There Are Days

There are days…
I wish I could return
To the days of old
People and things I once loved

There are days…
Yet I know that can never be
Besides that, I couldn’t take with me
Knowledge, wisdom and experience I’ve gained

There are days…
But I wouldn’t want to trade
How the Lord has grown and changed me
Compared to who I used to be

Lord, Today is the day
I want to focus on You
Not on my problems or trials and tribulations
Help me to find joy in You today

Five Minute Friday – Look Unto Me

Look unto Me, my daughter
Gaze upon my holiness
My righteousness untainted by sin

Look unto Me
Start each day by reading my Word
Holy Scripture which is active and alive

Look unto Me
Keep short accounts and unbroken fellowship
Repent, turn and follow Me

Look unto Me
Guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus
Be sanctified and set apart unto Me

Look unto Me
I will equip you for every good work
Strengthen and sustain you for what lies ahead
