My Wife Is Amazing!

Our church had a leadership conference recently were our pastor used the analogy of a french press coffee maker and how the process of brewing coffee in that is often like how God does things in our lives. There is the process of being ground, and then brewing, which takes about 4 minutes and can seem like forever (especially for coffee addicts). And if you end that brewing process too early then the coffee is weak and if you wait too long then it turns bitter. Then there is the process as you press down on the plunger and squeeze the coffee grounds down and get the pure coffee brew.

Well, as a result of that and with all of the stuff that Kimmy and I have been going through, inspired her to write a song. The song you can hear by pressing play on the player below is that song and I posted the lyrics as well. It is titled, “Satisfy You”. And major kudos goes to Colin Harfield our Music Pastor who took the music from Kim’s lips to create a beautiful guitar piece as back-up. Thanks, Colin!

Satisfy You
By Kimberly Porter

I’ve been left here in my tears alone.
Their eyes seem blinded to my pain.
I sit waiting for a ray of hope
Doors are closed with no ground to gain.

Still in this dying hope I sit
Desperately wanting to escape
Please give me courage to endure
This grimy pit while I wait

Give me a sign that You’re ready to move
What you want, I’m so ready to do
If I’m not full flavor than please keep me here for a while
Till I completely satisfy You.

I’ve been simmering here for so long
Fighting the bitterness setting in
Someday a glimmer of light I will see
You will lift me up out of this tomb.

Bridge:
For Your faithfulness has proven to me
That You’re timing is perfect
Even when I can’t see
Where I am is where You want me to be
Cuz’ You love me, You love me

Give me a sign that You’re ready to move
What you want, I’m so ready to do
If I’m not full flavor than please keep me here for a while
Till I completely satisfy You.
