When I wake up to the morning light,
and know with the Lord everything's alright

When I have hot water for my shower,
and flick the switch and there is power


When the heat comes on to warm my skin,
and there's peace and contentment abiding within

When I have plenty of time to meditate and pray
or see the rainbow before it fades away

When I have nourishment to drink and to eat,
and clothes on my back and shoes on my feet

When my mate tells me that I am loved,
and I send thanks to God's in His heaven above

When I have enough money for my bills to pay,
and from the doctor's office I could stay away

When a son or daughter runs to my side,
with a happy expression and arms open wide

When the dishes are done and the night descends,
and there's no one to whom I must make amends

And even when the day starts out wrong
with heavy heart and no joyful song

And when my body fights against aches and pains,
and there's only storm clouds bringing more rain

When the road of life gets rocky and steep,
and my feet slip and slide 'til I fall and weep


When the night turns cold and the fire goes out,
and the enemy tries to get me to doubt


When death and sorrow have taken their toll
and I need comfort way down in my soul


How do I know?

Because these are the times when God's nearest to me,
when I put aside pride and from temptation flee.

When the peace of His presence fills me inside,
and He wipes away all of the tears I have cried.

When I know in my heart without fear or doubt
that God will restore my joy and my shout

~ A Note from the Author ~

How we praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing
in the heavenly realms because we belong to Christ.

If today it seems like life is
just one battle or disappointment
after another to endure, just remember

Take courage, for you have many people praying
to the Father through the Lord, Jesus Christ,
for His anointing to be poured out upon you today,
filling you to overflowing with His love, mercy, and blessings!

May today you feel renewal in your soul
and joy in your heart because... you are loved and
