livin' on a prayer.

"She says we got to hold on to what we got,
It doesn't make a difference if we make it or not.
We got each other and that's alot,
For love we'll give it a shot.

Oh, We're half way there
Oh oh, livin' on a prayer
Take my hand we'll make it I swear!
Oh oh, livin' on a prayer"

- Bon Jovi

This song has been on my mind for about the past week. The small section that I have typed above holds quite a bit of meaning for me. I feel like this is how I want to live each day of my life. I want to "hold on to what we got;" I want to be happy "if we make it or not." Because, "for love I'll give it a shot!" I want to live on a prayer. I want to put all my trust in that prayer and live for love. I know I can live on a prayer, because I know who hears my prayer. God hears my prayer, and His love is so much deeper then the love any human could ever give me. "Take my hand, we'll make it I swear," when I hear that line, I picture God saying that to me. Although, I wonder if it would sound more like this, "take my hand we'll make it, I promise."

I want to live on a prayer. I want to put all my heart and soul into that prayer. I want to live happily "If we make it or not." I want to find someone to live on a prayer with. In my life I want to "hold on to what we got." I want to be satisfied with the life I live on this earth, no matter how brief a time it may be.

And, I challenge YOU. I challenge you to live on a prayer. I challenge you to put all your trust in the God who hears that prayer. I challenge you to hold on to what you got. I challenge you to be satisfied in your life. I challenge you.

Hehe, love that song. Bon Jovi is like the epitome of the 80s ;)

But, on a more serious note, the song does have a good message, and I'm glad it is one that you want to live by. I think all of us would be a lot better off if we did live by those words.

And...I will take you up on your challenge. I recently have found myself in a state of discontentment, and I know that it will take me nowhere. Here's to living on a prayer and living life for today and today only! :)

Bon Jovi is the epitome of awesome. Hahaha.

Good, glad to hear that you will be challenged! I hope that you will be able to move from the state of discontentment. Hmm, for some reason I feel like I need Samuel Adams in my right hand or some other "American" beer...oh well, to living for the better!
