WHEN RELATIONSHIPS DON'T WORK

(Deep inside each partner)
I offer God's Throne as your seat
You're here to make me whole and complete
Take away my pain, make me sane and sweet

True intimacy evades me-feelings not shared
Neither true to you nor me-underneath I'm scared
Afraid you'll reject the real me-fall short when compared

I can't accept you, I don't accept me
You feel controlled instead of loved
Trapped instead of free

I need God's Truth and healing to set me free
To replace resistance with acceptance
To love you unconditionally

JudyLea Johnson copyright 2003

Note: We need to submit to God and resist the devil and he will flee (James 4:7)
but that is different than resisting a truth and trying to control it.
God loves us where we are and grows us as we surrender to Him and we
can receive His grace and give it as we allow others to be where they are.
Thank you Lord that I can put my trust in you to heal and grow them too,
through prayer and surrender.
1CORINTHIANS 13:4-8
