I wonder as I sit along, in my comfy chair,
'what-ifs' flood my mind,
and then a nudge comes to my heart,
'look instead at what you can find.'
If I really, truly look, I will surely see
the thing I don't know I'm looking for;
and it will be right in front of me,
and Iíll know I need nothing more.
Sometimes it is so easy to look past what is there,
and cast around for something else to see
but all I need is already here,
overflowing gifts put here just for me.
I have a loving Savior, Who's there forever more,
He's the One who gives it all, pouring out from above;
He's the One who saw my heart, filled with longing so,
and gave to me my only one, the one that I would love!
When troubles seem to overwhelm, I need only look
and see the riches all around, heaped high, fresh and new,
and know that God is still in charge, and gave me all good things,
and best of all is the love we share, and OH HOW I LOVE YOU!!
