    i've experienced laughter and i've survived plenty pains
    i've learned to persisted through struggles and gained strength
    from the strain

    i've had friends mistreat me, my loved one has died
    everyone saw when i was happy, but no one knew when I cried

    some dreams have come true, and i've lived through some
    nightmares
    i press on with great confindence, though deep down i'm scared

    I think that i'm saved, but i get confused when i sin
    it's very discouraging having to start all over again

    but through all the things that life throws at me
    i often ask myself why He thinks I'm so worthy

    how could a God that expects only the best
    think enough of me to bless me with tests

    test that show how far along i've come
    tests that show there is more work to be done

    trials that break down every pillar of pride
    humbly i accept that He'll never leave my side

    for every friend that leaves when the going gets rough
    i find solice in knowing my God is enough

    for every tear that i've cried, i've made 10 people smile
    that gives me comfort and makes it all worth the while

    when i'm at my weakest and i can't do anything else
    my Heavenly father is waiting to be petitioned for help

    i've learned through it all, that trials can't break me down
    they are just tests i must pass if I want to earn my crown

    try not to worry when stress takes all the precedence
    you have the awesome assingnment of being God's divine
    instrument

    you must illustrate to others and reafirm to yourself
    that God will never leave you, He's and everpresent help

    keep this in mind next time you say "Why me"
    be glad that God chose you to show off his glory.

    I have been encouraged by your words!

    I am humbled by this simplistic yet heartfelt rendering of
    what an intercessory prayer sounds like. And I am encouraged.
    For you have a gift that is most profound.
    Blessed is the man who know's himself, but even more so is he who knows God.
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!
