Understanding the Lyrics: God’s Not Done

When you're happy, you hear the music; when you're sad, you understand the lyrics. - frank ocean

I’m back with another song that has been stuck in my head/speaking to me lately.

Being in the thick of the holiday season can just be hard.

Everywhere you look theirs more to do, more demands, more things to keep up with.

The first lines of this song are what always grab me.

God’s Not Done –
Tauren Wells

Standing in your ruins, feels a lot like the end
So used to losing, you’re afraid to try again
Right now all you see are ashes
Where there was a flame
The truth is that you’re not forgotten
‘Cause Grace knows your name

God’s not done with you
Even with your broken heart and your wounds and your scars
God’s not done with you
Even when you’re lost and it’s hard and you’re falling apart
God’s not done with you
It’s not over, it’s only begun
So don’t hide, don’t run
‘Cause God’s not done with
You-ou-ou-ou-ou
You-ou-ou-ou-ou

There’s a light you don’t notice
Until you’re standing in the dark
And there’s a strength that’s growing
Inside your shattered heart
Woah-o-o-o-o-oah

God’s not done with you
Even with your broken heart and your wounds and your scars
God’s not done with you
Even when you’re lost and it’s hard and you’re falling apart
God’s not done with you
It’s not over, it’s only begun
So don’t hide, don’t run
‘Cause God’s not done with
You-ou-ou-ou-ou
You-ou-ou-ou-ou
He’s not done with you
You-ou-ou-ou-ou
You-ou-ou-ou-ou

He’s got a plan, this is part of it
He’s gonna finish what He started
He’s got a plan, this is part of it
He’s gonna finish what He started
He’s not done
God’s not done writing your story
No, He’s not done
God’s not done with you!
God’s not done with you

God’s not done with you
Even when you’re lost and it’s hard and you’re falling apart
God’s not done with you
It’s not over, it’s only begun
So don’t hide, don’t run
‘Cause God’s not done with
You, You (You-ou-ou-ou-ou)
You, You (You-ou-ou-ou-ou)
You, You
No, He’s not done
God’s not done with you

I’m Sorry, but….

I'm sorry, but...

How many times have you heard that?

How many times have you said that?

Someone brilliant once said:

Everything before the word "but" is horse shit.
“Everything before the word “but” is horse shit.”

Think about that.

As soon as you add “but,” “yet,” “I just,” you negate whatever you said preceding it.

Make sure you make the apology its own sentence.

End it. Period.

I. Am. Sorry.

No attitude. No sarcasm.

Pure and simple.

Be sorry.

Then, wait.

You are not the next one to speak.

You do not fill the silence.

It will uncomfortable.

Deal with it.

The conversation will continue, and THEN you can provide more information.

Don’t make excuses. Don’t shift blame.

Accept that you hurt them and be sorry.

Your apology needs to be as loud as your disrespect was.

“No, but…” or even “Yes, but…”

“But” ends the conversation. It ends the possibilities, the potential, sometimes the respect.

Focus on AND

Focus on saying, “Yes, and….”

One of our favorite commercials ends with:

Why not both?

One last time, when you say but,
you are negating what came before.

Remove the but.
