We Can All Relate to This

Now Playing on My Intended iPod:If You're Going Through Hell by Rodney Atkins

Dedicated to a good friend.

And since I know many of you will not click on the link, I've posted the lyrics here.


If You're Going Through Hell

Well you know those times when you feel like
There's a sign there on your back.
Says: "I don't mind if you kick me;
Seems like everybody has."
Things go from bad to worse:
You'd think they can't get worse than that an' then they do.

You step off the straight an' narrow,
An' you don't know where you are.
Use the needle of your compass,
To sew up your broken heart.
Ask directions from a genie,
In a bottle of Jim Beam an' she lies to you.

Well, that's when you learn the truth:
If you're goin' through hell,
Keep on goin'.
Don't slow down:
If you're scared, don't show it.
You might get out,
Before the devil even knows you're there.

Well, I've been deep down in that darkness,
I been down to my last match.
Felt a hundered different demons,
Breathin' fire down my back.
An' I knew that if I stumbled,
I'd fall right into the trap that they were layin', yeah.

But the good news is there's angels,
Everywhere out on the street.
Holdin' out a hand,
To pull you back up on your feet;
The one's that you been draggin' so long,
You're on your knees; you might as well be prayin'.

Guess what I'm sayin':
If you're goin' through hell,
Keep on goin'.
Don't slow down:
If you're scared, don't show it.
You might get out,
'Fore the devil even knows you're there.

Yeah, if you're goin' through hell,
Keep on movin'.
Face that fire:
Walk right through it.
You might get out,
'Fore the devil even knows you're there.

If you're going through hell
Keep on goin'.
Don't slow down:
If you're scared, don't show it.
You might get out,
'Fore the devil even knows you're there.

Yeah, if you're goin' through hell,
Keep on movin'.
Face that fire:
Walk right through it.
You might get out,
'Fore the devil even knows you're there.

Very appropriate today. I needed the reminder and uplift. Thanks for sharing.

I've been missing out...that's for sure. I can't read blogs at work anymore, and so I don't get to them like I used to. Loved the whole page!! Especially the drivers license fiasco. LOL!
Anyway, everything from your beautiful daughters and loving husband to being in hell...
life is grand. I know what you mean.
;)
ps-I have to ask...did you loose your weight through a conventional system or through the book-He Doth Deliver Me?? (if that's the right title)
