What do you do when the world says you're through
you're standing in the dark
What do you say when hope fades away
you're left with a broken heart
Tell me where do you find the strength you need
to answer the call
The place to begin, is when you fall

Where do you go when there's nowhere to go
wondering how you're gonna leave
What do you feel when it all seem so real
and there's nothing more to give
Tell me who do you call when the ships are down
and you face your fears alone
That's when you reach down inside and become strong


I can
I can achieve what seems impossible
I can, cause I'm a believer
And I can, giving a chance I'll seize the opportunity
I'm someone who believes
that I can

Why do you try and continue to try
no matter what the outcome is
Over again you're looking ahead
and finding answer to the quiz
Tell me why do you get back up again
in spite of how hard you fall
You'll find out who you are
through it all


I can
I can achieve what seems impossible
Yes I can, cause I'm a believer
You know I can, if giving a chance I'll seize the opportunity
I'm someone who believes
Believes that I can

I can rise above the clouds and reach beyond the sky
I can sort it if I believe
Just spread my wings and fly
Spread my wings and fly

I can
You know I can if giving a chance I'll seize the opportunity
'Cause I'm someone who believes
I can

This song has been going through my head for quite a while.
I think I identify with the words, but then again, who can't.
Some things I have realized...
  • I am never really alone, God is always there and He has made me an overcomer.
  • He is my helper, my friend, my strength, my hope is in Him.
  • Music also gives me the strength to go on. Being a "musical person" I find meaning in all songs.
As Miley Cyrus says, "It's the Climb"...not the destination.
What we do on a daily basis makes who we will become tomorrow.
We can choose to be defeated or we can take what life has thrown at us and use it for the greater good.
We CAN use it to allow us to grow stronger, to grow closer to God, family, and certain friends.

This song tells me that I CAN be an overcomer, I may fall down or be pushed down or pushed aside, but I CAN get back up, shake myself off and continue on my journey. Helping others along the way who may have just gone through a similar incident or life changing predicament.

Many things have happened in my life the past few months..either with me, a family member or a friend. How I have dealt with those things have made me who I am today.

This song also says that I CAN make it if someone believes in me.
I have been so very blessed to have great parents and friends who stand beside me and say that I CAN do whatever it is I have set out to do. They encourage, pray, come alongside to pick me up if and when I fall. They BELIEVE in me.

So, for those of you who may be going through something or have gone through stuff...YOU CAN make it. Just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and give it another try.

What To Do When You Don't Know What To Do

Ever been there? What do you do when you just don't know what to do? Whether it is a relationship, job, family, education, etc. You are stuck, kind of in a rut, maybe. Your mind is blank or you have run out of options. You are just not sure where you are to go next?

I am at that place. I am a control freak, so I like to know what is going to happen and be in charge. I have been forced to be independant. No one else is going to take care of me, so I have to do it my self. Many times that is dangerous, I know.

Jeremiah 29:11 says that God has plans for us. Sometimes it is just hard to see it in the everyday scheme of things.

I am at the point where I don't know what is ahead, where my future lies. Where will I be in 5 years? Will I be married or still single? Will I be at the same job doing the same duties or will I be somewhere else or doing something totally different. I don't know the answers to ANY of these questions. Not knowing often makes me uncomfortable.

What I DO know is that this is the time when I don't need to DO ANYTHING. I just need to wait, stand still and strong. Relax in this place that God has brought me to.

None of us knows what tomorrow brings, all we have is today.
I am determined to make each day the best it can be and live each day to the fullest, having fun along the way. I am learning to TRUST GOD!!! After all, He knows what is best, and it will all work out for our good.

One Voice

Just One Voice,
Singing in the darkness,
All it takes is One Voice,
Singing so they hear what's on your mind,
And when you look around you'll find
There's more than
One Voice,
Singing in the darkness,
Joining with your One Voice,
Each and every note another octave,
Hands are joined and fears unlocked,
If only
One Voice
Would start it on its own
We need just
One Voice
Facing the unknown,
And that One Voice
Would never be alone
It takes that One Voice.

It takes that one voice
Just One Voice
Singing in the darkness,
All it takes is One Voice,
Shout it out and let it ring.

Just One Voice,
It takes that One Voice,
And everyone will sing!
