It helps to look back and remember: to gain that fuller perspective,
What went well and how you did it, Have any complications? and how did it go?
It helps to look around and consider: What’s going on in your part of the world?
What circumstances surround you? What’s still a problem, and what’s new?
It helps to look ahead and ponder: What might happen . . . Who might . . .
And what might they do . . . How will my planning and preparation help?
And, it helps to remember what you did well, Let’s give a cheer!
How did your attitude and actions help? So you can make improvements again.
It helps to have someone on your side who gives you help when you need it;
More than that, this Friend cheers you on And it does help to remember Who He is!
