Before You Complain

Put your glasses on before you complain,
You want to see clearly what’s happening;
No, not those sunglasses. . . the Son Glasses,
You need the wisdom that Jesus will bring.

Maybe you’re too tired to concentrate,
Maybe you’ve got some burden on your heart;
Best you talk to the LORD honestly now,
That’s how a new miracle can start.

What’s now is related to something past,
And the future involves what’s going on now;
Stop fussing about your frustrations,
Jesus will open your eyes and show you how.

You do want to size up the challenge,
See what the enemy is trying to do;
But you’ll only move forward with the strength
That the LORD Jesus can provide for you.

You are not alone!  Say that over again.
Then say, “Yes,  I can — I know I can.”
There’s a wonderful outcome and you’ll find it
When you trust, obey and take a firm stand.
