How Many Times A Day Do I Give Thanks To You?

How Many Times A Day Do I Give Thanks To You?

How many times a day do I give thanks to You

For all of the things that You have really done?

How could I ever be so neglectful at times,

And forget to give You Praise for every one?


I do not always want to seem so ungrateful

For the daily Blessings that You always give.

I do not ever want to seem so thoughtless

Not one day of my life that I shall live.


What would I do if You would forget me,

Leave me to wander this earth all alone.

What would I do if I awoke one morning,

Found Your Spirit had left me on my own?


Oh ,Lord, I am so sure You are very tired

Of broken promises that You hear every day.

I do not want to be like those nine lepers

Who receive their heart's desire to walk away.


Always help me to be like the one lone leper

Who was so faithful to his life's very end.

I must always be true through my whole life

To my Lord, my Confidant ,Teacher and Friend.


I would hate to think what daily life would be

If You were not here every step of the way.

Life would be all darkness and full of gloom

With no Son Shining on my steps every day.


With the heartaches I have passed through,

And there was no Lord to hold onto my hand .

I am sure that I could never do it all alone ,

With no Lord as an Anchor I could not stand.


How about you? Is Jesus your life's anchor?

Do you thank Him every day that you live?

A heart full of Love and Sweet Peace daily

Is one of the best gifts that our Lord will give.


To receive thanks daily is all of the payment

That Jesus the Lord is really expecting of you .

Will you come to Him now ,repenting and yielding

To the One in life Who will forever be true?

Every day we hear someone scorning and

mocking our Lord. Do they have no fear of

our future and the things that will soon be

on this earth?With all of the earthquakes,

floods and all of the disasters that we are

seeing now were all forecast to the disciples

many years ago ,Jesus said when you see

these things your redemption draws near.

Never have we had so many disasters as

we are seeing every day , but still man does

not believe . What will it take to get them to

come to Jesus while there is still time?Do

not ignore the signs we are seeing every day.

Get your Bible out and read Matthew, chapter

24 , dust off your Bible and read it , if you

don't have a Bible , get one , you will know

what will soon be coming. Be prepared !

Don't wait until it is too late!

You have an atheists ad right here on your page and it always makes me so sad to think they see nothing in life of wonder. I was led (I really was) to tell this hubber I loved her and she stopped harassing me. They don't have long and like you I have to wonder can't they look at the world and see all happening that is in the very book we live by?

God bless you for keeping on!

Hello Michael, I have been off of here for a few days and I figured I had better get back on before everybody forgets me, No, I just needed a break for a few days,good to hear from you . Jesus does so many things for us and we have to wonder why most people do not even bother to thank Him.I guess they can't see God for Satan always being so near.Clara

Hello Jackie, It is good to hear from you , I am still having trouble with the computer wiping things off of here, at times I wonder if the devil is trying to get me off of here , not me, the poems, but I have come too far to turn back now.I do not know how folks can see all of the happenings of the day and not believe all of these things are a warning from God. If they would just read the Bible they could see what is headed our way, but they won't do that , What will it take to get them to turn to the Lord?Love and a hug,Clara

Hi Clara, when my eyes open first thing in the morning, I praise Him, and then praise Him throughout the whole day, and my day is much better and I feel His peace comforting me no matter what is going on in my life, while praying without ceasing for all who are lost. Also, that He create in me a clean heart . .

Beautiful truth written here. We are truly living in the last days, I believe. It will so wonderful to see His glorious face on that day!

God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper

Hello Faith , It was good to hear from you . I am glad that you liked the poem,and I do believe that we really are in the last days ,Every way you can see the signs of it around you. I pray that we will all be ready to go on that day. We can tell people but we cannot make them believe if they don't want to ,most of the preacher's seem to believe that all of God's promises have been fulfilled ,I guess we must be living in bonus days now . I hope that all of our loved ones will turn to Jesus before that final day !We must pray more and praise him every day!love and a hug, Clara

What a lovely poem, Clara. "Wars and rumours of wars" etc. I do feel we're in the 'last days', but God's time is different from ours. Meanwhile it's up to us to share His love with as many as possible. Thank you for a great write.

Hello Blossom , Thank you or your comment and it seems like so many folks that you talk to has the feeling that something is getting ready to happen but they cannot understand that Jesus will return , I guess they think this world will go on forever getting worse and worse ,not a very nice thought.I received an email yesterday of a prayer of Billy Graham's an his 95 th birthday .It was returned to me as Spam, it was hard to believe anyone would think that. Strange world anymore,Clara

Here is this Clara til I find more. This is facebook but really it is just many hubbers from here and I know you will recognize many. If you don't want to go there you can write out your request and I will deliver it for you; because you will have to have a user name and password. I can do that at another one I know of. The last hug I did was a pastor we have here at Hp and you could go to him and request prayer for sure or again if you type here just what you want I will deliver it from you. I will go back now to pray over your message to me. I will help any way I can.

I went ahead and submitted your request for prayer last night to not let it go through the night unanswered. There use to be one here at Hp but I guess like all places it was canceled out. I know I was just like you one day as I wanted prayer for a friend's daughter who eventually passed away from cancer.

Hello Jackie, We truly are in the last days with all of the freedom of speech and so many of our rights being taken away.God and His Son have been taken out of everything that the government can take them out of, But , they can't taken them out of our hearts.No privacy on our phones or emails .Who ever thought we would live to see this day but it's here now. Thanks for trying , Jackie,I appreciate it , this wiped off once and I do not have all of it on here now. Love and a hug. Clara

No it is both so horrible and exciting to live in this day. To see it all come together proving the bible right for all those doubters and to be changed in an instant called up to our Lord. Then all those things we cannot image! I like to try anyway now and then!

Hello MsDora. I am sorry I am behind in answering you comment. How can we really thank Him enough for all of the things that He has done for us, just try to do everything that He would have us do and put Him first in our lives. Love and a hug. Clara

There will be many who won't believe the Bible is true until Jesus comes back , then it will be too late for most of them. No matter how we wish for them to be saved but we cannot force them to come to Jesus, just pray for them now to repent and believe . love,Clara


Jackie 3 years ago

Michael thinks it is your computer and it does really sound like it may be. You may have picked up a virus or anything but someone will have to get you back to a certain point on your computer, just make sure you save anything you don't want lost. I keep mine in a folder in a email. Just somewhere it will be safe. I sure hope you get someone to look at it real soon. God bless you.

Clara I so love to be in His presence and feel His touch. Praising God is an honor and rids the devil. Praising God is a wonderful gift and puts us into position to receive. Praising God changes our attitude to gratitude for our multiple blessings. He is worthy to be praised, Amen. I am so grateful for the day I made a choice for Jesus. It was the best day of my life. Many do not hear they do not want to know. They want to do it their way. I know because I was once there. Our way clearly does not work but many are blinded. Many will come to Jesus but for many it will be too late. One day every knee will bow and tongue confess that Jesus is Lord.

Thank you for such a lovely writing Clara. Let us keep going and reaching out to others precious one. Phil 4:13 God does not want one to perish no not one. May each day be abundant in His grace and favor dear sister. Love Skye. Please do come for a visit. I would love to see you.

Thank you ,Laurie , for your comment , I needed that. Only The Lord can bring my loved ones to Him . I have tried but can never get through to them . When we have things hit us that we thought would never happen all we can do is pray and hand it over to the Lord . We find out we can do nothing to help with out God. Thank you, Laurie, Love you, Clara
