Today I threw out worrying, it was getting old and in the way.
It kept me from being me; I couldn’t do things God’s way.
I threw out a book on MY PAST (I stopped making time to read it anyway). So I replaced it with NEW GOALS. I started reading it today. I think I like it too, oh yes I do.
I threw out hate and bad memories,
(Remember how I treasured them so? Not any more my friend, no way they had to go.)
I got me a NEW PHILOSOPHY too, threw out the one from long ago. It was worthless and unfulfilling, posing as an awful show.
I brought in some new books called I CAN, I WILL, and I MUST. Love these new books. They make me feel empowered and gives me emphasized thrust!
I threw out I might, I think and I ought.
Wow, you should see how worn they were because of how much they were read, applied and taught.
During my in depth house cleaning,
I ran across an Old Friend, I hadn’t talked to in a while.
His name is Jesus, and I really like His style. He warms my heart with His welcoming gigantic smile.
He helped me to do some cleaning and added some things Himself. He beautified my house so much, oh boy you should see my shelf.
He added packages of PRAYER, HOPE, FAITH and LOVE,
I placed them right on the shelf all nice, comfy and snug.
I picked up this special thing and placed it at the front door.
– it’s called PEACE. Nothing gets me down any more.
Yes, I’ve got my house looking lovely and grande. Looks good around the place.
For things like Worry and Trouble there just isn’t any more space.
It’s good to do a little house cleaning, Get rid of the old things on the shelf, it makes things brighter and lovelier; maybe you should try it yourself.
