once you wore a frown.
I give you life abundant into eternity.
Contentment, peace and joy are yours, as
you trust all to me.
I want to lead and guide you in
everything you do.
I am your help and counselor, you'll
find me always true.
When there are times of trials and
hurts, I'll be close at your side.
I'll hold you to my bosom, in me child

Just cast each care upon me, and know
I'll do what's best.
Remember that I love you, I am your

Always seek and put me first, your life
I want to bless.
Take time to be alone with me, to read

it's fresh and new.

trust all to me.
I am the God who made you, in me you are
Be confident in me alone, for life
that's full and sweet.
If the Lord Wills
often we assume, that we have days and
Then suddenly a "tragedy" and we are
brought to tears. We do not know what
lies ahead, or what a day may bring. We
need to seek the face of God, each
day in everything.
We cannot "boast" of future things, we
only have today. And that's not sure,
for in a flash, it all can pass away. We
need to call upon the Lord, to draw
close to our God, to turn our heart and
thoughts to Him, and to some that
may be hard.
For if "God wills" then we can plan,
our lives are in His hand, and what He
"wills" shall come to pass according
to His "plan."
We need to say "if God wills" than such
and such will be, and God wills only
what is best,
Dear friend for you and me.
So keep God in your thoughts and plans,
make Him the greatest part, and He
will give you peace and joy, to overflow
I Choose to be
choose to be joyful
though all my plans may fail.
When hurts and disappointments
seem all that do prevail,
I choose to be joyful
to raise my eyes above
and fix my gaze on Christ my King
the God of hope and love.
I'll not allow God's joy in me
to fade and die away.
Instead I'll stir it up again
remembering God's my stay.
He is my hope, He is my joy,
in Him I am complete.
If I had nothing but my God,
my life would still be sweet.
My Lord is always for me,
He's faithful to His word,
And every prayer within my heart,
in heaven, has been heard.
I'll not allow the negatives of life
to "Do Me In."
Instead I'll hold tight to my Lord
there's "Victory in Him."
I choose to be joyful
in a world that's sick and down,
God has wrapped me in his love
I wear a" winners crown".
Life is full of choices
and each one's up to me
in everything I choose "God's way"
and walk in "liberty."
Yes!!! I choose to be joyful
no matter what may come.
My joy is super-natural
because it's in God's son.
He is my joy in sorrow.
He is my joy in pain.
Though all be taken from me
In Him my joy remains.
choose to be Joyful
One day "I'll fly away"
to my dear home in heaven
forever…There to stay.
