What if Joy? Song

First I would like to thank Beth Alisan for encouragement to make my poem “What if Joy? into a song. Personally I was skeptical as song writing and poetry are much entirely different at least for me. But the idea kept nagging at me. Finally, I sat down with the guitar, prayed and worked on a melody over the last couple of weeks. By the way, I highly recommend the blog that Beth writes – Lessons from a Lab – I have always admired the multitude of life lessons that she has passed on to us while walking Adi, her Labrador Retriever. You can find it at https://wordpress.com/read/blogs/163893015

So thanks Beth and I hope you like this simple song. Have a blessed day all and no matter what you are facing, stop and ask the question, “What if Joy is the path that God is making to see me through?”

  1. Oh this is wonderful Pastor Pete! I pulled up your poem so I could sing along. The tune was so easy to catch on to! I’m glad you made the poem’s 2nd stanza into the chorus as that will echo with me as I finish out this day- “For God in grace bends down to lift our earthward looking eyes so we can see the mountain peaks for which His wings can fly.” I hope this song will be like a hug of encouragement from the Lord to those who hear it here on your blog and in the senior communities where you minister.
