"Lord, Remind Me"
When the days are long
And patience is short,
Remind me, you are a parent
And I’m not always an obedient child.
When I’m rejected for following you
And misunderstood for the things I do,
Remind me, you weren’t always accepted
And you still held on to your beliefs.
When I’m let down by others
And feel distant from my family
Remind me, I am your child
And your love is unconditional.
When I’m feeling down
And tempted to give up,
Remind me of the trials you faced
And the perseverance you possessed.
When I face struggles
And storms begin to rage,
Remind me of the pain you felt
And suffering you endured.
When I’m feeling weak
And wonder how I can go on,
Remind me you are in control
And your joy will be my strength.
When times are good
And especially when things are bad,
Remind me there is a reason for it all
And Your plan is perfect.
