Lay It Down


Today while at the gym this song "Lay it Down" came on my phones music player.
I hadnt heard it in years, and it brought back a flood of memories.
It brought me back to a time when this song spoke so much to me,
that it brought me to tears every time I heard it.
 And for a long time I couldn't even sing it without bursting into tears.
To me songs are powerful, and evoke so much emotion and meaning.
So as I was listening to this song for the first time in probably over 5 years,
(why it never played on my phone before when I have it on shuffle every day is beyond me!)
right there on the treadmill I had to urge to cry and at the same time bust out singing!

Fortunately I didn't! That probably would have been totally embarrassing! haha
But it did remind me of the recording I made of myself singing this song for Bruce while he was deployed to Iraq.
So I figured I would share.
Its very quiet and Im kinda goofy/awkward on video, because I was new to recording myself.
And well lets face it, Im just shy and awkward in general.

Anyways, Im linking this up to Rags to Stiches "Coffee Date Fridays" just because
I am kinda wanting to do a vlog soon, and want to know what you think I should vlog about?
I'd love to answer any questions you may have for me!
So if you have ideas, suggestions, or questions for me... Leave them in a comment below my dears!

Alright on with an OLD video of myself singing a great song:

And here are the lyrics for all you who like to know what Im sayin':
Lay It Down Lyrics
 I've been lookin' till my eyes are tired of lookin'
Listenin' till my ears are numb from listenin'
Prayin' till my knees are sore from kneelin' on the bedroom floor
I know that you know that my heart is achin'
I'm running out of tears and my will is breakin'
I don't think that I can carry the burden of it anymore
All of my hopes and my dreams and my best laid plans,
Are slowly slippin' through my folded hands

Chorus:
So I'm gonna lay it down
I'm gonna learn to trust You now
What else can I do
Everything I am depends on You
And if the sun don't come back up
I know Your love will be enough
I'm gonna let it be, I'm gonna let it go,
I'm gonna lay it down.

Verse:
I've been walkin' through this world like I'm barely livin'
Buried in the doubt of this hole I've been diggin'
But You're pullin' me out
I'm finally breathin' in the open air
This room may be dark but I'm finally seein'
There's a new ray of hope, and now I'm believin'
That the past is past, and the future's beginning to look brighter now
Oh, cause all of my hopes and my dreams and my best laid plans
Are safe and secure when I place them in Your hands

Chorus:
So I'm gonna lay it down
I'm gonna learn to trust You now
Oh what more can I do,
Cause everything I am depends on You
And if the sun don't come back up
You know Your love will be enough
I'm gonna let it be, I'm gonna let it go,
I'm gonna lay it down
I'm gonna lay it down
I'm gonna lay it down.

Much Love & Hugs,

  1. I don't think I've ever heard that song before - or if I had I wasn't really listening. I have to thank you for sharing today. I've been struggling the past couple of weeks with a lot of things life has thrown at me and I've forgotten that the best way to get through is to lay it all down and let God help us carry the burden. Reading those lyrics today and listening to you sing them brought tears to my eyes and brought me back to where I needed to be. Thank you so much.

    1. You are welcome. And thank YOU so much for sharing that with me. I can totally relate. That is why this song holds so much meaning for me. And I still get teary eyed when listening to it or reading the words. Its so true we tend to forget we just need to lay it down at the feet of God who will carry all our burden. I know for me I tend to want to hold it all in and think I can do all on my own. But truth is, I cant. This song is a beautiful reminder of that. :)
