Here I Am

"God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns"
Psalm 46 :5

I was listening to this song by T.I. called No Matter What, and the chorus basically says remember that I didn't break, I'm still standing, and no matter what-here I am. That is how I have been feeling lately... bruised but not broken, and still I rise. Then, I was looking through all the blogs I have listed under 'Sites for Sore Eyes' and Lauren had this bible verse at the top of her newest post. I felt like God brought her to church and told her to blog about the experience because He knew she wasn't the only one who needed to hear it. I have spent this week reminding myself and a close friend that God is in control. I have made a point to shake my worries because 'worry only occupies where faith should be', and the one in control will make sense of all things I find confusing. This quote was a reminder of that. I would post the T.I. song which inspired this entire post and a song by Yolanda Adams called 'The Battle is not Yours', but I'm having a problem with the url code and the baby mama's I praised 2 posts before this one are rushing me. However, I will post some of the lyrics to T.I.'s song that really got in my head: like im fine
brag with such passion and shine without trying
believe me pain's a small thing to a giant...
spoke my mind and didn't studder one time
Ali say even the greatest gotta suffer some time...
God'll take you through hell just to get you to heaven
so even though it's heavy, the load I will carry...
life can change ya directions
even when you aint planned it
all you can do is handle it
the worst thing you could do is panic
use it to your advantage, avoid insanity
manage to conquer every obstacle
make impossible possible
even when winnings illogical
losings still far from optional...
but when life throw punches, block ya counter like a boxer do

I Shall Not be Moved,

  1. I read this beforehand, but it's one I read continuously because it's very uplifting. Strength seems to be as fluctuating as the wind in my life. It's just like the air actually. Even if it's not moving, I know it's there. Sometimes my strength is blatant, and sometimes it's dormant. Sometimes I have things under control, and sometimes I'm powerless. The unfortunate thing about being human is having to shift back and forth between both conditions.

    I can say I'm currently in a state where I've had things under control, but I can feel my grip loosening. So only tomorrow will tell me if I will lose control or will I tighten up.

    But with a quote like "even when winnings illogical, losing's still far from optional," I think the decision is made me for me.

    Thanks for this.
