Give Thanks In The Trials and Tests

choir-306766_640

It’s easy to give thanks when things are going good and smooth, but the true test of a thankful heart is giving thanks when we face all kinds of trials, tests, temptations and affliction. A good example of someone in the bible who had a thankful heart was Job. God blessed Job abundantly and when everything was taken away He still praised God. Below is a poem I wrote on thanksgiving.

With A Thankful Heart

With a thankful heart I lift my hands,

With a thankful heart I can dance.

With a thankful heart I praise you Lord,

With a thankful heart I adore.

With a thankful heart I look beyond the trials and tests I face,

With a thankful heart I know strength comes only by your grace.

With a thankful heart I long to know you more,

With a thankful heart I will soar.

With a thankful heart I seek your face,

With a thankful heart I love that secret place.

With a thankful heart that experiences hurt and pain,

With a thankful heart yet I will still praise.

I praise you Lord for all you have done,

I praise you Lord no matter what storm may come.

I lift my eyes to you with a thankful heart full of praise,

With a thankful heart who is totally amazed.
