Lord, give me the strength to do Your will
and silence my mind to make it still,
for my thoughts have set my feelings alight
and they force me to focus on things that aren’t right.

My conflict and turmoil have left me in despair
and I get to the point where I think You’re unfair,
but then I check my thoughts against what I know
and find my feelings are lying, for You are not so.

Father, I choose to believe in all that You’ve said,
despite the rhetoric raging inside my head;
I’ll stay focused upon You who knows best
and train my mind to forget the lies of the rest.
