Unto thee,


          O God,

do we give thanks,

unto thee do we

give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.  

 Psalms 75:1





1 Thessalonians 5:18

In every thing give thanks: for this is the

will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.


Did you wake up this morning? 

Many people did not wake to see the

morning light. 

Is your heart beating? 

There are some that have stopped.

Did you have something to eat today?

Some children`s tummies are hungry.

Did you have a place to work all day?

There are some who cannot walk.

Some are looking for a job. 

Others are blind. 

Praise the

Lord for two eyes.

Did your child say `I love you`?

Lots of broken homes you know.

Is there a roof on your house?

You have a house some do not.

You are cozy warm. 

There are folk

who are cold.  The list is long for all the

blessings God gives to His children.

The fact is we do not deserve a

single one. 

So let us humbly get on our

knees and  thank the Lord for His bounties.”


This Day with God


  A Thankful Heart

 PG  45

  Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 Eph. 5:20. 


It would please the Lord if you would make an effort to forget yourself. Begin to thank the Lord for your home and your pleasant surroundings, and the many temporal blessings He gives you. By returning thanks to the Lord for

His goodness,

you can do something for the One who has done everything for you. Contemplate the depths of the compassion that the Saviour felt for you. For you He gave His life, suffering the cruel death of the cross. Can you not praise the Lord for

this? If you will hide your life in Christ, He will receive you.



 ST December 12, 1878

 The worst feature of this picture is, many who profess  to be followers of Christ pursue the same course as the unbeliever and thankless worldling. They take the gifts of heaven without

lifting the heart and voice to God in sincere thanks.  God has blessed them with comfortable homes. 

They lie down to rest in safety

because of the guarding care of  his ministering angels; but they arise in the morning with scarcely  a thought of God.

This is unlike the world's Redeemer. Although he owned  all things, he never broke bread without lifting his eyes and

hands to heaven in thanks to his Father, craving his blessingupon it.  Yet finite man, wholly dependent upon God, has no

sense of the debt of gratitude he owes.
