Poem: Thank You, Lord

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Thank You, Lord" is about being grateful for God putting his footsteps on the right path.

He is thankful for God's unconditional love, for keeping him safe from harm and comforting him when he is weak.

God forgives him when he complains and reminds him he is not alone.

He wipes away his tears.

Thank you Lord
for placing my footsteps
on the right path,
for showing me unconditional love
when I am lost.

For holding me in your arms
to keep me safe from harm,
for opening my eyes
so I can see,
for comforting me
when I am weak,
for standing with me
when I am alone.

Thank you for your forgiveness
when I complain
my glass is half empty,
when I know it is you
keeping it half full.

When I feel like I cannot go on
thank you for reminding me
I am not alone
for wrapping your arms around me
wiping away my tears.

God has been there every step of the way. I praise God for His Strength in all things.

— Diane Winbush
