There will be mountains that I will have to climb
And there will be battles that I will have to fight
But victory or defeat, it's up to me to decide
But how can I expect to win If I never try.

I just can't give up now
I've come too far from where I started
Nobody told me the road would be easy
And I don't believe he brought me this far to leave me

Never said there wouldn't be trials
Never said I would't fall
Never said that everything would go the way I want it to go
But when my back is against the wall
And I feel all hope is gone,
I'll just lift my head up to the sky
And say help me to be strong

I just can't give up now
I've come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me the road would be easy
And I don't believe he brought me this far to leave me

Hook:
I know you didn't bring me, out here to leave me lonely
Even when I can't see clearly
I know that you are with me (so I can't)

I just can't give up now
I've come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me the road would be easy
And I don't believe he brought me this far to leave me

    The song touched me. I went through difficult times and i thought i was loosing it. But i prayed and fought for what i belived in, with the grace of god and his guidance i managed to pull through. And i am still praying that i be strong. Cause i just cant give up now, i ve come too far from where i started from.

    No matter how tough it may get don't lose hope nd definately don't give up especially on god coz he doesn't put us in situations that are too hard to conquer. Good ppl don't 4get we are all winners,prospers,fighters nd we are here to fly nd rise up high.

    The song is the whole meaning of being a christain. To not give up when times get hard. To trust in your god. One time, back when the atkins' were little, one of the kids says "we're poor" and ms. Tina atkins, 5years old at the time says "we're not poor, we just don't have some things. " even at that time, at five years old, she trsuted god to bring them through. Look at them now. God can do the same for anyone. He's just waiting for you to ask. And not leave him when times get hard. This song is god asking you "do you trust me? "

    My faith was shaken because of falling into temptation for the past few months. I started to wonder if god still loves me and would take me back even after 11 years of salvation, or if i should just give up on salvation altogether compared to being a hypocrite. I thought i was in control until i lost it, the road was tough and fell. I have been battling and trying to find solace but everywhere i turned, god was the only true solution, his love is comfort and when we live in him that is where we find strength to get back up again... Nothing can separate us from the love of god, even the past that haunts us for a long while does not mean he hasn't forgiven us. So for me this song encourages me to make peace with god over the sin and not to give up or give in when the next trial comes. Thee road isn't easy but we've come too far for him to leave us. He doesn't want anyone to go to hell but to be with him eternally! :)
