I heard this song on the radio yesterday morning, soon as after I hit publish on my post about friendship/community. This isn’t a very new song—but it really resonated with me, particularly as I relate it to that post.
The further I travel down this whole understanding of who God is and why things happen, I’m realizing that it all comes down to how much I really, truly trust in Him. How much I trust in Him to provide for me as well as protect me. Unfortunately, when realizing this, I also realize how much I lack in this area. Yet, I know I can’t keep doing this on my own—it is exhausting in my own power. I think that is why this song resonated in such a powerful way within me.
Check out the lyrics. Watch the video.
Let me know your thoughts.
Savior, please take my hand
I work so hard, I live so fast
This life begins, and then it ends
And I do the best that I can, but I don’t know how long I’ll last
I try to be so tough
But I’m just not strong enough
I can’t do this alone, God I need You to hold on to me
I try to be good enough
But I’m nothing without Your love
Savior, please keep saving me
Savior, please help me stand
I fall so hard, I fade so fast
Will You begin right where I end
And be the God of all I am because You’re all I have
Everything You are to me
Is everything I’ll ever need
And I am learning to believe
That I don’t have to prove a thing
‘Cause You’re the one who’s saving me
Can I tell you how much I LOVE Josh Wilson? Amazing songs…amazing lyrics….
His words hit home on so many levels…
Thanks for posting this morning…
Great lyrics….I’ve exhausted all of my own resources and am also finally falling into the arms of God. To be able to truly rest in HIM….feels so great. Thanks for posting this song.
oh sister, i hear you. love you and am praying for you.
Aside from the fragility in those lyrics, I always appreciate being introduced to artists I’ve not heard of !
Praying for you in this season, and the next…and without ceasing.
As you know 🙂
i think he may actually be a country singer…. which i like. but this song was a breakout or something.
Never heard it before, but very appropriate to where I am in life. Thanks for posting!
