The kids have upped and gone to school
It makes you feel so obsolete
You think that you should find a job
To make your life complete
The extra money sure would help
With all your debts and needs
Where's The Lord in all of this
What does He think indeed.

You've only ever been a parent
Now you need to show
That you can prove your usefullness
You're fidgeting to go
Stop and think of what you'll miss
The roles you have at church
Surely He will bless your acts
Not leave you in the lurch.

So pray and seek His way for you
The peace that He can bring
Will far outweigh your poor selfworth
In service for your King
You will gain a greater treasure
Kingdom wealth is more
Than all the world can throw at you
His way for you is sure.
