Anyway

At work they play country music all day and I have heard this song several times but today I really heard the lyrics for the first time and they really ministered to me. It's funny how you can hear something over and over but you don't really hear it until you need it, you can't tell me that's not God!! Well, I hope they have the same effect on at least one more person!!!

You can spend your whole life building
Something from nothing
One storm can come and blow it all away
Build it anyway

You can chase a dream
That seems so out of reach
And you know it might not ever come your way
Dream it anyway

God is great
But sometimes life ain't good
And when I pray
It doesn't always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway
Yea I do it anyway

This world's gone crazy
It's hard to believe
That tomorrow will be better than today
Believe it anyway

You can love someone with all your heart
For all the right reasons
In a moment they can choose to walk away
Love them anyway

God is great
But sometimes life ain't good
And when I pray
It doesn't always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway
Yea I do it anyway

You can pour your soul out singing
A song you believe in
That tomorrow they'll forget you ever sang
Sing it anyway
Yea, sing it anyway

I sing
I dream
I love anyway.

Such a good song - but like you, I never really heard the lyrics either! Very powerful :) I love country music.. I blame it on growing up in Iowa. At least my husband likes it also!

I love that song! I have a soft spot for country (even though it's not my favorite). We lived in rural Ohio for awhile, and they only had country stations!
