    frozen in a space of time
    i feel trapped
    cornered
    no way out
    walls closing in
    i call out
    hello???
    God are You there???
    HELLO!!
    why did You put me here
    in this particular place
    i don't like it here
    somethin don't seem right
    and You told me that i was to
    be a teacher to the children
    You said You wanted me to write
    to the masses...
    You...
    You...
    You...
    and then i remember
    He knows
    and He knows everything
    and He sees what i can't
    and if i just wait and be still...
    i'm sorry Lord
    just help me...
    and then i breathe deeply
    cuz i'd been holding my breath
    breathing too quickly
    stressing
    but when i let go
    i remember He's in control
    and i don't have to worry.

    Are U talking about what I think you are talking about
    Perhaps the Lord will answear your prayers as he answeared mine (LOL)
    No realy: I know you are destined for greatness just continue following his plan and one day it will all be clear.
    But most of all remember that He has not given us a spirit of fear
    (NO FEAR)

    Seven....

    Yes Indeed!! :)

    this reminds me of my favorite Yolanda Adams
    song... "The Battle is The Lords"...

    we breathe much easier when we realize who
    is in control & relinquish the battle to Him...

    AlwaysPeace.
