Look at Life . . . and Learn

Photo by Carlene Hardt ©2007

Look at life, take a new view;
There are lessons to learn,
sort the false from the true.

Don’t let the past weigh you down;
Surrender dark recollections,
hand over that frown.

Don’t let the present overwhelm you;
Be realistic about what
you think you can do.

Don’t let the future cause you to fear;
Trust God, He knows all about it,
and He is here.

Past, present, future, life is your own;
With Jesus as Friend you need not face
your days alone.

Banish confusion, frustration!
Embrace God’s love, faith, and
shining expectation.

Be blessed with joy and peaceful glow;
Look at life anew with thankfulness
and learn to grow.
