Thankful and Content

I am thankful for my eyes that see, Your creation, your power and nature so clearly. But should you take this gift away, I would be most content, for it can often cause me to stray. I am thankful for the legs that carry me, To do your work and meet my fellows in need. But should you take this gift away, I would be most content to sit at your feet and stay. I am thankful for the keen mind given me, By it, I may think and dwell on ways of Thee. But should you take this gift away, I would be most content to more quickly find your narrow way. I am thankful for the health given me, To serve and minister with bended knee. But should you take this gift away, I would be most content and prepared for glory’s day. I am thankful for the many gifts given me, To be a faithful steward of them in word and deed. When you decide your purpose for me is complete, I would be most content to live forever with Thee.

Building a foundation of truth and endurance, of love and grace,Training her children as they prepare for life’s marathon race.Knowing that her influence leaves an everlasting imprint on each heart,While prayerfully committing the inward transformation as the Father’s part. Her heart’s cry…Be gentle yet steadfast, my Lord, with these as they go,Faithfully watering and nurturing the seeds you and I sow.Diligently pruning weeds and wild vines wherever they grow. That when our lives on earth do end,All my little one’s hearts You will mend,And in eternity together, we will...
