Thank You, Lord, for the Good Life(by Fenny West)

Thank You, Lord, for the Good Life

Thank You, Lord, for the good life You prearranged for me to walk in before I was born. In Your infinite wisdom, You ordained all the pathway I will have to pass through for this good life. 
I bless Your name that nothing takes You by surprise. All my days were perfectly planned before any one of them came into being. 
I will have no cause for regret because of your Spirit Who instructs me in the way I should go in line with my vision for my life. Even when I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I know that You are with me and You are preparing and furnishing me in the good life You prearranged for me. 
Therefore, I will count it all joy when I encounter difficult terrains, knowing that all things walk together for the good of those who love God and are the called according to purpose. I will not fret or be moved or flustered because I know that God is good all the time and all the time God is good. 

You said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you until the end of the age. Fear not, I am your God. Fear not, I will help you. I am your God. I will uphold you and retain you with My victorious right hand of rightness and justice.

He who has begun this good works will accomplish it until the day of Christ Jesus. You are leading me to my green pastures. You are leading me in the pathway of righteousness for your name’s sake. I will never miss my way. I walk by faith and not by sight. My path shines ever brighter to the full light of day. 

Wherever I am, I know that I am living the good life you preordained for me. Just as the prison worked for Joseph, so shall my quarantines and cocoons, work for me as you prepare me for my throne as you did for Joseph. Even when my move cause me to be exiled from my kit and kin for a season like Moses was, I know it is to prepare me for my calling. 
I will always see my life through Your eyes and know without a shadow of a doubt that you are working behind the scene. In the fullness of time, my vision, purpose and assignment shall speak and not lie. 
Thank you for this Good Life You planned ahead of time for me. I will not regret it even for one moment. Thank You for this abundant and abounding life in Christ. Christ in me is my hope for glory. Christ is my life. Christ works in me and through me. I am going from glory to glory and from faith to faith and from glory to glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Are you thankful?

Giving Thanks is Good

Giving thanks is good

if it’s understood

It gives the glory

To the High and Holy.

It acknowledges:

‘You make the difference.’

And it makes the room

For another boom.

Giving thank lifts Him

Who holds all your dreams.

The wise will welcome

His Kingdom to come.

Attitude of Gratitude

Attitude of Gratitude

Triggers a great altitude.

Therefore, I will sing and praise;

Give glory, His goodness blaze.

 

For, the Lord has done great things,

For which I am glad and sing:

Dead in trespasses and sin,

He raised me up from the bin.

 

 

I will make my boast in Him,

Because there is none like Him.

For great is His faithfulness,

Mighty, His lovingkindness.

 

Even for the things to come,

I know His will, will be done.

Praise God for work in progress.

What is coming will impress.

 

Praise, with reckless abandon

Like David, let praise be born

And carried on eagle’s wings

Proclaim the marvellous things.

 

Even when a sacrifice,

I will dare to pay the price,

Because I know, He will lift

Bless, give joy, give me a gift.

 

Like Paul and Silas, I praise;

At mid-night, I‘ll pray and praise,

And my God will intervene;

Do beyond what has been seen.

3     On an instrument of ten strings, On the lute, And on the harp, With harmonious sound.

4     For You, LORD, have made me glad through Your work; I will triumph in the works of Your hands.

5          O LORD, how great are Your works! Your thoughts are very deep.
