Lord, Have I Told You ~

Lord, have I told You lately,
how much I love You . . .
have I expressed my thanks
for all for me You do?

Have I uttered my praise,
my thoughts of gratitude
have I demonstrated to You
a grateful attitude?

Have I thanked You,
for the wonders of Your grace
have I said I’m so delighted
to be able to seek your face?

Have I verbalized,
my wholehearted affection
have I been for You
an image of Your reflection?

Lord, have I told You lately,
how much You mean to me . . .
have I conveyed how with You
I can’t hardly wait to be!

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!

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.”

Today’s The Day ~

Today Father,
is a brand new one
a time to be glad
for Your living Son.

A day to rejoice,
for all things new
a day to give . . .
my praise to You.

Today Father,
You have made
for me to remember
the price Jesus paid.

A day to reflect,
on His love and grace
a time before Him
my sin I need to face.

Today Father,
is the day Jesus rose
oh, how glad I am . . .
my heart He knows!

Happy RESURRECTION Day


Adjusting My Armor ~

Sometime my armor,
needs to be adjusted . . .
for with inattentiveness
it starts to get encrusted.

So with the Word of God,
my whole armor I lubricate
and with faithfulness
I grease up my breastplate.

Sometimes my armor,
needs fortification . . .
for I start to lose for God
my heartfelt appreciation.

So I take all the Verses,
enriched with gratitude
and enshroud my helmet
with a praise filled attitude.

Sometime my armor,
gets bent all out of shape . . .
so I apply the Gospel of Truth
so from satan I may escape.

I straighten up my shield,
with steadfast faith and trust
so when his fiery darts hit me . . .
my armor will not combust!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:13-17

Wherefore take unto you
the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to withstand
in the evil day, and having done all,
to stand
.

Stand therefore, having your loins
girt about with truth, and having
on the breastplate of righteousness
;

And your feet shod with the
preparation of the gospel of peace;

Above all, taking the shield
of faith, wherewith ye shall
be able to quench all the fiery
darts of the wicked.

And take the helmet of salvation,
and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God:

Daybreak ~

When in the morning,
as I first awake . . .
before the sun rises
as a new day breaks.

I thank my Father,
upon the early light
for protecting me
throughout the night.

When daybreak calls,
me out of my bed
I thank my Father
for the day ahead.

I pray for His guidance,
His shield of protection
in my break of day
sunrise reflections.

Before the sun bursts,
upon morn’s awakening
I praise my Father . . .
for today’s enlightening!

Genesis 1:3

And God said,
Let there be light:
and there was light.

Drop By Drop ~

Drop by drop,
hope drips in . . .
til goose bumps
form on my skin.

Shivers of glory,
tingles of peace
as each droplet
God releases.

Drip by drip,
hope seeps in
til my elation
forms a big grin.

Smiles of bliss,
cheers of delight
with each trickle
my soul it excites

Hope drips in,
drop by drop . . .
causing my heart
with joy to flip-flop!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 15:13

Now the God of hope
fill you with all joy and
peace in believing, that ye
may abound in hope,
through the power
of the Holy Ghost.

Give God Your Praise ~

Give thanks to God,
no matter how you feel
give to Him your praise
as before Him you kneel.

Show Him your gratitude,
in whatever you do
no matter your situation
your praise will uplift you.

Give thanks to the Lord,
for His loving kindness
give to Him your praise
for all of His goodness.

Show Him your appreciation,
through good times and bad
no matter your circumstance
for His mercy always be glad.

Give God your thanks,
in your prayer and pleas
whether you are standing
or down on your knees!

Psalm 46:1-3

“God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.

Therefore will not we fear,
though the earth be removed,

and though the mountains be
carried into the midst of the sea;

though the waters thereof
roar and be troubled,

though the mountains shake
with the swelling thereof.

Psalm 28:7

The Lord is my strength and my shield
my heart trusted in him, and I am helped
therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth
and with my song will I praise him.

Before me Lord,

For I trust You Lord,
I’ll follow where You say
for in Your right hand

Before me Lord,
I trust You will go
so the way to me
You, Yourself can show.

For You are my Rock,

Before You Lord,
my praises I will sing
my tongue will rejoice
for the hope You bring!

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!

A Plate of Grace ~

Come this Thanksgiving . . .
there’ll be no turkey with dressing
I’m only going to serve a plate
of gratitude for God’s blessings.

As a substitute for candied yams,
we’ll feast on His loving kindness
taste the sweetness of His favor
as we reflect on His righteousness.

There’ll be no rolls and butter,
instead, we’ll eat of the Bread of Life
with gratitude we’ll give our thanks
to Jesus for bearing our strife.

In place of mashed potatoes,
there’ll be praise piled just as high
we’ll sing our adoration
in place of having pumpkin pie.

The only beverage we will drink,
will be from the one True Vine
with humility on our lips
our thanks will be as sweet as wine.

Come this Thanksgiving . . .
there’ll be no traditional dinner
instead I’ll serve a plate of grace
to anyone who is a sinner!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 7:17

I will praise the Lord
according to his righteousness:
and will sing praise to the name
of the Lord most high.

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!

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!
