peace might be another world away

You scattered some monsters from beneath my bed, 
You watched my team win, 
You watched my team lose, 
You watched when my bicycle went down again,
and I said “Elbow healer, Superhero,
come if You can,” and You said “I am”

You saw my mistakes, You watched my heart break 
Heard when I swore I’d never love again
and I said “Heart-ache Healer, Secret-keeper,
be my Best Friend” and You said “I am”
nichole nordeman - i am 

haha one of my fav songs of all time

i dont think we can ever plan our lives, no, i dont think so anymore.
the times of my team winning or my team losing,
the times of heartbreak
these times seem so far away in a mythical land
there is only the neverending continuous shifts that blend into day and night

~
Send some rain, would You send some rain?
'Cause the earth is dry and needs to drink again
And the sun is high and we are sinking in the shade

Would You send a cloud, thunder long and loud?
Let the sky grow black and send some mercy down
Surely You can see that we are thirsty and afraid

But maybe not, not today
Maybe You'll provide in other ways
And if that's the case

We'll give thanks to You with gratitude
For lessons learned in how to thirst for You
How to bless the very sun that warms our face
If You never send us rain

We'll give thanks to You with gratitude
A lesson learned to hunger after You
That a starry sky offers a better view
If no roof is overhead
And if we never taste that bread

Oh, the differences that often are between
Everything we want and what we really need

So grant us peace, Jesus, grant us peace
Or maybe not, not today
Peace might be another world away
And if that's the case

We'll give thanks to You with gratitude
For lessons learned in how to trust in You
That we are blessed beyond what we could ever dream
In abundance or in need

And if You never grant us peace
But, Jesus, would You please
~

We'll give thanks to you with gratitude/ that we are blessed beyond what we could ever dream
