A Healthy New Start

Noah carried out God’s plan
In building the ark
To wash away sins
And to give a new start

The flood destroyed everything
But never again though
For the symbol of God’s promise
Is the beautiful rainbow

Today, God can provide music
For our ears, laughter for our soul
And a rainbow after every storm
Because His Son makes us whole

His Word provides food for the mind,
His Son creates light to a better day
And by accepting Him as His Son
Our sins are washed away

Today, we can walk with God again
With a mighty strength
The blessing of the Trinity
All together within arm’s length

So accept Christ as Savior,
Study scripture as fundamental
And take care with exercise
For our bodies are God’s temple

Build great memories
That continue forever after
With fewer times of worry
And many more of laughter

Reminisce about good times
Or an old song
To give joy in thoughts
To last the day long

Pray without ceasing
And make a mental list
Of all those precious moments
When He was there to assist
