Now that’s the story of my life:

(sorry, no embed code)

I’m to the point where it don’t add up
I can’t say I’ve come this far with my guitar on pure dumb luck
That’s not to say I know it all
Cause everytime I get too high up on my horse I fall

Cause I’ve got
Somethin’ lifting me up
Somethin’ holding me down
Somethin’ to give me wings and keep my feet on the ground
I’ve got all I need
Jesus and gravity

But I’m as bad as anyone
Taking all these blessings in my life for granted one by one
When I start to thinkin’ it’s all me
Well somethin’ comes along and knocks me right back on my knees
And I’ve got…

Somethin’ lifting me up
Somethin’ holding me down
Somethin’ to give me wings and keep my feet on the ground
I’ve got all I need, Jesus and gravity

He’s my friend
He’s my light
He’s my wings
He’s my flight

I’ve got somethin’ lifting me up
Somethin’ holding me down
Somethin’ to give me wings and
Somethin’ to keep my feet on the ground
I’ve got all I’m gonna need
I got Jesus, I got Jesus,

I got somethin’ lifting me up
Somethin’ holding me down
Somethin’ to give me wings and keep my feet on the ground
I’ve got all I’ll ever need
Cause I got Jesus and gravity

I got somethin’ lifting me up
Somethin’ holding me down
Somethin’ to give me wings and keep my feet on the ground
I’ve got all I’ll need
Cause I’ve got Jesus and gravity
Jesus, I’ve got Jesus, I’ve got Jesus
He’s my everything
He lifts me up
He gives me wings
He gives me hope
And He gives me strength
And that’s all I’ll ever need

As long as He keeps lifting me up
He is my life
He is my God
He is my wings
He is my flight
Lift me
I’ve got Jesus, I’ve got Jesus
And that’s all I need

  1. Hi Guys, tell me please, I am now in Greece, and my parents are in Warsaw how to make so we could talk with regular phone, but cheaper than it’s now? I found just such a story, maybe someone has used a similar service, or heard of him? Tell me please is it real?

    Sometimes the problem of the extension of sales is getting almost crucial for each companionship.
    Occasionally it happens that enterprise provides amazing service, it has well organized customer support, but, unfortunately, most of nearest cities already have bought your wares and sales decreases dramatically.
    Now and again this situation becomes a reason of the crash of really good firms.
    Is there any way to recover from this kind of situation with interest?

    It is possible to expand marketing department which can lightly augment recurrent sales.
    There is also a chance to invest into the promotional material. And this is very important section of the costs and income.
    Beside this there is an option to obtain an office space in surrounding cities or even countries and start to extend instead of crashing.

    But it is also not that easy as we wish it to be. Office in the surrounding city is expensive. And there are additional expenses for the recruitment and training of the new assistants.

    There is simple escape from such problem that is described below.

    Read the story and get the idea of it.

    There was a small factory in the poky hole of a place, that manufactured doors.
    At the start everything was just great: talented employees were recruited, that did not demand huge payment, and the quality of the wares was truly great. The rope yard had many orders, number of which even exceeded productive capacity of the factory.

    Possessors of the firm had decided that it would be like this for a long time, so they made a loan in order to obtain additional production space. It has became even better, but suddenly in about half of year, the income decreased.
    Just decreased – and that was it.
    How could it happen? Why could it happened? Where were the orders?

    But what did the factory do?
    In the beginning they had two sale persons that answered the phone and transferred the orders to the rope yard.
    Later on in conditions of the crisis company has recruited business agents as they thought that the orders were more important then the rest.
    The resellers started to visit house holders and companies and to offer the production of the company. The firm even has payed for the advertisement, but all together increased sales just for 20 percent which were not enough even to cover loan. Because there was no market anymore – the whole city has purchased their goods and the firm had no one left to buy their goods.

    Somehow firm has been stretching out for a half of year more. They replaced everything they could with their goods. They had full monopoly, but not the sales.
    In conditions of shutdown, employees started to retire.

    Possessors decided to vend the company, as it was better to sell it now and to get back at least part of the money.
    They published advertisement in newspapers and magazines about selling and even invited few clients to take a look at the manufacture.
    But as there was not market for their goods they did not succeed.
    They attempted to publish commercial in nearby cities, but local citizens did not want to buy goods from outsiders.
    Just in the central city of the region there was normal level of sales, but to purchase office space there was not possible because of the shortage of the money.
    Another problem was that the potential purchasers did not want to dial inter-city numbers and to pay for roaming as well as to go to another city to buy anything.

    Time passed by and formerly the most successful factory in the area was dying.

    And then the nephew came to visit the holder of the business. He came to have fun and to take some relaxation. As all people of his age, he really loved to wave Internet, and the first thing he asked about was the possibility to find social network. It turned out that the hosts almost did not use the Internet, so the poor guy had to wave Internet from his mobile device.
    As the guy already has visited the factory around a year ago and liked it a lot – he asked for the chance to take a look at the production once again. But unexpectedly he received hard breakdown. The guy was impudent and airy, so he decided to bring to light what had happened.
    And went to the factory by himself. That evening there was a guard who remembered that the nephew was allowed to go into the plant without additional permission of the proprietors. Therefore he entered the plant without any problem.

    The nephew came back home in shock and straight started to ask questions: “How could it happened?” e.t.c.
    Like the result he was told the truth.
    The youngster got sad and asked for the possibility to communicate with the sales office..
    Owner decided not to snap and gave to his relative such possibility:
    – Do whatever you want, and if you need some help – let me know.

    The nephew pondered for a while and offered to buy brunch in the capital as it is best place for sales with serious market. And after he was explained that there is some shortage of money, he had to implement creative way of thinking.

    As usual in such cases he started to wave Google to find the answer.
    As it was expected Google was some help. In a few minutes of the waving the link to the site that sells telephone numbers anywhere in the world was found. It was a savior!
    It turned out, that it is real not to rent office space in the capital but to obtain the number of the city needed. And just to pretend your presence there. Local clients will dial local number and like the result to be connected with the sale deportment that is located thousands and thousands miles away.
    This kind of a phone number costs nothing in comparison with the price for office rent or purchase, but it is as effective as office. All incoming calls forwards to the number needed, and therefore there is no need to recruit additional employees and to through away money for the office space.

    The firm decided to try this innovation. The free test of the number was ordered. The connection turned out to be just great – clear and distinct, with no creaks and lags. The virtual number was bought for one month. And suddenly they got amazing result. There were so many orders that they had to invite back all the employees and to add second line of production.

    Just in one year proprietors covered all their loans and even organized additional business. And the keys to the success were direct numbers and virtual office.
