What Matters

It doesn't matter
that my floor is cluttered,
or that there is laundry to be folded
and put away.

What matters is God
is always,
has always been,
and forever will be
good.

It doesn't matter 
that yesterday was full 
of mistakes and 
shortcomings and
failings.

What matters is God
reminds me to seek him,
redeems me from the pit,
forgives my sin,
and gives me new mercies
every morning.

 Today I want
GOD.
And by his grace
the desire of my heart
and the joy of my life
to be found in him.
Always.
