When I first started to consider writing about how a song affected me I thought ok I can do to this, but what song as there are so many songs that have deep meaning to me. Songs that make me tear up as I am singing along in church, my car, my kitchen.
I chose Zach Williams, Survivor. It talks about carrying the burdens of my past. The decisions I had made were not always the best. Most days, I would fall to my knees and cry in prayer. It took me many years to open my eyes and see what God was trying to tell me.
That I am worth being rescued and being welcomed with open arms to the one place that I felt comfortable……alive in the arms of Jesus. I felt alive when I opened my heart and became a survivor of my bad choices. God has shown me how he wants me to live my life. I am a survivor and thank God every day for never losing hope in me. For shaking my world so I would listen and reach out to him with all I have each day.
I encourage you to open your heart and become a survivor if you are feeling lost. He is listening to you, just reach out and he will help you …… Survive!
May God bless you!
