Encouragment through song

I've been stressed lately because our current state of unemployment depletes our financial resources. No matter how hard I try not to listen to the nagging voice in the back of my mind, I can't seem to hear much except, "What are you going to do?" 


I don't have all the answers, but this song reminds me that I have at least one option. I can MOVE!

I hope you enjoy this by Mercy Me, and I hope it picks up your spirits as much as it does mine!



I'm not about to give up
Because I heard you say
There's gonna be brighter days
There's gonna be brighter days
I won’t stop, I’ll keep my head up
No, I'm not here to stay
There's gonna be brighter days
There's gonna be brighter days

I just might bend but wont break
As long as I can see your face

(Chorus)
When life won’t play along
And right keeps going wrong
And I can’t seem to find my way
I know where I am bound
So I won’t let it drag me down
Oh, I'll keep dancing anyway

I'm gonna move (move)
I'm gonna move (move)
I'm gonna move

I’ve got to hold 'er steady
Keep my head in the game
Everything is about to change
Everything is about to change

This hurt is getting heavy
But I'm not about to cave
Everything is about to change
There's gonna be brighter days

I just might bend but won’t break
As long as I can see your face

(Chorus)

No matter what may come
Gotta move to a different drum
No matter what life brings
Gotta move gotta move to a different beat (x2)

I just might bend but wont break
As long as I can see your face

(Chorus) x2
(Album available May 4th --The Generous Mr. Lovewell.)

Great song!
Do you know where Mercy Me got their name?
No? Well, one day the lead singer was visiting his grandmother, telling her about the band and she said, "Mercy me, when are you gonna get a real job?"
And there you have it.

Thanks for that bit of info. That is funny. His lack of a real job has blessed so many!

I have to thank LaVon for making me laugh. Now that is encouragement!
