The Best

My life’s a miracle.

Each breath I take…each time I wake.

So often I miss it as I rush and I strive;

My soul feels the strain…frantic pace to survive.

I’m distracted from the peace Jesus offers to me.

Distracted by perceptions of what needs to be done;

The miracle of God’s presence is silenced as I run.

So many “good” things put my heart to the test;

So focused on “good” things…I don’t notice God’s BEST.

I cry out to Jesus to come, BE my Peace;

From the pit of distractions bring me your sweet release.
