Thankful - Poem by Jeanette Telusma

Almighty Creator,
I am forever indebted to You.
I am because You are.
Apart from You there is no existence.
No words or acts of gratitude could ever
Repay You for all You've done.
The very breath that I take is because of You.
How could I not take time out to express my gratitude.
I take this time to dedicate my thanks
To You, Almighty Creator.
Thanks for granting direction in my life.
Thanks for giving my life meaning.
Thanks for Your fortress of protection.
Thanks for my identity that lies in You.
Thanks for being a light unto feet.
Thanks for the Wonderful Shepherd that You are.
Thanks for being my Abba Father.
One I could always call on.
My heart is filled with reasons to thank you.
But yet, a million reasons could never compare
To all You've done, is doing, and will do.
Although this is true, I still take this time
To Thank You with all my heart.

    God is great and we have enough trust on him. His grace allows us to lead peaceful life. He grants direction in life. He gives identity developing values for beautiful life.
