Music Monday: Believer

(listen on Spotify or Youtube)

I can see thru the laughter
I know you’ve cried your share of tears
But you don’t have to do this by yourself
You tell me that you feel abandoned
Carrying the weight of all this pain inside
You trust in someone else
But you’re crying out for help
 
I’m a believer
That He’s strong enough to hold you now where you are
I’m a believer
In the One who’s always reaching out to your heart
He understands you
There’s not a greater love that you’ll find in this life
I’m a believer in Christ
 
You’re trying to escape the landslide
Running from the choices that you’ve made
When will you surrender to His grace
He promises He’ll never leave you
Offering to free you from your past
Cause that’s the sacrifice He’s made
He can be your shelter and your strength
 
No matter what you’ve done
Or how far you’ve run
There is hope for you
For every broken heart
He’ll meet you where you are
He will rescue you
Let Him rescue you

I see you sitting there with your laptop balanced precariously upon your knees. I see you standing at the kitchen counter clutching your phone in your hand. I see you sitting at your desk clicking through today’s interesting blog posts.

I see you… not with my eyes, but with my heart. And I see past the smiles, past the busy household, past the mess, past the perfect outfit… and into your heart. I know tears have streamed down your face and spilled onto your hands. I know you’ve felt the weight of loss, betrayal, and failure.

I’ve been there too… in the hopeless abyss of uncontrollable circumstances. Some caused by my own mistakes and some by the mistakes of others. I know what it’s like to wonder if my life will be completely different the next time the sun comes up. To wonder if I will find myself somewhere else surrounded by people I do not know, because the people I love most have been torn from me. To wonder if a few short moments would promote me to the next stage of life long before I’m ready.

I’ve felt the ripping of the heart. I’ve wondered if it could ever be whole again. I’ve felt pain deeper than I had ever dreamed.

And you know what I found each and every time?

That He was there… strong enough to hold me. Strong enough to carry me through it all. Strong enough.

And He was there holding out His hand of grace… not just a forgiveness that withheld what I deserved, but grace that gave way more than I deserved.

And let me tell you… I’m finding He is THE most skilled heart surgeon in the world. His steady, confident hand has rescued me more times than I can count.

Let Him rescue you.

In the conservative circle in which I grew up, contemporary Christian music was not allowed. After marrying, I began to listen to a CCM radio station. Much of my spiritual growth since then can be attributed to the many CCM artists and the songs they write. There is truth in those words and power in their music.

If music means as much to you as it does to me, you might want to check out Spotify. This music program allows you to search for particular songs and save them to playlists, allowing you to listen to your music whenever you wish. Best yet, it’s free. (It will require you to download their music program to your computer, but I promise it will not download any junk.) You can find all the songs highlighted in Music Mondays at the Recovered Identity Spotify playlist.
