So many things to Thank God for!

This season, when we think of renewal and rebirth, the earth warming for Spring, flowers coming up, trees budding, Easter coming…I am reminded of all the things I have to be thankful for. And my heart turns to expressing gratitude to God – for my life, for my salvation, for being there to meet my needs.

BlessingsNo matter what they are, not matter how big or how small, there is nothing beyond the scope of God’s ability and desire to help me.

He gave me a song years ago that expresses so many of the things I have to be grateful for. Sharing it here:

Chorus – Thank You Lord for being there for me

            Every time I knew I had a need of Thee

And thank You Lord for being there for me

            When I did not know there was need

Verse 1 – It’s so easy to thank You Lord for what we see

Like healing an illness or an injury

thank-you-g6149a656b_640Or when You circumvent certain tragedy

It’s so easy to thank You Lord

I want to thank You for all the things I cannot see

For all the trouble You have kept from me

And for Your angels watching over me

I want to thank You Lord

dvxgnwnywem-giulia-bertelliChorus – Thank You Lord for being there for me

            Every time I knew I had a need of Thee

And thank You Lord for being there for me

            When I did not know there was need

praying-614374_1920Verse 2 – It’s so easy when I think I have the perfect plan

And think I have the situation well in hand

And then the rug is pulled from under me and down I land

And I need to thank You Lord

Bridge – For my life could have been a lot worse, been a lot harder

But I have felt You there

Managing the pain, helping me in sorrow

You kept it at a level I could bear – – I know You were there

music-notes-2073069_640Chorus a capella – Thank You Lord for being there for me

            Every time I knew I had a need of Thee

And thank You Lord for being there for me

            When I did not know there was need
