Only the world

Been a hard one, been a bad one, been a tough one, been a sad one,
Its been one of those days that keep chipping away in my heart
Nothing new here, its what I do here, its a steriotypical day in this life
I'm surrounded by all the pain and the strife but I know its alright
Cos its only the world I'm living in
It's only a day I've been given
There aint no way I'm giving in
Cos its only the world
I know the best is still yet to come
Cos even when my days in the world are done
There's gonna be so much more than only the world to me

Anybody can you hear me? Do you feel me: I mean do you feel me
I know I'm not the only one bearing the weight of this world
We've got problems-say its alright
Take a good look around, we're just stuck on the ground for a little while
Cos heaven is a place where every tear on every face will be wiped away
Oh and I cant wait to go but for now its enough to know that this is only to the glory of His name
Its only the world

Every dreamer starting with Joseph has had to have their dream tested and challenged. Joseph dreamed a dream...he saw members of his family bowing down to him...wait a minute...in the dream there was no pit, no antagonistic behaviour by his brothers, no tempting allures from his rich Mistress....(he had been made Lord over Portipars house....i guess for those of us who are weak, that gorgeous flesh...nyama...must have been truly enticing)and you know what, the dream left out the prison part.

the world is made up of successful people who went through painful occurances in their lives. some to the point of death....'then josph dreamed another dream.' there are times in life that God just comes in our circumstances to reaffirm our position. you are a success extravagant grace. you are not doomed by the pain you see now....yes this is the world but remember your position will be re-established and joy comes in the morning where there has been weeping in the night.
when you enter that palace, the place of your honour, you'll remember the pain as having given you a chance to be molded well in the porters hands.....

this is not what i think when i go through pain...i wish i could...am a complainer...the porter is in charge of our lives though.

In the beginning.... there was night and there was day. If God made it that night came before day, then the day is still coming.
