Coffee for Your Heart- Thanksgiving

 

By Susie Teramura

 

I will

Bless You,

Thank You,

For all You

Have done,

And all that

You are.

 

You, beautiful one

Wrap Your

Love around

Me like a

Cloak of golden

Dawn, new

And fresh.

 

You, holy one

Dress me in

These robes

Of righteousness

Spotless,

 

Bought with

The highest price,

The precious

Red blood

Of Your only son,

 

Your heart of love

Bleeding out

All over me

And now,

I am forever

Marked

As Your own,

 

Forever sought after,

Forever wanted,

Loved and accepted,

Forever part

Of the family,

Welcome

At the table,

A part of You.

 

And the rest,

It’s history.

What’s ahead

for me,

Is life with You,

Life in You.

 

And nothing

Can separate,

Nothing can

Condemn,

 

Nothing can be

Too much,

Too far,

Too bad,

Too messy,

Because You said

It doesn’t depend

On me,
It is resting

On You.

 

You are

The one with

The plan

And You

Are the one

Working it out,

In me and

For me.

 

So here I sit,

Perfectly loved,

Intimately

Cared for,

Heard and seen,

 

And in it floods,

Like the morning sun,

Breaking free

From the clouds

That hid it

My heart welling up,

In thanksgiving.

 

Isaiah 61:10

I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

  1. This is gorgeous. What a beautiful, poetic message of His Rescue Story and how it ends with the only appropriate response: thanksgiving. Loved this!

  2. I like this all and it was part of my devotions this morning – thinking especially of being gathered as a family at the Lord’s table as we gather at our Thanksgiving table — reread Isaiah 61 — so meaningful – thanks, Susie and thanks to Jesus.

  3. Susie, I love your poetry…the robe of righteousness…His Blood covers all our sin, past, present, and future…our only Hope…thank you for stopping by an leaving a comment on my post from Holley’s place…many blessings.
