I seem to be not always thankful

For the wonderful gifts you gave

The freedom to pray and worship

Or the fact that I’ve been saved

Neither am I grateful

To be in such a place

When I’m reminded of your goodness

To appreciate your grace

So, help me to remember

Help me to cherish too

The perfect and endless blessings

Your love for me makes true

How blessed are we to have the opportunity to praise and worship God? We spend so much time doing other tasks rather than spending time with God. In fact, we take people for granted, our jobs for granted, and even God for granted at times. If we want to see an increase of goodness, we must express our gratitude and thanks to God. When we wake up every morning and go on about our day, we have to cherish the passing times with God. Even when we get distracted and off-track, God still blesses us despite how ungrateful and unappreciative we are and can be. A lot of times, we do not even appreciate the power of prayer and instead, underestimate it. Therefore, be truly humbled by the power of God. Being thankful is being thankful for everything that He has given us. Romans 1:21 states:

“For although they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks to Him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.”

We have the utmost freedom to worship God but unfortunately, we take it for granted. God wants us to interact with Him, to have a meaningful and heart-to-heart conversation with Him, to reason with Him, to listen to Him, and much more. So, let this be a firm reminder to always keep God in your hearts and minds.
