Thank Offering – A Triolet

Yesterday I was trying to decide what to write for my Thankful Thursday poem and couldn’t seem to think of anything. It’s not that I’m not thankful – on the contrary, I’m feeling quite thankful about many things. The Lord has blessed me in so many ways. Then I thought of just writing a triolet of praise to God.

Thank Offering

A thank offering of praise to our Lord
Rises from the lips of His beloved
I am His beloved, you are His love
A thank offering of praise to our Lord

Holy Spirit soaring high as a dove
Lifted up on praises offered above
A thank offering of praise to our Lord
Rises from the lips of His beloved

Then Hezekiah said, “You have now dedicated yourselves to the LORD. Come and bring sacrifices and thank offerings to the temple of the LORD.” So the assembly brought sacrifices and thank offerings, and all whose hearts were willing brought burnt offerings. 2 Chronicles 29:31 (NIV).

    Thank you Linda. God’s timing was perfect as always. He truly spoke loud and clear to me this day. Thanks again. Richard:)

  2. I loved this Linda . . .another Psalm like one, beautifully full of praise and worship! Thank you and God bless you! I needed my thankful reminder tonight!

    • Deb, I love how the triolet form lends itself to Christian poetry so well. I like that idea that this is “Psalm like” – it gives me ideas for another triolet. :) Peace, Linda
