The Reason by Lacey Sturm

I was so please this morning when I woke to find the book I had pre-ordered a month or so ago had downloaded to my phone.  I did intend to get up and walk this morning, but I found myself reading the first few pages and then getting so engrossed in the book, if I wasn’t supposed to be at work I would have stayed there and read the whole thing.

I’ve read and heard part of Lacey’s testimony before, which if you haven’t please take a moment to watch this youtube video.

I’m still only part way through, but I am thoroughly captivated by a story of young girl who hides in the darkness, who runs and hides in the shadows, turning away from God, but she also highlights the point we all need to know and that through it all God was with her in the darkness and the shadows, it’s well worth a read.

THE REASON by LACEY STURM
All my life
I’ve searched for something to satisfy the longing in my heart
And everytime, I come away emptier than before

And now I finally see the reason
‘Cause I was made to be yours alone
You formed my heart with your own hands
But I just could not understand
If I gave you my life
I’d be healed by your Grace
I was made for Your love
And gave others Your place

I spent my days giving my heart away to anything new
Only to ache from the poison of my temporary muse
And there were times I’d cry myself to sleep at night
Only to wake up wishing that I didn’t

And now I finally see the reason
‘Cause I was made to be yours alone
You formed my heart with your own hands
But I just could not understand
If I gave you my life
I’d be healed by your Grace
I was made for Your love
And gave others Your place

Thank you for never giving up on me
When I looked to everything else and lived so selfishly
You bled, you died to be with me
Why would you do something like that for someone like me?

And now I finally see the reason
‘Cause I was made to be yours alone
You formed my heart with your own hands
And now I finally understand
And I give you my life
And I’m healed by your grace
I was made for your love that no one can replace
This is it
I wont miss everything I am made for
To be yours
All yours
