“Sittin’ Here Lookin’ At All My Stuff”

package-1511683__480Some of you know that I enjoy singing and songwriting and from time to time I share my songs via my blog posts, along with brief explanations as to what they are about.  Today I am sharing my thoughts on a song I wrote called, “Don’t Expect Much.”  It’s about that drive we all have as human beings to collect earthly goods, and how, at the end of our lives, all of the things we have collected will not matter.  When we realize this, we start thinking about what lies beyond this life.  Not sure about you, but I spent many years going my own way, and although I always believed that God existed, I did not spend time seeking Him out.  Then I met someone who began to share her faith with me, and by the way she treated me, made me want to know Him better.  She even gave me a Bible to boot.  It was the best gift she could have given me because it inspired me to learn more about Him.  (*If you are interested in receiving a free copy of the Bible let me know by filling out the contact form at the bottom of this post.  I will send them out while my supplies last.)  For an audio clip of and lyrics to “Don’t Expect Much,” see below.

Lyrics:

hey God, i’m sittin’ here lookin’ at all my stuff

and i’m thinkin’ i won’t need it where i’m goin’
but another thing that occurs to me
i got no good place for my soul to be
and i remember someone tellin’ me
bout livin’ with You in eternity
well, i don’t know You
so, i don’t expect much
cause i have gone my own, my own way
but i’m beggin’ You today, save me
didn’t think i’d be needin’ You
or this hole inside would come bleedin’ through
but every step i took, know now You knew
the good of a God who won’t leave when we do
can i be with You in paradise
you will be with Me in paradise
hey God, i’m sittin’ here lookin’ at all my stuff
and i’m thinkin’ i won’t need it where i’m goin’
