To count my many blessings
Whenever I get tired or stressed.
This is better than worry
And from tensions brings a needed rest.
Worry tends to fret and nag.
It's wise to just not let it start.
When I think about my blessings
Worry then will soon depart.
I daily choose to focus in
On all the goodness of the Lord.
This changes worrisome perspective,
Bringing joy as its reward.
"Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits."
Psalm 103:2 KJV
