03. Out of My Hands

Learning to Lose
by The Turning


All my restless heart could do is cry
I stepped on out into the night
The tides turned again and nothing felt right
I searched for truth I sought your light
and all my restless heart could do is cry

Everything I held is out of my hands
Everything you bless is not what I’d planned
Not what I’d seen, not what I’d dreamed

My hearts hope will rise and fall with the wind
A gentle breeze will blow me over again
I’m walking unstable

And all the things I held
Were dragging my heart so far down
And the things I’d dreamed were nothing, Nothing as they’d seemed
And then I question you
And doubt you as the God I know
But all over again, you saved me from myself

By Jacob McGinnis,Matt Warren and Nathan Stephens

Behind the Song:
“’Out of My Hands’ started out of a feeling instead of a story. Driving home from the music store one day, I felt as though God’s hand wasn’t on the dreams that the band had invested so much into. I remember feeling exactly as the lyric in the song says; “my heart’s hope will rise and fall with the wind. A gentle breeze will blow me over again.” The smallest thing could throw me into a state of depression and hopelessness. God laid it upon my heart that the things that are our dreams aren’t always the same as the dreams that He has for our lives. A “turning” occurred driving home from work that day, and my heart began to seek out what God would have for our band.” - Jacob McGinnis (The Turning)
