Gratefulness to God

Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift. -- 2 Corinthians 9:15

Awesome God, we are eternally grateful to You,
Your marvelous blessings make us want to shout yahoo!

For through mighty Lord Jesus we are forever saved,
For the Holy Spirit comforter to aid us to be brave.

For supportive, dedicated, loving family and friends,
For warm hugs and tender kisses through loved ones You send.

For Your strong guidance, blessed comfort and forgiveness of sin,
For Your serene peace, unending love and optimistic hope You
give within.

For good health, wise answers to prayer and enthusiastic joy,
For our fulfilling careers, provision of daily needs and playful toys.

For the inspired Bible that soothes our fear and guides our way,
For dynamic churches where Christians meet to worship, sing and pray.

For spectacular snow-capped mountains we see,
For sparkly, effervescent ocean waves lapping with glee.

For radiant, warm sunshine in bright rays,
For exquisite waterfalls rushing over cliffs in splashy sprays.

For the abilities and talents You have bestowed on us all,
For good books, entertainment, delightful crafts and rowdy games of pitty-pat ball.

The ways You have blessed us are as numberless as the stars in the sky,
God, forever in our lives we will serve You and Your name we will magnify.
