Today was a tough day….

You can always tell I’m going through something when I start popping out with these blogs.  Let me say that not all of my bad days are because of Chance. Don’t get it twisted, I think about her everyday but I do have other things in my life that have to be dealt with.  Situations that arise. A son that has to be taken care of. A destiny I have to fulfill. By the way, I’m still trying to figure my “destiny” out. But I digress….

Anyway, today started out as a great day. I was up on time.  Brandon was dropped off at school on time.  I made it to work on time.  I had my worship music playing.  I just knew that I was going to have a great day.  But that ole Satan had other plans for me. I mean. He turned my entire day around and I’ve been in a funk every since. 

Well most of you that follow me know that I find songs to fit my situations. It’s a talent. Lol Today the song “Stand” by Donnie McClurkin came to mind. And I’ve been just sitting here really listening to the words and I feel my atmosphere shifting. I have problems with feeling guilty. Being heart broken. Feeling rejected. Not feeling good enough. Feeling judged. But this song!! My God!!!  Has changed my night. You know I’m posting the lyrics. Lol

What do you do when you’ve done all you can
And it seems like it’s never enough?
And what do you say
When your friends turn away
And you’re all alone?

Tell me, what do you give? When you’ve given your ALL…
And it seems like you can’t make it through?
Well, you just stand when there’s nothing left to do
You just stand, watch the Lord see you through
Yes, after you’ve done all you can,
You just STAND…

Tell me, how do you handle the guilt of your past?
Tell me, how do you deal with the shame?
And how can you smile while your heart has been broken
And filled with pain?

Tell me what do you give when you’ve given your all?
Seems like you can’t make it through.
Child, you just stand when there’s nothing left to do
You just stand, watch the Lord see you through
Yes, after you’ve done all you can,
You just stand

Stand and be sure
Be not entangled in that bondage again!!
You just stand and endure…
God has a purpose..
Yes, God has a plan!

Tell me what do you do when you’ve done all you can
And it seems like you can’t make it through?
Child, you just stand, you just stand, STAND!

Don’t you dare give up through the storm… STAND
Stand through the rain… STAND
Through the hurt… STAND
Yeah, through the pain… STAND
Don’t you bow, and don’t you bend
Don’t give up, no, don’t give in
Hold on,
Just be still
God will step in
And it won’t be long… STAND
**this is my part**

After you’ve done all you can, after you’ve done all you can
After you’ve gone through the hurt,
After you’ve gone through the pain
After you’ve gone through the storm,
After you’ve gone through the rain
Prayed and cried,
Prayed and cried
Prayed and cried
Prayed and cried, oh my
**this is my part too**
(That’s exactly what I did. I prayed and cried. Cried and prayed.)

After you’ve done all you can you just STAND!!!!

So what the song is saying is to stand through any situation. God definitely has a plan.  That court case. That break up. That foreclosure. Kids acting up. Friends not being supportive. Job seems sketchy. STAND up through it. Everything will be ok. That’s a promise from God. He loves US and everything will be fine!!

Be blessed. Goodnight

Oh,  here’s the song…
