Lets Take Inventory

Every business takes inventory
around the end of the year
perhaps we should take inventory of our
experiences ─ right here.
I was a procrastinator too often,
and didnít do what I should.
I didnít stay in touch with folks
the way Iíd planned I would.
I didnít read the Bible or pray enough each day;
I let too many other things,
somehow, get in the way.

Sometimes I let too many doubts flood in
and fill my soul,
until my heart was victimized
and not in my control.
Then Iíd let my faith get weak
and my mind would fill with doubt,
Iíd be lost in some dark valley
with no way to get out.
Sometimes Iíd let depression
just overtake my heart,
not realizing that itís up to me
to make a brand new start.

In the dark times of despair,
Godís Word would filter through,
and then Iíd learn ─ itís up to me
to do what I must do.
To have faith in Jesus and His love
and decide how I would feel,
and realize the Bible
is the only Word thatís real!

On otherís we can have no say ─
no governing control;
only on our attitude ─ do we have final rule.
No-one can steal our joy or
fill us with depression,
unless we give them authority
to wrap us in oppression.
Through the Word of Jesus,
and with His abiding love,
we can conquer any foe, if we keep our eyes above.

This year strive to gird yourself
in Godís own precious Word,
for its only in His glory
that your life can be assured.
Just know that Satan has no power
that wonít fall to defeat,
as long as we stay grounded
and worship at Jesusí feet.

Donít let others steal your joy
or strive to put you down,
just put a smile upon your face
to wipe away the frown.
Let His joy flood through your heart
and start the year out right,
and trust in Jesusí holy love
to put all fear to flight!

Put God first in all you do in twenty and eleven,
and at yearís end we all should be,
a few steps closer to heaven!
