The song below has been...mmm...sort of the song of the week for me.
I love these lyrics...
They recognize the human part...
the desire to want things to be easy.
to have no more pain, suffering, or hurt.
there is a greater desire
to be the person God wants me to be.
So even if God's plan for my life
includes tough times,
that's where I want to be...
because it's there that I will grow to be the person He has called me to be.

these lyrics are from Laura Story's album...

I admit there is a yearning for the hurting to subside. 
but not at the risk of losing what you're doing in my life. 

all I know to do is lift my hands to you.
take all of my life and make something beautiful.
open my hands.
trusting your plan to make something beautiful.

so that all will see
your work in me
as you make something beautiful.
