Thanks for the Little Things By Brenda Drake

Thanks for the Little Things

As I sit in my favorite chair ready to praise the Lord,
I begin to think of all I am thankful for.
Some things quickly come to mind:
Like food, clothing, shelter and fun family times,
The simple things we take for granted each day,
Like the allotted time we take to pray,
The hot cup of coffee sweetened to taste,
The precious luxury of a warm, inviting place,
The fun times with family and friends,
And the meaningful, loving conversations with them,
For Church family that spreads across many miles,
And messages from God’s Word that causes hearts to smile.
As I write down my thoughts of all I’m thankful for,
I see countless blessings received from the Lord.
As I get ready for our big day planned,
 When our family partakes God’s provisions prepared by my hand;
A Thanksgiving meal with all the trimmings….my diet is to be crashed
But also I am thankful God and my family loves me even if I’m fat!

Psalms 92:1
It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praise
unto thy name, O most High:

I am Thankful By Brenda Drake

This is the time of year we remember our many blessings.  I will praise God for all He has done and all He is yet to do.  He is worthy of all thanks and praise.

I am Thankful

 I am thankful for freedom to worship the Lord above
And for His many provisions of love.
I am grateful for freedom and the freedom deep within.
I have so much to be thankful for, it is hard to know where to begin.
My family, friends, provisions of food to share,
Clothing and the countless blessings of life unaware.
Such as restoration of body, and peace of mind,
And so many more treasures left for us to find.
I am thankful God hears our prayer,
And that He is of all things fully aware.
I am thankful for the teachings of the Word true and right:
That, things are brought to light, and He our battle fights.
When we gather together with table laden with good things to share,
Remember with me to be thankful God answers prayer.
Pray with confidence and with heart humble and bowed low,
In faith believe our Country is in His merciful hold.
Look up with joy and step forth in faith to say,
Lord, Thy will be done: and then go on to enjoy your day.

Psalms 9:1-4
I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart;
I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.
I will be glad and rejoice in thee:
I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.
When mine enemies are turned back,
they shall fall and perish at thy presence.
 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause;
thou satest in the throne judging right.
