With Thanksgiving eve now upon us,

I paused to count my many blessings.

As I counted higher and higher,

A sense of sadness came over me.


Upon my knees, I began to pray.

Lord, I don’t understand my life for

I have failed you in so many ways.

Yet, You bless me so abundantly.


How can this be—a sinner like me?

Your love is far more than I deserve,

And of all the blessings that I have,

The most precious of all is Your Grace!


I pray You shine a light on my path,

And guide me to serve You each new day.

Help me touch the lives of those in need

In ways that reveal Your love and grace.


Happy Thanksgiving and blessings to all!
