09. Not As This World

by Tree63


Blinded by shining tears
Iíve walked out into fields just to find you
Thirsting for living water

Iíve struck the rock in anger just to remind you

Holy God you promised me your peace
And Iím still here holding on, please release me

Everything I want may not be what you want for me
Not as this world gives do you give
Iím starting to see
Release me

Five thousand miles from home
I come into my own - is this blessing?
Iíve found riches in my exile
Iím strongest when Iím fragile - you keep me guessing

Holy God Iím starving at your feast
Canít help feeling so unworthy - please release me


Behind the Song:
"This track is another with a very personal confessional lyric and an odd title. Itís based on something Annie Dillard said regarding Jesusí words in John 14:27: ďI do not give to you as the world gives.Ē God often gives us the opposite of what we ask Him. Eventually, we are able to look back and realize just how wisely and patiently He has dealt with us, and weíre amazed and thankful. Nevertheless, this is the song of an exasperated believer trying to figure it out." - John Ellis (Tree 63)
