Blue October – To Be lyrics

We asked God to remove our fear & direct our attention as to what He would have us to be (to be…)

What He would have us to be; just as happy, joyous, & free (free…)

He says when trouble comes cheerfully capitalize it as an opportunity to demonstrate His omnipotence

So walk the walk, talk the talk, & let go, let God (let God…)

It works out according to His will
His will
His will
His will
His will…

    As always Justin has hit the nail on the head! I'm newly sober and was having a rough day. I've listened to the track before but never really heard it. Then bam I'm in tears cause it was exactly what I needed to hear that day and now I'm hooked. I'm even considering this as my next tattoo. Hope this touches everyone who needs to hear it the way I did that day.

    This is my next tattoo. Blue October has helped bring God into my life, and since then, things have been much easier to deal with. I'm never alone. To me, this means just keep pushing and keep striving through better things, and God will be there every second and step of the way. Trust your gut that whatever you're doing, no matter how hard, it's the right thing. I believe "gut" feelings are signs from God, they're just hard to act on. This little bit of a song means so much to me, and I listen to it whenever I need a pick me up and reassurance that what I'm doing in life is okay. That I'll be okay.
