" Start Over"
When you've trusted God and walked his way
When you've felt His hand lead you day by day
But your steps now take you another way...
When you've made your plans and they've gone awry
When you've tried your best and there's no more try
When you've failed yourself and you don't know why...
When you've told your friends what you plan to do
When you've trusted them and they didn't come through
And now you're all alone and it's up to you...
When you've failed your kids and they're grown and gone
When you've done your best but it's turned out wrong
And now your grandchildren have come along...
When you've prayed to God so you'll know His will
When you've prayed and prayed and you don't know still
When you want to stop cause you've had your fill...
When you think you're finished and want to quit
When you've bottomed out in life's deepest pit
When you've tried and tried to get out of it...
When the year has been long and successes few
When December comes and you're feeling blue
God gives a January just for you...
Starting over means "Victories Won"
Starting over means "A Race Well Run"
Starting over means " God's Will Be Done"
Don't just sit there.......
