It Was You

Have you ever read a really good book and been totally blown away by the ending?  I picture our lives like this. We’re in the middle of the book after the first few chapters and have way more questions than answers; the plot thickens and characters take on personalities.  Conflicts arise. Single chapters of a book are like events in our life. At the end of a chapter, nothing makes sense.  I’m usually emotionally troubled at the end of the chapter. …maybe because I’m only seeing one chapter of a very BIG book?  I don’t always get it, but I read on…wanting resolution. I know it sounds trite and “cliche-ish” to say “in heaven we will understand the unjust, life-changing situations that break our hearts here”, but that is the hope we have…that there is something I am misunderstanding; that resolution will happen; that justice and truth will prevail!  So the lyrics for this song came from thinking about what it will be like to be enlightened to the truth that God was there all along.

Like reading a great storybook ending

The crazy twist I couldn’t see

Now I know that’s how you work

Silent and patient behind the scenes

Chrorus

It was you all along

Clearing the path I’m walking on

It was you every time

who sent packages of hope for me to find

It was you.

As this book closes, I’m crying

I misread every sign

You were the one giving selflessly

Weaving your perfect heart to mine

Chorus

It was you all along

Clearing the path I’m walking on

It was you every time

Who sent packages of hope for me to find

It was you
