Each day we have... each breath we take... are special gifts from HIM.
HE fills our cups with blessings as they flow over the rim.
Consider all the days we've lived a separate gift, each one.
Be hopeful we've lived many when our time here is done.
When we lay down to sleep tonight be thankful for our bed...
Be grateful for the dwelling, HE placed over our head.
Consider well the blessings that GOD placed in our life.
HE clothes us, and HE feeds us and deals with all our strife.
We would do well to "Thank HIM" for each and every day...
and tell HIM of our gratitude every time we pray. Who knows how long we'll be on earth or just how long we'll live.
That information's known to GOD and it is HIS to give.
Be ever mindful that we are here… by HIS OWN "decree". It wasn't done by Mom or Dad... we're here because of HE.
The LORD has opened many doors to bring us where we are.
Without HIS many blessings we wouldn't travel far.
HE was there when we were born and they sang us lullabyes.
Now HE hears us in our prayers and our plaintive cries.
When things are great, and going good we don't call HIM much.
But when all hell is breaking loose, THEN we get in touch.
When things are really going great we seldom bend our knees.
Then when trouble starts to brew... we say
Remember WHO we're talking to when we kneel down to pray.
Be grateful that HE's listening and that we made it through the day.
To thank HIM "once" for all we have is really not sufficient.
We should thank HIM every day our gratitude's deficient.
Each day has a beginning, and without HIM... our's would end.
It's not like HE's a "buddy" or even a "close friend".
GOD is "not" some kind of genie who lives within a bottle.
Nor a grumpy old man that we just have to coddle. HE's "not" some grey haired dude that lives "upstairs".
HE is the LIVING GOD of the Universe. Be Grateful...HE still cares.
Each day that we have spent on earth, we surely didn't earn it.
To Thank HIM always is good advice... we surely shouldn't spurn it.
We've been told so many times that we should just rejoice.
Our gift of life ... and our time here... was really not our choice.
So when we pray and ask our GOD for victories we would win.
I suggest that we all "Thank HIM" and surely fit that in.
