorite staples.

We’ll set aside our complaints,
in exchange for gratitude
for everyone, on this one day . . .
puts on a Thanksgiving attitude.

To God we’ll give our thanks,
for family, food and friends
but once the day is over . . .
sadly, our gratitude ends.

We’ll go back to complaining,
to our own self-sufficient way
any gratefulness that we felt . . .
will begin to wither and decay.

Thanksgiving Day is upon us,
soon we’ll gather at the table
and this year I will be praying. . .
gratitude ~ will be a daily staple!

Our Plate of Goodness ~

I love this time of year,
with Thanksgiving just ahead
it reminds me of some facts
in the Bible I have read . . .

In all things be grateful,
let joy and praise flow out of you
for everything be thankful
give God the glory He is due.

Make peacefulness your habitation,
let your gentleness be known
be kind, tender-hearted and forgiving
never be the first to cast a stone.

Extend a hand to the needy,
let charity be your perfect gift
help all those who have not
bring back to God those adrift.

Show others your appreciation,
let them see your gratitude
bless them for their helpfulness
be not selfish in your attitude.

Reach out to the sick and hurting,
let them see Jesus’ true compassion
show all acts of grace and mercy
let not the sun go down on your passion.

Be content with all that you have,
rejoice in whatever is your state
be satisfied with all of the goodness
God places each day on your plate.

In everything be thankful,
let your praise be heard by all
in everything be grateful
let your joy be seen by all!
