He Meant It For My Good

He Meant It For My Good

Peoples, Dottie

 

VERSE:
I�ve had trials and tribulations, unexpected situations, living here below
I�ve had friends that turned their backs on me and leave me standing in the cold.
I�ve been hurt in the church as I attempt to do God�s work
By people who called themselves �friends�
Many times I felt like giving up, but the Spirit says, �You can�t�
You know the Lord will put you through a lot of things you can�t understand
And for everything He allows there�s a reason
So in my life, the devil gets no glory
Everywhere I go, I�ll tell the story
How God�s got a way of turning things around

CHORUS
He meant it for my good; God meant it for my good
He brought me out without a doubt I knew that He would
Now I know no defeat, I�m strong when I�m weak
God gave me a song, now I must sing on
The devil meant it for bad, but I�m so glad
God meant it for my good.

 

VERSE:
The gossip, the lies, the tears in my eyes have worked out for my good
You see, I�ve stood the test of time and like a tree by the water, I stood
You see, through it all God gets the glory
Everywhere I�ll tell the story, how God worked out things just for me
The devil meant it for bad, but I�m so glad
God meant it for my good

CHORUS
REPEAT 2xs

VAMP
He meant it; he meant it
That old devil meant
But God didn�t want it that way
Oh no, no, no, no, no
He meant it for my good, yes
God meant it for my good
The devil meant it for bad, but I�m so glad
God meant it for my good.
