I'm Dancing Today

I want it all back

You may have thought you won that last round
You may have laughed (cuz) I almost fell down
Maybe you think I give up easy
But it's not over I got more in me
You thought I stopped you thought I sat down
But I am standing you made me mad now
You got somethings I think you owe me
I've come to get back everything that you stole from me

I want it all back

You hit me hard - I should be knocked out
Things I've been through - don't even wanna talk about
You crossed the line - (this time) you violated me
I want revenge - (I want everything back from) A to Z
The battle's not mine - the battle is the Lord's
In the name of Jesus I'm taking it by force

I want it all back

If you only knew what I was gonna be
after the storm you wouldn't have even bothered me

(But now i'm) stronger
(And I got more) power
(I'm a little bit) wiser
(And I got more) strength
(I got the) anointing
(Got God's) favor
(And we're still) standing
I want it all back

Maybe it's corny, but I'm excited this morning. I love the bolded section of the song. I've got victory this morning. If the Devil had only known how I was going to turn out, he'd never have even bothered with me. He wouldn't have even started with me. He should have let me be the apathetic, timid Apostolic who was fine to go to heaven on his own but who would never teach a Bible study or witness or even read his Bible in public because he wasn't willing to be labelled as a Christian. He should have let me be, because I would never have impacted a life or touched a soul. But he wasn't satisfied with just that.

He tried to destroy me. He tried to break me. He tried to bring me down. But what the Devil meant for evil, God used for good. What the Devil meant to shatter me, God used to strengthen me. What the Devil meant to disable me, God used to equip me. What the Devil meant to shame me, God used to humble me. When the Devil tried to silence me, God gave me a new voice.

I'd never teach a Bible study before, but I will now. I'd never witness before, but I do now. I'd never testify before, but I do now. I'd never dance before, but I'll look foolish now. I'd never identify myself as a Christian before, but now I have no other identity.

I'm here now to give the Devil hell. I'm going to give him violence. I'm going to give him headaches. I'm going to frustrate him. I'm going to fight him. I'm going to lay claim to my friends, to my family, to my coworkers in Jesus' name, and fight every step he tries to make. He brings violence, but I'm going to take it by force.

When I die, I want the Devil to say, "THANK GOD that man is dead. He's caused me too much trouble."
