Count Your Blessing Monday


It's time for Marci's Count Your Blessing Monday. A perfect time to really look over all the many blessings we have received and pick one (that's the hard part) that is our favorite for today. If you join in Marci's Count Your Blessing Monday please stop by her blog and leave a comment.
Today I am very thankful for Thanksgiving Day. A day that is truly a day to count our blessings and give thanks. I look forward to spending that day with my daughters and their families. A day we will spend laughing, talking, sharing memories and just being together. Yes, Thanksgiving Day is a wonderful blessing all on its own.
Below is a poem I'd like to share that was in my daily devotion.
"I Know"

** I know He is the beginning, so why do I worry about the end?
** I know He is the creator, so why do I wonder who will destroy?
** I know He has forgiven me, so why can't I forgive myself?
** I know He is a healer, so why do I speak of sickness?
** I know He can do all things, so why do I say I can't?
** I know He will protect me, so why do I fear?
** I know He will supply all my needs, so why can't I wait?
** I know He is my strength and my salvation, so why do I feel weak?
** I know that everything and everyone has a season, so why when
someone's season is over do I weep instead of rejoice?
** I know He is the right way, so why do I go the wrong way?
** I know He is the light, so why do I choose to walk in darkness?
** I know that whatever I ask of GOD, GOD will give me,
so why am I scared to ask?
** I know tomorrow is not promised, so why do I put off
for tomorrow what I can do today?
** I know that the truth shall make me free, so
why do I continue to lie?
** I know He gives us revelation, knowledge and
understanding, so why do I lean on my own understanding?
** I know I should live in the spirit as well as walk in the spirit,
so why do I choose to live in the spirit but walk in the flesh?
** I know that when praises go up, blessings come down,
so why do I refuse to praise Him?
** I know I am saved, so why do I refuse the word He has given me?
** I know He has a plan for me, so why am I rushing it because
** I am eager to do His will, when it is His time not my time?
