Why so downcast, O My Soul? What do you have to complain about, really? Your life is so blessed don't you forget. Even if the day is quite dreary.
This mood has been growing for days now though. For you haven't taken time to pray Over the cares and concerns that are within you. Now your pity-party's well under way.
God showed you some things that He wants to change Then others showed you some more. You then added to that the list that you have And burdened yourself to the floor.
Well, pick yourself up oh doubt-prone soul And take it to God in prayer! The only opinion that truly will matter You'll find when you take yourself there.
God reveals what He does not to make you feel bad He's revealing the chains that need breaking. And He'll be faithful, if you let Him, to break those chains And offer freedom that's yours for the taking.
So rejoice oh my soul and be happy within me; Your salvation draweth nigh! Keep your eyes set on Jesus for in Him you will find That on eagles wings, you will fly!
My husband and I have been married for nearly 22 years and together have two teenage kids, Originally both from NY, we've moved around just a little bit (NY, VA, TX, PA & now FL). I love Jesus, spending time with family and friends, laughing, and getting completely lost in a really good book. Oh and the beach. I really like the beach.
I hope you enjoy your visits here and that you'll come again soon.
