Be thankful for what you have, for some may not even see
Think about all the food you joyously feast,
Ponder on the food that is wasted and the garbage you throw away
That garbage for someone could be a morsel for them to eat that very day
Consider your place of habitation and the vehicles you drive,
The cruises, vacations and flights you take,
Even the choice of gas you decide,
Someone has to walk here and there or even hitch a ride
While others may never sail the seas or take a peaceful flight
O’ consider the nice bed you rest in, with warmth to cover you to sleep
Someone have to use newspaper to cover them as they sleep in the streets
So many clothes and shoes to choose at your will,
There is someone who’s been wearing the same pair of clothing year after year
With money in your pocket to spend, pay bills, and engage in thrills
There is someone who has nothing and whose sufferings is their deals
Many are starving as hunger torments,
Moreover, we have abundance and access to blessings
All that’s required is to repent,
Death and Life is at our hands to choose,
As Blessings and Cursings trample the land,
We are blessed beyond measure with the ability to obtain.
There is so much evil throughout the land, if only men would call upon his name.
He is the blessor and the escape from an impending captivity.
Even though you may not have what you want to,
Be thankful for all things,
For someone…somewhere…wishes they were you,
As they are void of understanding his name.
The name of the LORD is a strong tower:the righteous runneth into it. and is safe (Proverb 18:10)
