This Day is Mine to Live

Post by Shirley Baucom » Mon Jan 19, 2015 12:50 pm

This Day is Mine to Live

How wonderful it is to be alive
And face a brand a new day;
To know that God is here with me;
No matter come what may,

Night has passed, yesterday’s gone;
Now a new day is mine to live;
Sunshine or rain, all will be well,
For God is with me, His grace to give,

I pray I will trust every moment;
That each step I take, He will guide.
And whatever is best for me this day,
With love and grace God will provide.

May my heart give praise through the day,
For mercy and grace He’s given to me
As He has loved me… may I truly love Him
And be the best person He’d have me to be.

Through me, may His grace reach out,
Drawing others to praise Him, too.
Not just for today, but for every tomorrow,
May God be exalted in all that I do;

When daylight fades and night draws near,
I’ll lift my praise for this day so blest,
And hope that I have served God well,
And honored His name by doing my best.

When darkness takes over, in God I will trust,
To keep me safely throughout the night,
That He'll give me peaceful rest and sleep
Til darkness gives way to morning light.

I praise God for every minute!
