A Grateful Heart Poem
A Grateful Heart
How do we express our gratitude? With our devotion and a grateful heart, my Mom often said.
This poem and picture together represents times in our lives where we have grateful hearts, but also have dark thorns of despair, and circumstances we can’t believe. If we can be patient and wait the new blooms will certainly come, as God’s mercy is new every morning.
The empty bench helps us be mindful that you should wait on the Lord. He will never leave you, nor forsake you, no matter what. If we cling to that hope it will be worth the wait!
Empty Benches help us fill in the blanks with our own stories. Poems help us articulate our feelings. All while giving thanks to God for He has chosen us, and it gives us the desire to devote Him with a Grateful Heart.
So in the meantime, this poem was written and reflects the storm that was brewing is only sustained by the Grace of God himself. Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus Christ as He is the only one who Can!.
Greatful Heart Poem
Our Heavenly Father has chosen us;
Through adoption we’re His heirs.
He gave His Son to die for us –
That’s how much He cares.
Because we are adopted
To be children of the King,
We’d like to express our gratitude.
And to Him a great gift bring.
No gift or anything we could do
Would to Him love impart
And more than our devotion
And a living, grateful heart!
