“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 N.I.V.

When you’re tired of this life

And we often are

Tired of the news being bad

Constant repairs on the car.


When you’re health’s declining

And the bills pile up

The harder you try the worse it gets

Nothing at all in your cup.


When your child’s in trouble

And nothing you can do

Or your spouse walks out

Shocking and surprising you.


Be filled with gratitude!


Circumstances may not change

Life may still be tough

The difference will be in you

How you respond when it’s rough.


Don’t deny the realities

But look for something

That you can praise God for

Let Heaven with your praises ring.


God is walking right beside you

Guiding you through the storm

So if nothing else my friend

Let that keep you warm.


Be filled with gratitude!

-d.f.a.v. 11/24/13

Being grateful with you,
