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.

Ephesians 5:20

Giving thanks always for all things
unto God and the Father in the name
of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Good Morning Quote ~10.19.19~


Sticky Note to God ~03.21.19~


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!

~~~~~~~~~~

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.”

Good Night Lord ~

Good night Lord,
it’s been a pleasant day
walking along with You
on the narrow way.

Thank You for being with me,
for holding my hand
for lifting me up
when I thought I couldn’t stand.

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

Thank You for blessing me,
with each daily provision
for keeping me always
right within Your vision.

Good night lord,
let’s do this again tomorrow
if from You another day . . .
will allow me to borrow!

Psalm 42:8

“Yet the Lord will command
his lovingkindness in the
day time, and in the night
his song shall be with me,
and my prayer unto the
God of my life.”

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!

“In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God

A Heart Full of Gladness ~

a-heart-full-of-gladness-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

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!

Tis The Season For Thankfulness ~

tis-the-season-for-thanksgiving-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann-belka

Tis the season . . . .
for inward reflections
a time to share
outward expressions.

A time to be,
for all things thankful
a time to convey to God
just why we’re grateful.

Tis the season . . .
for inner thoughtfulness
a time to thank God
for His kindheartedness.

A time to see,
how much we’re blessed,
a time for our gratitude
to be openly professed.

Tis the season . . .
for thankful contemplation
a time to say Thank You God
whatever our situation!
