Thankful

No matter what today may bring,
Lord, You provide the grace I need,
May I give thanks in everything.

If I stray and fail to listen,
And You guide me in discipline,
May I give thanks in everything.

If sickness comes to rob good health,
I lose my job, my spouse, my wealth,
May I give thanks in everything.

And if all is well on this day,
I never pray or praise Your name,
I take for granted everything,

Then…

Teach me to have a grateful heart,
‘Til my last breath and I depart,
May I give thanks in everything.

Behind the lines

1 Thessalonians 5:18

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
