Lay It Down

I’ve been looking ‘til my eyes are tired of looking
Listening ‘til my ears are numb from listening
Praying ‘til my knees are sore from kneeling
On the bedroom floor

I know that You know that my heart is aching
I’m running out of tears and my will is breaking
I don’t think that I can carry
The burden of it anymore

 

All of my hopes and my dreams and my best laid plans
Are slowly slipping through my folded hands

 

So I’m gonna lay it down
I’m gonna learn to trust You now
What else can I do
Everything I am depends on You

And if the sun don’t come back up
I know Your love will be enough
I’m gonna let it be, I’m gonna let it go
I’m gonna lay it down

 

[Jaci Velasquez]

  1. its kind of an expansion on the ‘revelation’ post… maybe i’m laying down someONE… knowing that even if I never get to take it (him) back up again, God is enough.
