Believing for the Best in You
When you’re struggling, when you need a friend, when you are at an impasse and don’t know what to do;
When we can’t seem to come to an agreement, when I don’t understand your point of view, and you can’t see mine;
I don’t stop caring. I’m believing in something. I’m believing for the best in you.
When you make mistakes, when you behave inappropriately or do the wrong thing, even when I discipline you, even when you think I’m disappointed in you;
Believe me, I’m seeing something. I’m seeing growth. I’m believing for the best in you.
When you feel alone, when you feel run down, when you’re hesitant to change, yet ready to move forward; I’ll be your cheerleader. I’ll be your backup. I’m believing for the best in you.
When we’re far apart, When we feel like we can’t relate, I have faith in our relationships; I’ll never doubt us. I’m believing for the best in you.
When we’re disconnected, when we have failures to communicate or forgive or see eye-to-eye, it’s okay, we’ll make it through; I’ll never stop having hope for reconciliation. If you get weary, I’ll keep the faith for you. I’m believing for the best in you.
When your life seems to be falling apart around you; When you feel like you have let me down; When I try to help but I’m not sure my efforts do any good; I won’t stop trying. I’m believing for the best in you.
When you need a helping hand; when a handout is not what you need, but a hand up, I won’t look down on you. I won’t judge you for your past. I won’t make assumptions about your situation. I’m believing for the best in you.
When I start dwelling over failures, when I judge myself by my past mistakes, I will stop. I will forgive. I will do better. I will look at you the way God does. He’s believing for the best in you.
Double Talk Quote: two days before summer camp, Me to Mica: “So…Are you excited?” Mica (enthusiastically): “Um-hum!” (pause) “About what?” (I guess she’s just excited in general!)
Bible Verse: “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
Word that has Lost its meaning: disbelief
Relatable Lyrics: Believing For The Best In You by Stormie Omartian
“After all I’ve said to try and change your mind,
Are you still gonna doubt my words?
You can tell me your failures and point out your flaws – I don’t hear you…
…I’m believing for the best in you.”
