Francesca Battistelli – Time In Between lyrics

You were there when your Father said
Let there be light
You obeyed when He whispered
Son, You have to leave tonight
To spend nine months in a mothers womb
Three days in a borrowed tomb

But it's the time in between
That brings me to my knees
Knowing you came for me
And all that I can't be
I'm amazed, so amazed
And I thank You for the time in between

Don't take much for this crazy world
To rob me of my peace
And the enemy of my soul
Says You're holding out on me
So I stand here lifting empty hands
For you to fill me up again

But it's the time in between
That I fall down to my knees
Waiting on what You'll bring
And the things that I can't see
I know my song's incomplete
Still I'll sing in the time in between

So many ways
Your love has saved the day
And I'm grateful for them all

But it's the time in between
The middle of two thieves
That says everything
It's the reason I believe
I'm amazed, so amazed
And I thank you for the time in between
Oh Lord, I thank you for the time in between

    Between life and death, there is time. We, have 'time' just like jesus. We all go through seasons in life, sometimes we are praying, believing, waiting on god, and sometimes we feel as close as we have ever been to god, sometimes both. If you are struggling and waiting, you can wait with peace that only jesus gives, and while we wait, the most important thing is the time in between. What are we gonna do with it? What did jesus do? And what can we do? Trust god, allow him to fill us with his love, his peace, so we are not consumed, and that will help us serve god, to put others first, to love like jesus, teach, give, be a good witness because nobody is exempt from hard times in life, and everybody is watching. Yet we can't run 'love' on empty, gotta get filled up, we love because he first loved us. How are you gonna use your time in between?

    I think the meaning of this song was like, Jesus was there when God told him to go and die for everyone, and he was there in the end when he died. He went willingly! He died for eveyone's sins. He's awesome! And we should be like him because I guess we are to know that Yes he came to earth and Jesus knew his Father before he was in Mary's womb, and It matters about the things we do in the time in between! All the little things that we do and say in our lives are important. God is sooo amazing!

    If you think about how many times in a given day that we complain of our ills or wants not filled. If we think each day about what jesus did for us, what he went through for each of us through his love that we are beyond simply blessed. Once I really started to think on his life 'in between' and then thought of all the things I've asked god for, be it health, money or petty junk throughout my life I felt disgusted with myself. And then I started praying for the right things. All because of 'the time in between' not the song but literally.
