Take Away

You give and take away

You give and take away

My heart will choose to say

Lord Blessed be Your name


For the longest time whenever I heard this song, I immediately thought that the “take away” part included things that I wanted to keep.  Like sacrificing in certain areas or having to give up certain things.  Yet, as I listened to the song a few weeks ago….it finally dawned on me that, no, the Lord can take away other things as well!  Things I WANT Him to take away including sickness, pain, feelings, desires, and so much more.  By taking away these things, He gives me so much more and replaces them with things even better than I can imagine.
