Norma Johnson – “God’s Way”

August 29th, 2019 by Kali Lewis

Raise your hand if you remember Frank Sinatra. When he was ending his singing career he sang a song, “I Did It My Way” , this to him was how he lived his life. It occurred to me that the hurt and bad things could have been avoided if instead he had tried to live by God’s teaching. So this version of Frank’s song is for the many people who have tried to make this world a better place b y trying to live their lives God’s way. ]

So now the end draws near.. And so I face that final curtain… My friends I’ll say it  clear… I’ll state my case of which I’m certain… I’ve lived a lift that’s full… before I found myself in this day… But more, much more than that … I tried to do it God’s way.

Regrets?? I’ve had a few … When I tried to get attention … when wrong I really knew… that it was due to my pretension… God planned my charted course… each wandering step… along this roadway… but more… much more than that I tried to make it God’s way.

Yes, there were times when I was scared … I was unsure … and unprepared … but thru it all … I always knew … God walked with me … and helped me thru … You’ll face it all … and you’ll stand tall … just try to make it God’s way ….

I’ve loved … I’ve laughed and cried … I’ve made mistakes … in my way of living … but now … as fears subside … I’m thankful God is so forgiving …

To think he does all that … and shows the way … to make it His day.

Oh … no… it was not me … He showed me His way …

For you and I … what have we got??? An empty life … if we have not …

A faith in God we truly feel … and were secure that when we kneel that God will know … that we tried so … to live life … His way.

Norma Johnson re-wrote the words to Frank Sinatra’s, “My Way” and performed her version in front of the congregation with Ginger Stark accompanying her on the piano.
