“Rejoice always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) 

In our support group, we are constantly are dealing with various hard topics. We just finished a 6-week topical study on depression, and at the end, I challenged the group to write a short psalm on a reason why you have hope or something you are thankful. Here is mine.

To acknowledge you, O Lord, is a way of saying thank you

Praising and glorifying you in all truth

My help, my rest is all in your amazing plan

Hope, future, and provision is your hand

My children are gift from above

Just a reflection of your amazing love

Vindicate my life

And thank you for my wife

Thank for my new life

Exchange life

Abundant life

Victorious life

Without Strife

For I always want be right with Thee

I believe

I will no longer be deceived

Jesus have mercy on me

I believe

Your love is everlasting

Your grace is all-abounding

Your is Word forever true

I praise you and thank you

This is a reflection of thankfulness
