I Take For Granted

I TAKE FOR GRANTED

Each day as I awaken
My first thoughts are of You
The restful sleep You’ve given
I take for granted too

The beauty that I see each day
Sunrise, sunsets, wondrous views
Such a beautiful display
I take for granted too

The times that You’ve protected me
Of sins that would my life undo
How could I have failed to see
I took for granted too

The times that You’ve provided
When all the bills were due
The times that it was all supplied
I took for granted too

How can I begin Lord
To express my thanks to You
Thanking you for Your support
In everything I do

But most of all I thank you Lord
The way that You’ve changed me
I’m not the way I was before
Your love has set me free

I thank you now throughout the day
I am aware of You

Especially Your love, dear Lord,
I now take that for granted too.

COMMENT ON I TAKE FOR GRANTED

I so often take my blessings for granted.
Emerson said that if the stars came out only
once a year, everybody would stay up all night
to behold them.

Instead of thanking God for what I have I
take it for granted. Instead of being content
and satisfied I complain.

How can I tell if I am taking God for granted?
By the way that I live my life? Do I ignore God?
Do I ever think about Him, do I ever pray or
thank Him?

Jesus shows up in my life all the time, but if I don’t
stay aware I miss Him. He is there providing
opportunities. He is there when I have problems. He is
with me ready to help me at all times. Then when
things are solved I just assume that I did a good job.
That is taking Him for granted.

When I pray I feel like my prayers are too simple.
Here I am addressing the creator of the universe.

Then I remember the gift of the Holy Spirit. He is
always with me helping me, interceding for me.
Jesus died so I would have that comforter.

He nudges me, with Him by my side I cannot ignore God.
I cannot take Him for granted.

Ecclesiastes 7:14
On a good day, enjoy yourself;
On a bad day, examine your conscience.
God arranges for both kinds of days
So that we won’t take anything for granted.
