Don't Give Up

Don't Give Up

A Poem by Tinasha LaRayé

Just Don't!

when you feel like giving up
because you can't always trust your feelings
emotions are not faithful
always changing with the wind
uprooting our lives through our minds from within
so instead of throwing in the towel over something that's paper thin
stand on your 2 feet and keep walking til that seed you planted starts talking 
with his fruit
the proof that your pursuit was not empty
nor in vain
and stains from tears soon fade away
and bruises and wounds soon heal
because God needs your body to fulfill His will
God needs this body to fulfill His will
God needs the body of Christ to fulfill His will foreseen before we ever had sight
and if we saw what He sees 
we'd know it'll be alright and 
already working for our good to come and 
our good that's already here
when you feel like giving up
tomorrow - you just might feel differently
when you hear His voice in your ear
if you'd just stand 
til tomorrow draws near

I like this, I think I like the ending the most "Tomorrow-you just might feel differently, when you hear His voice in your ear, If you'd just stand, til tomorrow draws near." Sometimes life seems hard and you feel it might not be worth it, but like this says, you never know how you will feel tomorrow, perhaps hope and faith will come more alive in you and help you carry on.

Good Job

By the same logic, success is not faithful. So why chase it?
It is better to give up before you die than to fail forever.
