Behind the Name

God is awesome; and He is using each heartbreak,
mistake, and tragedy for HIS glory.
Nothing happens in our life without HIS permission.
I have had many wonder why I had to endure so much tragedy.
I truly believe through each trial HE has strengthened me SO I CAN CHEER.
So I can cheer for the hurting, hopeless, and weary.
SO I CAN CHEER for HIM, shouting out HIS name in praise through the good times and bad.
He has taken me From Pom Poms to Prison… SO I CAN CHEER.
Because of HIS grace I am still standing, cheering on HIS VICTORY!
