I know How Job Felt and I thank you God
Tough times are here
Good time are long gone
I do not know how long I can go on
2 years now and there is no bottom
To the pit I have fallen
I tried to take care of the ones I love.
I tried to be an example to my son.
I have become ill
My body aches
Everyday could be the day
The day they put me away
God knows my innocence
But human treason gave me my sentence
My friends have left me
The ones I loved have denied me
How long can I go on?
I have done nothing wrong.
I now know how Job felt in his trials
When the Devil made his life hell.
I forgive all the transgressions
And I have learned a valuable lesson.
I ask everyone to forgive me for my sins
For I am a mortal man
There is still God and His Grace
I will suffer with hope and faith
If I die today then so be it, let it be done
Because I will enter God's Kingdom
Yes I believe in His truth and love.
He will set me free upon wings of a dove.
So I suffer for I am not alone
Because I am not alone
When I sit by His throne
So I thank you God in this devastating time of my life
And let Jesus take away the strife
My heart is at peace
Because I know you will set me free
And when my health and wealth is restored
I know my loved ones will take notice
That I was true to them with love unselfish
And they will see your Love in me
So they yearn for You to also set them free.
That is my prayer in Jesus's name
I thank You Father for always being there in your Holy name.
