Gratitude and Contentment

Standard

At The End Of The Day

SUNSET 4

At the end of the day just kneel and say

“Thank you, Lord, for my work and play”.

I’ve tried to be good, for I know that I should

That’s a prayer for the end of the day.

So when the new dawn begins to break

Just lift up your eyes, let your heart awake

Be ready to meet what the day may send

And be ready to greet every man as a friend

Nobody knows what a power you have found

So do what you can for the others around

Carry them high when they seem to be low

As on your way you go.

Compassion 19

At the end of the day just kneel and say

“Thank you, Lord, for my work and play”.

I’ve tried to be good, for I know that I should

That’s my prayer at the end of the day.

Gratitude 5

I believe that one of the most important ways we can praise God and please Him, is to have a grateful and a contented heart. Depression melts away when we start to thank God for everything He has given us, instead of being resentful about the things we want but cannot have. We are so thankful for our children and grandchildren. We realise that they are all a gift from God. When we look back over our lives we are reminded of the many times our earthly parents, teachers and friends have taught and helped us. It is the same with our Heavenly Father God and our Heavenly friend Jesus. Many times we have been protected and guided by the hand of God.

THANK YOU 6

The words of the following song are so true. 

THANK YOU LORD FOR YOUR BLESSINGS ON ME

Written and sung by The Easter Brothers.   (Listen to the tune on You Tube) 

As the world looks upon me, as I struggle along They say I have nothing, but they are so wrong

In my heart I’m rejoicing, how I wish they could see

Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me

Chorus

There’s a roof up above me I’ve a good place to sleep

There’s food on my table And shoes on my feet

You gave me your love Lord And a fine family

Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me  

Now I know I’m not wealthy, and these clothes ,

they’re not new I don’t have much money,

but Lord I have you And to me that’s all that matters,

though the world cannot see Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me

Chorus

There’s a roof up above me I’ve a good place to sleep

There’s food on my table And shoes on my feet

You gave me your love Lord And a fine family

Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me.

This poem is so true also.

Thank You, God, For Everything

Thank you, God, for everything,

The big things and the small.

For “every good gift comes from God”… The giver of them all.

all too often we accept, without any thanks or praise,

The gifts God sends as blessings, each day in many ways.

And so at this Thanksgiving Time,

we offer up a prayer…

To thank you, God, for giving us a lot more than our share.

First, thank you for the little things That often come our way,

The things we take for granted But don’t mention when we pray,

The unexpected courtesy, the thoughtful, kindly deed,

A hand reached out to help us in the time of sudden need.

Oh, make us more aware, dear God, of little daily graces

That come to us with “sweet surprise” From never-dreamed-of places.

Then, thank you for the “Miracles” We are much too blind to see,

And give us new awareness of our many gifts from Thee,

And help us to remember that the Key of Life and Living

Is to make each prayer a Prayer of Thanks

And every day Thanksgiving

By Helen Steiner Rice

THANK YOU 9

I love this Psalm from The Holy Bible. I think it is a promise from God to keep us safe when we totally give our lives over to Him and completely trust Him, because Jesus the Son of God gave His life so that we could be reconciled to God.

Psalm 91

1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

3 Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.

4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,

6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.

  7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.

8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.

9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling,

10 no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.

11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;

12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

15 He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honour him.

16 With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
