  Artist List   /   Rebecca St. James   /   If I Had One Chance To Tell You Something


11. I Can Trust You

If I Had One Chance To Tell You Something
by Rebecca St. James


Yes, I know that You have paved a path for me
Yes, I know that You see what I do and dont need
But when it comes to the deepest things
I have a hard time relinquishing control
Letting go

God, it hurts to give You what I must lay down
But when I let go, freedoms found
God, it hurts to give You what Ive held so dear
Because of Your love its clear
I can trust You with this
I can trust You with me
I can trust You

Lord, I know that You are worthy of my trust
For You have shown me time and time again
Youre faithful and yet
Im so scared of letting go of this
Afraid of what You might do with it
How could I forget who You are like this

Me forsaking
Heart is breaking
I let go of what Ive held so tight
Freedoms mine now
For the taking
I move in faith, not by sight
Let Your will be done

Behind the Song:
This song came out of really wrestling with Godand some really personal gut wrenching pain. I had a certain aspect of my life that I really felt God calling me to give completely to Him. Theres been a few experiences in my life where I have felt God calling me to let gobut this particular time was just so hard. It was giving a dream to Him that was so deep within meyet He was saying Give this to me, and trust me with it, and I will take care of you, Rebecca. I feel that God (when we ask Him to) does give us the ability to let go in the times when its really impossible for us to do this on our own. One of the things God has called me to let go of and trust Him with is this whole singleness area of my life. A major dream for me has been to get married and have a familyso this song really challenges me. God called me to trust Him with my desire to be married. To say, Lord, if you have another purpose for me other than this desire that I have, I choose to trust you that you know whats best for my life. He gave me the ability to do this. This song really talks about the challenges of giving God the things closest to us.

Im so scared of letting go of this Afraid of what you might do with it How could I forget Who You are like this?

When were scared to give God the deepest things in our lives, its because we forget who He is. He, more than anyone else in the universe, will take care of us faithfully.

When I let gofreedoms found.

Thats what Ive really experienced in my life. When I have been challenged and given God the deepest areas of my heartthats where freedom has been found. And its beautiful. - Rebecca St. James
