What are some things that irritate:
Someone who always shows up late,
A driver who goes fast, then slow,
The right answer they always know.
Being told to push one or push two,
Automated reply tells you.
A salesclerk who seems quite upset,
Not finished visiting yet.
Discontinued a product is.
An appliance goes on the fritz.
Children who often disobey.
Those who insist on their own way.
The computer does not obey.
What you want it will not display?
Forever this list could go on.
Can there be any good withdrawn?
Does God get irritated too,
With some of the things that we do?
Our sin makes Him angry, it’s true.
Our repentance may be past due.
When we ask Him He will forgive.
We can begin to truly live.
From irritation we’ll not be free.
But God’s presence is a guarantee.
An example the oyster is.
A grain of sand he takes as is.
Even though it is difficult
A lovely pearl is the result.
Toward irritants our attitude
Should be one of gratitude.
God has promised never to leave.
We this promise should now believe.
