Poem Video "Giving Thanks" Written By Timothy Jon Barrett
"Giving Thanks" came to me on none other than Thanksgiving Day as I was thanking God for all of his wonderful blessings. The more I prayed, the more rehearsed and ho-hum my prayer of Thanksgiving sounded. Don't get me wrong, even the smallest of things, we should give God thanks for, but for some reason I felt a deeper thanks was needed. I think we all get into a routine of thanksgiving, that frankly, God gets bored with. We thank him for shallow things, and material things that to my ears started sounding a little selfish. I mean,"thank you God for Kitty Bob" and "Thank you God for your spiritual gifts" are worlds apart. I guess I just feel a deeper thanks is needed in all of our lives. A deeper walk, A sincere praise, a hearty thanks, to a God who deserves it all and without whom we would all be lost, with nothing to give thanks for. We celebrate Jesus' resurrection one day a year, his birth one day a year and emphasize giving God thanks one day a year. IS THAT ENOUGH!!!
