Subject: still standing saturday

still abiding best i know how
growing spiritually in the point of love
which definitely takes courage n the upmost of determining
being after god in here qualify s u 4 more trials n test
as most will seek 2 use u 4 material things
mainly food
long as u say "i got u. here go some soup (ramens) crackers meat cheese etc"
u the best christian since jesus
but the moment u set boundaries that include the word NO
then u a "jail house christian"

determined 2 have my god-given life
i have 2 deal with alotta stuff
respond how im aware jesus did
dont always get it right but
still standing

speaking of which
i can stand as god continues to teach me
like yesterday he taught me from
genesis 5:3
how because my daughter made in my image
(does that make sense?)
same thing with my (future) wife!?

able 2 stand as lately
there's been divine encouragement 2
b the best me
especially on the basketball court
where i tend 2 shy away from playin hard as i can on offence
during competition The season
so as not 2 argue with teammates who also want the ball
yet r less capable scorers
bu now 7m sensin i have 2 step up 2 the plate cause im gifted 2
