Well Divas,

I know that many of you have been enduring some very difficult and emotional situations, me included. It seems that before I can recover from one thing BAM! - something else happens to knock me down. I have been really struggling these past 18 months and the pressure of it all has taken its toll by regaining weight (arghhh!!)

But I've finally reached a point where I am done feeling sorry for myself - pity party is OVA'!! And I can look back and say "Ha, I'm still standing" despite all the curve balls thrown my way. I found much comfort in listening to Marvin Sapp's song "Here I Am" and I wanted to share it with each of you. The link and lyrics are below. I hope this uplifts someone's spirit and motivates them to continue on...

"Here I Am" by Marvin Sapp

Here I am. I'm still standing.
Here I am after all I've been through. I survived.
Every toil every snare. I'm alive. I'm alive.
Here I ammm. Ooooh yes

There were times when I almost gave up.
And I've cried and said Lord it's too much.
El-Shadai, He was there all the time,
By His grace He is keeping me alive.
By His grace and mercy I'm still standing, standing.
I'm standing in the presence of the Almighty with power and a testimony.
I'm standing here today with one thing to say Lord I thank You, I thank you thank You.
For Here I am I'm still standing
Here I am after all been through, I survived every toil every snare, I'm alive I'm alive .
Here I am. I'm still standing.
Here I am after all I've been through. I survived. Every toil every snare i'm alive I'm alive

All of the pain I had to go through, It gave powerand a testimony.
Now I'm standing here today with one thing to say, Lord I thank You Lord I thank You. Thank You. Here I am It's because of Your grace.
Here I stand it's because of Your grace.
Here I am, It's because of Your goodness. And I thank You Lord Yes, Yes, Yes.
Here I am Its because of Your mercy,
Here I Stand (Yes I do) It's because of Your grace, With only one prayer It's because of Your goodness and I thank You. Yes, Yes, Yes

All of the pain that I had to go through, It gave power and a testimony. Now I'm standing here today, with one thing to say Lord I Thank You, I thank You OOh OOoh, I'm still standing, I'm still standing, standing
There's so much crisis trials and my tests, I'm still standing, still standing.
Say yes,yes yes, yes, yes.
The devil is defeated, yes
The devil is defeated, yes, yes yes,
Through every trial, yes,
Through every test, yes,
Through every trouble, yes,
Only confess, yes,
I'll say yes, yes,
I'll say yes, yes,yes,
Here I am I'm still standing,
Here I am, After all I've been through, I survived, Every toil every snare. I'm alive I'm alive.
Here I am...

So Divas, no matter what you may be going through, know that YOU CAN SURVIVE. Just don't give up. Keep pushing through, because united we STAND!!

Be Blessed
