GOLD!!!

They’re gonna be many times that the crowd won’t cheer…

Many times the crowd wouldn’t even show up in the first place…

They’re gonna be many times your heart will be the only one beating

To the rhythm and the beat of the Savior

And they’re gonna be many times when you’ll feel like you’re on your own

With your back against the wall…you against the world

I’ve learnt that we don’t like these times…

When the suns out and all is grey

But we NEED these times

Trust me we do

We need a governor to keep our speed in check coz sometimes

We’re headed nowhere too fast

We need the pressure to keep our will on its knees

Its only when its dark…that we’ll have to seek some light…the light

Because more often than not…our minds…our souls can’t hold it down

We need doses of reality…we need to always know whats true

And what best to do so than those situations that kick the breathe out of us and cause us to think…?

They’re gonna be many times that the crowd won’t cheer…

Many times the crowd wouldn’t even show up in the first place…

They’re gonna be many times your heart will be the only one beating

To the rhythm and the beat of the Savior

I was in such a situation not so long ago…

And though i was first to cry foul and ask God why it had to be how i didn’t want it to be…

I was caused to realise that it takes only fire to purify gold…

And i want to be Gold.

So i’mma be still and know that He is God…

Go through the fires…stay put in the flames…

I’mma stay there…we will stay there…

We’ll stay in the fire till we come out

GOLD.

*I pray this encourages someone who like me…like us…goes through times that make us question if there is a God…question so hard that we fail to see His seal on it all…for those who have been, are or will be through the fires of life…He’s there in the flames with us…and that’s ALL we need to know.

‘…we going through the fire…and coming out GOLD!’ Beckah Shae
