My life is not my own
It's mine to live for Him,
Though often in this I fail
I leave undone, and sin.

But He is e'er so patient
And seeks my fellowship,
He sent His Only Son
That in Him, I could live.

He's blessed me throughout life
I owe my all, everything,
I'll praise my Lord each day--
He's given me a song to sing.

For it's only through Him
I find sweet rest and peace
He's saved my soul from death
And in Him, I am at ease.

So every day I live
A gift from God above,
I'll live it to His praise
I'll live and share His Love.

That others, too may know
This Great and Awesome God,
Who reigns o'er all supreme--
Thus in His way I'll trod.

I thank the LORD everyday
He has given me something to say
And to share with others,
My Friends, my sisters, my brothers!

To God Be the Glory!

We've all been given soooo much we could spend a lifetime just naming the blessings.  Thanks for sharing.

God bless,

It is evident you know from whom your blessings flow.  Lovely word of praise from your pen.  Love, Joyce
