Did I remember to Thank You,Dear Lord?

Did I Remember To Thank You ,Dear Lord?

Do I always remember to thank You , Dear Lord?

Or do I sometimes forget through out the day?

Is there something someplace that I failed to do,

Or was there something that I did not say?

Too often we forget to do all of those things

God has shown ,that He put upon our heart.

Sometimes as a Christian we don't take time

To do things that we know will set us apart.

If we really want to be recognized as His Child

Then we should not be afraid to let people know.

We must be careful daily all the words we speak,

How we live our life and where our feet will go .

We must remember then to stop and thank Him ,

For all of the things that He has sent our way.

Perhaps at the time they weren't pleasant then,

But God saw what we had needed for that day !

Our Father's Mind is so great and far above us.

There are times that we don't always comprehend

The reasoning behind Our Father's Gift of Love.

With thankful heart just take what He does send !



************************************************************


It seems funny that we always thank somebody

If they do a favor for us or if they give us a gift

but I think that since we belong to God we

expect to receive ,He is a Giver of Gifts and

we should be a Giver of Thanks for all that

He does for us.Thank You,Lord !

I prayed one day many years ago, and I ended with, "Thank you, Lord!", and I heard an 'internal reply', "You're welcome." I was stunned. I said, "Lord, I've never heard you say that before." He said, "You've never stopped and taken the time to listen." From then on, I realized that God doesn't just appreciate our thanks, but He is gracious enough to respond in kind.
