Against All Odds!!!

The chips were stacked against me…all I had was a cloudy vision of my destiny,

un-educated, and I had no real plan…I even put my faith in me, and in man.

I tried that, and I tried this…now I stand here today…and I say…it was all amiss.

Chasing after successs…while putting my soul in a deeper and deeper mess.

Trying to obtain all the things that this world told me I could…trying to get all that they say I should.

I walked by sight, not by faith…thinking that it was my way that would usher me into that destined place…not knowing that I was getting further and further behind in this race.

I thank my God, because He didn’t allow Jesus to come, “just” for those who have everything together…those who are already standing strong in the midst of the rough weather,

but rather Jesus came to set captives free…those who’s chips are stacked against them, those like me…He came for those who are blind, but really want to see.

My Lord and Savior came for those of us who are fighting;

Against All Odds!!!

If this is you too…don’t be discouraged by your situation; know that God is faithful and true.

My God chooses those of us who are tore-up…from the floor-up so He can get the glory…from our story.

If you’re already a “Made” man…then people will think that it’s all you-your will, your plan.

Nine times out of ten this you won’t deny…because you forget that your blessings come from Him who sits in the Heavens above the sky.

It’s the struggle in the storm of dust…that bring us to the point where we “KNOW” it’s in God that we can trust.

It’s not profitable to despise where you are, or the things that come against you…know that with you…God is not through.

In the word of God He didn’t just use men of high degree…but rather, He used men who were below average, average, or just plain ordinary…like you, and like me.

I encourage you today, don’t get impatient when waiting on the “ONE” True God and turn to other false god’s…”STAND” ¬†knowing that God is preparing you even now to win;

Against All Odds!!!
