    Thank God for the message in midst of my mess
    Even then He was giving me His absolute best
    When the world at large examines my story
    God will be the only one able to get the glory
    For no one else can do all that He has done
    Or fight all my battles with all the victory won
    If He hadn't came in my life I'd still be nothing
    But with Him I am able to accomplish anything

    Thank God for the message in midst of my mess
    And even then He loved me no less than His best
    He had to reach really far down to come get me out
    Never once caring that I was consumed with doubt
    I couldn't believe anybody would love me in spite of me
    But He saw in me the perfection of what I'd come to be
    "Never would of made it" is more than just a mere song
    It is my testimany of how I've being able to stand so long

    Thank God for the message in midst of my mess
    I thank Him for loving me enough to give me His best
    I'm grateful He didn't giving up on me like the rest
    No matter how much I wanted to settle for less
    He kept on calling me to rise above my situation
    And to come out and accept His gift of salvation
    Messanger, after messanger came to preach to me
    Although I was stubborn, one day one did reach me

    And I thank God for the message in midst of my mess
    Taking me from a unfinished mess to a work in progress
    Who knew that a simple message could be so significant
    That a message could make me retire the very word can't
    For with God all things have become achievable and possible
    When before every day seem so unbearable and impossible
    And since the message has blessed me so I gladly bear witness
    So hopefully this message finds you in the midst of your mess​

    And the message has found me there. God doesn't misjudge, misunderstand, doesn't miss who each of us truly are. And thank goodness for that. Deeply feeling your expression poetess.

    such a beautiful message you've brought to the rest!

    Beautiful.
