Applekie Se Kuierplekkie



Make Time For God

I woke up this morning and knew that today,
The sun would not be shining and the clouds would be gray!

As I stepped outside, rain fell upon my head.
My car wouldn’t start so I walked to school instead.

I forgot all of my assignments. I failed all of my tests.
I dropped my head in disgust and asked the Lord for one request

“Lord, why is it that things won’t go my way?”!

He gently replied, “Dear child it is because you didn’t thank me yesterday I woke you up and enabled you to see the sun again!

I gave you shelter, protected your family, and even let you make a new friend.

I blessed you far greater than I ever had before.
But you were too busy to thank me once more.

You didn’t feel sick because I maintained your health.
You had money in your pocket because I maintained your wealth!

You had shoes on your feet and clothes to wear, too.
You had plenty of food to eat, and what did you do?

You ignored me and went about your tasks.
But when you wanted something you never hesitated to ask.

I was there when you needed me and that wasn’t too long ago.
But when things started going your way it was me you did not know.

As if that weren’t enough, I provided your favorite luxuries.
This was something I didn’t have to do they weren’t even necessities

And when it was time to get on your knees and show your gratitude,!
You decided that after such a fulfilling day, you weren’t in the mood

So I decided to give you just a little test.!
To show you how it would feel to stop being blessed.”

I began to realize what The Lord was saying.
And when I got home, I fell to my knees and started praying.

He said, “My child, you have learned and you know I do forgive.
But remember this day as long as you shall live.

I love filling your life with joy, and your pain I’ll alleviate it.
But just a simple thank you would show how much you appreciate it.

    Another sleepless night
    I’m still starin’ at the ceiling
    I can hear him fighting
    With her for no good reason
    Will this ever end?
    Will this house be a home again?

    If I had my way
    I’d corner him and say
    Put yourself in her position
    All she needs is recognition
    Love’s not enough when you say it
    Don’t you know you’ve gotta mean it
    Screwing up the best thing ever
    Is something you’ll regret forever

    Another day goes by and nothing changed
    He’s still the same
    I can hear her cryin
    Thinking she’s the one to blame
    Will this ever end?
    Will this house be a home again?

    If I had my way
    I’d corner him and say
    Put yourself in her position
    All she needs is recognition
    Loves not enough when you say it
    Don’t you know you gotta mean it?
    Screwing up the best thing ever
    Is something you’ll regret forever
    Take her and make sure she feels it
    Let her know you’ll never let her go

    Screwing up the best thing ever
    Is something you’ll regret forever
    Another sleepless night and nothing changed
    He’s still the same
    Another stupid fight and someone’s gotta say

    Put yourself in her position
    All she needs is recognition
    Loves not enough when you say it
    Don’t you know you gotta mean it?
    Screwing up the best thing ever
    Is something you’ll regret forever
    Take her and make sure she feels it
    Let her know you’ll never let her go
    Never let her go
    No, no, no

    Put yourself in her position
    All she needs is recognition
    Take her and make sure she feels it
    Let her know you’ll never let her go

    Faber Drive – sleepless night (never let her go)
