“Rejoice always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) 

In our support group, we are constantly are dealing with various hard topics. We just finished a 6-week topical study on depression, and at the end, I challenged the group to write a short psalm on a reason why you have hope or something you are thankful. Here is mine.
To acknowledge you, O Lord, is a way of saying thank you
Praising and glorifying you in all truth
My help, my rest is all in your amazing plan
Hope, future, and provision is your hand
My children are gift from above
Just a reflection of your amazing love
Vindicate my life
And thank you for my wife
Thank for my new life
Exchange life
Abundant life
Victorious life
Without Strife
For I always want be right with Thee
I believe
I will no longer be deceived
Jesus have mercy on me
I believe
Your love is everlasting
Your grace is all-abounding
Your is Word forever true
I praise you and thank you
This is a reflection of thankfulness
