We Can Please God By Brenda Drake

Families have a special love and bond with each other; but problems arise and feelings get hurt.  It seems that you cannot at times do anything to please some people.  God understands our dilemma but He still tells us to turn the other cheek! 

We Can Please God

When you try to please everyone you will find,
It is rarely possible and most of the time,
You become irritable deep within,
And are not happy with yourself or with them.
You must say right and continue on the path of good,
For God asks always to do as you should.
You are not to treat others as they treat you,
For even the heathen this work can do.
Your hurting heart must die to the pain of self.
This is in service to your Lord; He promises to help.
The Word says to pray for those that despitefully use you;
You indeed need the Holy Spirit’s help to this do.
To love your enemy: to turn the other cheek;
To remain kind, gentle, and to uplifting words speak.
You cannot please everyone all of the time,
But you can please God when with the Word you align.
Your love and prayers in another’s behalf will much good do.
And one day they may even testify and give thanks to you.

Matthew 5:44
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
