Raising families may be tough, as our times are spiritually rough,
The roads that many take today, can lead youth spiritually astray;
Though times continue to change, God above, remains the same,
So that on The Lordís Revelation, we can have a firm foundation.
The Lord has a design for us, for families following Christ Jesus,
Regarding the families we raise, for The Lordís honor and praise,
Building on the Truths of Christ, we guide children to Eternal Life,
As Godís plan moves the family, to a new life with God, eternally.
As we follow our Lord above, our families must be raised in love,
They must become our priority, as we sacrificially love the family,
Sacrificing even our own desire, for a priority much, much higher,
When we provide for the family, they obtain strength and security.
To those who we need to reach, it is necessary to biblically teach,
Godly character and Godís Ways, as we lead them in these days,
Leading them in this world of sin, we must teach Godly discipline,
With Godly boundaries in this life, being followers of Jesus Christ,
It is a must we model personally, real Christ likeness to our family,
So that through our life we reveal, a God to them, who is truly real,
While teaching with a caring heart, in hope that they will not depart,
When times fill them with dismay, so, on Godís path they will stay.
Fervently, we must always pray, for the family each and every day,
Knowing that we need help from, The Lord, when hard times come;
Finally, through all times it is a must, that in all things we fully trust,
The final outcome of our family, to the Lord, whoís over all eternity.
