Thankful Thursdays

How many times in our lives have we had reason to thank God for this? I know for me it’s been a bunch of times. Thank You, Lord.cb168d8afd638d7bfdffd3c6ed1ee0ae

I wonder, friend, how often you have wept a bitter tear
And asked: “Why is this happening to me?”
“What step was taken wrongly to deserve this dreary fate,
What action brought about this tragedy?”
Only to find in time a vital reason for it all,
And Faith you thought so steady put to test,
To look back with such wonder at the workings of his hands;
‘Dear Lord, Thy will be done, and God knows best.’

It happens to us all, we are so mortal and so weak
All too human in our strange and earthly ways,
Falling often by the wayside on our journey through this life
Seeking light and fighting ignorance’s haze.
Truly friends, the help is there, for as ye seek so ye shall find
And at journey’s end how well you shall be blessed
If you truthfully can say without a doubt within your heart
Dear Lord, Thy will be done, and God knows best!
~John McLeod

  1. Loved this! I like the world’s shortest prayer “Thy will be done.” Got it from the Mitford series by Jan Karon, which I discovered through a dear friend who’s gone home to Heaven. Another one is “Lord, make me a blessing to someone today!”
