Thanksgiving Day 2017

By Sindy Nagel


I’m thankful for my God above

And for Jesus, His own Son

I’m grateful for the Holy Spirit

The Godhead, Three-in-One


I give Him thanks for His great love

It’s deeper than I know

I thank Him that He’s always present

Everywhere I go


I’m grateful for His promises

To be my strength and peace

I’m thankful that He hears me

When I get on my knees


I appreciate His promptings

To be more like His Son

I’m grateful for His guidance

His truth and great wisdom


I thank You, Lord, this special day

Thanksgiving Two O Seventeen

For being the most loving Daddy

That this world has ever seen


I bless You now as You bless me

You are my Number One

From the first light every morning

Until each day is done


You meet my needs and my wants

More abundantly than I ask

You’re attentive to my longings

I know that’s no small task


Father, Son, and Holy Ghost

I praise You for all You do

May my life be a witness

Bringing glory and honor to You


Happy Thanksgiving to My Father,

To Your Spirit and Jesus too

I’m grateful for Your sacrifice

And for everything You do!



My chains have been broken

I give all thanks to Thee

I now know the Truth

And the Truth has set me free


You loosed my restraints

Where once I was bound

The chains and the shackles

Fell straight to the ground


The bondage of slavery

That once held me tight

No longer has hold of me

Against it we fight


You arm me for battle

Your sword at my side

Girded in righteousness

Behind Your shield I hide


Your helmet, my salvation

Your belt of truth on my waist

And Your gospel of peace

My feet will carry all my days


Still the most precious gift

You’ve given to me

Your Spirit in my heart

Seals my identity


A child of the King, I am

Adopted by Your grace

Your love fills my heart

Your joy shines from my face


Forever I’ll live with You

In all eternity

Forever I am grateful

That You died on Calvary


Your death paid my ransom

The debt I owed to Thee

You defeated my opponent

I will claim my victory


My chains have been broken

I give all thanks to Thee

I now know the Truth

And the Truth has set me free

Give Thanks in Everything

Joy and Thanksgiving

by Sindy Nagel

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not put out the Spirit’s fire (1 Thessalonians 5:16-19).


I’ve put in you a joyful heart

A gift of my great love

When others look upon your face

They see your God above.


Give thanks in every circumstance

You meet along the road

This is My will for you in Christ

Who carries your heavy load.


My Spirit deep within your soul

Lives only for My name

He guides you in My will for you

Don’t quench My Spirit’s flame.


Your constant prayers and grateful heart

Are blessings unto Me

Living in My will for you

Will set your spirit free.


Be joyful always; pray non-stop

Give thanks for all I give

Listen to the words I speak

In abundance, you will live.

Let us rejoice

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.  (Psalm 118:24)
