Father, How Can I Show My Gratitude ~

Father, how can I show my gratitude,
my gratefulness for all You’ve done
how can I show my thankfulness
for the eternal gift of Your Son?

What can I do to repay You,
for the kindness You’ve shown me
what can I give back to You
so my appreciation You can see?

How can I render my thanksgiving,
the sense of my true gratification
how can I ever prove to You
the full delight of my satisfaction?

Father, how can I show my gratitude,
my gratefulness for all You do
how can I show my thankfulness
if I am not always praising You?

~~~~~~~~

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.

Grow Your Gratitude ~

Grow your gratitude,
it will increase your praise
then what comes your way
you will not be phased.

For God wants us to be,
for all things grateful
and then our praise to Him
will become a daily staple.

Grow your thankfulness,
it won’t disappoint you
then whatever God sends
you’ll be able to get through.

For God desires of us,
our earnest of devotions
not just the kind we give
when going through the motions.

Grow your thanksgiving,
gratefulness you will raise
so no matter what life brings
you’ll still offer God your praise!

Giving Thanks In Everything ~

Giving thanks in everything,
is God’s will for you
for He is praiseworthy
to receive His glory due.

For when you are grateful,
peace will flood your heart
then into it faith and trust
will come and do its part.

Giving thanks for all things,
is God’s true desire
no matter your situation
let it your praise inspire.

For when you are thankful,
for and in everything
His steadfast love will help
you get over anything.

Giving thanks to God,
wherever you are in this life
will allow Jesus to help you
overcome all of your strife!

Sticky Note From God 10.06.16

Thanksgiving Dinner ~

Thanksgiving Dinner ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Every year at this same time,
we sit at our dining tables . . .
feasting upon what has become
Thanksgiving Day staples.

We gobble down the turkey,
mashed potatoes and candy yams
then we sit back and disclaim . . .
I can’t believe how full I am.

But, this year I am not serving,
the traditional Thanksgiving fare
instead a healthy fruit salad . . .
is all I’m planning to share.

I’m going take some gentleness,
stuff it full of God’s love
along side of it will be the peace
that comes only from above.

I’ll pile high on each plate,
some joy and some goodness
right next to them I will place
some faith and some meekness.

I’ll top it off with patience,
and for the piece of resistance
I’ll pray for those whom I serve. . .
to have a lot of temperance!

~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:22-23

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love,
 joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith,

Meekness, temperance:
 against such there is no law.

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 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.

gushing out in my attitude!

Where There is Peace ~

Where There Is Peace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Where there is peace,
there is thanksgiving
where there is praise
there is holy living.

Where there is calm,
there is joyfulness
where there is trust
there is cheerfulness.

Where there is tranquility,
there is anticipation
where there is hope
there is salvation.

Where there is serenity,
there is reliance
where there is faith
there is guidance.

Where there is peace,
there is thanksgiving
where there is devotion
there is worshiping!

~~~~~~~

John 14:27

“Peace I leave with you,
my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth,
give I unto you.

Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.”

In the Middle of the Night ~ CHristian poetry by deborah ann - photo Creationswap

In the middle of the night,
when all is calm and quiet
when in my house . . .
there’s a peaceful climate.

I take advantage,
of the early morning hour
and I thank God . . .
for His strength and power.

I thank Him for the new day,
He has in store for me . . .
I thank Him for helping me
believe in things, I can’t see.

I thank Him for His mercy,
He showers on me anew
I thank Him for His grace
that restores and renews.

I thank Him for His love,
above all other things . . .
I thank Him for the peace
just knowing Him brings.

In the middle of the night,
if awaken from my sleep . . .
I thank my heavenly Father
for every blessing that I reap!

What Thanksgiving Brings ~

praise-him-3 free  photo

Thanksgiving brings hope,
where there is none
thanksgiving brings gladness
as praise rolls of the tongue.

Thanksgiving brings calm,
where there is chaos
thanksgiving brings joyfulness
with peace, as its payoff.

Thanksgiving brings trust,
where there is doubt
thanksgiving brings jubilation
to those who are devout.

Thanksgiving brings power,
where there is weakness
thanksgiving brings merriment
healing and completeness.

