All the Little Things #2sdayriff

More Than You'll Ever Know


Watermark is not my favorite band. I generally do not listen to them. How did one of their songs get into an edition of #2sdayriff you ask? Even a broken clock is right twice a day! BTW don't comment on how insensitive I am to this artist. They are supremely talented, but their style does not jibe with mine. However, this song resonates with me.

My wife played this song last night on the way to birthday dinner at my grandmother's house. It was beautiful. It was a summation of the way I felt towards her for the amazing birthday weekend she painstakingly planned for me. Not only that, it also describes the amount of support she provides me with. I asked her recently if I was weird, she calmly reminded me that she married me, so I couldn't be that strange. She is a great comfort to me.

She also prays for me. She prays constantly, and I know it. She is a supportive wife who does all the little things to ensure my success. I am grateful for that. This illustrates the power of relationships & the impact you can make in your own home. Are you making the most of that opportunity?


Something brought you to my mind today
I thought about the funny ways you make me laugh
And yet I feel like it's okay to cry with you.

Something about just being with you
When I leave I feel like I've been near God
And that's the way it ought to be.

'Cause you've been more than a friend to me 
You fight off my enemies
'Cause you've spoken the Truth over my life.
And you'll never know what it means to me
Just to know you've been on your knees for me.
Oh, you have blessed my life
More than you'll ever know.
More than you'll ever know.

You had faith when I had none,
You prayed God would bring me a brand new song
When I didn't think I could find the strength to sing.

And all the while I'm hoping that I'll
Do the kind of praying for you that you've done for me.
And that's the way it ought to be.

You have carried me,
You have taken upon a burden that wasn't your own.
May the blessing return to you
A hundredfold.
A hundredfold.

Your Turn!
