 Thankful in Everything

It is so easy to complain and grumble
Words that you utter become mumbles
In the situations of life that you face
Helplessness has taken first place

There must be a solution somehow
If only you could discover it now
You know your health is at stake
Here are some steps you can take

Realizing your problem is the key
To begin the path in setting you free
This is the first step and a way to start
But a greater issue involves your heart

By knowing Jesus as your Savior
He will help change your behavior
In your own strength, you will fall
With Jesus, there is victory over all

Learn to be content in every situation
Wanting more does not bring consolation
God will faithfully supply your needs
Trust Him, who alone your soul feeds

Focus on loving God and you will see
He works all for the good of you and me
Thank Him no matter what happens to you
Not just in the good times, but the bad too

Romans 8:28 (NIV)
And we know that in all things God works for the
good of those who love him, who have been called
according to his purpose.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NIV)
Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is
God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
