Don’t Let Nobody Turn You Around

Over the last couple of days this song has been in my head…all day.  I’m sure I heard it as a child through my mother or at my elementary school; however, when I went on the Civil Rights Bus Tour a few years ago, a local Civil Rights demonstrator testified about singing this song: 

Ain't gonna let nobody turn me around
Turn me around, turn me around
Ain't gonna let nobody turn me around
I'm gonna keep on a-walkin', keep on a-talkin'
Marchin' down to freedom land

Now, this song was sung during the Civil Rights Movement, but I think it can apply in other areas of our lives.  Many times when we face challenges, we want to turn around and quit.  We want to give up with the going gets tough.  In fact, some people may even push your buttons in order to get you to give up.  You should not allow anyone or anything keep you from fulfilling your dreams and/or God’s plan for your life.  

Keep moving forward…there is greatness inside of you!!

If you are having difficulty on your job, don’t let a coworker or boss turn you around.

If you are having issues in your ministry, don’t let other church people turn you around.

If you are having problems in your marriage, hang in there…God can turn it around.

If you are having challenges in school, study more, don’t quit.

We all have challenges in our lives, but let’s agree to not give up and to let anybody turn us around.
