~~~~THOUGHTS ON A SUNDAY MORNING~~~~ Just Stand

I was so moved watching Rev. Donnie McClurkin yesterday as he sang at the going home service of Miss Whitney Houston.  Today I'm sharing the lyrics of his amazing song with you in hopes you will be equally blessed... 

~STAND~

What do you do when you've done all you can
And it seems like it's never enough?
And what do you say when your friends turn away
And leave you all alone?
Tell me, what do you give when you've given your all
And it seems you can't make it through?

Well you just stand
When there nothing left to do
You just stand,
Watch the Lord see you through
Yes, after you've done all you can,
You just stand

Tell me, how do you handle the guilt from your past?
Tell me, how do you deal with the shame?
And how can you smile while your heart has been broken
And filled with pain?
Tell me what do you give when you've given your all
Seems like you can't make it through?

Child, you just stand when there's nothing left to do
You just stand, watch the Lord see you through
Yes, after you've done all you can,
You just stand

Stand and be sure
Be not entangled in that bondage again
You just stand, and endure
God has a purpose,
Yes God has a plan

Tell me what do you do when you've done all you can
And it seem like you cant make it through?
Child, you just stand,you just stand, stand

Don't dare give up through the storm, stand through the rain
Through the hurt,yeah,through the pain
Don't you bow, and don't bend don't give up,no, don't give in
Hold on, just be strong, God will step in and it won't be long

After you've done all you can
After you've gone through the hurt
After you've gone through the pain
After you've gone through the storm
After you've gone through the rain
Prayed and cried, you've prayed and cried
Prayed and cried, prayed and cried
After you've done all you can, you just stand.

Child you just stand,

When there's nothing left to do
You just stand
Watch the Lord see you through
Yes, after you've done all you can
You just stand.

Blessings and love to you...

Isn't it AWESOME that God always keeps His promises towards us? When He says that He'll never leave us, nor forsake us..for example... :) :) I love it that God always keeps His promises. Have a great weekend. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

One of my favorites. There are just no words for this unfortunate event. She had voice directed by God i'm sure of it. The whitney of years ago will surely be missed. The only comfort I take in this is she left behind much of her beautiful voice on record for us to hear for years and years. Hugs. T
