grrr

okay, so I wrote this great long post, went to find some lyrics & then poof! the post was gone. regardless, I was feeling a bit emotional & pms-y & generally inept with my ability to empthize with my friends [who are going through the ringer in a way that I cannot even fathom], when it came to me that really, my one big job is to pray. I believe in prayer. I believe in a God who answers prayer. so therefore, logic would tell me that my job this week must encompass a ton of prayer. THEN, I got thinking about this song that donnie mcclurkin sings and I don't know if it will help anyone, but when I think of it, it reminds me of who God is.

[What do you do] when you've done all you can
And it seems like it's never enough
And what do you say when your friends turn away
And you're all alone
Tell me what do you give when you've given your all
And it seems like you can't make it through
Well you just stand, when there's nothing left to do
You just stand, watch the Lord see you through
Yes after you've done all you can, you just stand
Tell me how do you handle the guilt of your past
Tell me how do you deal with the shame
And how can you smile while your heart has been broken
And filled with pain filled with pain
Tell me what do you give when you've given your all
And it seems like you can't make it through
Child you just stand when there's nothing left to do
You just stand watch the Lord see you through
Yes after you've done all you can, you just stand and be sure
Be not entangled in that bondage again, you just stand and endure
For God has a purpose yes God has a plan, tell me
When you've done all you can
And it seems like you can't make it through
Child you just...stand you just stand, stand

Don't you dare give up
Through the storm
Stand through the rain
Through the hurt
Yeah through the pain
Don't you bow and don't you bend
Don't give up no don't give in
Hold on, just be strong
God will step in, it won't be long no no no

After you've done all you can
After you've done all you can
After you've gone through the hurt
After you've gone through the pain oh my
After you've gone through the storm
After you've gone through the rain

Prayed and cried x 4
After you've done all you can....you just ...Stand.

I just posted a dang comment & it's gone! ARG! I was just wondering if WE are the "ringer" friends? If not, you have a lot of needy friends who depend on you. Which shows what an awesome friend you are. I appreciated our pep talk today...some how you knew I needed it & I am thankful for you & your encouraging words. I am trying to download that song & listened to a bit of it...think I've heard it before. Powerful. Brought tears to my eyes. Thanks Cori!
