God’s Blessings

This is one I wrote for my Christmas calendar a couple of years ago…before God gave me a better poem. I’ll post the one I did use in a day or two. This seemed so perfect for the calendar, but I worked on it myself without asking God’s help. It just has never felt right to use it. I think it was the last poem I tried to write without His help. I do much better if I pray first and ask what He wants me to write. I’m not saying He didn’t help me on this one; just that it wasn’t something He led me to write.

God’s Blessings

The blessings God bestows on us
Throughout the whole year long,
Should be appreciated and
Should make our faith grow strong.
So many people concentrate
On all the things they lack.
They want and whine and moan and say
Their life is very black,
When all they’d have to do would be
To open up their eyes
To see the blessings all around
And bright and sunny skies.
So trust in God—He will provide—
And thank Him every day
And you will find life easier
As you go on your way.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!

God bless,
Denise McKenney
