A Picture of Grace

romans7-15

I don’t really want it but it’s calling my name,
“William come and get me I can take away the pain.
Come a little closer you got everything to gain”
But I got to much to lose I’m bout to go insane.
I been here too many times, got my head low.
If I gave a dime for every time I’d be dead broke.
I feel that battle in my soul the pressure closing in,
My passions asking for a pass and I can’t hold it in.
There I go again no self control again, I’m too good at giving in.

Feeling like throwing in the towel the guilt is closing in.
Sometimes I climb the heights, but I’m at my lowest sin
Cloaked in deception and overdosing on potent sin.
I’m so gone baby, wanna be home again.
Wanna feel whole again, come fill this hole again.
Now I’m doubled over with my face in my knees
At your side is where I wanna be,
But there I go again I’m falling.

(There I go), Face to the pavement
Once again faced with the same sin
(There I go again I’m falling)
I don’t think I’m a make it
Don’t know how much longer I can take it
(There I go again I’m falling)
So I’m caught up in this sin
I wonder if I see Your face again
(There I go again I’m falling)
Falling [x3]
There I go

Trying to keep it cool I don’t wanna lead em playing
But it’s hard to block out everything that she be said
Look like keep coming baby just reach out an take my hand
There’s no need to fear me all I wanna do is dance.
I believe the lie now I’m headed for a door
They have finally got me locked and I’m bout to be consumed.

Feeling like I’m watched by everybody in the room.
Cause they know I’m a fake, and if not they will soon.
Have you ever felt like the walls fixn’ close in?
Shackles on your hands and your feet and your dozing.
‘Sleep to the logic you possessed, before all of the mess
Sound soberheadedness with the rest, what’s left is a schizophrenic shell where a man once was.
Now you get to see the damage your lust does.
So now I’m doubled over with my face in my knees
At your side is where I wanna be
But there I go again, falling.

(Chorus)

Everytime I fall He go’n pick me up
The Lord is my shepherd homie He go’n pick me up
I fell into the trap again but He go’n pick me up
Remind me of His promises, in Him I put my trust
I don’t never have to give in to the lies
I’m feasting on His word all my sin I do despise.
So now I’m down before His throne praying on my knees
Asking Lord give me grace please
I don’t wanna be falling.

So I gotta face this but I know there’s nothing that He can’t fix
(I don’t wanna be falling)
Looking to the cross where they placed Him
Cause I know His grace is amazing
(I don’t wanna be falling)
He’s covered all my sin
It’s gone never to be seen again
So Your calling
Calling [x3]
Me to You

O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?  I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord.  So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin. ~ Romas 7:24-25

 

The video really gets the point across of how when we are at our lowest, God will come and pick us back up.  All we have to do is reach out to him.  The honesty of his lyrics and struggle really speak to me.
