Rejoice

Rejoice, do not be sad,
You are alive and can achieve so much!
What else to be said?
Be glad for you are a Christian and should be as such.

Be happy and let not your hands go down –
God is with you;
He is Strong to put on you a PhD gown –
Rejoice, God’s love is your support everywhere and always, it’s true.

Not only this, but you love Him truly.
He, be sure, sees this
And will reward you duly.
Rejoice to hit the target and not to miss.

Be friend to God

Be slave to God and not to men.
Fear God on all your ways.
Be not afraid of people now or then.
May God prolong your days!

May they be filled with health and joy!
Fear God and not men to achieve your goal:
You have a smart head, employ!
Keep straight your back and sound your soul!

Believe to achieve

View_of_Jasper_City_from_Whistlers_Mountain
There is so much you can achieve!
I know, it’s hard to embrace,
But at any point believe,
Whether on earth or in space.

Be clever

Love God with all your heart,
Always in prayer, thank for success.
If you have problems, use them to improve your “learn and move on” art –
By doing so you will achieve more, not less.

Be cheerful, with lightness in heart,
Know that night will not last forever.
The morning is soon to start!
In the meanwhile, be clever!

Life is too short

Life is too short
To be sorry about little things.
Ahead there is a reward
With wind blowing up your wings…

Night does not last forever,
Darkness is followed by light.
You can achieve, you are clever!
Look around, what a wonderful sight!

We may get upset

We may get upset
Because something doesn’t happen as we have set.
We tend to give up
Or to pretend it was not our tea cup.

We tend to forget when we get a lime
That all happens in God’s time.
So, let’s proceed with hope
That with His help we will achieve, we will cope!

Continue doing good stuff

Bow Lake beim Icefields Parkway

Victories are not for good,
But we relax and lose the place where we stood:
We achieve one thing and stop
Instead of trying to make a longer hop.

Failures are not final
Even if the injury is spinal,
But we tend to give up after the first try
Whereas more effort we are to apply.

Remember to give a good cause another chance –
Be it in business or in romance;
Success is to be enjoyed and built upon.
Failures are to be endured and conclusions are to be drawn.

Improve

Consolation-Lake-Szmurlo
It’s never too late to improve,
Believe the Bible and try.
No one is to reprove.
With God you can achieve all though you are shy.

Trust in God and be strong

Little-animal

Trust in God and be strong.
Your hardships will not last long.
With God you will show strength.
You will achieve your goal, you will have health.

In time of trouble let God be your Delight.
Even in darkness keep light in sight.
You will win and offer thanks and a cheerful song.
Trust in God and be strong.

Shine your way

Chickadee
Shine your way,
Do good things whatever they say!
Have salt in yourself and have light,
Make your chemin* bright!

Rely on God and go!
In terms of helping people are slow.
You are beautiful, strong, and smart.
With God’s help you will achieve all, just do your part!

* French for “way”.

Lord, You are the Same

Moraine_Lake

Oh Lord, You are the Same.
You are still with us, You still cure;
You can still heal a person who is lame.
When we travel, You make our way secure.

Oh Lord, You are the Same.
Your Love is so Pure, so Deep.
You help us achieve any good aim.
You still care for Your sheep.

How great Your deeds are in our lives!
You help us cope with all.
You are beside, however deep man dives.
Oh Lord, save us all, rich and poor, big and small.

When I pray, I know You hear my prayer
Because You are the Same.
You are with us, with a jobless and a mayor.
You hear all who call upon Your Name.

You have a talent

You have a talent.
Those who cannot see are blind.
You are beautiful, you are smart, you are gallant.
Stay strong, keep open your mind.

When your talents will flourish like buds,
It will amaze all.
Your knowledge and talent will break through like spring floods;
Your achievements will be discussed by scholars in a university hall.

Stay strong, keep loving your heart;
Be nice whatever they say.
Be kind and joyful to start.
Work hard, study thoroughly, remember to play.
