i give up...
the money ain't adding up.
the discouraging emails keep coming in.
the eviction notice. the not being able to get home for funerals or family gatherings.
the car breaking down.
the children locked up. the oppression.
the rejections. the not sure which way to go. the tears that won't stop falling.
the flood waters rising. the doubt creeping in.
the final notices. the lay off.
the house fire.
the we're not hiring.
the what else could possibly happen now.
the standing and hoping anyway.
the not sure how this is going to work out but...
the let's shoot our shot...
the "God will supply all your needs..."
the "He will never leave you nor forsake you.."
the "You're a good good Father..."
the don't be anxious about tomorrow...
the "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare[a] and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."
