Don’t forget to thank God


I thank you God for this most amazing day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.

 

We may thank God that we can feel pain and know sadness, for these are the human sentiments that constitute our glory as well as our grief.

 

I don’t think you should spend your life praying for things, but I do believe you should thank God for what He’s given you… but I think the scripture teaches us that we can pray for our dreams, pray for the big things… he’s not a small God; this God is incredible.

Thank you, God, for the dignity and beauty of self. The precious innate self. The only thing that can’t be taken from us. The only thing we really own.

 

Thank you, dear God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough. Thank you for the rain. And for the chance to wake up in three hours and go fishing: I thank you for that now, because I won’t feel so thankful then.

 

I have never had anyone love me the way you love me. I have never loved anyone the way I love you. Thank you God for showing us the way to each other.

 

Thank God for the reality for which we were created, a moment-by-moment communication with God himself.

 

Thank you, God, because I am lucky. Also let’s face it, it turns out I’m black. And I’m having a career quite different from lots of people, so I feel doubly lucky.

 

I thank God for my handicaps for, through them, I have found myself, my work, and my God.

 

Remember God’s bounty in the year. String the pearls of His favor. Hide the dark parts, except so far as they are breaking out in light! Give this one day to thanks, to joy, to gratitude!

 

I want to thank you, Lord, for life and all that’s in it. Thank you for the day and for the hour, and the minute.

 

I thank God for my failures. Maybe not at the time but after some reflection. I never feel like a failure just because something I tried has failed.

 

The Sun you created is shining brightly under your command. The birds you set into the air chirp about your splendor. The flowers dance for joy at your greatness. And I have nothing more than a grateful heart to offer to you Oh Lord my God! Thank you for creating me.

 

On the recollection of so many and great favours and blessings, I now, with a high sense of gratitude, presume to offer up my sincere thanks to the Almighty, the Creator and Preserver.

 

O Lord, who lends me life, lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.

 

Thank you Lord, for being patient with me. For its so hard to see, when my eyes are on me.

 

I have lived to thank God that all my prayers have not been answered.

 

So live for the kingdom of God. Seek to bring glory to Jesus Christ and the Lord will use you. It is my prayer, my constant and daily prayer, that God would keep me useable.
