God Gave Me You

27 Feb

Music is something that speaks to me. It always has and always will. I’ve noticed, that more and more as I get older, I can listen to songs that I’ve heard before, then one day the meaning to them suddenly changes. It’s like I stop and fully listen to the words, and for the first time, the meaning of the song is different than before.

Lately, that has really been the case. I’ve been going through a somewhat, slightly difficult season. I know full well that there are so many people in much harder situations, I completely understand and respect that, which is why mine is really only slightly difficult. Anyway, I don’t want to go into a lot of details.

So the other night I stayed home from church. I was exhausted, tired, and just worn down from the days beforehand. Later that evening when getting ready for bed, I listened to the song “God Gave Me You” by Dave Barnes. This song I’ve heard at least a hundred times suddenly pierced my heart with the lyrics. 

“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

And watch as the storm blows through

And I need you

Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs

God gave me you for the days of doubt

And for when I think I lost my way

There are no words here left to say, it’s true

God gave me you

Gave me you..”

I realized right then and there that this song, the one I’ve heard so many times, was absolutely about Houston. 

I said in my last post “Weakness” that he has been such a shoulder to cry on and how he has definitely been the strong one. I was brought to tears as the words of this song resignated my heart. After listening to it I thanked him for standing right beside me and watching as this storm blew through, he said “Well, I hope I’m not just standing there, I hope I’m holding your hand through it..” 

And he is. He’s holding my hand through it and goodness I’m so thankful. 


Always my shoulder to cry on…❤️

I don’t think I could be more blessed. How awesome is it that God gives us people in our lives to help carry us through difficult seasons?! Whether it’s a spouse, family, friends, or all three, God gives us exactly who we need. 

I’m so glad that God gave me you.

God gave me each and every one of you.

Thank You Jesus for blessing me far more than I deserve.  You are so good to me! ❤️
