You Deliver Me

Tonight I heard Selah sing a song that is new to me, it's called...You Deliver Me. The words are great. It's so true that when we feel like we can't go on...He does deliver us. Sometimes it takes a while...but maybe that's our own fault. I was noticing the last chorus. Is there ever a distance between who you want to be and who you really are? If there is can you close the distance by yourself or do you need the Lords help? Something to think about tonight. I know I'm thinking about it.

YOU DELIVER ME

Deep as the ocean
Right as rain
This powerful emotion
Lifts me up above the plain
It's taking me to places
I never thought I'd go
Showing me a grace
I never thought I'd know

[Chorus]
When I feel like
I can't go on
You deliver me
And when the road is winding
And way too long
You deliver me
You deliver me

I feel like a sinner
Whose sins have been washed clean
An absolute beginner
Whose heart has never seen
I must be forgiven
For sometimes asking why
I was chosen to be given
You in this life

[Chorus]

When there's a distance
Between what I am
And who I wanna be
You deliver me

Psalm 32:7
You are my hiding place;
You shall preserve me from trouble;
You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.

2 Samuel 22:2
And he said:
“The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;

Hallelujah! Yes, He does deliver us. And you are right, sometimes it is quicker than other time. Blessings to you Chelle.

This is one of my most favorite songs, probably because of the reality of His deliverance in my own life. The "when there's a distance between who I am and who I want to be" part has always made me feel like God sees my heart. He knows there is that part of me so wants to be who He wants me to be and I am totally incapable to become that person without His help and I am so grateful that he bridges that gap.


Thank you for sharing your heart and the song.

Blessings,
Lori

Hi Chelle - that last verse is quite profound. Just goes to show its not about what we can do, but about what Christ does for us!
God bless
