I am Thanking you, God

 

Hello my beloved readers, I just want to say “Happy Thanksgiving” to all of my faithful readers and follower.  Allow me to celebrate Thanksgiving Day with a poem. I hope and pray this poem can be a reminder for us to always giving thanks to our beloved God.

Dear God:

I want to thank you for what you have already done

I am not going to wait until I see results, or receive rewards;

I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until I feel better or things look better;

I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until people say they are sorry or until they stop talking about me;

I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until the pain in my body disappears;

I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until my financial situation improves;

I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until the children are asleep and the house is quiet;

I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until I get promoted at work or until I get the job;

I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until I understand every experience in my life that has caused me pain or grief;

I am thanking you right now.

I am not going to wait until the journey gets easier or the challenges are removed;

I am thanking you right now.

I am thanking you because I am alive

I am thanking you because I made it through the day’s difficulties.

I am tanking you because I have walked around the obstacles.

I am thanking you because I have the ability and the opportunity to more and do better.

I am thanking you because FATHER, YOU haven’t given up on me.

1 Chronicles 16:34: “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.”

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18: “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

Psalm 28:7: “The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.”

Psalm 69:30: “I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving.”

  1. Dear Karina, that is a beautiful poem! Thank you so much for sharing it. It is right that you say we need not wait for things to get better to be thankful. One of my life sayings is “It could always be worse.” I say that facetiously, sometimes, but it is true. I love your spirit. May God bless you today, and Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving, Karina. Thank you for a wonderful reminder of all we have to be thankful for, how to apply the correct spiritual attitude, and most of all for our Lord Jesus who blesses us abundantly. Blessings to you.

  3. I am just reading this two days after Thanksgiving. But I am so moved by your poem. We have so much to be thankful for every day, don’t we? Love you! And I thanked God for you today.
