The Way Back To You

couple together at sunset

Dear reader: I wanted my wife, Karen, to wake up to the surprise of a completed song lyric the Lord, Karen and me worked on together. Could you please boost Karen’s confidence in her ability to write song lyrics? Karen took the song lyric to a higher spiritual level and helped it to flow from one verse to the next. She is the love of my life next to God. I would be so thankful if you would offer her an uplifting comment about her song writing ability. 

I have written  many song lyrics. Karen says that when my Lord is ready, He’ll bring the people He wants to get all His song lyrics He inspired me to write published and put to music, His music for His Kingdom purposes. What a powerful message of hope for our world it would be if we all used our gifts to glorify God, to draw others closer to Him, lift people out of poverty, to build a more beautiful and loving world together with His help.

Lord, please show us all the way back to You. 

 

The Way Back To You

Lord, You called me when I was lost
You gave Your life for me
Didn’t count the cost
You came into my darkness
Showed me how much You love me

Then, so many years went by
I sought to lead others to Your light
Then came the valleys, illness and struggle
I breathed this prayer to You

Chorus:

Lord, I’m searching for my way back to You
No one in the world can love me like You do
You know me like no other
Love me closer than a brother
Show me the way back to You

In my sadness I cried out to You
You told me no matter what happens to me
You’d be with me now and into eternity
So now I shine my light for You
Always and only, just for You

Chorus:

Lord, I’m searching for my way back to You
No one in the world can love me like You do
You know me like no other
Love me closer than a brother
Show me the way back to You

Thanks for bringing a beautiful woman into my life
I’m so glad she is my wife
She loves me through joy and strife
I fall into her arms
Feel Your love flowing through her
She draws me closer to Your heart

Chorus:

Lord, You’ve shown me my way back to You
No one in the world can love me like You do
You know me like no other
Love me closer than a brother
You’ve shown me the way back to You

Lyrics: Kevin and Karen Osborne

  1. Kevin, I do believe God uses people to pour out His love upon us. What a blessing to have Karen in your life! In this song, I especially love the chorus. It illustrates the love of God so beautifully, His willingness and power to draw us back to Him in our weakness. Just beautiful.

    • Hi Susan

      Thanks, dear friend and sister in Christ for those touching comments. Yes, Karen is the second greatest blessing of my life. My first is how much my Lord loves me a sinner who stumbles, falls, who seeks to love his Lord in my weaknesses. He is teaching me how important it is to stay close to His heart.

      Please feel free to share this song or any of the pieces I’ve written with those whom you feel it would be a blessing to.

      I was moved to tears of joy by one husband’s comment.

      “Feel Your love flowing through her
      She draws me closer to Your heart”

      Kevin, you and Karen have just put into words how that very same thing feels to me. Sort of choked-up right now, kind of wet eyes, drawing me closer to her and Him. Even though she is at work, not here, physically somewhere else – still got me. Still drew me.

      Bless you both for your love.
      ——————————————
      Please pray that this song and all the song lyrics I’ve written, Karen and me will write and the ones my Lord is calling me to sing, will reach all the hearts God want it to.

      Susan, I don’t know if this will come to be. I just keep getting this feeling in my heart that my Lord is going to continue to use this song and the others to touch people’s lives in a special way.

      All of us as co-authors on Mind’s Seat and our own blogs share a collective passion for those who need God’s love so much. Wouldn’t it be an awesome thing if God used this song and the others for the purpose of poverty alleviation? I know that all of us want so many starving from lack of love, opportunity, hunger and the dying of hope to feel God’s love flowing through them, to know He will provide for all their needs as more of God’s people really here the cries of suffering souls for practical and spiritual help.

      Lord, run Susan over with so many blessings that she will just feel so deeply loved by You and all the people of love you draw around her. I thank You for her life, joy, teachable spirit, her heart, and the love that pours out of her soul. Amen.

      Susan, have a beautiful and Son-filled weekend!

      Kevin.

  2. Hi Paul

    That is quite special for a man to open up the way you have about how the song has touched you. Your wife must be a blessed woman to have such a loving husband as you.. Hold God and your wife close, Paul. Our wives are a gift from our Lord. I know you know that, because of the love you have for your Lord and her that flows with each thoughtful and considered word you wrote.

    Enjoy your Lord and your wife.

    May the Lord pour out His richest blessings into your marriage and all the areas of your life.

    • Hi Lilka

      Thanks for taking time from your busy schedule to comment. God is already at work touching people’s lives with this song lyric. Yes, a wonderful spouse is a blessing. I said to Karen, “Darling, we need to collaborate on more song lyrics together.” This is one of Karen’s beautiful additions to the song. “So now I shine my light for You
      Always and only, just for You. Wow! Touching words about one’s spiritual journey. Karen spoke the thought into words that was in my spirit.

      As I awake from a late night putting the finishing touches on the song, my Lord is helping me to see just how moving the song lyric is. He speaks to my heart that it will be used in marriage enrichment. When you read Paul’s comment below, you will see how the song has brought him closer to God and his wife. That one comment alone makes all the hard work that went into the song worthwhile.

      Lord, it’s Your song. Use it for Your glory. Touch many lives with its message of love, love for You and the call to cherish our spouse as a gift from You. Amen.

      May the Lord shower you with His richest blessings in all the areas of your life.

      Kevin

      • It is sorely needed Kevin, a song to allow us to see the light before us that God has blessed us with. As we can move closer to one another it pushes us closer to God.

        Kind of like a pyramid, the husband and wife are at opposite ends but when we grow closer together moving toward the top of the pyramid we move closer to God, together. B Blessed!

      • Hi Lilka

        I couldn’t have said it better myself. The Lord has given you a beautiful gift to write about His love for us and our call to love our spouse. I will be sharing your comments with Karen.

        You B blessed too!

        Have a Son-filled weekend!

        Kevin
