Never ever stop believing...or praying

For my incredible Son-In-Law, Roger L. Rance - a Brand-New Man & a Real Hero!

All Is Not Lost
Music & Lyrics: Rhonda S. Galizia



A whirlwind swept through my life today
Well, it blew in and carried ev'rything away
Now all that's standing is a wall with a cross
And it's reminding me...[that] all is not lost.

Oh touch my heart, Lord, and make me whole
Then penetrate my troubled soul!
Hold me close in Your embrace
Pour out on me, Your wondrous grace
Just let me cling, onto Your cross
And I will know... all is not lost.

1. I used to live my life for all that's vain;
Seeking out [the] empty praises of men
All my treasures bought, old and new
Well, they never had a thing to do with You.

2. I spent my days complainin' 'bout my job
Spent my nights drinkin' gin and playin' cards
Smokin' pot and playin' ponies, was my best bet
To me, my wife and boys - they were second-best.

CHORUS Then...

3.  Then just today, I got this call
Well, the lawyer let me know, I'd lost it all
For my wife and kids have moved away
But she left a note, that had these words to say:

4.  "A whirlwind swept through my life today
It blew in and carried ev'rything away
Now all that's standing is a wall with a cross
And it reminded me, [that] all is not lost!"

CHORUS  Oh yes...

5.  So now, Lord, I'm on my knees to You
'Cause my worthless life - well, it's been torn in two
But if I can just get up,  to cross this floor -
Well, I promise that, I won't deny You, anymore!

6.  Lord, if You'll strike disobedience, from these hands
Well, I believe, that I really can, be a new man
Lord, You can see me now, a-crawlin' to Your cross
I'll take it in my hand, and know that I'm not lost...

I lost it all the same way, yet in my little back pack was a bible, my only possession along with photos of my son...

Best of Godly help..

Just let me cling, onto your cross,
and I wil know... all is not lost.
As Peter has said, never stop believing and praying
And remember to repent when you fall.
