01. Write Your Story

If We're Honest
by Francesca Battistelli



 

They say / Youíre the King of everything / The one who taught the wind to sing / The source of the rhythm my heart keeps beating / They say / You can give the blind their sight / And You can bring the dead to life / You can be the hope my soulís been seekiní // I wanna tell You now that I believe it / I wanna tell You now that I believe it / I do, that You can make me new, oh // CHORUS: Iím an empty page /Iím an open book / Write Your story on my heart / Come on and make Your mark / Author of my hope / Maker of the stars / Let me be Your work of art / Wonít You write Your story on my heart // Write Your story, write Your story / Come on and write Your story, write Your story / Wonít You write Your story on my heart // My life / I know itís never really been mine / So do with it whatever You like / I donít know what Your plan is / But I know itís good, yeah // I wanna tell You now that Iím believing / I wanna tell You now that Iím believing in You / In You, so do what You do, oh // CHORUS // Write Your story, write Your story / Come on and write Your story, write Your story / Wonít You write Your story on my heart // I want my history / To be Your legacy / Go ahead and show this world / What Youíve done in me / And when the music fades / I want my life to say // I let You write your story, write Your story / Write Your story, write Your story // CHORUS // Write Your story, write Your story / Come on and write Your story, write Your story / Wonít You write Your story on my heart

(Francesca Battistelli / David Arthur Garcia / Ben Glover)

Behind the Song:
Write your story is a song about being a blank slate and letting your life be open to whatever story God wants to write. I think for so many of us it's easy to feel like we have to come up with this great plan for how we're going to use the gifts God gives us for Him, but I really feel like He just wants our willingness to be used however He sees fit. Iíve always tried to live my life with an open hand, trusting God to take me where He wants to go. Hopefully this song encourages others to hand God the pen of their lives. - Francesca Battistelli
