“You Do Love Me” by Free and Fearless (A.K.A. My Daughter)

Katlyn came to me earlier this afternoon and said the Lord gave her another full song. Within 15 minutes she had it written out and a quick recording on my phone so she wouldn’t forget it. I’m in love with her relationship with Him and I’m totally blown away by her gift. This is the second song that has come to her in this way (though she’s written several songs over the years that I’m certain came from this same gift she has). She wants her songs to be a blessing to anyone who it might touch, so I’m sharing them before they’re in their finished product. ❤

Lyrics:
I’m alone, I’m on my own,
with nothing left, I regret.
They cast me away, and they say,
“No on will love you, now get!”

I run away, from all my fears,
spend everything, for what doesn’t matter.
I try to forget, try not to care,
that there’s a happily ever after.

Then You reach out and call me close…

I’m just a girl, with nothin to offer,
and yet You say, “Come my dear daughter,”
I back away, afraid it’s not true, then
You say, “I truly love you.”

I sit alone, a humble beggar,
in the dank, dark, empty cellar.
I know, that no one cares,
that I’m alone, sitting there.

The stench so familiar, it feels like home.
I’ve been there again and again.
I’m on my own.

You say that you love me, but it’s like a dream.
Something so distant, I’d buy it again.
but I gave away, everything.
I’ve got nothin to give to the King.
Yet you pursue me, again and again.

I’m just a girl, with nothin to offer.
And yet You love me, and say, “I’m right here,” I pull out my pockets, there’s nothin left, then I say, “I can’t accept it I fear,”

You say, “I’ll be waitin right here.”

I look around, for some pay,
but then You hug me, and You say,
“Darling child, I love you,”

“But I’ve nothin’ today”

You pull me close and say, “I don’t care,”

but then I break away, “That isn’t fair!
I’ve done nothing to earn this.
Don’t get me wrong, sounds like bliss.
Don’t choose me my life is false.
Please go choose someone else.”

And You say, “But I love you, too.”

I am a girl, with nothin to offer,
but all I need, is my Father.
He loves me, for who I am.
So take that my doubts. I say, “BAM.”

“Standing By Me” by Free and Fearless (A.K.A: My Daughter)

In March, the Lord gave my daughter this song in a dream.  She (13 years old at the time), said she was in a band with her cousins, called, “Free & Fearless” as she played the guitar and sang the words into a microphone.  She asked that I make the songs public, though they are without music and her very first recordings, because she wants them available for people to listen to in case they need to hear what God thinks of them. I love her relationship with Him.

Standing By Me by Katlyn M.

Verse 1
When I hear the thunder,
thrown at me by life,
And I just don’t know,
how to deal with all the strife;
When all I see is rain,
crashing at my door,
And my heart is aching,
for what I don’t feel anymore;

I close my eyes, and I realize…

Chorus
All of my life you’ve,
been standing by my side;
All of this time you’ve,
been with me by and by;
And when the sorrows,
knocking at my door,
I will see that you are theere,
just like you were before;

Verse 2
The world comes crashing,
crashing all around me,
My eyes so full of tears,
that I can barely see,
I stand here, on my own,
just trying to make on glance,
Then you, walk over,
and you give me another chance;
You take the chains off of meee,
then all of a sudden,
I, am, free!

Chorus

Verse 3
Nothing, can stand in your way,
when you’re comin’ back for me,
You wipe away my tears,
so I can finally see!
(Softer)
I stand, free again,
from the sorrow and the chains.
I am, safe now, free now, loved now,
and here’s how…
because you’re with, me.

Music: You’re Gonna Be Okay by Brian and Jenn Johnson

This was shared in one of my support groups and I just had to share it. It’s so powerful and beautiful. ♥

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
I know it’s all you’ve got to just, be strong
And it’s a fight just to keep it together, together
I know you think, that you are too far gone
But hope is never lost
Hope is never lost

[Pre-Chorus]
Hold on, don’t let go
Hold on, don’t let go

[Chorus]
Just take, one step, closer
Put one foot in front of the other
You’ll, get through this
Just follow the light in the darkness
You’re gonna be ok

[Verse 2]
I know your heart is heavy from those nights
Just remember that you’re a fighter, a fighter
You never know just what tomorrow holds
And you’re stronger than you know
Stronger than you know

[Pre-Chorus]
Hold on, don’t let go
Hold on, don’t let go

Just take, one step, closer
Put one foot in front of the other
You’ll, get through this
Just follow the light in the darkness
One step, closer
Put one foot in front of the other
You’ll, get through this
Just follow the light in the darkness
You’re gonna be ok

[Outro]
And when the night, is closing in
Don’t give up and don’t give in
This won’t last, it’s not the end, it’s not the end
You’re gonna be ok
When the night, is closing in
Don’t give up and don’t give in
This won’t last, it’s not the end, it’s not the end
You’re gonna be ok
