    when her spirit was down
    ...self-esteem drooping low
    when her mind keeps telling her
    "gurl, you've gotta let go"
    when it appeared her world
    had fallen away
    when opportunity came knocking
    she had nothing to say
    when her family turnt their backs
    talked about her like a dog
    when she lost her ride
    her crib
    and her job
    when her bank ran out
    and her homies, too
    she fell to her knees
    she didn't know what else to do.

    ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE
    THROUGH PRAYER.

    PRAYER

    ALL SHE COULD DO WAS BELIEVE IN HIM
    FORTH HE WILL SEE HER THROUGH
    FAITH & PRAYER

    peeps...

    THANKS FOR THE READ.

    we all fall on hard times. it's important to have someone to stand by you. when you're alone, the burden seems so much greater. we all need to remember that we can always go to HIM...HE will always be there.

    One.
