God Gave Me You

Trisha & I are reading the book "Love & War" by the John & Stasy Eldridge and working through it with our life group. It's been a great conversation starter and tonight was our first week. We just laughed and laughed even as we shared about the difficulty of life together. Who knew it'd be this hard to get what we want?

Anyway, I want a great marriage! Which means, I have a lot of growing up to do and a lot of changes to make in order to be the kind of guy who can say, "As you wish" to my princess "Trishacup."

This song by Dave Barnes is my little reminder of how glad I am to have Trisha in my life and how much I want to be with her for many, many years from now. So thanks Lord for who you gave me!

God Gave Me You by Dave Barnes
I’ve been a walking heartache
I’ve made a mess of me
The person that I’ve been lately
Ain’t who I wanna be

But you stay here right beside me
Watch as the storm goes through
And I need you

God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
For when I think I’ve lost my way
*If* There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you

There’s more here than what were seeing
A divine conspiracy
That you, an angel lovely
Could somehow fall for me
You’ll always be love’s great martyr
Ill be the flattered fool
and I need you

God gave me you for the ups and downs

God gave me you for the days of doubt
For when I think I’ve lost my way
*If* There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you

On my own I’m only
Half of what I could be
I can’t do without you
We are stitched together
And what love has tethered
I pray we never undo

God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
For when I think I’ve lost my way
*If* There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you, gave me you.
Gave me you.
