Poem Week Giving Thanks


WHEN WE THINK ABOUT THANKSGIVING ALL THAT COMES TO MIND IS FAMILY FRIENDS FOOD AND FUN

BUT THE TRUE MEANING OF THANKSGIVING SHOULD BE RESERVED FOR THE HOLY ONE

YES THE ONE WHO SITS HIGH ABOVE AND LOOKS DOWN ON US BELOW

WHO IS A CONTINUAL LIGHT TO OUR PATH SO WE KNOW WHICH WAY TO GO

HE IS THE BRIGHT AND MORNING STAR THE FORGIVER OF OUR SIN

WHO SITS AND KNOCKS AT THE DOOR OF OUR HEARTS, HOPING HE WILL BE INVITED IN

HE IS OUR REFUGE AND OUR STRONG TOWER HE ENABLES US TO STAND

AND TELLS US NOT TO WORRY WHAT TOMORROW MAY BRING…FOR OUR LIFE HE HAS A PLAN

HE HAS GIVEN US A JOY INSIDE THAT THIS WORLD CAN’T TAKE AWAY

HE ASKS US TO BE DOERS NOT JUST HEARERS AND FROM HIS WORDS WE MUST NEVER SWAY

HE IS THE GOD OF ALL BLESSINGS AND THE SOURCE OF ALL LIFE

AND HE IS MORE THAN ABLE TO BRING US THROUGH THE DARKEST OF NIGHTS

HE IS THE BREATH THAT SUSTAINS US AND THE GIVER OF GRACE

NOT ONLY IS HE THE AUTHOR BUT THE FINISHER OF OUR FAITH

THANKSGIVING IS AN ELEMENT OF PRAYER THAT SHOULDN’T BE HARD

WE OUGHT TO BE MORE THANKFUL AND HAVE GRATITUDE FROM WHAT WE GET FROM OUR GOD


BLESSINGS AND HAPPY THANKSGIVING
