BEST BLESSING IN 2022
Grateful to God, the Source of 2022 gifts
My heart praises HIM with worshipful bliss
For innumerable blessings from His heart of love
Indeed perfect, timely, custom-made for me; thus best.
The Lord’s presence* keeps me blest midst gladness-glow
Since my soul He assures with redemption’s security
To vanquish angst brought by condemning guilt
Making my 2022 surely triumphant.
Safeguarded in the Creator's gentle hands
Along His omnipotent truth- guidance against harm
My steps are propelled to tread toward righteousness-paths
Directed well, though allured by glistening ephemeral stardom.
Led through the omniscient wisdom of the Sovereign Master
My mind wins over qualms that uncertainties pose
Since He knows my all including future stature
Even health and well-being He sustains.
With the Saviour’s protective-seal
Conquering attacks of crises-filled strain
My faith is strengthened for prayer fervency
As I abound in gratitude midst stewardship fruitfulness.
Thankful for the Saviour’s light that illumines against doubts
My spirit basks around His forgiveness’ embrace
Resting in serene mercy that settles unbelief
For vibrant sharing of wondrous hope.
Endowed with role-fulfillment privileges
My commitment is empowered by the Lord
To serve by His offered partnership settlement
Conquering temptation, upholding vow of devotion.
In the Almighty’s compassion-fortress, verily shielded
I remain joyously blest among family and friends
While reaching-out for mission pursuits
Extending blessings to multiply.
*Psalm 16:11 - Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
