Do you know it's Me speaking to you
When you have a thought that's good?
Have you ever thought to quit smoking?
That was Me saying you should.
Have you ever thought to exercise more,
And eat better to lose weight?
Have you thought about forgiving someone,
And love them instead of hate?
Have you ever thought about what you say?
Curse, complain, and lie;
Have you thought not doing it anymore?
You wanted to at least try.
Have you ever thought to read your Bible
Instead of what you'd rather do?
But you didn't read, and then felt bad...
Because I tried to get you to.
Have you ever thought to go to church
Because you haven't been in years?
Have you thought to witness to someone
So you can face up to your fears?
Have you ever thought about controlling anger?
Or thought to watch less T.V.?
These are just a few areas I speak
To help you become like Me.
Was there a time you took a step
Toward something good to do?
But after a while, you chose to give up...
That's because the devil told you to.
He doesn't want you to change,
And improve in any way;
He'll give excuses like, "it's too hard."
"You can't do it," is what he'll say.
There's good and evil thoughts...
Thoughts to live, thoughts to die;
I'll help you be your best,
But Satan will persuade you not to try.
