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
