Hold on to your confidence when called to your mission

Sometimes you may feel like you're stuck on the benches of life Not knowing if you'll ever get in the game causing you anquish and strife Dismissed and unused never getting a chance to play Just praying for an opportunity to hopefully shine one day Yet the longer you sit idle your confidence dwindles to the ground Feelings of despair that life has somehow let you down You need to hold on to your confidence by trusting in the Lord God Knowing your ability, knowing your capabilities with self assurance in your heart Just don't be arrogant which an exaggeration of what you think you know Remember God is in control and its He who runs the show Just wait to use the gifts that God has given to you Just wait for your season it will be coming true Understand that your mission is godly ordained Understand that your calling is godly arranged You might be overlooked and passed over for the task Just hold on to your confidence your time will come at last My son loved basketball and he always had a dream That he would make it onto his junior high school team And lo and behold his dream came to be He became a member of the varsity Yet he sat on the bench game after game And I could see his confidence start to wain And when the coach finally put him in My son overcompensated trying to win Mistake after mistake my child endured His confidence in his ability had fallen through the floor And following that game we prayed so that my son could see That if you trust in the talents God's. given you there will be victory And the next time my son played for his team He scored 31 points thus fulfilling his dream Jesus sees you and He knows your potential Jesus sees you and to Him you are essential Yes God shows up at the benches in life And He will put you in the game when the time is right So hold on to your confidence and keep pushing ahead You will be called to your mission and by the Holy Spirit be lead
