The Mind of a Quitter
I thought that every day was going to be a good day.
I did not know it would be this hard.
The battle in my mind is so intense I just want to shut it off.

I am trying to sleep but I can’t stop thinking.
You tell me to keep praying, but there is a war going on it seems to be so hard.

I don’t fill like a soldier I just want to quit. I did not know it would be like this they said God is going to bless me. Where is the blessing? I keep hearing this voice telling me to quit! Just quit!
I got to put on my face before I get to church. I can’t let Apostle McKenzie see me like this I am a wreck I just want to quit maybe I will fill better.
I did better before I got saved at least I had some money. At least I had fun, and I had friends.
The Mind of a Winner
I did not know it would be this hard, I got to keep it moving.
The battle in my mind is so intense, I got to keep it moving.
I am trying but it doesn’t seem like I am getting anywhere, but I must to keep it moving
I am trying to sleep but I can’t stop thinking, I got to keep it moving so I will lay here and think on the goodness of The Lord and how He sacrificed His life for me.
They tell me to keep praying, but there is a war going on in my mind, so I will meditate on the word of God!
I walk by faith not by sight
I am more than a conquer
I speak the word “wait I say wait on The Lord
I look to the hills from which comes my help my help comes from The Lord

1 Peter 4:12,13 (NKJV) Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; 13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
