grateful

i’m so in awe of our great God
and His great grace
humbled and overwhelmed
by His unfailing love and care.

Being grateful changes my world
what I see
how I focus
realizing that there is always enough
to be thankful for
to sit in awe of
to revel over
to be astounded by
to far surpass any struggle
or circumstance I stand in the midst of.

If only I choose to
get my eyes off of
these temporal things
and onto Him.

If i ask Him to show me
open my eyes to see
instead of demand that He do
wonder why He didn’t.

He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters,
He refreshes my soul.

Beyond all things
I am grateful
that He always refreshes my soul
…always…
when my soul is set on Him alone.

 

Psalm 23:1-4
The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters,
He refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for His name’s sake.
Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff,
they comfort me.
