A Thanksgiving Poem

Dear Friends,

I hope you enjoy the Thanksgiving Poem I wrote for you to share with your loved ones!

Thanksgiving

Today is a beautiful day.

God created this day for you and me,

for us to say thanks and to worship Him.

 

Today is a special day

as we are to remember why we are here.

The reason is to give thanks.

 

Today we pause and reflect.

We stop and give thanks

to the One who loves us so much

that He sent His only Son.

 

On this day we realize

how much God does for us…

every day, every hour, because He cares.

 

A grateful heart is what He wants;

just pure gratitude from the heart.

The thanksgiving that flows from inside

and it overflows to the ones around.

 

A whole day is dedicated to say thanks.

In the midst of a world that is ungrateful,

we stop and take the time to be thankful

for everything He has done in our lives…

for sending His Son to die.

 

All God wants is our hearts.

So today thank God for His blessings,

for His love and for all His gifts.

Be thankful and enjoy life

and you will bless Him back.

Dear Friends,

During Thanksgiving month I’m sharing devotionals on the topic of Thankfulness from my book Devotions for Working Women. Enjoy!

We Were Created by God’s Power and to Glorify Him

Romans 11:36 (NLT)

For everything comes from him; everything exists by his power and is intended for his glory. To him be glory evermore. Amen.

God created every one of us by His power. He has given us everything we have and made us who we are in Christ—one of God’s beloved children. We must not forget that. When this revelation is present in our lives, we feel confident and know we can do all things through Christ, the One who strengthens us.

Thank God every day for your life, your family, your job, and for all the gifts He has given to you. The purpose of everything He created is intended to bring glory to Him. You were created to glorify God with your life and in all you do. This includes your workplace.

Dear Friends,

During Thanksgiving month I’m sharing devotionals on the topic of Thankfulness from my book Devotions for Working Women. Enjoy!

Being Thankful Truly Honors God

Psalm 50:14, 23 (NLT)

“What I want instead is your true thanks to God; I want you to fulfill your vows to the Most High.” “…But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me. If you keep to my path, I will reveal to you the salvation of God.”

Psalm 51:17 (NLT)

The sacrifice you want is a broken spirit. A broken and repentant heart, O God, you will not despise.

The people of Israel used to give many offerings to God to obtain forgiveness for their sins. Many people turned this into a tradition with no true meaning or repentance from their hearts. God has not changed today. He has been and will always be, interested in one thing—our hearts. He just wants us to be thankful to Him for everything He has done for us, starting with salvation. What a gift! We must thank God daily and every moment for it. Giving thanks from the heart is what He’s after—a broken and repentant spirit willing to be changed, forgiven, and loved by God.

With today’s lifestyle we all try to do too much. Sometimes we commit ourselves to serve in work committees, kids’ activities, and even church activities—some out of guilt and sense of obligation. These activities may be good, but before we commit to anything new, we must make sure it will not take away time with the Lord. It is better to spend that time with Him than to be occupied with one more thing to do. We honor God by having a thankful heart and spending time with Him.

Dear Friends,

This month, I’ll be sharing with you devotionals on the topic of Thankfulness from my book  Devotions for Working Women. Let’s celebrate Thanksgiving the entire month. Enjoy!

Be Thankful for What God Has Done

Psalm 9:1 (NLT) I will thank you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done.

God loves the heart of a thankful person. When we are thankful to Him for all the things He has done for us, He wants to bless us even more. When we are going through bad things or circumstances in our lives, we tend to forget all the blessings God has given us in the past. It is in those times we need to remember what God has done for us and truly thank Him for every gift and blessing He has given us.

When we bring these things to our remembrance, it helps us get through the current situation. Our faith also increases, and we are able to trust Him again through yet one more thing in our lives. Thanking God is vital to our success in every area of our lives.

At home, thank Him for your house, husband (if you are married), children (if you have any), your friends, and family. At work, thank Him for your job, your boss, your employees (if you are in management), your peers, and friends. Thank God for letting you be His child. Tell people of the marvelous things God has done for you.
