Song Story:  THE COUNTRY MUSIC inspiration amuses me after years of saying "I don't like country."  But in fact I've learned to cherish many music styles and, with God's creative help, to incorporate them into songs that are, admittedly, rather weird for me!

Song Story:  THE LYRICS:
As I played this song to verify the lyrics against the audio file, one of my daughters was listening.  She muttered under her breath,  “Oh….. no!”   

I laughed and reassured her that this is just a “general” song about children’s personalities…. not about her.  

Or, perhaps more truthfully, no one would know *which* of  all my daughters I was really thinking of as I wrote this Song!
      My daughter’s adamant stubbornness probably saved her.  
After a horrendous car accident with many many broken bones, doctors were not reassuring that she'd easily walk again.   Yet my daughter’s stubbornness led her to “rebel” against the doctor’s predictions and determinedly work out with the physical therapist despite excruciating pain and discouraging weaknesses.  Now she hikes mountains and slams volleyballs.....

    Being stubborn FOR God, FOR what is right,  is  *not*  to be avoided.  Persistence is described  by Jesus in the story of the widow who kept coming to the judge in the middle of the night to get justice…. Luke 18.  “Stand Fast”,  Jesus repeatedly said.  It will save your life.  The life that counts.
Dedicated to God,  Who helps us Stand Fast (Galatians 5:1)... when we ask.

Song Lyrics: 
My daughter had a MIND of her own.
And once she made her her BABY mind up,
She was not to be moved by the things of this world.
Her Grandma said:   “MY, SHE'S RIGHT STUBBORN.”
My daughter had a MIND of her own.
And once she maser her TODDLER   mind up,
She was not to be moved by the things of this world.
Her teachers said:   “MY,  SHE'S RIGHT STUBBORN.”
My daughter had a MIND of her own.
And once she made  her TEENAGE mind up,
She talked with friends and chose   what she'd do   in this world.
Her Grand-Daddy  said:  
SPOKEN:    “I PRAYED that you'd get a child just like you!   
         THANK YOU,  GOD!”
Have you ever wondered why God tells us over and over,
“Stand fast!  Be RIGHT Stubborn!   Don't choose the things of this World!”
”Stand FAST in the liberty where Christ has made you free.
Don't get trapped in worldly things --  First Corinthians 16, verse 13

Do not love the world or the things of this world:
First John Chapter 2, verse 15. [repeat]
For all in the world, the lust in the eyes, the pride of Life is NOT of God,
God warns us:    First John Chapter 2, verse 16.

First Corinthians 16: 13 ---- Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.
Philippians 1:27  “...Let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ... stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel, and not in any way terrified by your adversaries, which is to them a proof of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that from God.”