Thanksgiving brings delight,
to our Father and His Son
thanksgiving brings rejoicing
for all they have done!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 75:175

“Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks,
unto thee do we give thanks:
for that thy name is near
thy wondrous works declare.”

Finding Peace ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~Perfect Peace - IBible Verse

Peace without prayer,
is just impossible
for prayer makes
all things possible.

Peace without trust,
cannot be there
for trust gives Jesus
our every care.

Peace without hope,
is not able to save
for without hope
there’s only the grave.

Peace without faith,
can’t bring calmness
for faith by itself
can’t bring stillness.

Peace without praise,
won’t make us peaceful
for without praise . . .
we can’t be grateful!

~~~~~~~~

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee:
 because he trusteth in thee.”

Eternally Grateful ~

Praise Him always by Travis Silva free photo #1222R

Oh, Lord when I mediate,
on Your tender mercy . . .
my heart for You becomes
ever-more thirsty.

I want to drink in,
all of Your compassion . . .
I want to bottle up
each drop of Your passion.

Oh, Lord when I ponder,
on Your abundant grace . . .
I cannot, but help to fall
down on my thankful face.

Not out of shame,
but, out of respect and fear
for, Your eternal love for me
makes my eyes well and tear.

Oh, Lord when I concentrate,
on Your faithfulness . . .
my hearts swells for you
with eternal gratefulness!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 100:4-5

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

Joy in Suffering?

whatjoy ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ used with permission IBible Verses

How could there be joy in suffering,
what good can come from pain?
How can there be rejoicing,
when there’s only loss, and not gain?

How could there be thanksgiving,
what good can come from tribulation?
How can there be gratefulness,
when there’s only deep affliction?

How could there be praise,
what good can come from misery?
How can there be worship,
when there’s no longer liberty?

How could there be gladness,
what good can come from persecution?
How can there be happiness,
when there’s some facing execution?

How could there be joy in suffering,
what good can come from all this pain?
Ah, is it because we believe . . .
one day, Jesus will come to reign?

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

1 Peter 1:6-7

“Wherein ye greatly rejoice,
though now for a season,
if need be, ye are in heaviness
through manifold temptations:

That the trial of your faith,
being much more precious
 than of gold that perisheth,
though it be tried with fire,
might be found unto praise
and honour and glory at the
appearing of Jesus Christ:”

I’m Looking Up ~

worship1_bmp

I’m looking up,
morning, noon and night
I’m keeping my eyes on Jesus
looking straight into His light.

I’m not going to look within,
I’ll just be disappointed
I’m not going to look back
I’ll just get all disjointed.

I’m not looking around me,
I’ll just be distracted
I’m not going to look forward
I’ll just get sidetracked.

So, I’ll just keep looking up,
with praise and gratitude
morning, noon and night
with a thankful attitude!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 5:3

” My voice shalt thou hear in the morning,
O Lord; in the morning will I direct my

Be Not Anxious ~

be-not-anxious CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Be anxious for nothing,
let not worry rule the day
give your cares to the Lord
before you go your way.

For, Jesus promises,
through everything in prayer
you will find His rest when . . .
thanksgiving is also there.

Don’t get overly nervous,
don’t fuss and fret about
lest your anxiety will cast . . .
those tiny seeds of doubt.

For, Jesus knows you need,
Him to take away your fear
and a thankful heart will . . .
bring Him close and near.

Don’t let your anxiety,
rob you of your peace
instead let thankfulness . . .
be what you release!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6
King James Version

” Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer

and supplication with
thanksgiving let your requests

be made known unto God.”

A Joyful, Thankful Heart ~


Lord, a joyful, thankful heart,
I bring to Thanksgiving’s table
a soul forever grateful
for all that You are able.

You make my plate complete,
when from Your Word I reap
the full bounty of Your grace
in Your kindness I do steep.

You fill me with such peace,
Your tender mercies overflow
Your love fills me to the brim
Your compassion in me grows.

You supply all my needs,
bless me with even more
You fulfill my every dream
with promises of life ~ evermore.

Lord, a joyful, thankful heart,
I bring to You not just on today
a soul full of hope and gratitude
for all You’ve done along the way!
