Stumbling Block or Stepping Stone
A song by Carol Crain (Larry Steve Crain's wife)
May the hurts and disappointments of my life
Be a stumbling block or a stepping stone?
Will I allow them to cause bitterness and strife
Or will I let them strengthen me as I walk on?
It's up to me what I let God do in my life...
The choice is mine - to win or lose, to be
stable or confused.
The trials I've had in days gone by
Can make me quit - or determined to try.
Lord, with your help, I'll let them be
a stepping stone.
