When irritations, groans arise,
you hear your heart complain –
rebuff its voice with thinking wise
to trust and hope again.
Remind your soul of all you have
received from God through life.
Remember all the help he gave
in struggles and in grief.
So, give yourself a ‘talking-to’!
Above all else, delight
in all that Jesus came to do
to save you from sin’s plight.
cf Psalm 42:5
