Episode 13--Get Used to Different


******To listen and watch Mandisa's wonderful music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MdDttLJ2T-Q GET USED TO DIFFERENT by Mandisa

Lyrics: This year doesn’t look at all the way I thought it would This year I’ve been looking hard to find a little good I see the world on fire Find it hard to breathe It’s like a cloak of fear About to smother me

Oh God, my God Are you still here with me Please say something I need to hear you speak

Don’t You see that I’m doing something new You can trust that I’m working for your good I’m not doing what you’ve seen before My favor is on you for so much more Do you perceive it Get used to different

The angel told me not to fear this thing that God has planned But how can it be so cuz I have never known a man I could be rejected I could be disowned Treated like an outcast Likely even stoned

Oh Lord, my Lord Are you still here with me I am your servant I’ll follow where you lead

Don’t You see that I’m doing something new You can trust that I’m working for your good I’m not doing what you’ve seen before My favor is on you for so much more Do you perceive it Get used to different Get used to different

My ways are higher (Your ways are higher) My ways are better (So much better) Though sometimes strange What could be stranger than God in a manger?

Don’t You see that I’m doing something new (I see it; I perceive it)

Yes I see that You’re doing something new I can trust that You’re working for my good You’re not doing what I’ve seen before Your favor is on me for so much more

Do you perceive it (I perceive it) Do you perceive it (I believe) Get used to different (I’ll get used to different) Get used to different
