Your Grace Meets Me

Before you encounter this post make sure you scroll down and read the one right before it. Met By Grace.

Ok first I must say that I have AMAZING friends. AMAZING.

One in paticular is gifted beyond understanding in the area of music. He is a singer, a worship leader, and a songwriter. And all those areas came together to create the following. I will take a moment to brag on him and say that he is wildly talented and gifted and that his heart is in the perfect place for this gift to be used. He started writing this song this afternoon and had it finished and recorded by this evening. And it is AMAZING. Really, I cried as I listened to it. What I could feel and know in my head and heart, he can put into song and express something that I am not able. That is amazing to me.

Backstory: I wrote my last post, obviously something in it sparked something in Steve (that was absolutely already there) and jes and ben volunteered him to write a song about it. Steve did more than just that. He took this idea, this concept and he put it into something of his own.

Have I said how much I love this song. Really. LOVE IT.

So here you go, a dual blogging endeavor:

Lyrics:
Sometimes I find myself hanging over the edge of this life
Not knowing at all just where I should go
and sometimes i feel like everyone around thinks that I'm so high
when the truth is I've never felt so low
The reality of the situation at hand is this
the moods that I have been in lately are just a little bit hit and miss
and there is only one thing in this life I know

And Your Grace meets me
as I stand once again to face myself
And Your grace meets me
no matter what pain I have felt
All of this sin I have
that wont come clean
is washed away in that moment
That God's grace meets me

I've been lucky in life and hopeful in love but never both at the same time
been down in the mud feeling dirty and unclean
been lifted by friends and dropped once again dont they see the hell that I am in
sometines a smile just isnt what it seems
you see i can cry on the phone or cry all alone
but the answer for this cancer is high above on His throne

And Your Grace meets me
as I stand once again to face myself
And Your grace meets me
no matter what pain I have felt
All of this sin I have
that wont come clean
is washed away in that moment
That God's grace meets me

Wow... it was a great post, and an amazing song... thanks to Katie and to Steve for sharing your beautiful hearts

This reminded me of one of my favorite sayings...

"Grace is when God gives us when we don't deserve and mercy is when God doesn't give us what we do deserve"

i can't listen to it until i go home tonight, you know, because i have padded walls, but i am so excited to play it! i can hear it in my head, and wonder whether steve's rendition will be the same.

steve! you and kt should join forces. she can write stories and you can set them to music. and then you can make CDs and we'll all buy them!

Deals - just how many people can say that they have a stalker/bodyguard. I mean, isn't that an oxymoron???

I have the PRIVLEDGE of seeing K-T almost every week. Almost.
