6.6.2020 – “Nothing happens like you think…”

I came across this song, somehow… thought I’d share it here. 🎧🎵💖

I love how this artist writes about her struggles and battles, and then she remembers the truth. ☀️

“Not in Control”

by Madison Cunningham

“These troubles have got their hold on me
These paranoying thoughts don’t allow me any sleep
I ask myself, how and when did I get here?
When I looked down,
I must have allowed an entry way for my fears.
We’re not to dwell on the temporary
We’re not to dwell on momentary things,
So consuming
We’re not to trust in fickle feelings
But holding loosely to dreaming,
And earthly things
Nothing happens like you think… yeah
What’s behind and what’s ahead
Isn’t left to me
I’ve gotta loosen my grip
On what I thought life would be
Your knowledge far surpasses what I can see
All of my ill-judged solutions
Just prolong my misery
We’re not to live through memories
But moving on and pressing forward,
Forgetting what’s behind
We’re not to live through worry
But let peace fill the void of anxiety
Nothing happens like you think
We’re not in control.

We’re finite souls with an infinite creator
We weren’t meant to carry the world on these shoulders
We have such limited views,
When fear is our excuse
We try to find an easy way
But that’s not where we are meant to stay
Your knowledge far surpasses what we see
I’ve gotta loosen my grip
For what I thought life would be
Nothing happens like you think
Nothing happens like you think”
