11. Surrender

BarlowGirl
by BarlowGirl



 

My hands hold safely to my dreams
Clutching tightly not one has fallen
So many years Iíve shaped each one
Reflecting my heart showing who I am
Now Youíre asking me to show
What Iím holding Oh so tightly
Canít open my hands canít let go
Does it matter?
Should I show You?
Canít You let me go?

Surrender, Surrender You whisper gently
You say I will be free
I know but canít You see?
My dreams are me, My dreams are me

You say You have a plan for me
And that You want the best for my life
Told me the world had yet to see
What You can do with one
Thatís committed to Your calling
I know of course what I should do
That I canít hold these dreams forever
If I give them now to You
Will You take them away forever?
Or can I dream again?

Behind the Song:
"Actually, 'Surrender' was my life story. It was from my journal, when God had seemingly taken all my dreams away from me. That was the time in my life where I didnít know if God was going to give me anything back. It felt like He took my dreams and He was going to forget about meóthatís what I honestly thought. The song is a cry to God, 'I donít know what you have for me.' But all I heard Him say was, 'Surrender. I promise Iíll take care of you.' If thereís anything people can hear from this song, it is that I am a testimony of God asking me to surrender my dreams so He could bless me with something better. And I am so excited about where He has me. I know this isnít the end. Itís just the beginning of what Heís going to do." - Alyssa Barlow (BarlowGirl)
