Thanking God for Everything

When you wakeup in the morning, thank God
For many others, yesterday was their last day
When you open your eyes, thank God
Many others are still in complete darkness
When you move your hands and legs, thank God
Many others don’t have or cannot move theirs

When you sit or stand, thank God
Many others don’t have the strength to do that
When you walk or run, thank God
Many others are unable to do the same
When you brush and bath in clean water, thank God
Many others are not as lucky as you to get clean water

When you have your hygienic food three times a day, thank God
Many others don’t have any food even once in a day
When you drink clean water every one hour, thank God
Many others are deprived of clean drinking water for years
When you have all those little snacks in between, thank God
Many others never had these luxuries of snacks between meals

When you go to school/college, thank God
Many others never had any proper education
When you go to your workplace, thank God
Many qualified people are still jobless
When you come back home safely after a journey, thank God
Many others who started the same journey couldn’t come back

In each and everything you do, remember the less fortunate
Before complaining, remember to look down
And see those who are not so blessed like you
Thank our almighty God for his immense blessings
He has bestowed upon you
Have an attitude of gratitude 24×7

God bless you all. Praise the Lord.
