When I ...
Awaken in the morning, may I thank the One who opens the eyes of the blind.
Begin to stir, may I give thanks to God who frees those who are bound.
Sit up, may I thank the One who lifts those who are low.
Stand upright, may I thank God for raising those who are bowed down.
Step upon the ground, may I thank Him for giving us earth upon which to walk.
Get dressed, may I give thanks to the One who clothes the naked.
Put on my shoes, may I thank the One who supplies me with every want.
Walk, may I thank God for making my steps firm.
Wash my hands and face, may I thank Him for bestowing upon me His loving-kindness.
Nourish my body, may I praise the One who brought bread from the earth and fruit from the trees.
Serve, may I give thanks to Christ who showed me His Servant's heart.
Work, may I give thanks to God for my mind and my body.
Hear good tidings and joy, may I remember the One who is good.
Hear heartbreaking news, may I recall He is sovereign and wise.
Am tempted - may I thank God for His Spirit and strength.
Am filled with angst or pain, may I give thanks to God for such suffering that leads to Him.
Doubt, may I thank Him that His Word that never changes.
Stumble, may I confess and praise His holy name.
Return to my house, may I thank Him for establishing my home in heaven.
Lie down to sleep, may I whisper thanksgiving to the One who gives me His peace and purpose.
O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
1 Chronicles 16:34
