    Hitting the floor
    Screaming help me Jesus
    My mind is troubled and weak
    The darkness covers my fears
    For I need you, need you near
    Tears pouring pain
    I know I have to go through the storm on my way
    But my soul can’t take any more
    Lead me to the light
    Holding on for a brighter day

    Down on my last
    Can’t seem to bare the pain
    Lost in the storm
    No, knock at the door
    Holding on to a brighter day
    Looking for the sun to shine
    Today must not be my day
    The wind is cold
    Darkness all around
    But I know the clouds will fade
    See the pain hurts today
    Like no other day
    But I keep moving
    For I know…….

    What he did on Calvary
    Makes me keep on keeping
    Praising him the only way I know how
    He brings the dark to light
    Holding on for a brighter day
    Take my hand…

    When I can’t, seem to smile
    His joy takes hold
    Nothing can compare to the love he brings
    For I know life will never be the same
    Holding on for a brighter day

    Wiping tears from my eyes
    Picking up…for I see the light shine
    Holding on for a brighter day

    Hitting the floor
    Screaming help me Jesus
    My mind is troubled and weak
    The darkness covers my fears
    For I need you, need you near
    Tears pouring pain
    I know I have to go through the storm on my way
    But my soul can’t take any more
    Lead me to the light
    Holding on for a brighter day



    (For His love is all I need)
    He is greatly to be PRAISED
    For he gave me my gift and I shall share

    Which gift were you speaking of?
    Your inner gift that comes out so eloquently or your gift of word use?
    Doesn't matter both gifts are beautiful thanks for sharing your gifts.

    Could be the gift of life. For we never thank him enough for another day.

    Great poem MzBlk

    Just when your at the waters edge, he sustains us. Being a witness of his grace, I have experienced the last hour more than once. During all of my worry and dispair. I never let go of my faith anytime during the struggle. He came thru. Blazing so to speak, in GODs time he came thru.

    He sustained my mother many times when I was growing up, she to me has faith. From her I got mine and it will never waver.

    Thru all of her struggles she never lost sight of his grace. People laughing, talking and pointing at your lack of. She sayw those same folks go down into what they saw as someone elses pain. Some even came and apologized
    ( extended family members ) my mother accepted the apology and told them she never took it to heart and personal. All is forgiven because God makes a way! As one comes up you will pass those going down.

    On your way down you will meet those same people, and they may be coming up.
