My New Song

You know the words, "He hath put a new song in my heart, even praise unto our God"? I do. A while ago, I was getting discouraged and down. Finally, I prayed and asked the Lord to give me a new song to write that would lift my spirits, as well as others. On the 9th, this is the song He gave me, called, He's Never Given Up

He's Never Given Up
(Jan. 9, 2009)

Why do we give up on God so fast?
Even though we know these trials won't last,
Though friends may prove untrue, in God I will trust,
Why do we give up on God, He's never given up on us.

Verse 1
Mary and Martha, they were standing by their dear brother's grave,
Lazarus had been sick, but now it was too late,
The crowd cried, "He's coming!" Martha ran to him and cried,
"Lord, if you would have been here, Lazarus would not have died."


Verse 2
Sometimes in this life, we have a burden that we all must bear,
We look around and wonder, "Does anybody care?"
We lift our hands up to God and question, "Why?"
But you don't have to give up, why don't you give faith a try?


Repeat: Why do we give up on God, He's never given up on us,
He'll never give up on us.

New Year, New Grace

Well, it's a new year and with this new year comes new trials, new blessings, and new opportunities. I have experienced all of the above in the past couple of weeks.

The new trials that seem to be facing us this month is, of course financial, also, my brother has had to withdraw from college due to the lack of funding. He will be staying in North Carolina and helping with a friend's church down there. My other brother has been having quite the time also, please keep him in prayer. I can't go into details, but he need's God's hand on his life.

The new blessings and opportunities, I am now working at our local hospital in Medical Records. I was able to return to work there since they had requested me for this past summer, but since I was working at the station, I couldn't. Anyway, they have hired me in a temporary casual position, it was only supposed to be until the end of this month, but I am now going to be working there until I start school and then, on the days I don't have school or clinicals, I will still be able to work there, if they have work for me. The Lord IS good! As for the whole "school thing", Lord willing, I will be able to start a votech school around the middle of March for my CNA certification. I won't have to pay a thing, a local nursing home is funding that, and then, hopefully, I will be able to find a job back at the hospital.
