A Gift

"everyday I wake up whether it's 3 a.m. or 6 a.m. I thank God that I did"
~ Mike Pascuzzi
There are so many things we take for granted;
Things that we have just come to expect,
Just because, so far, they’ve always been there.
But being thankful…that, friend, we neglect.
God’s Word says we should ask for “daily bread,”
To recognize our constant need of Him;
Acknowledging that everything we have
Comes from above, from our Father in Heaven.
So, next time there is food upon the table,
Next time there’s clean water in the sink,
Next time you lay down upon your pillow,
And wake up the next morning…stop and think;
Each step we take is ordered by The Lord;
And only by His hand do we exist.
So we must learn to not take life for granted.
Today is not a given; it’s a gift!
“Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not change like shifting shadows.”
James 1:17 NIV
