Music Monday [Lift Me Up]


Today's Music Monday is brought you by The Afters.  


Lift Me Up (From the album Light Up The Sky)
You lift me up with your love (x3)
You lift me up

Waiting for the sunrise
Waiting for the day
Waiting for a sign
That I'm where You want me to be

You know my heart is heavy
And the hurt is deep
But when I feel like giving up
You're reminding me
That we all fall down sometimes
But when I hit the ground

(Chorus)
You lift me up when I am weak
Your arms wrap around me
Your love catches me
So I'm letting go
You lift me up when I can't see
Your heart is all that I need
Your love carries me
So I'm letting go

You lift me up with your love (x3)
You lift me up

I know I'm not perfect
I know I make mistakes
I know that I have let you down
But You love me the same

And when I'm surrounded
When I lose my way
When I'm crying out and falling down
You are here to

Chorus

I can see the dawn is breaking
I am feeling overtaken with Your love
With Your love
I don't know what I can offer
In this moment I surrender to Your love
To your love

You lift me up when I am weak
Your arms wrap around me
Your love catches me so I'm letting go



This song has helped me through the last week.  Some of you know that I admitted that I had messed up.  I wrote that it was hard for me.  It was.  It still is.  The hardest part was admitting it to myself and forgiving myself.  The hardest part was knowing that I hurt God.    



This face palm moment was necessary to get me back on track.  No more being lazy, distracted, or relaxed.  Food presents a spiritual battle with me...always!  God has not blessed me with a metabolism that can tolerate any and all calories and not gain.  And because of my bad food choices I have gained some pounds (I am not brave enough to tell you how many).  


I had to forgive myself, like God already has.   What seems like a big deal to me, is just a sin to Him.  He's heard my lament, my heart's cry, and is now giving healing.   I know that I can do this again, but I can't do this without God by my side.   He enables me to do more than I ever thought possible.  This song reminds me that when I fall down, God will lift me up.  His love heals my wrongs.  


Thanks to everyone who has been encouraging to me recently.  It is helping.  Don't give up on me.  I am not giving up on myself.  


Have you ever had a time when you have fallen?
