How You Can Sing A Song of Thanksgiving


What are you thankful for? I have so many things to be thankful for that I can’t tell it all! I will say that I am thankful for how God has covered me! After my greatest blessings, my greatest trials have come! If it had not been for God’s grace and mercy, I don’t know where I’d be! I dedicate this day to my mother and the one who calls me, “CC!” I know that God is still in control regardless of what I see!

Although I haven’t reached my destiny, God keeps me on my feet! He knows that I’m not perfect, but I’m striving for perfection in my daily walk with Thee. Even when I fall, God doesn’t hand me over to the enemy! So, I’m thankful for Psalm 41:11: “By this I Know that thou favorest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me.” This is how I feel today, and I’m sure that I’m not alone in my thinking!

Hasn’t God been good to you? Aren’t you in your right mind? Is food on your table and shelter over your head? Do you still have friends and family? Do you have a portion of your health and strength? Your money might be funny, or your change might be strange! Hasn’t God still blessed you with plenty? Here’s how you can sing a song of Thanksgiving: Count your blessings! If you can, sing with me:

Someones standing in a welfare line
Or off the freeway with a hungry sign
Someones stressing bout to lose their mind
I gotta be thankful, thankful

Someone just became a single mother
Someone just lost a sister or brother
Its so important that we love each other
And be

Thankful, thankful
Ive gotta take the time to say, that I’m
Thankful, thankful
For every single breath that I take
Ive gotta be thankful, thankful

Someones sitting in a prison cell
Wasting away in their own personal hell
Everybody’s got their own story to tell
Ive gotta be thankful, thankful

Man, I used to think I didn’t have a lot
Now I realize just how much Ive got
Now every day I’m gonna take the time and stop to be


Any one of these so easily could have been me
But if it had not been for grace and mercy who knows where Id be

Ive been riding on this roller coaster ride
Round and round Ive seen the up and downside
And I’m here to tell you that the secret of life is being
