    The bottom has fell out the barrel
    And the well is all the way dry
    And nothing seems to go your way
    No matter what you try to do
    Well my dear beloved have you considered
    Maybe God is trying to tell you something
    And this His way of getting your attention
    For on the mountaintop we tend to forget
    Forget that we need Him in our life
    It's in the valley low that we cry loud
    We remember to pray without cease
    For when your need is greatest
    You faith raises to the occassion
    But why wait to the end of the rope
    To acknowlege there is an Almighty God
    Why not give him props on daily basis
    For He is deserving of that and more

    HE has a way...

    ...of reminding us of who we are. often, HE puts us through things...to prepare us for what HE wants us to be. during that preparation, HE allows us to struggle, both in hope and faith, to get us back to HIM. when we are ready, and fully prepared, HE bestowes HIS blessings upon us. YES, my GOD is, indeed, a MIGHTY GOD...and we should acknowledge HIM, daily. THANKING HIM for our waking...all the love we're making...our ability to endure the forsaking of those things that we shouldn't be doing, ANYWAY.

    NICE.
