I Could

by The People Pastor Bill Fix

I could step into a room and choose happy over sad
 I could look into my mind and be thankful for all I have
 I could wake up in the morning choosing praise & peace & joy
 I could remember that God gave us all of creation to enjoy
 I could look through all the pictures of family, friends, and faith
 I could be very grateful for God's loving mercy and His grace 
 I could preach a sermon about the love and joys in life
 I could tell of how my blessing includes a loving, patient wife
 I could tell of some great churches I was privileged to pastor
 I could tell how life seemed slow but now it’s moving faster
 I could talk about my aches and pains but that would not be fair
 I could ignore the many blessings of God's awesome tender care
 I could ignore the kindness or be thankful for all I've had
 I could tell you of the abundant life and how seldom I’ve been sad
 I could shrink away from failure and all that challenge me
 I could say it is not easy but through all, there is a victory
 I could run and hide when things get tough
 I could retaliate when folks are unduly rough
 I could live my life for Jesus and make the best of all
 I could remember in the journey God's helped me through it all
 I could tell you I’ve laughed, much more than I have cried
 I could tell how all His blessings are something I’ll not deny
 I could smile as I remember all the life that I’ve lived
 I could smile at life eternal and what my Savior did
 I could tell you that I'll not perish because I believe in Him
 I will tell you of His love for me, how being faithful is a win
 I enjoy and live the best life that I could ever live
 I thank my King for what He alone has given (eternal life)
