Leaving It Up To You

This is a song I wrote Sunday; there have been several times where I have been inspired while in church. I guess that makes a lot of sense, huh? Believe it or not, this is one of the happier songs I've ever written. That's just how I work; when I get down, I write. I'm working on writing stuff when I'm in a good mood or having a great day, but that's still in progress.

Leaving It Up To You

Down in the depths
Of my own sorrow
Suffocating slowly
I am brought so low

I can't see the light
Hopelessness takes me
No desire to get up
Let the darkness have me

(chorus)
I can't do this anymore
God, You'll have to make me
Want to live, want to try
Take my hand and lift my soul
There's no more I can do
I'm leaving it up to you

I felt so alone
With no one to hold me
Tell me to keep going
This is temporary

I wanted so badly to quit
No more burdens to bear
But I turned to God
And this was my prayer

(chorus)
I can't do this anymore
God, You'll have to make me
Want to live, want to try
Take my hand and lift my soul
There's no more I can do
I'm leaving it up to you

Why do I wait so long
To let go of what holds me down
When You're waiting patiently
For Your grace to be found

I try so hard to fix it
I try to do it on my own
When I need to look to You
And hold on to You alone

What a relief to leave it up to You
God, I'm thankful You've made me
Want to live, want to try
You picked me up lovingly saying
There's no more for you to do
I'm taking it up for You

    Right on the money! Girl, your rawness is incredibly inspiring. Thank you for having the guts to be transparent. That takes faith. And droughts and valleys are only seasons. You usually learn and grow more and cling to Jesus more intimately during them anyway. So stand on Phil. 1:6, and keep trudging!

    I love you.
    For His glory,
    LEW
    Isa. 42:6
