I was born in Tennessee, late July humidity,
Doctors said I was lucky to be alive
I've been troubled since the day that I got here,
Troubled to the day I disappear
That'll be the day that I finally get it right

There is hope, for me yet,
Because God won't forget,
All the plans HE's made for me
I have to wait and see,
HE's not finished with me yet,
HE's not finished with me yet

I never really was that good in school;
Talked too much, broke the rules
My teachers thought I was a hopeless fool, all right.
I don't know how but I made it through,
It's one of those things that you gotta do
I always had a knack for telling the truth.

There is hope, for me yet,
Because God won't forget,
All the plans HE's made for me
I have to wait and see,
HE's not finished with me yet,
HE's not finished with me yet

Still wonderin' why I'm here.
Still wrestling with my fear
But oh... HE's up to something,
And the farther out I go,
I've seen enough to know
That I'm not here for nothin'...
He's up to somethin'.

So now's my time to be a man,
Follow my heart as far as I can
No tellin' where I'm ending up tonight
I never slow down (or so it seems),
But singing my heart is one of my dreams
All I gotta do is hold on tight.

There is hope, for me yet,
Because God won't forget,
All the plans HE's made for me
I have to wait and see,
HE's not finished with me yet,
HE's not finished with me yet
HE's not finished with me yet,
HE's not finished with me yet

GOD, teach me to trust You
Teach me to follow You
Teach me about You
GOD, bless us
GOD, lead us

    This song is an excellent expression of god's fatherhood toward us, the dreams that he has for us, that he has rightfully planted in us. Would that we would see them, recognize them for what they are, and follow them to end of the line. His strength is what allows us to do that, we are to use that strength, not just our own.

    No matter what people say to you, do what is right. Stand up for what you believe in, and what you know is right even if it means you have to stand alone phsyically. God is right by your side and he is helping you through it all. He is standing by you, and he's never letting you go. Only way you'll be separated by him is if you let go first, but hold on tight to him. He's your only hope. He's everyone's only hope.

    I am nothing without god, i can do nothing without god. He is my strength, my hope, and my salvation. I need to stop trying to change myself, because only god can do that. He's got a plan for me; i need to let go of my fears and have faith that he'll show me where to go.

    I may not understand everything or even anything about why i am where i am today, but i can trust that god has me in his hands, and he'll lead me in the best paths for my life (ps 32:8) because the thoughts he has towards me are of good and not evil (jer 29:11)

    I have messed up more times than i can count or remember. It's easy to remember all the reasons why the world doesn't want me. All the reasons i don't deserve god's reward for me. That's why i am so thankful for his plans and his grace. He has overcome not only the world, but who i had been. There's hope for me, because he said so.
