Deep in thought as I sit,
Pondering this life as it is.
It’s often not easy; sometimes not fun.
Yet it’s what we must do until our time here is done.
I wake up each morning, head into my day.
May I never rush on without taking time to pray.
So many decisions lie waiting for me.
How will I choose rightly if Him I do not seek?
So I spend time with Him as my day begins,
And I keep right on with Him until it’s at its end.
I pray for my husband as he guides our way.
I pray for my children, that they will not be led astray.
I pray for extended family, and for my friends too.
For those who are sick; for those who know not what they do.
For my church family, those we are called to serve.
May I point them to Christ with each action and word.
May I never forget what He has done for me.
May I always remember it’s His grace that sets me free.
I am not worthy. I am not good.
I am sometimes broken, other times misunderstood.
Yet I am here, day in and day out.
A vessel for Him, with a message to shout.
A loud voice, no, but a voice just the same.
Telling others of His love, speaking His name.
Still deep in thought of what is to come;
Of life after this… A victory won.
Beauty. Delight. Days filled with peace.
Like a perfect vacation. A day at the beach.
No worries. No sickness. No more goodbyes.
That’s what awaits us when we meet in the sky.
So in little ways and big may I reflect His love,
Because when this life is over, it has really just begun.
