God Gave Me You

Posted on Friday 27 April 2012

Added more Blake Shelton to the music collection. I particularly like this video of Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton for his song “God Gave Me You”.

I just wish Ellie would listen to the words of this song and realize that I am here for her and love her. My commitment to her is a lifetime one if she still wants it. But, she has to make her amends and ask me for help if she wants me back in her life. It was her choice to push me away, and she has to show me that she wants me back in her life and is as committed to me as I have been to her.

She can make the choice to stay a drug-addicted alcoholic or she can choose to become who God meant her to be. I seriously doubt that God’s plan for her was for her to be a drug-addicted alcoholic that she has been for almost the past year. Of course, God gave her free will and she can choose to be whatever she wants to be—but that doesn’t mean it is God’s Will for her.

If she takes a hard, honest look at herself and the people she has pushed away, hurt and lied about and why it happened, I think it will be obvious to her that she has a drug and alcohol problem. However, she has to have the courage to take that hard, brutally honest look at what she has been doing for the last eleven months.

“God Gave Me You”

I’ve been a walking heartache
I’ve made a mess of me
The person that I’ve been lately
Ain’t who I wanna be

But you stay here right beside me
And watch as the storm blows through
And I need you

Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
And for when I think I lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you
Gave me you

There’s more here than what we’re seeing
A divine conspiracy
That you, an angel lovely
Could somehow fall for me
You’ll always be love’s great martyr
And I’ll be the flattered fool
And I need you
Yeah!

God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
And for when I think I lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you

On my own I’m only
Half of what I could be
I can’t do without you
We are stitched together
And what love has tethered
I pray we never undo

Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
And for when I think I lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you, gave me you.
He gave me you.

As always, I would ask God to watch over my beloved Ellie. God bless her and protect her, even from herself. May God grant her the strength, courage, and will to fight her illness and return to being her true self. May God grant her the wisdom to see the truth—both about her illness and about us.
