Did anyone else lose all of their followers?
Wake up get up get out get tough,
Do work live work need work see work.
Do not tire do not quit do not worry do not sit.
What’s the task what it do, I fight that shit ’til I push through.
Get it done get it goin’ make that paper into somethin’.
You got dreams? I got ’em too so does everyone else you fool.
Who will make it? Too many try so where then lies the great divide?
It’s here you know I tell the truth the barrier between those like you –
Who will work on through the pain who treats the risks like it’s a game,
Who’s fearless who doesn’t doubt who grabs their junk as they strut out.
Walk that line, nod your head, let them see you feel their dread.
Every dreamer is put down, cast away and turned around –
Well, except for those who know one day all perseverance shows,
‘Cause those guys fight on through the rain and keep improving everyday.
Those guys bust their ass through shit those guys never think to quit.
Those guys make it, dreamers do, and if you’re willing you can too.
And on that day when that day comes, those people who mocked you on your run,
Those people will find you turn and say, “Congratulations, let’s hang today!”
Here’s my advice please listen to me, fuck those people who didn’t believe.

There is a passage in the bible where Jesus feeds five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fish.
The food appears to be the same before and after it is raised up to God. There are no additional loaves of bread, and nothing magical happens. So how can we understand this?
The bread is ordinary bread. A person is an ordinary person. We have problems, fears, worries and doubts. We have faced terrible events in our lives that still bother us today.
When you are far from God, in your natural state, all these problems weigh you down. They all seem to be purposeless, random events and make you into a limited being. For instance, because of what happened to you in your past, the future is now bleak.
When you give yourself to God completely, he takes all you have and makes use of it. Your prior struggles help others to Him, your defects suddenly have a purpose. He takes every piece of you and uses it to feed his cause, to feed others. You become the bread that is enough to fill others with the Spirit of God and you will never run thin doing it.
What you have is already enough to serve God’s purpose. He does not need you to become perfect before He can work through you. That is the point – what is given to God will be used by God. It is not your job to create a new self, it is your job to give your being to him. And even then, you will on the outset appear the same, your being will remain the same, but the Spirit will guide you through your work.
It is each man’s choice to keep himself or to give himself to God.
