Far Reaching Thoughts
My thoughts soar like an eagle; there is no limit to their domain.
My body has limits but my thoughts have no chains.
Where they travel, I control
I can choose for them to fly high or for them to crawl low.
My heart has decided to follow after Christ.
I’ve given Him control of my life.
I will direct my desires to holy things,
My thoughts are offered as an offering.
Faith, hope, and peace, with words of comfort, and words of praise,
Are the kinds of thoughts I choose to raise.
The Word of God and its teachings I will gladly speak.
My God’s perspective in life I choose to seek.
On the wings of eagles I soar to the heavenly place;
Up the Holy Mountain of prayer; under the banner of God’s grace.
Oh heart, direct your thoughts upward, remembering the great work of the cross.
Remember in your prayer-time God’s great concern for the lost.
Compose words of thanks and praise in songs to sing,
To glorify and to testify of Jesus Christ your King.
Far reaching, soul seeking, thoughts, fly from place to place,
Administering strength to my heart and to others within God’s embrace.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
