Thanksgiving crowds out selfish pride,
and quietens your fears,
and quickly it will override
anger, and selfish tears.
Thanksgiving turns your thoughts again
from grievances and grief
to look to others’ needs and pain
and seeking their relief.
The world suggests to empty all
your worries from your mind.
We pass them up – on God we call –
his guarding peace we find.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hears and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6
