    Oh Lord how I sometimes
    Feel like...
    I want to die
    Prayin...thinkin you don't hear my cry
    On bended knee I
    Humbly ask thee
    Save me from the wrath of
    friends and family
    who attempt at keeping me from
    being the virtuous woman
    God wants me to be.
    Serving HIM with gladness
    re-entering HIS courts with Praise
    Blessed by the sermon
    worshipping HIM with arms raised

    singing…

    I love you lord...
    and I lift my voice...to wor-ship you
    oh my soul re-joice
    take JOY my king...
    in what you hear...
    Let it be a sweet, sweet sound
    in your ear.

    as I cry I have no shame (Romans 5:1)
    knowing praise with tears won't
    be in vain
    loosed me of the
    pain the...strain
    applying God's principles to my life
    the most important being the
    Power of Agreement.
    God is Accessable to me
    I am Assured that what ever I ask in
    HIS name he'll give it
    I will not allow troubles to Agitate me
    because they are not mines to handle
    (let go and let GOD)
    All of this because I know HE is Able...
    Able to set me FREE in the midst of Adversity,
    HE provides for me exceedingly and abundantly
    Even if the world and it's people don't agree

    SELAH

    faith...

    "...the assured expection of things hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities though not beheld." (Heb. 11:1)

    exercise your faith, young one. although the world isn't what we would want it to be, Jesus showed that you could be in the world without being a part of the world. that way, all is good within your world.:)

    have a blessed day.
