​I Know

This song is by B.Reith and appears on the album Now Is Not Forever (2009).

Everyday is a new beginning filled with tale's untold
Through a tainted window we all watch our lives unfold
And so it goes, on and on, on and on and so it goes

Some doors happen to be open while other's they stay closed
While we try to plan ahead nobody truly knows what tomorrow holds
Oh-oh-oh and that's how the story goes

I know life may not always go the way you planned
You can't stand it, you feel left alone and abandoned oh-oh-oh
But I know the One who's in control and how He made you

He won't leave you, forsake you nor deceive
Unexpected turns they lead us off the beaten path
We end up in a desert wondering how long will we last
Before we crash and burn and our hopes turn into fears

There's beauty in the brokenness for inside it we find
That pain produces character like grapes squeezed into wine and over time
We see how divinely we were designed

Life's surprises can paralyze us and leave us by the wayside dying to
Find a reason to keep on breathing when all hope is gone
To keep on believing, keep on believing

(Brian Reith copyright 2009)

Behind the Song:
"The melody for I Know popped into my head out of nowhere. I remember thinking, "Hmm, this one might work for radio." "Everyday is a new beginning filled with tales untold, through a tainted window we all watch our lives unfold and so it goes..." Life is a journey full of ups and downs, open and closed doors, with pleasant and unpleasant surprises along the way. I Know is about this journey we're on, how painful it can get, yet God is in control, "He made you, He won't leave you, forsake you nor deceive you."" - B.Reith
