I’d never grasped the reason why,
However how hard I may have tried,
I could not ever get it right.
My dreams did not seem to take flight.
And then, I looked inside of me.
And saw what God could plainly see.
The energy that I put out,
Was bringing fear, sadness and doubt.
My “thank you” tank was getting low,
While my “poor me” tank overflowed.
The “I love me” tank wasn’t there,
Which didn’t draw the ones who care.
I’ve asked the Lord if He’ll please fill,
The places that are empty still,
Now I will live with gratitude,
And have a brand new attitude.
I asked the Lord to “fill ‘er up”
And He has overflowed my cup.
