Verse 1:
Just for me, many doors you’ve closed
Just for me, sometimes you will say no
So I’ll be, tested in your fire, to purify my desires
So my blessings won’t be
Just for me, so caught up in myself, I couldn’t see
The world did not revolve around me
So storms are in your will, so I can feel what others feel…
Their needs…
If I could speak honestly
CHORUS:
It don’t feel good, but growing never does
It don’t seem fair, for you to call this love
But if necessary pain, is the ingredient for change
Even when life may be bittersweet
It’s working…
Verse 2:
Just for me, all the moments I missed that were
Just for me, because I chose not to wait patiently
But for every mistake, was the same amount of grace
That kept my blessing waiting
Just for me, but trusting your timing is not easy
And what I want’s not always what I need
But somewhere I forgot, you are God and I am not…
I see…If I could speak honestly…

CHORUS:
It don’t feel good, but growing never does
It don’t seem fair, for you to call this love
But if necessary pain, is the ingredient for change
Even when life may be bittersweet
It’s working…
Bridge
Ooh la la-ah, ooo la la-ah , oh la la-aa-ah la, la la ,la la-
[I’m singing] Ooh la la-ah , ooo la la-ah , oh la la-aa-ah la, la la ,la la-
CHORUS:
It don’t feel good, but growing never does
It don’t seem fair, for you to call this love
But if necessary pain, is the ingredient for change
Even when life may be bittersweet
It’s working… [Repeat 2x]
Outro
Just For Me…. [Repeat as needed]

    I just came across this song recently on UA-my. All I can say is WOW! The words to this song truly minister and ring true and give insight into the reality of the Christian walk, inasmuch that sometimes, for our good, God will tell us "NO," or "NOT NOW," or "NOT YET." Because the Father is more interested in us being conformed to the image of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, than for us to receive immediate gratification that could kill us. We have a God Who truly loves us. Necessary pain DOES bring forth CHANGE! HALLELUJAH! God bless you, Kirk Franklin!

    This album reminds me of Beyonce's 2006 album "BDay".. Where she came out with multiple songs at one time. This album currently has 5 singles on the Billboard Hot Gospel Songs Charts. I ain't mad at ya Kirk.

    On 11.11.15...In Honolulu, Nimitz behind pier 8 n 9...I woke up at Jonathan's penthouse, where I was staying chaste...God said to me in my Right ear..You are Rain...I walked out on the balcony and said, It is time for a Rainbow..Immediately a double Rainbow appeared beside the building..Neighbor lady asked, How did you do that..I answered, I am not a Solo act.

    Kirk has a gift to lift the everyday person who may NOT know Jesus. It baffles me each time I hear his music. It's common for Gospel artist to lift the body of Christ, but man oh man when you can catch the ear, then heart of the unsaved.. That's God.
