You Lift Me Up

Lift Me Up

by The Afters

You lift me up with your love
You lift me up with your love
You lift me up with your love
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

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
You lift me up with your love
You lift me up with your love
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

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

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

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

I can see the dawn is breaking
I am feeling overtaken with your love

You lift me up with your love
You lift me up with your love
You lift me up with your love
You lift me up

Thank goodness I serve a perfect God!!  I am so unworthy yet He is so forgiving and so faithful!  Let’s face it, people and things will let you down.  That’s why you should never put all that you have into somebody else.  You should immerse yourself in the love and hope of Christ ONLY and then, and only then, will you be humbled and completely satisfied.  This song has brought me to my knees on several occasions in the past month and with tears streaming down my face I am reminded that although I have failed on way too many occasions, said things I regret and cannot take back, spent money when I shouldn’t have, done things that have hurt people I love, and my list goes on…  My Father in Heaven still wraps His arms around me at those weakest moments and loves me like nobody ever could.  His affirmation is what I seek and not the approval of man.  I know, because of the blood Jesus shed for me and for you, that even though I am less than some people prefer me to be, that I am so much more than what they see.  I am letting go, giving my whole heart and soul to Jesus, to mold me and make of me what He wants me to be…  not what I want to be or what I think I should be or what I think someone else wants me to be…  I am choosing to let Him perfect me in His image.  I want to be where He wants me to be because He lifts me up…

“The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.” – Psalm 23
