I get down

The last few days I haven't felt very well. I think it's a combination of allergies/asthma stuff. I believe it's really related to spiritual warfare though. I got bold and made a statement about trusting God and here I am with a perfect opportunity to put into practice what I said I was going to do.

I don't know about you, but it's hard to fight when I don't feel well. I tend to focus on myself and what I need to do but don't feel like doing. But that's okay. If I fail, He will pick me up again.

There is a song by Audio Adrenalin called "Get Down." The words are really neat. I especially love the choruses.

Lavishly our lives are wasted
Humbleness is left untasted
You can't live your life to please yourself , yeah
That's a tip from my mistakes
Exactly what it doesn't take
To win you've got to come in last place
To live your life you've got to lose it
And all the losers get a crown

I get down and
He lifts me up
I get down and
He lifts me up
I get down and
He lifts me up
I get down

All I need's another day
Where I can't seem to get away
From the many things that drag me down, yeah
I'm sure you've had a day like me
Where nothing seems to set you free
From the burdens you can't carry all alone
In your weakness He is stronger
In Your darkness He shines through
When you're crying He's your comfort
When your all alone, He's carrying you

This valley is so deep
I can barely see the sun
I cry out for mercy,
Lord You lift me up again

So regardless of whether I succeed or fail in my quest, God will be glorified. That makes me feel better already.
