It’s none of our business

As to what people think of us,

Because it’s only their opinion;

It’s what God thinks we ought to trust.

It’s none of our business

As to what people do,

Because when vanity becomes a lifestyle

It conceals all that is true.

When we confide in God our plans

He already knows indeed,

But we find out if it’s in His will

As we rest and are set free.

It’s none of our business

If people really care,

Because the heart is eventually exposed

And if it’s not – it’s very rare.

It’s none of our business

As to what people think,

Because we all have a conscience

And because God does know all things.

We shouldn’t play the role

Of manager of the universe,

Because it’s God who is in total control

And His light He does disperse.

We can’t change anyone

It’s only God who touches the soul,

But we can faithfully plant good seeds

And watch God water them behold!

We can only pray for loved ones

As we sincerely intercede,

And wait patiently on God’s timing

So their salvation we may see.

But it does become our business

When the arrows they do pierce,

Our children and our loved ones

And when the battle becomes fierce.

It becomes God’s business

When the apple of His eye,

Is persecuted or abused

Or slandered with the many lies.

When we understand healthy boundaries

There is no need to stress,

Knowing God is sovereign and it’s all for His glory

As only He knows what is best.

Jesus went about

To do the Father’s will indeed,

With a special mission and a vision

Where God’s business He did see.
