I woke up this morning
And looked up at the sky.
I thanked God for another day
And for being by my side.
I thought of all my blessings.
The things God gives to me -
My family, my precious church
And material things I need.
I thought of all the happy times
He sends me from above.
All the many precious friends,
Who shower me with love.
I thought of all the many times
When my life gets rough.
When sadness, hurt, and sickness
Show me I'm not that tough.
I thought of how God takes my hand
And gives me awesome peace.
Reminding me He's in control.
He knows what's best for me.
I thought of how God lifts me up
Through Christians that I know.
Through their encouragement, love, and prayers
I know God loves me so.
I thought of God's great power,
How he shapes our lives.
Through good times and through bad times,
He will be our guide.
I thought about our time on earth.
It goes by so very fast.
But when we get to heaven,
The good times are going to last!
