This song was published some time in 2012, and I just found it the other day! Such a beautiful song, helpful in the darkest times when you just long for forgiveness.
Sin is a deep trap that you just can't get out of without Christ. You can fall hundreds of times in the same exact trap, and feel like you don't deserve forgiveness. You repent every time but somehow you always fall again. You want to go to God, but you feel like you can't go to Him when you've sinned against Him, to His face, yet again.
Look into these lyrics:
"You refuse forgiveness
like it's something to be earned
sometimes pain's the only way that we can learn"
"Sometimes pain's the only way that we can learn"
In certain situations, we fail to learn the key lesson until we've fallen many, many times. In those instances we have to realize that, yes, what we did was wrong for sure, but no matter how recent you fell or how many times it has been, God still is waiting for you to ask Him for forgiveness. He wants us to want it. He will always forgive us, no matter the sin. We learn from our mistakes when we talk to Christ about them, and look to Him for the way out.
God has given us the power to choose who we become, and to choose every day who we want to be.
"You can never fall
that you can't get back when you're lost
where you are is never
that you can't change who you are"
I think we fail to realize that we don't have to be our past. Our story is just how we got to where we are today. In the same way, we don't have to be who we are today. If you're not satisfied with who you are, you can change that. God will always help you if you ask Him to.
Even if your biggest mistake was yesterday, or this morning, it does not have to define you. You choose who you are, and you are not your mistakes. Go to Christ! He's always willing and able to help and to forgive. You have the choice and the power to change, because you have Christ!
"I can do all things through Christ, who
Try to really think about what that verse means, word by word. So many things are lost when we just listen, but don't HEAR. I can do all things through Christ; He gives me the strength to do all things.
Don't let your past define your future.
