God, You Are Good

copyright Bob Hostetler

God, you are good.
Recent days have been a slog.
My back has been bowed,
my mind a fog,
my heart leaden.

But you have come to me again, Lord.
You met me in prayer.
You sang to me,
relieved my cares,
and lifted me up.

God, you are good.
My eyes have been on all the wrong things:
people, circumstances, obstacles, problems.
You turned my head
and trained my eyes on you once more.

Thank you, God. You are good.
