About and Acceptance or Don’t complain

Welcome
This blog is a record of some of the work I think God (You) does with me. I hope you can find something to enjoy! The following words or song is what I use at the moment in my conversation with God (You) either because the words feel right or if I have no other good words to offer Him, throughout the day, during all my tasks, if I am not too busy. I find it helps me stay connected with Him instead of distracted and hope it can be helpful to others too.
If it is not, perhaps it can inspire others to write their own words or song, based on formulas given by their own faith and the joys and challenges given in their own lives. the place where they interact with God, what they hope to achieve and how they work to attain their goals. I hope it can be of some help anyway. The words here are mostly inspired by my understanding of the 10 Commandments; the verses are in that order and I have added my understanding of the 10 Commandments to each verse, below the music manuscript in image format. The verses were made with music in mind.

Thank you to both “X” and “Y” for kindly creating a beautifully professional manuscript for the tune and lyrics to Acceptance or Don’t Complain and for giving me permission to publish it here.

This is the pdf format and the same in image format:

“Acceptance”
or
“Don’t complain”

1 Trust God (You)
You are everything to me
Your connections are forever on
You are here today, I know, though how or where may change in
time
You always will be nestled in my soul
You are everything to me

2 Know He is (You are) everything
You abide with those who care
Caring for all things and for themselves
Loving who and how all are, may sometimes feel discomforting
Can also be a good way to love You
You abide with those who care

3 Respect Him (You)
Your wishes are the air I breathe
All things speak for You upon this planet Earth
Joyful birds sing Your delight, while waving trees may show the way
They are Your sights, Your sounds and Your desires
Your wishes are the air I breathe

4 Keep Him (You) in mind
You are always on my mind
Dawn to daybreak, bright sunshine or rain
You paint my world in flower words, in children wise and holding skies
Your loving light shines out through all Your guides
You are always on my mind

5 Thank Him (You)
What makes You happy is good
You make all things perfect for the time
If I feel discomforted, first I need to let You know, then
Try to find the joy in what You give
What makes You happy is good

6 Be tolerant
Everything is dear to You
You care for each and every part of You
All receive Your guidance, Your support and all can know
The peace that comes from being part of You
Everything is dear to You

7 Work diligently
You make a gift of every day
Every second is a pot of gold
To make Earth how it is today, You moved the mountains, filled the seas
Still now You work to shape all that are here
You make a gift of every day

8 Treasure Intimacy
In love You treasure every little thing
Glances are like galaxies to roam
Smiles like warmest summertime, familiar voice here symphony
Touch can be an ocean of delight
In love You treasure every little thing

9 Speak truly
Your voices are in all I hear
Red the colour of the written word
Speaking can be gold or yellowed, songs clear like cerulean skies
Rainbow colours telling how You are
Your voices are in all I hear

10 Value every instant, every thing I am given, all I can, while it is mine
You are perfect like You are
All things true, fair, real, just and correct
Your worlds wherein my joy can live, Your encouraging presence
Your comforts where my heart can feel at home
You are perfect like You are

BALANCE WITH: (edit 15 Dec 2019) while words can be useful, God showed me this in Church today which may be worth bearing in mind:

God is at work in us, his purpose to perform,
building a kingdom of power not words,
where things impossible by faith shall be made possible;
let’s give the glory to him now.
