AA Chorus, by DianaDee Osborne

ALBUM:      Amazing Holy Spirit 'n' Church

Song Story:  I confess:  I was really "miffed", shall we say?, one day.  Yes, we should "speak the truth in love" (Ephesians 4:15), but we also SUPPORT each other through 'stuff.  And even if someone else's 'stuff' isn't ours, we have our own needs to seek God's forgiveness.
       The "AA" in the song title is not just the usual meaning... it's "ANY Addiction Chorus" -- including addictions to gossiping, envy, materialism, and even Workaholism (story of Martha in John 11).  So one day when I was listening to people gossip, I remembered this sight:

On 10 Sept 2010, I was in Amish country watching a team of 
8 mules work together pulling a huge plow.  
God brought to my mind the encouraging supportive verses Ecclesiastes 4: 9-12 about holding each other up.  Within a couple of hours, I had written this song, with the Holy Spirit's empowering answer to my prayers for help.
As you listen, you can hear the anger that I felt as I wrote.... 
anger at the injustice that we ALL should feel (as God does) 
when we people become critical rather than supporting others 
who are fighting addictions of ANY kind. 
Including addictions to gossip and criticizing.  --ddo

Song Lyrics: 
Pray and ask God to please send
you someone to help you when
you just can't quite fight that sin on your own.
Ecclesiastes FOUR verse 9:  God loves you;  He's ON your side.
Don't delay.... just say:
     God send me to help SOME-one, and 
         God send someone to help me, please.
     Your Own Word tells me, God, that YOU WILL:
Ecclesiastes 4:  verses 9 to 12..... God says:

CHORUS   1   
Two are better than one. 
Two help fight hard temptations.  When
one is knocked down, the other picks him up. 
Ecclesiastes Four, Verse 12.      
CHORUS   2   
Two are better than one.  With
God you are NEVER ALONE.   He'll
help you to fight “IT”.  Just ask Him for help.  James                
Four Verse eight:  God will come help if you ASK. 
   Two are better than one:     God    
   created His church to help you.  Give           
   each other LOVE....
                  and pray for each other:    
   Hebrews 10 Verse 25.    Reflect God.     

James 4:8 =  Draw Near to God, and He will draw near to you. (6 = God gives us grace to STAND AGAINST any wrong desires.... God always helps humble people.)
Hebrews 10: 25 = “Go to church.” (God designed Church for us to SUPPORT each other.)
