One More Time

Do you ever feel like giving up?

Do you ever feel like you can't possibly do this one more time?
     Get up in the middle of the night one more time.
     Clean up that mess one more time.
     Face that frustrating person one more time.
     Forgive one more time.
     Prepare one more time.
     Support one more time.
     Listen one more time.

So maybe, if you're like me,
     You cry one more time,
     Pray one more time,
     Read that Bible one more time,
     And try. One. More. Time.

Because you believe that God
     Continues to give all of the time,
     And gave it ALL one time . . .
              For all time.

Yep - and then my WeeMan or my kiddos at work remind me why I do it and I know that the timing of that is all part of God's love.

Yep, that's so where I've been! We can do this! The Lord gives us the strength when we are a good workout, when all is said and done, we'll be so glad we hung in there!

yes! It's a matter of one foot in front of the other, believing it's all worth it, and knowing that love will get you through. All of it matters which is why you do it one more time.

You bet! There are times when I absolutely feel this way and pray for the strength to get through it.

What helps me a lot is to know there are people in the world who would consider themselves beyond rich if they were in my position. I have food to provide my children, I have a roof over our heads, and we have our health. Everything else pales in comparison.
