The Good Life



I get it so mixed up sometimes. I think life is good when it caters to my personal comfort
rather than when I commit/submit to God’s call, all for His glory…
…Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ  and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith—  that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead. 
Phil. 3:8-11


Life is good
Not because the wood-box is filled
and the sky or the oven spills works of art
Life is good
when I bow my want and will
To the One who sees the heart

Life is good
Not because an orchestra plays
And life is a light-footed waltz
Life is good
When I surrender pride’s chase
To worship the One that nature exalts
