Another Reason

Another reason to complain
Another chance to doubt
It still escapes my feeble brain
God always works things out

My memory is so very odd
It seems only to retain
Disappointments I have with God
I keep reasons to complain

No matter how He blesses me
In sweet affirming ways
I fail to show Him thankfulness
I fail to give Him praise

Instead when I awaken
I resubmit my list
My doubts remain unshaken
I tell God what He missed

I will only know the good and best
When I start to realize
Christ alone is peace and rest
The soul’s reward and prize

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
Isaiah 26:3 KJV
