1 Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Good day everyone. I want to share with you a poem I wrote on November 22, 2007. I’m not a poet and had never written a poem before….but this day… I was so grateful to have survived cancer and I was feeling very thankful for life when I wrote this.

I cooked thanksgiving dinner and invited my family over. Before we ate our dinner…we prayed together like we always do…but afterwards I read this poem. It was very emotional for me and you know it…I cried and so did my family…..but they were tears of great thankfulness and joy. I pray my poem blesses you too.

My Daily  prayer of Thanksgiving

I’m so thankful for all God’s done for me
How He daily sustains me and I don’t even see
 He daily strengthens my body,mind, and soul
I would have fainted long ago, the truth be told

I’m thankful for my husband, my children, family and friends
I pray grace, mercy and peace for them without end
I’m thankful for shelter, food and even a car
God, I’m so thankful you’ve bought me safely thus far

There is one  thing though that I’m the most thankful for
A tremendous blessing I just can’t ignore
You sent your only Son to die and remove sin from me
And without His sacrifice my soul would not be free

I’m also very thankful; you didn’t want me to be alone
You sent me your Holy Spirit, because I am your own
Your Spirit comforts and guides, He reveals my God to me
 Without His gentle leadings, I don’t know where I’d be

The thing that touches me the most is how God loves me so
His word says it, the Spirit confirms it, and somehow I just know
I’m thankful for the power of His love that removes all my doubts and fears
If I could just learn to trust Him, I wouldn’t have need for these tears

Yes, I have so much in my life to be so thankful for
For God choosing me, for my life, and so much more
I’m thankful, I’m grateful, mere words just cannot say
I love God, I praise Him, and I’ll thank Him everyday

Message for today: Thank you Lord for all you’ve done for me!

PS……

I’m also very grateful for all my blog friends who follow my blogs.  I have so much joy getting up in the morning to write my blog.  Suffering with a chronic illness has been difficult….but since I’ve been blogging I feel a fresh anointing in my life.  If there was nobody reading my blogs I may have stopped writing them by now…I’m feel spurred on to keep writing from connecting with all of you.  So I want to take this time to say thank you for making this one of the most fulfilling times in my life.

XOXO,

Tanya
