Take A Moment Today To Truly Appreciate Something God Has Given You For One More Day

A poem from an anonymous user at thoughts-about-god.com poured their heart out to God in appreciation.

It’s important to give thanks to God on a daily basis, since it’s because of Him that we have a new day to live our lives.

The poem went like this:

Dear GOD:

I want to thank You for what you have already done.
I am not going to wait until I see results or receive rewards;
I am thanking you right now.
I am not going to wait until I feel better or things look better;
I am thanking you right now.
I am not going to wait until people say they are sorry or until they stop talking about me;
I am thanking you right now.
I am not going to wait until the pain in my body disappears ;
I am thanking you right now.
I am not going to wait until my financial situation improves;
I am going to thank you right now.
I am not going to wait until the children are asleep and the house is quiet;
I am going to thank you right now.
I am not going to wait until I get promoted at work or until I get the job;
I am going to thank you right now.
I am not going to wait until I understand every experience in my life that has caused me pain or grief;
I am thanking you right now.
I am not going to wait until the journey gets easier or the challenges are removed;
I am thanking you right now.
I am thanking you because I am alive. I am thanking you because I made it through the day’s difficulties. I am thanking you because I have walked around the obstacles.
I am thanking you because I have the ability and the opportunity to do more and do better.

I’m thanking you because FATHER, YOU haven’t given up on me.

Can you think of something specific that you can be thankful for? When was the last time you gave thanks to God and truly meant it?

I challenge you to think of something that holds true meaning to you, and take an honest moment to appreciate it. Even if its something or someone that doesn’t exist anymore, even if it exists in your memory, take a minute to appreciate.

Give the glory to God, Amen.
