I Give Her To You

Related image

I wrote this one around the same time I wrote the one from yesterday. It’s when I gave up and gave her to God that is when things started to change. I felt at peace and God started to change Kim. It’s when I listened to God and let her go and gave her to Him.

Sometimes when your at your wit’s end and you keep trying to fix it yourself, you just need to stop and give it to God and let Him do the work.

In case you missed it, here is the post from yesterday:

It’s Not About You

I Give Her To You

Today I decided to quit

I gave you my heart

My words couldn’t get through

Now it’s time for Yours to start

Today I decided to pray

I know you can carry this boulder

I give it all to You to lead her

I give it to you to take off my shoulders

She’s left You, her family and friends

For something is leading her to sin

It’s her choice to make

It’s her soul at stake

Today, I give her to You

Today, I gave up

Today, I decided to walk away

Today, I decided to leave

Today, I heard You say stay

Today, I give her to You

You say be still and let Me speak

It’s not for you to understand

Today she will hear My words

Today she will grab My hand

You say You waited for me not to do it myself

You say You waited for me to let You in

When things are a mess I am the only one you need

You say only You can lead her from her sin

Today, she turned back to you

Today, she cried until she heard your voice

Today, she gave up and gave it to You

Today, when I gave up, she made her choice

It’s Not About You

A few years back, my wife and I went through a very difficult time. Through the many days and nights of fighting and lost sleep, nothing was changing.

In a moment of quietness, when I had all but given up, I heard God’s voice. It’s the only time I have ever heard God’s voice, at least so clearly.

I heard a voice say let her go. It startled me actually. It was so clear that I looked around the room to make sure I was alone. I, on the brink of giving up anyway, said that’s what I was going to do anyway. Then I heard the voice say, no, let her go to me. This isn’t about you.

I then wrote this.

Also, for those of you who don’t believe God can speak to us in this world today, when we were going through this a lady we barely knew at our church sent Kim an email. She said I don’t know what you are going through, but God told me to send this song to you. It was Need You Now by Plumb which was exactly what my wife, and I,  needed to hear.

Just remember when you are experiencing something terrible, maybe it’s not about you. Maybe God knows you are strong enough to take it and will use you to help someone else.

It’ Not About You

I didn’t want to be married

She wasn’t what I looked for

You had us cross paths

You brought her to my door

I asked You why and You said

It’s not about you, it’s about her

She will help you believe in me

Come to me, marry her and no other

Now I’m asking why, why, why

It’s not about you, it’s about her

I’m crying out why, why, why

You say bring her to me, her Father

I can’t believe she did this

She’s left the both of us

Is this what You wanted

How can I ever trust?

You whisper be strong

This is why you are here

To show My love for her

Be strong and do not fear

I need you to stay

It may seem unfair

But you will lead the way

This cross you must bear

She needs to see my love

She needs to know I’m her Father

She needs to find who she is in me

She needs to know she’s my daughter

But it’s made me question you

(trust in Me and know my ways are good)

It’s made me to never want to trust

(My ways are good, I will never harm you)

What do I do, where do I turn?

(turn to Me, I will always be there)

This isn’t about you

it’s all about her

It’s not about you

Your marriage will be stronger

Tonight Feels Different

The stars shine a different light

They seem to be a little more bright

These city streets always filled with noise

But tonight all I hear is your voice

I walk these streets, your hand in mine

It seems like I’ve done this a million times

But tonight feels different

Somehow the Dj seems to know

To play our song on the radio

I sing along, mostly out of tune

I sing our song to the moon

People look at me like I’ve lost my mind

They don’t know this love took me so long to find

That’s why tonight feels different

When we are apart

You take my heart

Its impossible to explain

How I feel when you call my name

My stomach is filled with butterflies

Every time I look in your eyes

But tonight feels different

You walk across the room and you shine so bright

It’s like  God gave you your very own spotlight

We dance, a little off beat

We kiss, your lips so sweet

We walk, hand in hand

I think I am a lucky man

 

I don’t know why but tonight feels different

Is tonight a long awaited answer to a prayer asked?

Is tonight a hope for the future, a forgetting of the past?

Is tonight a new beginning?

I don’t know but I can’t stop grinning

I can finally see you like God sees you

That’s enough to start our love anew

Tonight feels different

Thunder In My Heart

 

There is thunder in my heart

This is gonna leave a scar

There is lightning in my veins

Your lies drive me insane


 

My heart is turning to stone

I shake my head, I should’ve known

My blood is turning to ice

No more playing nice

You thought I would never leave

Your words I no longer believe

You thought you could use me and abuse

You ask me how can I accuse?

I’ve got proof I read your texts

You ask me to stay, there won’t be a next

I  read all  your email

You’ve already lost, you fail


 

Thunder rolled, a voice rumbled

A step back. I started to stumble

Electricity in the air

His words were there

“LET HER GO, GIVE HER TO ME”

The voice rumbled,  “JUST BELIEVE”

“I’m done,” said my heart of stone

I yelled back, “I’m better being alone”

“You are never alone,” the voice said

“I was  on the cross, For this I bled”

The thunder in my heart started to slow

The lightning in my veins  stopped its flow


 

God worked a miracle

The invisible became visible

He did something I couldn’t do

He can do the same for you

If there is thunder in your heart

You know where to start

If there is lightning in your veins

Through it all God’s love remains

Let Me See Her

 

My neck hurts from looking behind

A memory flashed and I lost my mind

I wasn’t here but in another time

Let me see

Let me see

Let me see her

It’s like I take one step forward and two steps back

I pray to God to let me move but I sit here while the devil attacks

I’ve been here so many times I think I’ve lost track

Let me see

Let me see

Let me see her

I know God that she’s your daughter

Let me see her like You do

I know in your hands you got her

Let me see her like you do

I know what she did , that’s not her

Let me see her like you do

It’s crazy how life got in the way

We grew apart until that fateful day

That’s the day she decided not to pray

Let me see

Let me see

Let me see her

Oh God let me forget, I just wanna forget

Maybe the lesson to be learned hasn’t happened yet

Her sins are forgiven , You paid that debt

Let me see

Let me see

Let me see her

I know God that she’s your daughter

Let me see her like You do

I know in your hands you got her

Let me see her like you do

I know what she did , that’s not her

Let me see her like you do

Oh God I’m tired of being angry

Oh God I know this person isn’t me

Oh God help me to see, help me to see

Oh God Help me to forgive

Oh God I just want to live

Oh God to Your will let me submit

Let me see

Let me see

Let me see her

Let me see her God like you do

Let me see her God like you do

Thank You For Staying

I know it hasn’t been easy

Being married to me

I take two steps forward and three steps back

Tell you how much you mean to me then I attack

The voices in my head won’t go away

Some days I want to run and others days I want to stay

Through it all I want to say thank you for staying

The words I say I know are not nice

I’ve said I would stop more than twice

You deserve better than me

I have to be honest I can’t see

Why you have chosen to stay

I just wanted to thank you today

Thank you for staying

I know you need more conversation

I know I really should show more appreciaton

You are the sun that shines so bright

That will burn off this fog that consumes my nights

I know part of God must live in you

To stay through all the hell I put you through

I know it’s not easy but I wanted to say thank you for staying

I know these times are rough

You have proven you are more than tough

Where you get your strength from God only knows

Somehow your love only seems to grow

I would be an empty shell of a man

If you ever said I never want to see you again

I just wanted you to hear me say thank you for staying
