Looking Ahead

Life’s not just a game everyone thinks they’re playing; 
Look back, then look ahead to see what I’m saying.

Drowning in details?  Take a new look today;
Gather the evidence and see what the facts say.

You’re building on accumulations, so keep on track;
Notice the necessities, admit what you lack.

Put those thoughts into words on paper for review;
Set a goal for today and figure out how, too.

        And . . . 

Conquer any depression, anger, and fear; 
Talk to the LORD, you remember He is here.

Expect some challenges ahead, and try your best,
Each trouble is just another growing-up test.  

Grow stronger when you open your heart and pray;
Look ahead with new confidence right now, today.
