Extended Tour of Hell

Dear Lord,

Okay, I am certain you are trying to teach me something here, but a hint or two on what I am supposed to be learning would sure be nice.

I know that sometimes I am not supposed to understand, but Lord, I am a pretty slow learner. If you could maybe just point me in the direction you are trying to lead me, I would be forever thankful.

And Lord?

I was wondering…

I have really had enough of this extended tour of Hell and have really figured out it is not where I would ever like to be. Ya figure you can bring me topside again anytime soon?

    Cricket, I love your candor! I think that the Lord really enjoys prayers like this!

    There is a song that I listen to when I feel this way that helps motivate me.

    If You’re Going Through Hell
    Rodney Atkins

    If You’re Going Through Hell
    Well you know those times
    When you feel like there’s a sign there on your back
    Says I don’t mind if ya kick me
    Seems like everybody has
    Things go from bad to worse
    You’d think they can’t get worse than that
    And then they do

    You step off the straight and narrow
    And you don’t know where you are
    Use the needle of your compass
    To sew up your broken heart
    Ask directions from a genie
    In a bottle of Jim Beam
    And she lies to you
    That’s when you learn the truth

    If you’re going through hell
    Keep on going, don’t slow down
    If you’re scared, don’t show it
    You might get out
    Before the devil even knows you’re there

    Well I been deep down in that darkness
    I been down to my last match
    Felt a hundred different demons
    Breathing fire down my back
    And I knew that if I stumbled
    I’d fall right into the trap that they were laying, yeah

    But the good news
    Is there’s angels everywhere out on the street
    Holding out a hand to pull you back up on your feet
    The one’s that you’ve been dragging for so long
    You’re on your knees
    You might as well be praying
    Guess what I’m saying

    If your going through hell
    Keep on going, don’t slow down
    If you’re scared don’t show it
    You might get out
    Before the devil even knows you’re there

    Yeah, If you’re going through hell
    Keep on moving, face that fire
    Walk right through it
    You might get out
    Before the devil even knows your there

    If you’re going through hell
    Keep on going, don’t slow down
    If your scared don’t show it
    You might get out
    Before the devil even knows your there

    Yeah, If your going through hell
    Keep on moving, face that fire
    Walk right through it
    You might get out
    Before the devil even knows you’re there
    Yeah, you might get out
    Before the devil even knows your there.

    I always ask for a giant neon arrow, smack upside the head and kick in the butt toward the right direction. Anything less I won’t get. 😉
