A Thankful Heart

As we enter into the Thanksgiving season, let’s take the time to contemplate what we have to be thankful for and to whom we give thanks.  Often we, as people, tend to focus on problems and what is wrong, rather than what is right.   We know that we have been blessed and given much but we, not unlike the Children of Israel tend to see the problems:  We have no food; there is no water; there are giants rather than the one who is taking care of us.  Anyone reading this has at least a few things that they can be thankful for if we choose to see them.  For the next thirty days, I will be posting things for which I believe each one of us can be thankful.  I hope that you will join me in coming with a thankful heart to God.




I am thankful for God,

My shield,

My creator,

My defender

The one who is greater

And loves each of us

With undying love.

He wakes us each morning

Causes us to sleep in peace.

He holds our hand

And hides us under his wings.

The worlds were made

At his command.

We have life because of Him.
