WHAT MAKES YOU
By Dean Beaty
Are the things
for which you’re thankful, centered in the Lord?
Do you look for
strength and guidance, found within His word?
Can you see that
all life’s blessings come from God alone?
Then with truly
thankful hearts we come before His throne.
Can we count His
grace and mercies given us each day?
Or the love that
God has given, that won’t pass away.
Add to that,
we’re held securely, safe within His hand.
Then with joy
we’re truly thankful, just as God has planned.
Have you read of
heaven’s beauty? Gone all tears and pain.
There no sin or
evil enters, righteousness will reign.
Glad reunion with
our loved ones, never more to part.
How could we do
something less, than have a thankful heart?
But if the things
of earth so temporal, gladden you today.
You can not be
truly thankful, for they pass away.
We must choose
what is important for eternity.
will be eternal, when the Lord we see.
