~ 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!

Forever Thankful ~

forever-thankful-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

I’m thankful for God’s goodness,
I’m thankful  for His grace
I’m thankful that I can seek
each day His loving face.

I’m thankful for God’s salvation,
I’m thankful for His favor
I’m thankful He sent Jesus
to be my Lord and Savior.

I’m thankful for God’s blessing,
I’m thankful for His provisions
I’m thankful for the Holy Spirit’s
supernatural supervision.

I’m thankful for God’s pity,
I’m thankful for His care
I’m thankful Jesus came
so my burdens He can bear.

I’m thankful for God’s excellence,
I’m thankful for His goodness
I’m forever thankful  . . .
for His bountiful kindness!

The Language of Gratitude ~

the-language-of-gratitude-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

I’m learning a new language,
its called gratitude . . .
and it begins with having
a thankful attitude.

Its vocabulary,
is easy to understand
for gratitude is as simple as
offering a helping hand.

I don’t have to say any words,
or even write them down
for gratitude can be heard
without making a single sound.

There isn’t a special course,
to study or memorize
for gratitude can be picked up
by hearing others cries.

This dialect is universal,
anyone can speak it
for it is the language
of the Holy Spirit!

~~~~~~

Colossians 3:17

“And whatsoever ye do
in word or deed, do all
in the name of the
Lord Jesus, giving
thanks to God and
the Father by him.”

The Merry Heart ~

The Merry Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The merry heart,
in God has peace
its full of joy
that does not cease.

It wears a smile,
even when its sad
for the joyful heart
is always glad.

The merry heart,
exudes cheerfulness
its full of delight
imparts happiness.

It trusts in God,
in and for all things
for it is thankful
for whatever He brings.

The merry heart,
has a living hope
its full of joy . . .
it refuses to mope!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 17:22

“A merry heart doeth good
like a medicine:
but a broken spirit
drieth the bones.”

Thank You God ~

Thank You God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Thank you God,
for all my days
for Your Spirit
to whom my soul sways.

For the calming peace,
You’ve instilled in me
for Your loving kindness
that has set me free.

For guiding me,
to find the Truth and Life
so I may conquer
all my worldly strife.

For leading me,
to the everlasting Light
which helps me to walk
pleasingly in Your sight.

Thank you God,

My Hope Quiets Me ~

My Hope Quiets Me ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

My hope quiets me,
when I get restless
it calms me down
if I get breathless.

My Hope never fails,
it keeps me strong
it brings me such comfort
all day and night long.

My hope is in God,
His mercy and favor
my hope is in Jesus
my forever Savior.

My hope elates me,
I’m ever so grateful
it makes me always
eternally thankful.

My hope is in the future,
the things that will come
when Jesus peacefully . . .
sets up His kingdom!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 16:9

“Therefore my heart is glad,
and my glory rejoiceth:
my flesh also shall rest in hope.”

If We Want Peace ~

If We Want Peace ~ CHRISTian poety by deborah ann

If we want peace,
transforming our lives
then all of our fears
we must archive.

If we want peace,
altering our minds
then all of our cares
we must leave behind.

If we want peace,
changing our hearts
then from our worries
we must break apart.

If we want peace,
for the rest of our days
then for everything
we must learn to pray.

If we want peace,
then our attitudes
must be full of  . . .
thankful gratitude!

Philippians 4.6-7

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer
and supplication with
thanksgiving let your requests
be made known unto God.

And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus.”

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!

His Amazing Light ~

His Amazing Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ IBible Verses

Lord, give me a joyful heart,
a spirit that is bright
let me look at everything
through Your amazing light.

Let me see the sunshine,
even when there’s rain
let me see the blue skies
even through, my pain.

Let me be grateful,
whatever comes my way
let me be appreciative
every minute of the day.

Let me see the sunbeams,
even when it’s gray
let me see the sunlight
even on a cloudy day.

Lord, let me see everything,
in Your amazing light
let me see rays of hope
be it day or night!

Gracious Gratitude ~

Give Thanks by Matt Gruber free photo #6710

Not just on Thanksgiving,
but every day of the year
give God your heartfelt praise
and it will bring you cheer.

For when we are thankful,
the entire year through
joy will flood our hearts
spilling over in all we do.

Every minute of the day,
thank God for His grace
every second you’re alive
praise His holy face.

Give Him your thanksgiving,
with a heart that’s forthright
and in the eyes of the Lord
you’ll be a pleasure and delight.

So, everyone let’s show Him,
our gracious gratitude . . .
today and all year through
with a thankful attitude!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:18
King James Version

“In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

Singing My Praise ~

Sometimes I want to stand,
on the highest hill . . .
raise my hands to the Lord
so I can tell Him how I feel.

I want to shout out my love,
hear His echo back at me
I want to close my eyes tight
until His face is all I see.

Sometimes I want to be alone,
on the tallest mountain top
sing my praises to the Lord
never wishing for them to stop.

I want to show my gratefulness,
with a standing ovation
I want to shout out my thanks
so He’ll know my appreciation.

Sometimes I want to stand,
and soak in His peace . . .
I want to raise my hands upwards
and my praise just release!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 57:7
King James Version

“My heart is fixed,
O God, my heart is fixed

I will sing and give praise.”
