Lord, I love You ~

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

Have I sung to You my praise,
for Your mercy and Your grace
have I told you I can’t wait
till I can thank You face to face?

Lord have I stressed to You,
the faith in You I have found
have I said I appreciate You
for keeping my heart sound?

Have I expressed You keep me,
pressing on each new day
have I told You how delighted
You’re my Light, Truth and Way?

Lord if I have neglected,
telling You these things lately
I want to make it clear right now
it’s how I feel about You daily!

All for Joy ~

Count it all for joy,
each trial you go through
give it not a second thought
then watch what God will do.

Count it all for joy,
when tested for your belief
patience will be your reward
and His peace your relief.

Count it all for joy,
as He performs His work in you
let His perfection complete
and make you someone new.

Count it all for joy,
lest you be tossed about
seek by faith all your needs
and in God never doubt.

Count it all for joy,
for His wisdom is yours to gain
ask believing without fear
and in your life He will reign.

Count it all for joy,
no matter your despair
let His love fill you up . . .
and your life He’ll repair!

~~~~~~

James 1:2-3

“My brethren, count it all joy
when ye fall
into divers temptations;

Knowing this,
that the trying of your faith

 worketh patience.”

Early Morning Praise ~

Early in the morning,
before the sun is ablaze
give a shout of pure joy
a song of heartfelt praise.

Make a sweet melody,
show God your gratitude
sing out your praises
with a joyful attitude.

Early in the morning,
as the sun begins to rise
remember God’s kindness
as He lightens up the skies.

Clap your hands together,
lift your arms in praise
give your day to the Lord
thanking Him for His ways.

While the dew is still set,
on the morning lawn
while the house is yet dark
before it becomes dawn.

Show your thankfulness,
to the Lord up above
lift up your heart-song
praising Him for His love.

When your day is finally over,
as the sun dims its blazing light
thank God for His faithfulness
all though the starry night!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 92:1-2

“It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
and to sing praises to Your name, O Most
 High; To declare Your lovingkindness in the
morning, and Your faithfulness every night.”

as before Him you kneel.

Show Him your gratitude,
in whatever you do
no matter your situation

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 waters thereof
roar and be troubled,

though the mountains shake
with the swelling thereof.

Psalm 28:7

therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth
and with my song will I praise him.

I am Thankful ~

Today I am thankful,
for my daily bread
for the Holy Spirit
by whom I am lead.

For the abundance,
of faith and grace

to stay in the race.

Today I am grateful,
to my Father above
for His tender mercy
His wondrous love.

For His Goodness,
all He provides
for the power
He daily supplies.

Lord, today I’m thankful,
oh, so grateful too . . .
for all You bless me with
for all ~ for me You do!

Have A Blessed Thanksgiving


Count All Your Blessings ~

Count all your blessings,
every single blessed one . . .
add them all together
be grateful for the sum.

Be thankful for all you have,
convey your gratitude
let your appreciation
reflect in your attitude.

Appreciate your wealth,
no matter how great or small
show your gratefulness
to God who supplies it all.

Let your thankfulness,
reach across the whole land
freely give to others
what God’s put in your hand.

Count all your blessings,
so many have not any. . .
give to them all you can
even if it’s your last penny!

~~~~~~~~

Mark 12:41-44

And Jesus sat over against
the treasury, and beheld
how the people cast money
into the treasury: and many
that were rich cast in much.

And there came
a certain poor widow,
and she threw in two mites,
which make a farthing.

And he called unto him his
disciples, and saith unto them,
Verily I say unto you,
That this poor widow
hath cast more in, than all
they which have cast into
the treasury:

For all they did cast in of
their abundance; but she
of her want did cast in all
that she had, even all her living.

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.

Sticky Note From God ~11.20.19~


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.

of our Lord Jesus Christ;

My Morning Song ~

Early in the morning,
before the sun is ablaze
I give a shout of joy
with a song of heartfelt praise.

I make a sweet melody,
to show God my gratitude
as I sing out my praises
with a joyful attitude.

Early in the morning,
before the sun begins to rise
I thank God for His kindness
under the darken skies.

I clap my hands together,
lift my arms up in praise
as I give my day to the Lord
I thank Him for His ways.

While the dew is still set,
on the morning lawn
while the house is dark
before there is a new dawn.

I show my thankfulness,
to the Lord up above
and lift up my heart-song
to honor His steadfast love.

When my day is over,
as the sun dims its blazing light
I thank God for His faithfulness
all though the starry night!

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

Thank You for blessing me,

right within Your vision.

Good night lord,

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!

When I think of all the things,
this year for which I’m thankful
there are a few that stand out
that leave me eternally grateful.

I’m thankful for God’s mercy
for His unmerited favor
I am grateful for His gift
of Christ Jesus, my Savior

I am thankful for His grace,
for the love Jesus showed
I am forever appreciative
for the hope in me He bestowed.

I am thankful for my faith,
the forgiveness of my sin
I am grateful over satan
the battle God and I can win.

So, with a shout of gratitude,
I will close out this year . . .
with a heart full of gladness
having nothing to fear!
