When I’m struggling to concentrate
Can’t see anything new
Lord, help me to remember everything You do.
When I’m trying to move forward
But it seems I’m standing still
Lord, help me to remember that I can trust Your sovereign will.
When I don’t understand
Lord, help me to take Your hand
I don’t want to feel far
I want that closeness once again.
When I’ve grown tired and weary
And I’m waiting for that change
Lord, help me to remember there’s still power in Your name.
When I fear I’m getting nowhere
And I believe I’ll fail once more
Lord, help me to remember that You’ll help me to that shore.
When I’m trying way too hard
And life feels like one big test
Remind me, Lord, You Love me
And that in You I’ll find my rest.

The Lord Reveals…
“At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.”
“All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal Him.“”Matthew 11:25-27
He Defends and Supplies…
“It becomes children to be grateful. When we come to God as a Father, we must remember that He is Lord of heaven and earth, which obliges us to come to Him with reverence as to the sovereign Lord of all; yet with confidence, as one able to defend us from evil, and to supply us with all good.”Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary
He Gives Us Rest…
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”Matthew 11:28-30
