Standing

Even though I was taught this lesson some time ago, sometimes I forget that there comes a time when you just have to be still. I've been trying to be in "still" mode for the past week or so...some days I've been successful, others...not so much. I know many of you have been wondering where I've been...and that means so much to me (Mwabi, you know I love you girl!). The fact that I was able to even post these lyrics and this short message is proof that I am going to make it through...not that I ever REALLY doubt that.

I've told myself that I have to ease up on posting lyrics, but these were "given" to me tonight...placed very heavily on my heart...so I had to share them with you...be encouraged!

STAND
by. Donnie Mcclurkin

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 filled with pain
Tell me what do you give when you've given your all
And it 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 (and be sure)
Be not entangled in that bondage again, you just stand
(Stand) and endure (and endure)
For 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 (stand) you just stand (stand) stand (stand)
Don't you dare give up (you just)

Through the storm (stand)
Stand through the rain (stand)
Through the hurt (stand)
Yeah through the pain (you just)

Don't you bow (stand) and don't you bend (stand)
Don't give up (stand) no don't give in (you just)
Hold on (stand) , just be strong (stand)
God will step in (stand), it won't be long no no no(you just)

After you've done all you can (after you've done all you can)
After you've done all you can (after you've done all you can)
After you've gone through the hurt (after you've done all you can)
After you've gone through the pain oh my (after you've done all you can)
After you've gone through the storm (after you've done all you can)
After you've gone through the rain (after you've done all you can)

Prayed and cried
After you've done all you can....you just ...
Stand.

Blessings!

My choir sings that song sometimes. But whatever you're going through, hold on to God's unchanging hand and everything will be alright.

Hey Darbs!

I love this song. Whatever your beliefs are, it's a song that encourages strength, and to always have faith that things will get better.

Thanks for reminding us...I needed that today ;)

girl...your strength comes thru your page everytime I visit. I know we have rough days...all of us but you gotta look deep within and know that you can get through anything.
I have to make you a CD.

Love ya Sis and know that I think of you all the time. I heard Unwritten the other day and was singing along thinking of you :)

"Still" is tough, I definitely understand. Do what you got to do to get it done. God's got a purpose and you're going to come out better on the other side of still mode.

God bless,
Dennis
