I love finding where joy begins in life,
I have found the truth about happiness,
It’s been shouted out since a Eden’s foundation,
The open secret that is shared freely,
Begin the day with knowing your creator.
End each day with a celebration of your gifts,
Give a shout of appreciation that you are known,
Breath a sigh of thankfulness that justice is coming,
Never forget that God is making the decisions,
Arrogant power mongers will tremble before him,
Their day of reckoning will come soon enough,
The day of glory where humiliation is transformed.
Find something to beat that makes praise louder,
Sing it out pilgrim and learn to love today’s path,
If you have enough to eat and drink today,
And a voice to praise, then you have enough,
Know your place in this world, you are not God,
Your gift is that God gave you life and he shared it with you,
Take time to delight in that you can worship your Creator,
Love that only knows how to persevere and forgive.
From the shelter of finding where you belong,
Declare the gift of knowing what safe is,
Your searching and longings have found their answers,
The careless foolish insults flung out by stupidity,
Bounce off the protective arms that are trusted,
The best is reserved for the obedient child,
Their appetites are completely satisfied,
God decides when the seasons will shift,
Foolish pride thinks that we can change what God decides,
All this is obvious to a moment given to common sense,
Love has focussed his attention on blessing his children,
Kindness is showered on them day after day,
This is his gift that sharing the heart of praise again and again.
