Sticky Note To God ~04.29.22~

Psalm 109:30


My On Going Devotion ~

Lord, may all my days,
I give You praise
may my thanks
to You I raise.

May for all things,
my thanks I give
may it be for You
that I should live.

May all the time,
I worship You
may I be grateful
for all You do.

May my devotion,
be in my attitude
may to You it be
one of gratitude.

Lord, may each new day,
my praise to You I sing
may the fruit of my lips
to You thanksgiving bring!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 13:15

By him therefore let us offer
the sacrifice of praise to God
continually, that is, the fruit of
our lips giving thanks to his name.

Thankful Everyday ~

We don’t need a special day,
to show how we’re thankful
for every day to God . . .
we need to be grateful.

We can come together,
any time of the year
and share the real cause
for our heart’s good cheer.

We can give our thanks,
no matter the season
a special holiday
needn’t be the only reason.

We can enter into,
the gates of thanksgiving
anytime, anywhere
without a single misgiving.

For, God doesn’t care,
when or how we show . . .
our thankfulness to Him
He just wants to know!

~~~~~

Psalm 100:4

“Enter into his gates
with thanksgiving,
and into his courts
with praise:
be thankful unto him,
and bless his name.”

Sing To God Your Praise ~

O, sing of God’s goodness,
sing of His grace . . .
sing about His mercies
for all to embrace.

Sing in the morning,
sing into the night
sing of God’s wonder
sing of His saving light.

Sing to God’s honor,
sing of His name
sing how forever
He’s always the same.

Sing in the storm,
sing in the calm
sing about His peace
sing of His healing balm.

Give God His glory,
give Him your praise
O, sing of the Savior
for you He has raised!

~~~~

Psalm 96:1-3


“O sing
unto the Lord a new song:
sing unto the Lord,all the earth.
Sing unto the Lord,bless his name;
shew forth his salvation
from day to day.
Declare his glory among
the heathen, his wonders
among all people.

I’ll Send to God My Praise ~

I’ll praise God when I’m happy,
I’ll praise Him when I’m sad
I’ll praise God when things go right
I’ll praise Him when they are bad.

I’ll praise God when I’m in pain,
I’ll praise Him when I’m not
I’ll praise Him when I’m elated
I’ll praise Him when I’m fraught.

I’ll praise God when I’m strong,
I’ll praise Him when I’m weak
I’ll praise God when I’m sturdy
I’ll praise Him when I’m meek

I’ll praise God with a smile,
I praise Him through my tears
I’ll praise God when I’m hopeful
I’ll praise Him despite my fears.

I’ll praise God while I’m here,
I’ll praise Him until the end
as long as I have life and breath
my praise to God I will send!

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!

Singing In The Dark ~

It’s easy to sing,
when the day is trouble free
it’s easier to give accolades
to God, when full of glee.

It’s easy to sing,
when all is looking bright
it’s easier to praise God
when bathed in His light.

It’s easy to sing,
when all is going well
it’s easier to let our gratitude
for God, to grow and swell.

It’s easy to sing,
when  happy and content
it’s easier for us to God
our thanksgiving present.

But, they who still sing,
in the darkness of the night
are those who praise God . . .
no matter what’s in their sight!

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!

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!

When My Heart is Troubled ~

When my heart is troubled,
when my mind has cares
I gratefully go to God
with my pleas and prayers.

When my heart is faint,
when my mind has unrest
I pray for God’s peace
upon my first request.

When my heart is heavy,
when my mind has doubt
I pray ceaselessly believing
God will work things out.

When my heart is weary,
when my mind’s full of fear
I pray asking my Father
to drawn me close and near.

When my heart is troubled,
when my mind has cares
at Jesus’ feet I leave them
with my thankful prayers!
