The daily struggles that we feel
To keep our faith with Jesus real
To honor God, obey His call
Means we must offer love to all so all will heal.
When speaking to our God in prayer
We often talk of what is fair
We sense a daily push and pull
Yet His love cannot fill us full; we must repair.
Our choice to walk with Him can free
Or keep us locked in chains, you see
We love our friends and enemies
Or walk away, do what we please; our destiny?
He said it best. “The world will know
Us by our love.” Yes, we must show
His heart, His light, though not our trait.
Abide in God, the Spirit’s weight through us will glow.

(Chorus to song) God is great, but sometimes life ain’t good
When I pray it doesn’t always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway
I do it anyway
