My-favorite-Gratitude-Quotes-Action-Jacquelyn-14Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6 NIV


What do I have to offer you

Worry has given me a tankful

My mind has  little room left

To find a thought that’s thankful


I feel like a hypocrite

To offer you some praise

My feelings are not aligned

To muddled within the haze


Can I start with nothing

It’s a choice, my gratitude

I’ll approach God’s throne now

Adjust my right heart attitude


Like writing an appreciation note

There are lines full of blanks

Pen the words, one at a time

Soon a page is filled with thanks


With eyes on my circumstance

It’s difficult to compose

When reflecting on God’s wisdom

Receive the comfort, that He knows


I have something to offer

Praise, worship and thanksgiving

My heart is captured by God’s love

A settled rhythm of thanksliving


Even when I’m overwhelmed

Anxious to the brim

I choose to give God thanks

I’m blessed to honor Him
