How To Appreciate

As I sit here and look over my life,
it's not all that bad,
I don't have much but I have more now than I had,
I tend to gripe about the small things,
Forgetting about the good things.

I am God's child I am saved,
I use not act well behaved,
now that I have given my life to Christ,
Things appear harder now than before,
It's because the bad things I use to ignore.

I didn't care if I sinned and came short,
Nothing I did had an effect upon my heart,
So chose to do as I pleased,
Never thinking about my soul,
And how my heart could be relieved.

I lived for the moment back in the day,
Not ever taking the time to pray,
A few years ago I took a chance,
I allowed myself to take a stance,I chose to live right no matter what the cost,
Many friends I lost,
They chose to stay in the world,
I had to go.

My soul was more important than the world,
Instead of living for Satan,
I live for Christ,
Appreciation I seem to forget,
When times get hard,
I know someday I will get my reward.

Now I shed tears,I hurt inside,
Behind a smile is where I hide,
Because in the mist of it all,
When I'm lonely I have a father to call.

The days may seem long and bored,
And the nights may seem a little dark,
I know my savior has my heart.

If I had to way the odds,
the good and then the bad,
Living for Jesus Christ is the best,
Life a person has ever had..

Shonnah, welcome to FW. May I make a suggestion? It would be nice if you would create a bio. Maybe I'm too inquisitive, but I like to know a little bit of the person who is doing the writing. You have the ability to express your inner thoughts, and that is a good quality to have.
