Good To Me Lyrics

When it all don’t go the way I planned
When I’ve worked so hard for what I still don’t have
When my best is just not good enough
When the clouds turn dark and grey
I know you’ve always made a way

So I will look this storm in the eye
I won’t fear, for You’re on my side
My first hope, my last word
Now and forever
Let it rain, let it pour, I will sing
All You’ve ever been is good to me

At my very worst, You show me love
When I turn my back, You don’t give up
You meet my needs,
You always have
Steady and strong through the good and the bad

I will look this storm in the eye
I won’t fear, for You’re on my side
My first hope, my last word
Now and forever
Let it rain, let it pour, I will sing
All You’ve ever been is good to me

Constant and faithful
Proven and able
You’re all that I’ll ever need

I will look this storm in the eye
I won’t fear, for You’re on my side
My first hope, my last word
Now and forever
Let it rain, let it pour, I will sing
Let it rain, let it pour, I will sing
All You’ve ever been is good to me

2 stories about "Good To Me"

  • Kimberly Dean says:

    I was a ministers wife for over a decade. We lived the life with the church family one way and with our family another. He was a sex addict who became physically, emotionally, and sexually abusive to me. The physical abuse began to trickle down to one of the three of our children. I finally left the day he was arrested for trying to kill me. The Life which we had planned for and that I wanted to help others was over. Beside these battles my health was up and down and I was in and out of the hospital for years and still am. The journey out of addiction and abuse has been difficult. When I heard this song I thought yes it is raining, it is pouring, but I can still sing! God has been with me even in times when I was angry with Him. His Spirit is continually directing my path and comforting me. I have come to have a real relationship with God and have to come know the love through His sacrifice. I lived in fear for many years and God has been patient with me through it all. He has set me free. He has given me the spirit of fear and timidity no more. He walks with me and I know His strength has and does carry me through my weakness. This song came on as I was contemplating a knew venture in sharing my story and I knew the Holy Spirit was saying go do SING!

  • Brent Richardson says:

    My life has been the epitome of, ” not going the way I planned.” But, God knows His plans for me. I must confess that where I am now is worlds apart from where I had planned my life to be. I grew knowing that I wanted to serve my Country, and I wanted to be part of the best. I joined the Marine Corps, and signed up for their special forces unit, but I was disqualified (using civilian terms) during the endoc (interview phase). So, I was sent to the infantry, and selected for special weapons training. I became an Assaultman. My unit was deployed twice; I was shot at once, but never fired my weapon. While home at Camp Lejeune, a hurricane swept through the Carolinas, and flooded the base. Now at this time in my life I was horribly backsliding. The morning after the hurricane my NCO thought it would be fun to take a run through the flood waters. We ran through the runoff from the PX; which normally would be a couple inches high, is now chest high on a six foot frame. What I didn’t know was the horrible junk that came with flood waters. I also had a habit of cutting out ingrown toenails, and the open wound on my toe mixed with flood water spelled disaster. The next morning I woke up not being able to breath too well, and feeling like crud. My Corpsman took my temp, and it read 106 degrees. The details of what followed would fill a book, so the short of it is: I caught Haute virus which caused bilateral pneumonia and put me in a coma for a month. When I woke up my world had turned upside down. I went into the hospital a rock solid 220 lbs, and woke up at 105 lbs. I looked like a skeleton. While I was coming down from the medication, I had several hallucinations. One of them stuck with me. The wall of the hospital opened up,, and behind it was a glass door. Behind the glass door were several evil men,, from different time periods. They were banging and pushing on the door. But, a shadowy/ hazy figure stood on my side of the door, hands pushing against the glass. He was holding them back. At this time I pressed the nurses button, and asked her not to let them come in. This vision would come to me off and on for the next ten years. I couldn’t run anymore, and so I received a medical discharge from the Marines. I developed PTSD from the experience, though I found that out 14 years after. I worked various retail jobs, while I thought up a new plan for my life. I thought that I would make a good chef, and was preparing to go to culinary school, but God had other plans for me. The vision that I saw in the hospital invaded my dreams for a week a month prior to my ten year anniversary of my coma. Each night the vision of the shadowy/ hazy figure became clearer, until He was no longer hazy. I saw holes in His hands. I awoke and fell to my knees and prayed, confessing my various sins. He was holding back the evil, protecting me, the man who rebelled against Him. Like the prodigal son. The very next day the virus that lay dormant struck again. This time it ate away at the plura (outer layer of the lungs), leaving all the nerves in my lungs exposed. Every breath I take is a touch of agony. I’m now on oxygen, and my balance is off so I walk with a cane. Me and my wife joined and became very active in a great church. Over the years I found that singing relieved some of the pain. I was told by people in the congregation that I need to join the choir. So, I did. I started taking vocal lessons to keep my lungs moving. I’ve sung solo at various events. God, still had a plan for me and He urged me through the Holy Spirit to create a group rather a Fellowship that would bring together men and women that have served our Country and our Community (veterans, first responders, health care professionals). I cook for them once a month, and provide them not just with physical food but also spiritual food. COVID has placed a pause on our fellowship with one another, and break has placed a strain on those that were attending. But, we are about to start coming together again. I became a certified Chaplain so that I could properly help those in our group with needs such as: PTSD, depression, suicidal thoughts, and other tribulations. This song matches the ups and downs of life, and even when we are down we need to sing! So sing praises to a God who always provides and keeps His promises. I will always sing to Him with my baritone bass voice.
