When you're down and you're out,
And things don't go your way,
When life is a problem and
You can't seem to pray,
When there's bitterness, resentment,
Hatred and shame
Just say one more prayer
God is calling your name.
If you're under much stress.
Sorrow, grief or dispair,
When the world's coming down
And no one seems to care,
When love has departed
And it is more than you can bear
Just take one more look
God is standing right there.
When you're just giving up
And don't want to go on
And nothing makes sense
There's no joy and no down,
When your burdens are more
Than you think you can stand
Then open your eyes
God is holding your hand.
And with Him beside you
He'll lighten your way
Bringing hope to your future
With every new day.
All He asks is to listen
And watch out for Him there
And when you're least expecting
He'll answer that prayer.
God's given you this day
To be happy and live
And if you'll accept it,
He's much more to give
Now take one more look
At this life that's a chore~
Turn around, walk with Jesus
He's opened the door

Give me faith, dear God, to face,
Each hour throughout the day;
And not to worry over things,
I can't change in any way.

So thank you, God, for listening
To my troubles and my sorrow;
Good night, God.  I love You, too,
And I'll call again tomorrow!

A very special friend sent me this on Tue, 23 May 2000
when I was feeling down.
The last couple of days I have been having a difficult
time, where the weight of the world seems
to be on my shoulders.
I pray and say the serenity prayer and still my mood seems to be low.
I know today this to shall pass, but being an alcoholic and addict
It can be a battle of the brain.
I was looking through my files and came across this piece.
I read it and smiled.
Realizing I'm right where I am suppose to be.
with God in one hand and AA in the other,
I will be ok!
