I wanted to keep my feet on the ground
now my feet are on higher ground
You gave me a sense of direction and more
my sense of worth You fully restored.
When I was a child I had faith to leap
without thought or care of my balance to keep.
When I was young I’d set out for adventure
now I seek once more to venture.
You gave to me the power of CHOICE
now in these things my soul does REJOICE.
You’ve given to me a platform for life
Joy, Peace and Love
that come from above.
Your victories triumphant are mine to apply
To life situations, I do more than get by
You gave to me such liberty
Now, with such blessing I am free.

Life is not for reflecting on things upsetting
and always thinking I want to be getting.
Help me to keep my focus on You
life is not for feeling blue.
Help me to choose what is right
beneficial and pleasing in Your sight.
Blessed Jesus, pave my way
to brighter and better days.
You did not say this life would be easy
but that I can always come to You freely.
Of Your blessings there's more and more
until I reach those Heavenly shores.
Teach me at all times, to be truly wise
not to settle for doubts and lies.
When things get hard
to keep praising You is what I must.
Teach me to bring my thoughts into line
with Your Words that are truly divine.
You are with me from week to week
Your Presence always, I will seek.
