We Choose

We Choose

If we choose to be in the moment and be within the light
The pain and all the darkness will soon be out of sight

Stand back and watch your mind play out the dramas of all your fears
Be strong and overcome that scene and let God dry up your tears

For you can not think of God and keep fire in your heart
We all have the power of good if we only make a start

Be firm in your decision to not cause any pain
Keep kindness in your heart and the darkness will truly wane

Sometimes all his teachings are buried very deep
But keep digging and you’ll find His promises He will keep
