“Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.” Psalm 100:4

 (Send as an Inspirational Christian eCard)

Thanksgiving and praise

Fill my heart;

To speak of Your works,

Where can I start?


Too numerous to count,

Too glorious to say,

Such are Your deeds,

Such is Your way.


Above all and in all,

Indeed through all things,

You are my Creator,

My King of kings.


Without You, Lord,

Life itself would end;

You sustain and love me,

My God, my Friend.


So with thanksgiving

I enter now Your gates;

For You, You alone,

My heart celebrates.


I dance in Your courts

With praise and song;

I sing of Your glory

All day long.


Indeed I praise You

For all eternity;

How can I not sing

Of all You do for me?


Your glory shining

Is brilliant to behold;

The beauty of Your presence

Brighter than gold.


I live by Your Word,

By all that You say;

You are Life, Love,

Truth and the Way.


Yea, thanksgiving and praise

Forever fill my heart;

Glory to You, O God,

How great Thou art.

    Caroline, thank you for sharing the beautiful poem.

    I would like to share with you a New Year’s prayer.

    ~ A New Year’s Prayer ~
    May God make your Year a Happy one!
    Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,
    But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
    Not by making your path easy,
    But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
    Not by taking hardships from you,
    But by taking fear from your heart;
    Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,
    But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;
    Not by making your life always pleasant,
    But by showing you when people and their causes need you most,
    and by making you anxious to be there to help.
    God’s love, peace, hope and joy to you for the Year ahead. Amen
    – Be strong & take Heart, all you who hope in the LORD. Psalm. 31:24 –
    ~HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014
