Every day I love to wake and hear God’s voice,
My response is to let anyone who listens,
Know that God is the instigator of life,
This goodness that is ours to have,
From the morning sunrise,
To the setting sun,
Even in my sleep,
God dishes it up for our benefit.
Even when I tried to make my own path,
God didn’t forget me,
The lessons learned when I forgot God,
Are now etched on my heart.
Life without God at the centre,
Is a futile grasp at self importance,
Life is fully appreciated when God is most important,
The path to understanding this is difficult,
I wanted to give up,
Because, I thought God gave up on me,
This was not true,
God was leading me to incredible opportunity,
Far more than what I could create myself.
Now, I know my daily prayers are not wasted,
God loves faithfulness more than my activities,
My prayers are about my love for God,
Each new day an opportunity for more love,
A celebration of his loving care for me.
