Thankful

I’m thankful for a God
Who doesn’t give me what I ask for.
When I would settle for glass,
it’s a gem He has in store.
When I’d be satisfied with less,
He delights in giving me more.

I’m thankful for a God
Who sends trials instead of ease.
A God who knows the safest place
for me, is on my knees.

I’m thankful for a God
Who, amazingly, loves me.
