With praise and thanksgiving to God....
Willing hearts that can speak
Within our souls humility running deep
Praising God with prayers as we seek
Giving thanks even while we weep
Thankful for a sowed harvest now to reap
Joyful sounds from our spirits leap
Even when we hurt with wounds that seep
Moving towards God even though we creep
In quiet and stillness His voice we will hear
He will wipe away every single tear
We will never be afraid or have fear
No matter the outcome with God it cannot scare
To His heart we are held close and dear
He paid the price, He made it clear
The Kingdom is now, it is right here
It is gratitude to God that draws us near
Trusting God with our souls to keep
Not fearing the future in our sleep
Lessons we learn then must teach
Thankful hearts overflow to help the weak
Pride released to become humble and meek
Gratitude allows redemption to be reached
Glimmers and glimpses of Heaven can then leak
Grateful to God for the blessings given to each

"He says, 'Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.'”
"Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s."
"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well."
"Yet be sure of this: The kingdom of God has come near."
"Jesus replied....'the kingdom of God is within you.'"
"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
