The threats of the world cause us a certain dread of the future of our world. If we are not careful we get caught up in its turmoil and worry and fear takes root in our heart. When we lose our peace and joy we begin to grumble and complain and become discontented with our life. If we are wise we will remember God is in control and we have so much to be thankful for.
Let Us Truly be Thankful
The truly thankful gives back
To help in another’s lack.
With all their heart they desire to serve,
With such an attitude they obey God’s Word.
Gratitude for salvation is an eternal joy that delights.
The thankful one’s countenance shines bright
Each day’s gift purpose is to glorify Christ.
They know no matter what comes they are clearly in His sight.
Tomorrow’s promise causes contentment in today.
The world and its threats are chased away,
Faith, hope, and love are necessary tools,
Prayer, praise, and worship are what most desire to use.
Thankfulness creates a place where peace can reign.
In God’s presence thankful hearts seek to remain.
Everything is provided by the Lover of our soul.;
We dishonor His goodness when we are not thankful.
It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord,
and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:
To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning,
and thy faithfulness every night,
