I'm Still Yours

Last night, my friend Mary and I went to see New Moon. I was really sad because my sister Mary and her family left yesterday. I just really wanted to see Jacob Black and have him cheer me up. It didn't work as much as a song that she had me listen to. A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine uploaded the new Kutless CD "It Is Well" to my ipod, but I haven't had a chance to listen to the entire CD. Well...the last song is AMAZING! It reminds me of the songs "Bring the Rain" by Mercy Me, "Bring It On" by Steven Curtis Chapman, and "Praise You in the Storm" by Casting Crowns. It's called "I'm Still Yours." It's the last song on the CD.

As I sat there listening to the song, I realized I wanted this song to be my song of the year for 2010. I have been making some changes to step out of my comfort zone....both at church and personally. At church, I volunteered to step in as a sub teacher for the pre-school class. This is a very rough class at my church...even though there are only 2 kids most of the time. They are cousins and very active. The first week I taught, I had to put one of the kids in the corner. I felt bad, until I talked to the regular teacher who told me she's in the corner every week. LOL!!! :)

Anyway, personally I'm stepping out of my comfort zone by changing jobs. I was recently hired to work at KDMC. When I told my boss, he offered me more money (didn't give me an amount), but I told him the easy thing for me to do is stay here, but I felt God was leading me to move out of my comfort zone and rely on Him to lead me in this direction. This is exciting and a little scary for me. I know God is in this move and I'm thankful that I listen to His leading. But this song really is a good reminder to praise Him even with life gets really rough.

The words are below the video I'm posting of the song. The video is just a picture...so you don't have to keep watching it just read the words while it plays.





If you washed away my vanity
If you took away my words
If all my world was swept away
Would you be enough for me
Would my beating heart still sing

If I lost it all
Would my hands stay lifted
To the God who gives
And takes away
If you take it all
This life You've given
Still my heart will sing to You

When my life is not what I expected
The plans I made have failed
When there's nothing left to steel me away
Will You be enough for me
Will my broken heart still sing

If I lost it all
Would my hands stay lifted
To the God who gives
And takes away
If you take it all
This life You've given
Still my heart will sing to You

Even if you take it all away
You never let me go
And take it all away
Will I still know
That I'm Yours
I'm still Yours
I'm Yours
I'm still Yours


I'm still Yours
