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 one who is grateful for God putting his footsteps on the right path. Hi is thankful for his 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.

Diana,

I am so glad to hear you have God in your life.

He can change the hearts of many.

He has gotten me through many rough times in life, plus taken away my fear for surgeries.

Have a wonderful day.

We would all be in a bad place without the hand of God on our lives.

He healed me many years ago from depression and I am also so thankful.
