A List

There is no need to keep score
Make a list of what you’re thankful for
Write down every little thing
Medium sized, large, everything
Make a list of them all
Whether great or small
It is a good thing to do
This most definitely will help you
Having a heart of gratitude
Will put you in a good mood
Whether you stand or sit
Read your list to hear it
If you think on these things
You’ll see peace your list brings


There once was a girl named Hannah.
She had a new and fancy camera.
And everywhere she walked,
The camera sure did talk.

She took pictures here and there.
She took pictures everywhere.
But, then all of a sudden one day,
She did not want to come out and play.

She began to feel down and blue,
For she wasn’t sure what she should do.
This bothered her day and night.
Her life was becoming one big fright!

She tried to handle it the best she knew,
Because that was all she knew how to do.
But then, it came one day to her.
That she had better find some help for sure.

Hannah then got down on her knees,
And said to her Lord, “If You please,
I need Your mighty help today,
For there is absolutely no other way.”

She began to cry and fret.
Oh, how this did let,
The truth to be revealed.
Oh, how she wanted to be healed.

She then stopped crying to wait upon her Lord,
And took out the great and wonderful Sword.
She opened up this powerful Book.
All she needed to do was look.

Her eyes began to read a Psalm.
Wow! She felt peaceful and calm.
Closing her eyes slowly,
She no longer felt lowly.

The Lord had helped her through,
A time when she was feeling blue.
Why did she not go to the Lord first thing?
He wants to help us with everything.

“I will trust in You,
If that’s the only thing I do!”
She got up from her knees to stand.
Ready to take her camera and walk the land.

Renewed and happy she went.
She will walk where she’s sent.
Hannah’s faith and trust grew a lot,
Because of the One she sought.

So, if you are down and blue,
You can go to you know Who.
The Lord. The Lord is the One,
To where we should always run.

The Lord helps us in our need.
He gives us healthy feed.
Why does He do this for you?
Because His love for you is true!
