Shhhh.... just be quiet, pay attention and listen!

I really don't have or can't say much this morning.......
I am simply going to tell you the events - and how I know there is a GOD!
alot of stuff is going on in my head... and so - as always - when things are confusing and I begin to question or wonder why this or what that ..... GOD IS ALWAYS there!!!!!

I'm not going to write this big huge blog.....or get all emotional because I have been awake for less than 2 hours, and trust me when I say, I could VERY EASILY break into a supreme ball of tears...

So - when I turn on the radio this morning - this is the song I heard.
I have attached the song and wrote out the lyrics  (I wrote them myself because the song is so new that the lyrics can't even be found online yet!)
and you TRY and tell me that GOD didn't send me this message this morning.....
just try!

PLEASE listen and read along with the lyrics
because someone else needs to hear this today - I'm passing it on  :)



God's up to something - Clay Underwood

Verse 1
No money, no real friends
hit rock bottom of the bottle again
Losing hope, losing control
now the devil's coming after your soul
don't give up, don't be scared.
cause brother I've been there

Chorus:
Can you feel it
Change is coming
someone's working on a plan
There's a reason for your suffering
hold on just as long as you can
cause when your down to nothing
God's up to something

Verse 2
Lord giveth, Lord takes away
cleans you out and leaves you looking for change
on your knees, losing it all
like the trees losin their leaves in the fall
i know your bare, i know your cold
but your not alone

Chorus:
Can you feel it
Change is coming
someone's working on a plan
There's a reason for your suffering
hold on just as long as you can
cause when your down to nothing

God's up to something good,
something new, something better for you

Can you feel it
change is coming
you know He's working on a plan
there's a reason for your suffering
hold on just as long as you can
cause when your down to nothing
God's up to something

Now - after I found this song online, I accidentally ran across another song by Clay Underwood.
I don't know anything about this song.......if it's old, if it's new
but I will tell you this - sometimes GOD will just keep speaking if you just keep listening.......

I know most of you have read about or know me personally and you know the story of me and Preacher T.
Yes - some days I want to wring his little neck  {XOXO}
Some days the things I love MOST about him drive me absolutely BATS!!
And some days he does things or says things that I don't understand.....
BUT most days, there isn't a person in the world that can make me smile like he does.
So when I accidentally found this song, I couldn't help but share it with you too.  it reminds me TOO much of his favorite place in the world and my favorite thing to do with him...when life gets to be too much to handle...



New Beginnings - Clay Underwood

Nothin' but a suitcase and her feet on the dashboard
Radio blastin', we're laughin' back and forth
Holdin' hands with no plans, and oh man do we feel alive.
We got a job in the big town to pay for that run down
Motel, no tellin' how long we hold out
In a little room, pretty soon she was cryin' to her momma at night.
Well, I knew I had to do something quick,
I thought the honky tonk down the road might do the trick.

Chorus:
And we danced all night to Conway and Haggard.
Three shots, a two-step, and the one thing that mattered
Was holdin' each other close, and gettin' lost in the moment.
By closin' time we were open for business.
The only thing on our minds was huggin' and kissin'
And she went from cryin all day to lovin' me all night long.
Thank God for new beginnings and old honky tonks.

Verse 2:
Under the pressure of an overdue mortgage.
Wanna go on vacation, but we can't afford it.
Pullin' double shifts on weekends
Raisin' kids and barely gettin' by.
She said baby I think we need a break.
We dropped the kids off at her momma's, and we were drinkin' by eight.

Chorus:
And we danced all night to Conway and Haggard.
Three shots, a two-step, and the one thing that mattered
Was holdin' each other close, and gettin' lost in the moment.
By closin' time we were open for business.
The only thing on our minds was huggin' and kissin'
And I went from workin' all day to lovin' her all night long.
Thank God for new beginnings and old honky tonks.

Great song. I have to remind myself of this all the time. It's very hard to remember to let God take care of it.

I believe he speaks to us in many different ways! We just don't always hear him or want to listen.

I hope he gives you the answers to what you are looking for. :)

Both of those songs speak to me in different ways this morning. I've been going through a TON of stuff this week, life-changing stuff, as you have. How about you pray for me, I'll pray for you?
