Lord, help me to have a thankful heart, even if things seem to have gone wrong,
For it’s only by trusting in Your love, that the faith in my heart remains strong.
Help me to see what’s been good, and how You have touched my days;
Then, in thinking upon such things, my words will be given to praise.
Help me to thank You, in faith, for any specific blessing I might desire;
Let thankfulness be my “prayer” always, for it’s that which will lift me higher.
Help me to thank You in front of problems–there’s benefit and healing in laughter,
Believing in Your solutions before they’re seen–not waiting to have joy ’til after.
Keep me from forgetting to count blessings, or of thinking only of my own concerns;
For it’s in considering the various needs of others, that any discontent turns.
Help me to look to Your finished work…
