11. Make A Way (Brittany's Song)

Relentless
by Natalie Grant



 

She was only 17
Wild at heart and following her dreams
Believing she was pretty
Got a ticket to the city
Where she'd find her place on the cover of a magazine

It was only a chat room, but it would lead the way
To the door of a man where she'd throw it all away
He said they'd take it slow
But little did she know
She'd be all used up by the end of the day

But she was strong
And she would survive
Ambition would be her drive
And she said...

I'll make a way
I'll do whatever it takes
Even though it won't be easy
I have a plan and though I may not understand
Someday, I'll make a way

Where did she go wrong, how did she get here?
Livin' hard and looking older than her years
Miss Little Big Town
Trying to hold a job down
Doing what she could to choke her fears

But she was strong
And she would survive
A spark of hope had kept her dream alive
And she cried...

I'll make a way
I'll do whatever it takes
Even though it won't be easy
I have a plan and though I may not understand
Someday, I'll make a way
Someday, I'll make a way

Walking down the road
In the city where she'd come with so much hope
Her vision had long died
Along with all her pride
And she found herself at the end of her rope

But she heard angels through the door
Of a church she'd passed a million times before
There was a song of heaven ringing
And soon she found herself believing
That out there maybe there was something more

So she bowed her head to pray
And said, Jesus, please make a way

And she heard Him say...

I'll make a way
I'll do whatever it takes
Even though it won't be easy
I have a plan and though you may not understand
Today, I'll make a way

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah
Today He'll make a way


(Natalie Grant)

Behind the Song:
"I have been a part of the “Revolve Tour”—a conference for girls 12-18 years old—for the past three years. It has been a life-changing experience for thousands of girls, and also for me. Brittany was a girl that stood out to me in particular. When she was 17, her parents allowed her to accept a modeling contract, moving her to New York City. Having no friends, she joined an online community and found herself in a chat room where she met a guy. They would eventually meet in person and he would steal her innocence. Life dealt her some hard blows, which in turn, hardened Brittany's heart. She was home for a break and her mother brought her to the “Revolve Tour,” where she heard me speak and sing. God transformed her life and now she is in college studying counseling, believing once again that she has a future. No matter what we've done or what has been done to us, there's no place that's too far. God will reach us wherever we are, and He always makes a way." - Natalie Grant
