The Value of Support

A little while ago I posted on Facebook how grateful I am to my friends who support me. And I truly am grateful to them. I know how it feels to not have support from people I thought that would stand by me. It hurts! But that hurt has made me incredibly grateful to those friends who are supporting me. Friends who won’t give up on me. TobyMac is one of my favorite singers and he wrote a song that I absolutely love the lyrics to. It is called “Speak Life.” Here are the lyrics:
Some days, life feels perfect.
Other days it just ain’t workin.
The good, the bad, the right, the wrong
And everything in between.

Though it’s crazy, amazing
We can turn a heart with the words we say.
Mountains crumble with every syllable.
Hope can live or die

So speak Life, speak Life.
To the deadest darkest night.
Speak life, speak Life.
When the sun won’t shine and you don’t know why.
Look into the eyes of the brokenhearted;
Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope,
You speak love, you speak…
You speak Life, (oh oh oh oh oh oh) You speak Life. (oh oh oh oh oh oh)

Some days the tongue gets twisted;
Other days my thoughts just fall apart.
I do, I don’t, I will, I won’t,
It’s like I’m drowning in the deep.

Well it’s crazy to imagine,
Words from our lips as the arms of compassion,
Mountains crumble with every syllable.
Hope can live or die.

So speak Life, speak Life.
To the deadest darkest night.
Speak life, speak Life.
When the sun won’t shine and you don’t know why.
Look into the eyes of the brokenhearted;
Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope,
You speak love, you speak…
You speak Life, (oh oh oh oh oh oh) You speak Life. (oh oh oh oh oh oh)

Lift your head a little higher,
Spread the love like fire,
Hope will fall like rain,
When you speak life with the words you say.

Raise your thoughts a little higher,
Use your words to inspire,
Joy will fall like rain,
When you speak life with the things you say.

Lift your head a little higher,
Spread the love like fire,
Hope will fall like rain,
When you speak life with the words you say

So speak Life, speak Life.
To the deadest darkest night.
Speak life, speak Life.
When the sun won’t shine and you don’t know why.
Look into the eyes of the brokenhearted;
Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope,
You speak love, you speak…
You speak Life, (oh oh oh oh oh oh) You speak Life. (oh oh oh oh oh oh)

You speak Life, (oh oh oh oh oh oh) You speak Life. (oh oh oh oh oh oh)

Some days life feels perfect.

So,  here it is. A challenge. Are you going to choose to “Speak Life” or will you speak death? Part of my post was this: Sometimes you just need to be patient with people and give them time to grow into the person they need to be. And the person that they want to be. I knew years ago that I wanted to change. But for some people, change isn’t easy. No matter how bad they want it. If they don’t have family support (ie: parents/husband/wife) it will not come easily! But stick with them, in time they will make it. I know, because I’m on of those people who have very little support in my house. Until next time…
