Thanks And Praise

We lift to God thanks and praise, for His care over all our days,
Even when the times get tough, God surrounds us, in His Love,
Love thatís of an eternal scope, which gives to us eternal hope,
The hope one finds in Jesus Christ, as we walk through this life.

All our praise is due to Him, Who not only saved us from all sin,
But, our Lord God imputed to us, Jesus Christís Righteousness,
A righteousness not of our own, for it was sent from His Throne,
Where we are seated with Christ, Hope we have, while in this life.

Here He sustains us in His Love, which comes down from above,
While Godís Everlasting Arms, protects us from all undue harms,
Providing us with comfort too, comforts which each day are new,
For Godís compassion never fails, while in our life, God prevails.

His Love is beyond our reason, and for all time not just a season,
As Godís Love is eternal friend, and such a love will have no end,
A love that begins upon this earth, and long before our New Birth,
Being created in the image of, the One who saved us by His love.

That love and much, much more, is what Believers thank God for,
And while His Love helps us cope, we have in God a larger Hope,
A hope that is beyond this place, hope granted to us all by grace,
Our hope of New Life, eternally, that only those in Christ shall see.

I needed to read this today... both to lift floundering spirits and to remind me of all I'm thankful for... Thank you for this blessing!

We know this is far more than beautiful rhyming words, Bob.  Especially coming from you, verifies from the depths of your heart, you've felt God's love confirmed in your own life though all the trauma you've recently suffered.  Thanks for sharing this with us.

God bless!

Thanks and praise aren't really that hard, and yet I know I fail to give enough of either most the time.  This is beautiful, Bob... and a nice reminder that I do have lots to be thankful for.  You for one thing.


Michael
