Verse I

As the world looks upon me, as I struggle along
They say I have nothing, but they are so wrong
In my heart I'm rejoicing, how I wish they could see
Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me


There's a roof up above me
I've a good place to sleep
There's food on my table
And shoes on my feet
You gave me your love Lord
And a fine family
Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me

Verse II

Now I know I'm not wealthy, and these clothes , they're not new
I don't have much money, but Lord I have you
And to me that's all that matters, though the world cannot see
Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me

Repeat Chorus, then:

Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me

    If we look back at the old testament when salvation was not an easy thing to have i cant stop giving thanks to God for the cross and for these songs that at most times when i seem to backslide reminds me of God's blessings and promesses unto my life. Every day that passesby i give thanks for life, for the family he gave me, protection and above all i give thanks for salvation. Thank you Jesus Christ for the cross.

    Grace: it"s by grace we are saved. Gods riches at christ expense. He payed the price. For all who will believe and put thier trust in him. There was a man who new not god. Who was not a disciple or follower or servent. But christ new him. By his beliving. And by grace god took this man to heaven. Thank you god.

    Too often i become caught up with my husband's and my current problems. We both have serious health problems. Over the past year he has begun suffering from grand mal and smaller seizures. I have ms and mas. Ms stands for multiple sclerosis, and mas is multiple auto-immune syndrome which is a fancy term to explain how i am constantly being diagnosed with other illnesses because my auto-immune system is in overdrive. For example, i also have adult onset asthma, colitis, crohne's disease, auto-immune hepatitis, eczema and psoriasis just to name a few of my chronic illnesses which will never completely go away. My health concerns has resulted in my receipt of social security disability benefits, and my husband is now attempting to get disability benefits because of his seizures. Prior to the seizures he was unable to get work after being laid off over three years. We lost our home and most of our belongings three years ago.

    It is so easy to look at our problems. It is even easier to look at all we don't have which our family and friends do have. What i so appreciate about the song, "thank you, lord, for your blessings on me," is it makes me refocus the lens through which i view my life. Instead of despairing about our continued lack of money and home (we live in a cheap motel and have done so since we lost our home) or our health problems, this song reminds me of what we do have. We have a roof over our heads, we have a nice, comfortable bed on which to sleep, food to eat, each other, internet connections, cable television, each other and the many new blessings which the lord bestows upon us on a daily basis. Just having the lord love us is a huge blessing. We have so much more than what others might see, and definitely much more than we often realize or acknowledge. This lovely gospel song reminds me to count my blessings and to see just how much the lord has blessed my husband and me. While both of us currently have chronic, incurable health problems, we are able to take medicine to gain some control over our illnesses. My ms may now restrict me mostly to my bed, but thanks to the internet and also my love of reading, the perimeters of my world goes much further than the four walls of our motel space. We are richly blessed -- much more blessed than money and things could ever suggest. So thank you, lord, for your blessings on me!
