I don’t have to be perfect

2 Corinthians 12:8-10 (NIV)

Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

The God I Know

Oh-oh-ohhh
Oh-oh-ohhh

If it was all about religion
What to do, what to say
What to wear on a Sunday

All about perfection
Black and white, wrong or right, never grey
Well, I’d never make it
I’d never be good enough (Oh-oh-ohhh)

I try to walk the line, pray that I’d find
Something that I knew was real
Began to realize, the harder I tried
The colder I’d start to feel
Until the moment, the second I met Your Love (Oh-oh-ohhh)

And then I threw my hands up, worries down
I remember when He showed me how
To break up with my doubt
Once I was lost, but now I’m found
No strings attached, when He saved my soul
I want you to know, the God I know
Oh, you gotta know, oh, the God I know

He is more than just a rescue
That’s where it starts
Not where it ends, let freedom in
More than just a story, in the sky, wearing white
He’s alive, in every moment
And now that I know this Love
(Oh-oh-ohhh)

I can throw my hands up, worries down
I remember when He showed me how
To break up, with my doubt
Once I was lost, but now I’m found
No strings attached, when He saved my soul
I want you to know, the God I know
Oh, you gotta know, oh, the God I know

What was I waiting for
I came alive when I let go
All I had was a broken heart
Then He held me in His arms

I can throw my hands up, worries down
I remember when He showed me how
To break up, with my doubt
Once I was lost, but now I’m found
No strings attached, when He saved my soul
I want you to know, the God I know
Oh, you gotta know, oh, the God I know

What was I waiting for
I came alive when I let go
All I had was a broken heart
Then He held me in His arms

What was I waiting for
I came alive when I let go
All I had was a broken heart
Then He held me in His arms
Oh-oh-ohhh, oh-oh-ohhh, oh-oh-ohhh
