A good song….

Our Songwriting Teacher and Worship Leader Extraordinaire  Hanna Hobbs said in class the other day that a good song can make people feel like it was written for them…… now I understand that statement

Now just pause that thought for a second….

If you knew me back home you know I cry. a lot… about everything…. all the stinkin time….
If you know me now you know I can’t cry… hardly ever…. only for short bursts and I have to force myself.

So today in band we got to start working on our worship sets, we did a fun song written by 2 of the coolest girls I know then we started work-shopping Davids and  Andreas song… I hadn’t heard it yet because David is a terd and wanted to keep it a secret!
so I’m sitting there with Andrea and the band listening to the song when suddenly I felt  the tears come…. I had already been chosen to lead part of it so people were looking at me…. and I couldn’t escape it. I tried to but there was no stopping them.
 I turned to Andrea who was like “this is awkward” “why are we singing my song?” “can’t we do another?” and kinda blubbered that I felt it touched me so deeply, and how it was like they said everything I want to tell God but can’t get out. The melody and feel of the song could be Country or Indie so of course I jump on the country train for my verses then blend with Daven for the more indie feel when its her turn. I’ve been feeling at a loss for words and everything lately… I don’t know what to say to God while I’m praying anymore… I feel as if I’m just chillin in this haze of pain and decisions that I really can’t make, yet somehow knows that Gods arms are wrapped so tightly around me. I know he hasn’t left be but sometimes its hard when God is quiet. The times when he’s just being a loving parent and is quiet, letting me make decisions on my own and learn and grow from the circumstances I’m currently in. The pre Chorus and verse 2 are the parts that touch me so much. We have been talking about God promises and that there is no expiration date on them. The story of Sarah and Abraham always amazes me…. It really puts my situation in perspective….. when I get to be complaining about being 24 single with babymaker issues I just think about them, it shuts me right up!
Anyways  I’ll blog more about the song later and most likey post the performance in 6 weeks after we perform it, but until then you can read the lyrics…….

 VS 1
I stand here waiting
for you to show your face
I alk through the wilderness
in the shadow of your grace

Pre-Chorus
Father when you call me
I’ll be right where I belong
I will rest in your unfailing love
when it feels like your gone

Chorus
I will trust in your ways, oh God
I will worship you my God
and for all of my days, I will sing your praise
to lift your name on high

VS 2
Give light to my eyes
and freedom to my soul
Guife me and show me
what your promised long ago

Pre-Chorus

Father when you call me
I’ll be right where I belong
I will rest in your unfailing love
when it feels like your gone

Chorus
I will trust in your ways, oh God
I will worship you my God
and for all of my days, I will sing your praise
to lift your name on high

 Simple.
Beautiful.
The end
