Lord help us react in a godly way

To the situations that happen each day

Give us wisdom and soften our heart

Prayer and worship is the best way to start

Help us to think on excellent things

Not the lies that the enemy brings

Help us to quiet the feelings that grow

When we let the negative emotions show

With compassion and love as guidelines to live

Through Your Holy Spirit, teach us to give

We as God’s children have a job to do

To let Your love and light shine through

As different opportunities come

Help us always to glorify Your Son

By Denise Varga, author of the inspirational book, Your Words, not Mine, not Mine.

Scripture References

Who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God (2 Corinthians 1:4 – NKJV).”

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure,whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy – meditate on these things (Philippians 4:8 – NKJV).”
