We as a Nation set aside a day to give thanks, but our Nation needs to have a life set aside to give thanks to God.
A Life Set Aside To Give Thanks
By Brenda drake
I am thankful for my life’s many seasons;
With privilege to express my thoughts with freedom.
I have great appreciation to God above.
Who has so blessed us with His love.
All thanks and praise to Him along with a prayer,
To daily have a thankful heart willing to share.
In our celebration with tables laden with much,
Let us be willing to reach out and touch,
The one that is alone or in need,
So they too give thanks as they receive.
Great is the life set aside to express,
The things that cause us happiness.
Like family, friends, and the peace inside;
For love and joy and the provisions that keep us alive.
The list continues and never ends,
In fact the heart thankful just begins…
I am thankful I am able to behold,
The beauty of creation and the colors in a rainbow;
And for a heart that will see,
God’s promise and believes.
I am so thankful for all God has done.
But most of all I am thankful for Jesus His Son.
He is the bread that feeds the soul,
With peace and joy left yet untold.
I am eternally thankful for the work of the cross,
That calls to repentance and saves the lost.
Thank you Father, I pray to again bless our land.
Lead and guide us to choose Your ways to understand.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
