    “Thy Will Be Done”

    This whole time you were preparing and molding me
    This whole time you knew exactly what I would need
    And still I am learning that things ain’t always gonna go my way
    So I see that I should sit back, see your will, and obey

    This whole time while I was crying you rocked me to sleep
    And in my mind the hurt in the morning was easier to keep
    And I see no matter how much I mess up or play around
    You never left me like some of the people I thought would stay around

    This whole time while situations seemed to worsen by the hour
    You took the time to show me that things could be worse in my life
    I see now that I’ve been ungrateful for all that you’ve done
    And I’m ashamed cause I should’ve listened, saying “Thy will be done”

    Reflecting on the past I see now that I had it so good
    But I complained and you said “I need to show her what she should
    be grateful for and praise me for all that I’ve done in her life”
    Lord now I see the farther I ran, the farther your love was tried

    And for a minute I drew closer and closer to your name
    But still you said, “I have to test you; see if you love my name”
    I thought I was true, but the devil decided to invade my life
    Its funny how when I was on the devil’s side I seemed to have less strife

    But as I come closer and closer to knowing you love me for me
    He tries to hinder me with the doubts of my life and blind me
    And this whole time, you were preparing me for what’s to come
    And it ain’t over so I’ll just say “Oh Lord, Thy will be done”…

    That was so beautiful.
    I can understand where u're coming from.
    We all need to stop trying to fight his will,
    and let it be done.

    I really enjoyed the profundity of this piece. I guess because I've been there...May you will be done...truly freedom is found in being submissive to God.
