God Doesn't Need Me, But...

I really enjoy the band, Tenth Avenue North. The more that I discover their work, the more I am impressed with their depth and their strange sense of humor. Their recent album, The Things We've Been Afraid to Say, tackles some heavy subjects that are worth exploring. Take the time and check it out.

This morning, I was up early and listening so music as I was drinking coffee. I came across a song by Tenth Avenue North that I really like. I am not sure why I like it, but it may have to do because it hits a tender area in my life.

Most of my co-workers know that I do like things organized and clean. I joke with them that this is a "control" issue, and it really is. I like to control my environment and the situations that I find myself in. I really enjoy "check lists" and ticking things off as I accomplish things.

However, I cannot control my relationship with God. I cannot earn God's love. God wants me! He pursues me! He does not need me to do anything for Him and that understanding brings freedom and peace.

Enjoy the following videos and remember that God doesn't need you but He wants you?





Here I am, all my intentions

All my obsessions, I wanna lay them all down

In Your hands, only Your love is vital

Though I’m not entitled

Still You call me Your child

God, You don’t need me, but somehow You want me

Oh, how You love me, somehow that frees me

To take my hands off of my life and the way it should go

Oh, God, You don’t need me, but somehow You want me

Oh, how You love me, somehow that frees me

To open my hands up and give You control

I give You control

I’ve had plans shattered and broken

Things I have hoped in, fall through my hands

You have plans to redeem and restore me

You’re behind and before me

Oh, help me believe

You want me

Somehow You want me

The King of Heaven wants me

So this world has lost its grip on me

Oh, give You control

Oh, I want to give You control

I give You control
