Living on this Earth I realized life can be tough,
I try my best to overcome obstacles, but sometimes my "best" isn't enough.
I try to remain positive and tell myself I'll prevail,
but instead, the very opposite happens, and once again, I fail.
And although these certain instances can leave me quite depressed for a while,
it is not long before I'm feelin' good and my face brightens with a smile.
But not because I'm bipolar or because I can easily forget my failure,
but because I am once again reminded of the works of my Savior.
I begin to reflect on His promises, His word, and what he does,
and my happiness returns to me as I am encompassed by His love.
Some people might find joy in food, music, money or their pets,
but I believe the joy that I find in the Lord is ultimately the best.
Sometimes things don't work out like I wanted or exactly how I planned,
but I am then happy because the problem is now in His hands!
So whenever I'm feeling discouraged, upset, or broken down,
I look to my Father for happiness because I know He'll turn it around!
