Thankful Thursday

There is so much to be thankful for. All of the time. Always. Somehow we get so caught up in our own lives that we forget of all the blessings that we have and we start to stress out thinking that we don't have enough or we that we need more things. Here's a little poem I wrote based on that.

I sit here on my bed
Thinking with a hurting head
Jewelry on my desk
Shoes looking their best
Clothes picked up off the floor
and yet I want more

All of this stuff
it just doesn't seem to be enough.
I'm not truly satisfied
I have a hole deep inside.
So I got out and shop
and then the little feeling stops.
But it's only temporary
and I feel at a loss.

I finally realized that there's more to life.
There are so many people with hurt
no food, no money, and lots of strife.
I realized that they need to see Jesus in me.
Because I haven't been acting like Him lately.

There's a song to be sung
and a tune to be hummed.

I get so caught up in my own world
that I spin and I twirl until I feel like I am going to hurl.
But I realized that there's more to life than just things.
There's a entire world out there waiting to be set free.
So once I'm whole again than I'll go out and make sure
that everyone sees the love in me.
