"All You've Ever Wanted" by Casting Crowns


Christina's Take

What do you want from me, God? I found myself asking this question the other week as I was in the studio.  I wasn't asking in a bad way,  just kind of like, God what's happening here? What is my life doing and is it measuring up?  Then I heard these lyrics from Casting Crowns: “All you've ever wanted, all you've ever wanted, all you've ever wanted...was my heart”. And that's ALL I needed to hear.

Every question, concern, wonder or doubt you may have about this whole God thing and where you fit in, know this; all he wants and has ever wanted was the center of who you are...your heart.

"All You've Ever Wanted" Lyrics

I just looked up today
And realized how far away I am from where You are
You gave me life worth dying for
But between the altar and the door
I bought the lies that promised more
And here I go again

Lord, I know I let You down
But somehow, I will make You proud
I'll turn this sinking ship around
And make it back to You

But all my deeds and my good name
Are just dirty rags that tear and strain
To cover all my guilty stains
That You already washed away

(‘Cause) All You've ever wanted, all You've ever wanted
All You've ever wanted was my heart
Freedom's arms are open, my chains have all been broken
Relentless love has called me from the start
And all You wanted was my heart

I was chasing healing when I'd been made well
I was fighting battles when You conquered hell
Living free but from a prison cell
Lord, I lay it down today

So I'll stop living off of how I feel
And start standing on Your truth revealed
Jesus is my strength, my shield
And He will never fail me

No more chains, I've been set free
No more fighting battles You've won for me
Now in Christ, I stand complete
