Learning How To Bend

I'm still learning how to pray
Trying hard not to stray
Try to see things your way
I'm still learning how to pray
I'm still learning how to trust
It's so hard to open up
And I'd do anything for us
I'm still learning how to trust

I'm still learning how to bend
How to let you in
In a world full of tears
We'll conquer all our fears
I'm still learning how to fly
I wanna take you higher
I'll be there till the end
I'll be your lover and your friend
I'm still learning how to bend

I'm just trying to understand
It's all in someone else's hands
There's always been a bigger plan
But I don't need to understand

OK, so I don't necessarily understand the "learning how to bend" part of the lyrics but I have been in love with this song since it came out. Yes, it is a COUNTRY song, and its sung by Gary Allan.

I love that I am constantly reminded how good God is. Whether it be hanging out with people and having good conversations, or listening to a song that has thought provoking lyrics.

This song always makes me think. I get so frustrated with God sometimes. I don't understand why He does the things He does. Why He puts people in your life and rips them away. Why He makes us learn the hard way sometimes. But, God does so many great things too. And everytime I hear that last verse I am reminded that I don't need to know why God does what He does. I need to be content in Him and TRUST God. I need to be able to comprehend that God does have a bigger plan.

I love knowing that truth. And of course, I always need the little reminders when I forget!

God is SOOO Good! :)
