Yea, it’s hard out here for a Person In My Position. See, you look at me and see my smile but you don’t see the tears I just dried. You look at me and see my blessing but you’d never guess about all the things that has me stressing. You look at me and see God’s glory yet you never even stop to ask my story! Oh, it’s hard out here for a person in my position.
In Romans 7:17-23, it says (me paraphrasing) every time I try to do good, bad appears. Every time I try to walk right, left appears looking better. Every time I say I’m going, something holds me back. Every time I try to walk through the door, it closes and then locks. I try but it’s hard. I believe but it’s harder. I even keep my faith but that makes this the hardest. Verse 24 (The Message Bible) says, “I’ve tried everything and nothing helps. I’m at the end of my rope. Is there no one who can do anything for me? Isn’t that the real question?” Then Romans 7:25 says, “The answer, thank God, is that Jesus Christ can and does.” Oh, it’s hard out here for a person in my position but I’m in the best position to be in because I’m in God’s army. As the pastor said on last night, it may be hard out here for a person in my position but there’s a reason for it because with my position there’s purpose in my pain, passion in my prayers and power in my praise! Yes, it’s hard out here for a person in my position but with my position comes hope, joy, an abundance of love, forgiveness, repentance for my sins and best of all; God who is my shield and protection, my provider, my pain reliever, my mind regulator, my heart fixer, my sleep aid, my midnight rocker, my early morning prayer partner, my mid praise praise giver, my yes man, my burden easer and my load carrying partner. Yes, this position may come with a few trials, tribulations, storms, restless nights, more enemies than you care to have, some hurt to your heart, some knock down moments and tears but it’s all worth it when you’ve completed your task and your retirement comes with a payoff that no man can count and an eternal living that surpasses the hell you’ve been through here on earth. Yea, its hard out here for a person in my position but no one can fill it like me!
