Thanking The Lord - Poem by louis rams

I have to thank god every day
For all the good things he sends my way.
Even before a problem would arise
He is there by my side.

When I have a problem that is tearing me apart
I give it to his kind gentle heart.
When I am fearful of walking down
That lonely dark road
He’ll be there for my hand to hold.

Just like the poem footprints in the sand
He is there to give his hand
And when I can no longer travel the road
He is there to carry the load.

When my feet are cut and bruised
Because I no longer have any shoes
He is there to clean my feet
And cool down the burning heat.

He is there every step of the way
And I thank him every day.
He will love me no matter what I may do
And the best part is that he forgives me too.

He is a forgiving and loving god
Because he knows the human heart.
We do things that we may not think about
But, he doesn’t scold, or scream and shout.

he knows That we will make mistakes
And like a bird we will want to try our wings
And may do the unforgivable thing.
But just like a bird we will always
Go back to our nest, and from that
Point we will do our best.
