An Attitude of Gratitude !

in-everything-used-with-permission-ibible-verses

An attitude of gratitude,
is content in every way
it knows material wealth
only brings spiritual decay.

It sees worldly things,
cannot really satisfy
nor can they fill the void
or the emptiness inside.

No matter how it feels,
it never acts hard pressed
it may feel down and out
but never overly stressed.

An attitude of gratitude,
knows God’s in control
it finds true contentment
and joy fills its very soul.

It can be hungry,
but not feel hunger’s pain
it may be thirsty
but never feels the strain.

It wants to share,
with everyone that it can
the Good News it has found
in God’s eternal plan.

An attitude of gratitude,
is an act of faith with grace
you can see the ones who have it
by the smile on their face!

2 Corinthians 4:8-10
King James Version

“We are troubled on every side,
yet not distressed; we are perplexed,
but not in despair; Persecuted,
but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
Always bearing about in the body the dying
of the Lord Jesus, that the life also
of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.”
