Sing praise to the Lord when you're feeling blue,
Though it goes against what you want to do.
Thank Him for all the battle's He's won,
And the hurdle's you've already overcome.
Try not to dwell on the problem at hand,
But on learning to live by God's command.
Hiding His word deep down in your heart
Will give you the perfect place to start.
Don't let your feelings define who you are.
For you are God's child and He'll search wide and far,
To bring you into His loving arms;
Where He'll shepherd and shelter and keep you from harm.
So let's practice the principle of opposites.
When down,practice up to stay out of life's pits
In fear display courage; when angry, you bless.
And when you are sad, proclaim happiness.
Becoming aware that you feel as you do,
Instead of the feeling becoming you,
Is an insightful key to emotional health,
And a skill we must master, then share the wealth!
