A Grateful Heart   Leave a comment

Dear Lord each day I wake and profess my thanks

By habit is it now

But never let it be I pray

By rote, a box to check

And forget to thank you from my heart

For the ability to see, to hear

To wake and walk upright

To hold another’s hand

To gaze into their eyes

To thank you for our lives

I’m not there yet … but I know God is both here with me now on this undecided shore, and at the same time faithfully watching and waiting for me in that place of victory where I soon hope to be …   Leave a comment

 

Victory may be a stone’s throw away

But first we have to pick up the stone, and then throw it…

 

Measuring the distance between here and a successful outcome …

Nothing happens in this lifetime without our participation

First we see – focus on our vision

How long … Set the clock

Execute … Faith with Works

 

We’re not done yet — Most important, is not what we receive, but what we give – This is the fruit of our labor as well…

In All Things Be Thankful  – For this is the will of God concerning us …  1 Thessalonians 5:1

The Simplicity of God’s Will for Us   Leave a comment

Not a tall order – Simplifying what is God’s will – Evidence of God’s grace and mercy – Our Divine Parent knows what we need and what we’re capable of through the gift of the Holy Spirit  –

One drop of gratitude begins to purify the muddy waters of our hearts and minds making clear the path on which to walk

 

In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:18

 

Thankfulness
