(1998)

This one is pretty simple. I was reading Job and I thought the verses had the makings of a good song. The verses are taken right from scripture. I was amazed by the faith that Job had in the Lord even when it seemed that God had left him. He was attacked from every angle. His children dead, his livestock gone, his health taken. His friends advised him to give up, his wife also. But he put his hope in the Lord. It just reminded me that there will be times when stuff just falls apart and I donít get how it could possibly be good for me, but God is seeing all this from a view of the woman and servant He wants me to be. So I am thankful for the hard times, I donít like them but I am thankful.

Have you ever given order to the morning
Or shown the dawn its place
It is the spirit of God that has saved me
My focus, focus is on His face

My heart is the Lord's
It abides in Him yes it does
If He asked me to conquer every ocean
Iíd see how far we could swim

So many, so many times I have gone wrong
Those are the, those are the moments when Iím not so strong
That doesnít, that doesnít make excuses right
Pardon me while I cry

I was at the top, figured I'd stop
Pulled my life aside, and then I compromised
Doesn't matter, ain't no thang
Cus I know that, Jesus is my King

So many, so many times I have gone wrong
Those are the, those are the moments when Iím not so strong
That doesnít, that doesnít make excuses right
Pardon me while I cry
