I'm Still Standing
It's Friday morning and our office closes at noon, I'm looking forward to going home and laying, watch tv, and maybe even take a nap...I'm old you know! As I sit at my computer our office manager is in her office singing the chorus to a song we sing at church, it simply says:
"I'm Still Standing...But For The Grace Of God...I'm Still Standing!"
Without trying to preach and sound too spiritual...I am still standing!
There have been times when the dark one tried to take me out...I'm still standing
There were moments when I though I could make it...I'm still standing
There are days when I'm broke and think I'm sinking...I'm still standing
There are times when my body and mind can't stand anymore...I'm still standing
There may be times when I think God has forgotten me and what He said to me...I'm still standing!
The scripture says that when we've done all to stand...Stand!
Just wanted to tell you, myself, Our Lord, and even the dark one...I'm Still Standing!

I'm not sure if I'm familiar with the song, but I was humming it with you to the tune of "I'm still standing" by Elton John. -LOL

They say that which does not kill you only makes you stronger. I'm thankful for everything that God has brought us through and we're still standing!

Have a great weekend Bro!

People have made the comment to me, "You always seem to land on your feet." Honestly, I have been quite amazed myself at the things my family and I have endured yet we're still here! I can only say, it isn't me. It is God in me that makes me strong.

Still Standing...Still Here...Strong!
What a testimony of the grace of God and His keeping power! I love the verse where Peter says that we are kept by the power of God. We've all been through the fire, floods, faced some devils, stood for right when it would have been easier to quit. We've refused to compromise and be sold, lost people that we loved, loved people that used us and didn't love us back...been the blunt of criticisms and jokes...but we're still here!

I love the Lord and I love the isn't always the easiest profession, but I am so thankful that this is what God has called me to be until I die...I'm entering into the place He has prepared for me...Refusing to be normal, average or mediocre...and I'm still standing!
