Real Stories of Everyday Saints

Recording by Ed

mp3 / wma
I was so self sufficient
Somehow I never felt whole
As I faced temtation
The Devil he came for my soul
He could see my every weakness
And whispered "No one will know"
You see sin always takes me
Much farther than I want to go

So don't give up on me dear God
I failed You again
I'm down on my knees dear God
Don't know where to begin
I guess one bad choice can lead
To the trouble I'm in
Don't give up on me dear God
I failed You again

As I'm in situations
You test and I come undone
It weighs almost nothing
So why can't I hold my tongue
For some life's a journey
For me it's one bumpy ride
And I can't settle my conflicts out there
Till I find peace inside

Don't give up on me dear God
I failed You again
I'm down on my knees dear God
Don't know where to begin
I guess one bad choice can lead
To the trouble I'm in
Don't give up on me dear God
I failed You again

There is life and death in our words
But we don't realize
The harm that is done to another
When we criticize

So don't give up on me dear God
I failed You again
I'm down on my knees dear God
Forgive me this sin
Just one bad choice can lead
To the trouble I'm in
So don't give up on me dear God
I failed You again
Nailed to a tree
I finally see
You don't give up on me

God always open hands for us to embrace no matter how big or small sins you have had.its just us who never ask of his forgiveness.TRy to come to him and im sure your burdens become lighter and even you wouldnt notice that everything is gone.give chance to yourself god is forgiving..

This is a beautiful song and helps me to realize that everyone fails God from time to time. That's why Jesus came and died for us; because we can't do it by ourselves.

God's grace is brand new every single day to those who ask. If it weren't for that, we'd all have no hope whatsoever. Great song! God will NOT give up on us, ever. We may give up on Him, but He is everlasting in our lives.

Thank God for the gift of music, during trials and spiritual misgivings this song would uplift and help the soul soar to the heavens in thankfulness. God Bless you all
I am thankful God has not given up on Me. That's not His style and I wish I could swallow and digest that message...
He IS Great!
I must admit that sometimes, I feel so discrete to our Lord Jesus Christ leading to feeling guilty about it. I'm so sorry Lord God..I would like to thank the songwriter of this song. For making me realize that there's really SOMEBODY ABOVE who is really watching over us and for making us feel that we are secured enough with HIM. Praise the LORD!
i love this song!
Trully sometimes we feel so far from God because of a mistake or wrong decision we make but this song shows us that God chose us for his glory.This song is an answer at the right time.thank you.
