    Today I almost walked out on God
    Life was beginning to get a lil too hard
    So caught up in my hurt and pain
    Felt like in life I had nothing to gain

    No where to turn
    So what could I do
    Friends were too busy
    So they turn their backs on you

    All alone
    Just my pain and me
    Wondering where was "MY" God
    who promise to set me free

    My heart ....hurts

    My head....Clouded

    Nobody cares

    Will I make it?....I doubt it

    I lived most of my life
    Trying to live and please God
    While sinners seem happy
    and here I have a broken heart

    What kind of God is this
    Who allows you to suffer
    Tired of hearing that crap
    God's trying to make you tougher

    I was tired of being a fool
    Tire of seeing the good guys suffer
    If God has "ALL" power
    Why is my life getting rougher

    So I said I'll fix God
    Said I wasn't going to His Holy Place
    But instead got ready for church
    To go tell God to His face

    Yeah, I had gotten bold
    but pain will take you to that level
    But when I heard the songs of Praise
    My heart quickly released that devil

    It seemed like every song that was sung
    and every Praise that was said
    I knew I allowed the devil to rise from my feet
    and go straight to my head

    Even the Preacher had a word
    Right then I felt like a turd
    I let the devil rob me again
    The whole thing, it was so absurd

    So I took ALL my burdens
    to the alter I left them there
    Because I know that "MY" God cares
    And I know "MY" God is true

    So in life be encouraged
    Lean to God when you're discouraged
    Know that God is real and true
    All in All He Will See You Through!

    Goodness knows I have been there, so down that I couldn't see my way up from down. But your last stanza brings it all back home...God certainly will see you through. This was very inspirational.
