As I awoke this morning

my Lord spoke to me

Asking me if I was humble

so I got down on my knees

I began to thank Him

for another day

Then I gently asked Him

to help me walk in all His ways

I began to thank Him

for the many blessings that He alone bestows

I began to thank Him

for my very breath and salvation

to Him alone I do owe

I began to thank Him

for the hardships in my life

I began to thank Him

for my beautiful wife

I started thinking

of the things I am thankful for

Most importantly is my heart

how he never shut the door

For my heart is where Gods Spirit lives

It is guidance and conviction

that He alone gives

With the guidance and conviction

it is all up to me

Which path I take

it’s God’s path I do see

There is another path

not long ago I did travel

I rebelled against my God

my life it did unravel

I began to thank Him

for setting me in the right direction

I began to thank Him

and the Holy Spirit for correction

I began to thank Him

for the discipline I sometimes despise

I began to thank Him

for He alone is wise

For the direction and purpose

He has planned for me

For being a Wonderful Counselor

and the Prince of Peace
