A pregnant woman lays passed out in a dope house. An unborn child who doesn't know of religion dies inside of a woman raised as a christian. The moral of the story, a child is never born because her mother had an addiction. So tell me, was this part of the plan, or was this just a little girl who wasn't given a fair hand? Would you lose faith with your child's blood stains on your hands, or would you take comfort in knowing it's all part of the plan? Isn't this what they teach at your church? God has a plan for us...yeah it's funny how the world works.

Now picture this; A young boy is gunned down in front of his church. An old woman falls to her knees, with blood stains on her skirt. Pressure builds, and the shooter caves in. He's questioned at the station. Turns out he hit the wrong kid. The last thing he saw looking up from the floor, was his best friend...not knowing that's who the bullet was meant for. The old woman remembers words taught at her church. “God has a plan for us”. It's funny how the world works.
