There are times when it seems awfully hard to find gratitude for the things and situations God puts into our lives. Here’s a little something on that topic and to make up for not having my mid-week Christian poem yesterday. Something that I a little hard to be thankful happened. My way of coping these days seems to be falling asleep too easy. More on what that something is after my coming Saturday appointment.
Thanks In Everything by Michael Romani More often than I'd like to admit There are things I just don't get Like why some days commandments play And other days, it's not so easy to obey Now maybe it's just I don't understand The particular way to follow the command The Bible clear states to be filled with the spirit But, there are days, I rather not hear it One such command is to thankful in everything Easily enough for good things but some days bring Things that stump us and make us question Though we do question with some hesitation Admittedly it's some times really bad attitude But, I find it hard to keep my gratitude Sometimes the painful needs to meet the stillness Digging a whole lot deeper to find our bliss That's when I revisit the Bible's unfolding revelation Deep in the midst of trouble I find contemplation And in these contemplations, I find my way to peace In God's sweet sovereignty, I find my release Everything we meet in life has passed through His hands And while that truth doesn't make it easier to understand I do find some comfort in knowing its all in His control That makes seemingly bad things easier in my soul I know the one thing that I've always somehow understood That our God is gracious and in all things He is good Because of this I know that even now I have nothing to fear Though at moments I am shaken, I will know I will persevere The dark threads of life are woven together for His good Everything is intended that I be conformed as if I could All that has happened and will happen is part of the story A story that will find me somehow, some way to His Glory All of this is told in the Bible and not happenstance My happiness and thankfulness is not dependent on circumstance Somehow, some way these things I know are by commission And so though I waver I enter into my full submission (c) November 8, 2018 Michael Romani All Rights Reserved
