I was thinking of this song today... It was in a musical drama production of Joseph... This part of the drama was when Joseph met his brothers when they came to Egypt and he pretended he didn't know them. After meeting with them, Joseph went into his own chambers and wept.
I wonder how he felt at that time. I find it so hard sometimes to forgive people who have been cruel and unkind. I don't find it easy to trust again and be soft towards them again.
So I find myself singing this song as a prayer to God.. be the gentleness that You want me to be, because I don't have the strength to do it by myself...
Everything I Need
By The Continentals, from the 'DREAMER, The Story of Joseph' production
Lord I need you to be all the gentleness in me.
I’ve been trying by myself, struggling all alone.
From the very start I knew that I must depend on you.
Here I am, depending on, the rest is up to you.
You’re everything I need for You to be.
You’re everything that shines inside of me.
And I will have the strength to do
All you ask of me.
I will always let you be
Everything I need for you to be.
You are the One who put the stars up in the sky
To brighten the emptiness of space
And You put a light in me today
A dream that will not die away
To brighten every day
And I know that i can say…
