Holding Nothing Back

15:25:00 Karen Li 0 Comments

Over a couple of days last week, we had a visit from a Malaysian worship team. In a series of worship workshops that followed, the bunch of young people who attended, myself included were bought back to the heart of worship.

Sometimes I stand frustrated in the front of a crowd, trying all my skills and techniques to get others to sing. Trying to move emotions, change hearts. When the people before me chat amongst themselves or fail to sing, I sometimes take it as a personal attack. It's the wrong attitude to worship and leading worship.

It's a good reminder to bring myself back to God, and have none of this pride, this leaning on my own abilities get in the way. I'm going to hold nothing back, I will choose to worship freely because God is worthy of all - everything-

Verse 1:

Em           C               G
Behind this curtain there is
               D
A heart that's hurtin'

It's been
Em       C
Takin' a beating
     G                 D
It's starting to fall apart
Em               C           G
And I feel like such an easy target
         D
dodgin' bullets
       Em
I'm exhausted
              C              G       D
How can every moment be this hard?

Pre-Chorus:

            Em                C
I'm Holdin' Nothin' back from you
               G             D
Doesn't really matter what I lose
                   Em
Got a heart that's open
    C
I'm broken
      G           D
And I want you to Know

Refrain:
Em  C
Jesus
G            D   Em
I don't want anything
       C        G
Comin' in between
D       Em
You and me
   C
Jesus
        G             D               Em
Doesn't matter what I have to go through
            C       G
I'm holdin' nothin' back
        D         Em    C    G    D
nothin' back from you

Verse 2:
Em         C              G
I've got a list that goes on and on
     D          Em
It's overflowin'
                 C
With memories of everything
     G               D      Em
That I've been doin' wrong
                C        G
And I'll be the first to say
                  D               Em
I've chased after so many foolish things
              C                   G
Looking for a way to kill the pain
     D
Oooh

(Pre-Chorus)
(Refrain)

Bridge:
                C
I try to do the right thing
         G
Why am I strugglin'
        D
Day to day
                     Em
With these same ol' things
                        C
Whatever's takin' you place
                       G
I'm gettin' out of the way
                       D
I'm getting out of the way

Refrain 2:
Em
Jesus
C                G
I don't want anything
             D
Comin' in between...
Em
Jesus
C                    G
I'll do what I gotta do
                    D
I'm holdin' nothin' back

Back from you

Back from you

Nothing back from you
D          Em    C    G    D
Back from you
