Leave anxiety and look to the light

‘Prove what is good and acceptable, and perfect will of God.” Rom 12:2

We gain more joy, and strength increases

As we leave anxiety and look to the light,

When we cast our cares up on the Shepherd

Faith stands still and fears take flight.

‘Tis the humble attitude that pleases God

This the Bible so clearly says,

Never lose your sense of peace and gratitude

There is tremendous power in praise.

Time opens a fresh vista each passing day

Let’s leave within it meaningful deeds,

And as we tread upon life’s ever-changing track

Give thought to the roses and not the weeds.

His strength will sustain through each given hour

Direct your steps at a more gentle pace,

You’ll find although some things have been denied

Something better has taken place.
