Commissioned – Ordinary Just Won't Do lyrics

Have you ever needed someone
A shoulder just to cry on
To ease the agony
And find tranquility
A sweet and gentle touch
That speaks of words
Speaks of love that mean so much
Ordinary just wont do
I need someone, my Lord, I need someone
That someone is You, that someone is You

A quest in order to find
What lies in my heart in my soul in my mind
Sometimes serenity
But then there's misery
So many weaknesses and faults I've got to learn to
Share the inner most and secret thoughts
The ordinary person just won't do
Lord I need, Lord I need someone
That someone is You, that someone is You
Lord I need a special thought
And You mean so very much

Close friends they don't seem to understand
Problems in your life
So complex you say who can comprehend
Tragedy when you need relief
Only Jesus Christ can supply your need
A sweet and gentle touch
That would speak of word of love that mean so much
The ordinary just won't do
I need someone, Lord I need someone, yes I do
That someone is You, that someone is You

The ordinary just won't do
I need a love that's pure and true
I can always find it in you Jesus
The ordinary just wont do
I gotta have a touch from You
I can always find it in You Jesus

    I'm going thru a trying period in my life where noone can really understand or reach out to me to make things different. I have my family & my boyfriend & they love me to pieces but recently, its been a lonely walk. I guess god reserves some areas of your life where only he can touch you. So there- ordinary love just hasnt done much for me. I'm learning to trust god, his plans & desires & ways more. He's pulled me away from the crowd & away from the noise to a quiet place of preparation to teach me what real love is about, to show me that when it comes to real wholeness- which is where I'm reaching for- ordinary just wont do. To remind me he's a jealous god too! He will not share his glory!
    God has glorified himself & encouraged me in amazing ways through these times & I'm enjoying his extraordinary supernatural love that has always been there for me but I never really took in. He preserved the things & people & other blessings he's given me and took this time out to reduce me to this point in my life where ordinary didn't cut it anymore- I'm at the foot of the cross, thankful for his amazing love for me! I'm starting to see theres a purpose in my 'mess'. Praise god!
