"KEEP IT FROM ME" AVAIL. MARCH 17
FULL ALBUM AVAILABLE MAY 2023
"Keep It From Me" is the third single off of my new album. Written for the person who is wrestling to understand why their plans are not turning out the way they had hoped. Why didn't they get the job they've been praying for? Why did the person they were certain they would marry suddenly choose a different path? Why does God allow things to happen that are opposite of our fervent prayers and desires?
There is a beautiful devotional by Lysa Terkeurst that speaks of the importance of being reduced to clay. Clay, which signifies our life, must be broken to dust to be rebuilt in the potter's hands. Too often we are certain that God needs to fulfill our prayers because we know what is best for us. It took me a long time to understand that sometimes, being kept from something is far more the answer to my prayers than actually getting the thing I thought I wanted most. My prayer instead became, "God, keep it from me. Keep me from that path that I've chosen if it's not on what you made for me."
We serve an incredible, wise and patient Father. A Father that knows our hearts and knows the plans he made to prosper us. Too often, we need to get out of the way. (Jeremiah 29:11)
