Our most gracious, merciful, loving Heavenly Father, I come to you today in praise and thanksgiving.
I am so grateful for the bountiful blessings you have chosen to bestow upon me. Please forgive me when I take these for granted but today, Lord, I want to give you thanks for things that may seem strange in this world.
Thank you Lord for the times when I was afraid for they taught me that you are my strength and are faithful to hold me up with your righteous right hand.
Thank you Lord for the difficult people in my life, for they have taught me how wonderful your grace is towards me.
Thank you Lord for the times I have felt defeated, for they have taught me that you are my shield and the lifter of my head.
Thank you Lord for the times my heart has been broken, otherwise I may have never felt your sweet healing and experienced restoration in my soul.
Thank you Lord for the times I have felt lonely, for I have known your loving presence and felt the shelter of your strong arms.
Thank you Lord for failed crops, for where I planted the wrong seeds at the wrong times, you have shown me mercy.
Thank you Lord for the rain, for now I can fully appreciate the comfort of basking in your sun.
Thank you for the times I have felt weak, for your mighty strength has sustained me.
Thank you Lord for my trials, for they have refined my faith.
This day and always, I desire to give you all praise, honor and glory and to give you thanks in all things.
