    Lord knows I've sinned
    Oh Lord where should I begin
    Seems like when I rise I fall again
    Until.....

    Well I went to church after about a year the other day
    It wasn't a Sunday so no one but the pastor was there that day
    I walked into the church doors and he turned my way
    Squinted his eyes like he noticed me today
    I walked up to him with nervousness in my eyes and said hey

    I walked closer told him, "I went here when I was younger in my past"
    Told him "I was once in the choir, I was the alto next to the bass"
    I put on a fake smile then I broke down, told him about my past
    He held me and told me, "God will deliver you sweetie through his grace"
    I told him, "Where was God when my life was a waste?
    He wasn't there when I lived my life in haste."
    He smiled, said, "Now you don't believe that if you did you wouldn't be here in that case"
    He was right, but god had some explaining to do before I ever fast

    I told him, "Listen preacher man if God was there for me why didn't he shelter me?
    Why didn't he give me signs if he knows my future before me?"
    The pastor got up and he looked down on me,
    "God is always near
    He shields you from stuff you fear
    And you better believe he was there
    Maybe you didn't hear
    Everything you go through is a sign, God never put more on you than you can bear."
    I was fearful at that moment, maybe I said something wrong, maybe I shouldn't be here
    That's what I thought when I started to pick up my gear

    When I was getting up the pastor touched me
    Put his hand on my shoulder and I felt a feeling never felt by me
    It was like the four seasons wrapped all together and somebody was talking to me
    I looked at him strangely
    I was scared as I don't know what, I wondered was God talking to me
    Trying to tell me to stay
    I sat back down and I decided to stay

    "Sweetie prayer changes
    And even through hard times it changes
    Don't give up on God for HE changes
    And never question his word for you still manage"
    The pastor said to me.

    I looked up at him. "But God said he would always be there
    Then why when I pray he acts as if he doesn't care
    Like I'm talking to myself, I looked for him, was he there?"

    "Yes child, he was there
    He is a righteous God, he's always there
    Just believe and he wil always be there
    God knows your troubles and he care."
    He said. "I'm a witness god is ALWAYS there."

    PRAYER CHANGES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I cried that day in his arms
    Talk him my past and where I came from
    Told him I would be there on Sunday and that the battle is not won
    I've been yet holding on
    And I will continue to be strong
    Father God forgive me
    And I THINK he forgave me
    If not, I tried and I will continue to try, believe me

    We are so blessed to have a forgiving God, a God who watches over us even when we don't feel that he is. Many can testify to this, what a deeply felt scribe lil sis.

    This was somethin' kind of beautiful and an inspiration. Girl you told the story well and yes prayer does change things as young as I am I can be a witness to that. This was a nice drop I like it.
