Lord I come before You,
desiring to provide thanks.
Father, I have so much to be thankful for,
things unseen and seen,
that You have done in my life.
Lord, mostly I am thankful
for the relationship that I have with You.
Lord, You initiated this relationship,
by what Your Son endeavored to accomplish,
paying the price for my sin,
redeeming and reconciling me.
Dear Heavenly Father,
You know the times I complain and grumble
about life and its circumstances, about suffering,
going through what seem endless trials and tribulations.
Yet God You are and always will be there with me,
even when it seems like I am forever in the wilderness,
running farther and farther from You,
You, my God are there guiding me back to Your loving arms.
I am thankful Lord for everything
that You allow to cross my path.
Thankful for the decisions that You allow me to make
and the lessons that come from these decisions.
I’m thankful, Lord,
that You have truly set me free, that I am a new creation
Thankful Lord that You have given me joy unspeakable.
Thankful Lord that You are long-suffering,
allowing me to mature in You!
Lord, words do not express my thankfulness.
For Your mighty power is at work in me,
transforming me, renewing my mind.
To You Lord belong thanks eternal.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
