Even at my darkest hour
Even when my mind is spent
Even when I’m among wild friends and we are having an outrageous time
Even when a chick is serving as a trifling friend, trying to tell me who I am
Even when subconscious jealousy is surrounding me
Even when I can feel the hate on my neck, choking me
Even when prayers and wishes are forced against me
Even when I start to feel like crap
Even when I’m feeling overwhelmed
Even when I want to give up
Even when my voice starts to give out
Wait a minute
Even when I’m scared for my life
Even when I’m being attacked
Even when I’m being told I’m wrong when I know I’m right
Even when I’m ready to Fight
Why does that keep coming across my mind
I say, I heard a word
Saying girl you will be find
I say, I had a dream
That said “Don’t Look Back”
Even when I’m being bashed
Even when I’m being plotted against
Even when deceitful smiles stand among me
That’s what keeps coming to mind
My goodness, if nothing else
I think to myself,
“Yea thou I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I should fear no evil”
Hmmm, even when my mind can’t begin or continue the rest of that verse
I always seem to get that much out of it
Even when I’m being prejudged
Even when I’m being verbally devalued
Even when I’m being taken advantage of
Lord! You must be trying to tell me something!
I mean really
I guess I should really look into what your trying to tell me
Wow I can already tell this is going to be deep
“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
(King James Version)
I can see you Lord
You really are my shepherd
I see you Lord
I don’t want for anything
I’m following you Lord
I made it to the college campus and you showed were to plant my feet
I feel you lord
You erased my sins and all the deceitfulness of my past, and now I stand here restored
I’m on the right road now! Towards righteousness!
I fear NO EVIL LORD!
I already know you got me.
Can’t nobody mess with your children
As I sit among the rest in this world
You have shown me right from wrong
And as I follow you Lord
You have shown me favor
I’m overflowing with Blessings Jesus
As I keep coming closer and closer to you
As long as I keep my eyes forward and not backward
I won’t loose sight of where I’m going
And I’m going to keep doing fine
Despite my enemies’ wishes
Lord I praise your name as the most high!
I follow you
Thank you Jesus for this revelation!
I’m Sooo Inspired!
