Walking In Thankfulness

A poem of thankfulness #13:

Walking In Thankfulness
by Michael Romani

There in the goodness that is the God-ness
That waltzes right past guilt into innocence
With the grammar of faith we talk our talk
Knowing that thankfully, we'll walk our walk

It's a prepositional thought of our place
When we think of finally meeting God face to face
It's there in the poetry and in the prose
Life as a love letter we might pre-suppose

So many points of light we hold in deference
Certain that the ways of God are our preference
Saved from the shame and pain of my own sin
Struggling back to repentance again and again

So very thankful that in my woeful needs
God saves me for His good purposes and deeds
Putting my hand firm on the heavenly plow
And somehow muddling through for the better somehow

I stand amazed looking into the mirror's glass
Knowing that my moment of doubts will move and pass
Grateful that He changed this taker into a giver
Holding fast to the truth of God as my forgiver

Life has proven that God's dwelling place is with man
And this very notion that helps me be the best I can
Having received the gift of God's redemptive salvation
It is with humble gratitude that I keep this in my contemplation
