Somewhere

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

 

 

 

 

Somewhere there’s a place for me-
A place I have a need to be.
A new plateau, a goal to meet-
Purpose, direction, without defeat.

 

Oh God, give me strength
to greet each day-
with a cheerful countenance.
Don’t let me sway.

 

Please let me focus
on the issues of life
That bring joy to others,
that relieve their strife.

 

To have victory over
the enemy called “Fear”-
The energy and stamina
to persevere!

    I think it is so important to start the day with a cheerful heart. It sets the tone for my whole day.

    This is so pertinent today, and every day. While our specific troubles and challenges are not necessarily a shared experience, the truth that God will give us the strength to persevere certainly is!!! Thanks for sharing your heart and connecting to ours!!!
