Sometimes, life is overcrowded with sadness,
gray and dreariness.
Sometimes, I succumb to the feelings of depression,
because I can’t seem to
see past the black edges of my own problems.
But, I am not the Master Painter.
He alone holds the colors if I’ll but give Him room to paint.
So, Master, color my life.
Color my life with shades of happiness –
basking in the joy of knowing you.
Color my life with shades of peace –
resting in my chosen lot.
Color my life with shades of exuberance –
amazed by the glories you reveal each day.
Color my life with shades of contentment –
knowing I’m chosen and secured by You.
Color my life with shades of fellowship –
that I may exult in You with others.
Color, til there is no more any room for the darkness I seem to beckon in.
Color, til I am a reflection of the glorious beauty that is You.
