    Lord, give me strength when
    all else fails
    build me up, with a strong foundation
    and a staying power, hard as nails
    Yes, I'm going to fall
    But please don't let me drop
    so far, that I won't be able to rise
    again, from an abyss that just won't stop
    When things go horribly wrong
    what does it mean?
    And when will it all turn back around?
    It's on your heavenly body that I lean,
    hard, putting my faith in you
    trying to accomplish what you seemingly
    want me to do
    But what steps does one take
    when so many turns present a fight
    a left turns into a dead end
    and these feet never seem to turn right.
    So, tell me, in what direction do I proceed?
    What in God's name do I do now?
    What will the next chapter in life bring?
    Does it really matter any how?
    So many questions to the many
    trials and tribulations that a life can bring
    I need an answer very soon...
    a hint, a sign, some sort of inkling
    that everything, somehow, will eventually be ok.....

    Thank you gempis, although I'm pretty sure your morning prayer has quite a flow to it as well. Just trying to figure things out, hopefully I will.

    a wonderful prayer watz...
    interestingly i heard this wonderful talk at the tabernacle today/yesterday, it after 12...it was:
    "don't look back..like lots wife...keep your eye on the daystar"
    I am paraphrasing but when you said "in which direction do i proceed"...that's what came to mind...and so i share it with you..

    Thanks for sharing that with me deepy. Doesn't help me at this point to look back. Though looking forward right now is a bit scary...who am I fooling...very scary right now. Your support means a lot.

    Watz,
    Whenever you get to the end of the rope...tie a knot in it...and hold on, cause "help" ...is on the way. And remember always that...God don't make "2" left shoes.
    this was such a wonderful piece, and of course I drove on this street before, thanks for sharing such an inspiring piece that layed on my soul...and marinated.

    "Whenever you get to the end of the rope...tie a knot in it...and hold on, cause "help" ...is on the way." I really like that saying queentswana. And thank you for saying that this piece was inspirational, I was just writing what was on my mind.
