God, show me how good it can get if

I put my trust in you instead of in my plans.

Show me how good it can get if

I worry less — much less.

Show me how good it can get if

I don’t try to change anyone or judge their life.

Show me how good it can get if

I spend more time thankful for what I have

and less time worrying it won’t last.

Show me how good it can get if

I harbor no jealousy.

Show me how good it can get if

I love myself unconditionally.

Show me how good it can get if

I stop trying to impress.

Show me how good it can get when

I slow down and rest.

Show me how good it can get

Rain or shine — summer, winter, spring, or fall.

Show me how good it can get when

Good — not best, not perfect, not more,

not all — but good is what I’m living for.

Show me how good it already is.
