solid ground

Everyone has a story.  Every person is so unique in the way God created them which makes each person so beautiful and extraordinary in their own way.  I believe each person’s story is a testimony to who they are, who the Lord made them to be.  The trials we face in this lifetime and the storms that we encounter when life is smooth sailing are what make us who we are as we are refined and tested and tried to the absolute most we can be.  However, it is in those times of deep despair and sheer hopelessness that the Lord redeems.  That point of brokenness where we fall on our knees out of desperation but in complete awe of our Savior who is the redeemer of our soul.  And we have freedom to rest in the knowledge that our eternity is in His hands.

2 Corinthians 12:9 “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties.

For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

I wrote this song about my story of redemption.  I wanted to share with you a piece of my heart through this song as it is meaningful to me, and I know each of you has your own story too.  The Lord gave me these words to sing and this story to tell and it has absolutely nothing to do with me.  Every single part of my story points back to Jesus.  I want Jesus Christ to be the song I can’t stop singing and the anthem of my life.

Ephesians 2:8-9 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.”

Therefore, I can’t take credit for this song.  I wanted to share it solely for the purpose of the glory of God.  This song is titled “Solid Ground” based off of Psalms 62:6; “He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken.”

Solid Ground

Darkness surrounds me, I can’t see a light

It’s out of my hands, I can’t even hold on tight

My insecurities have got the best of me, they’re eating me alive

I don’t know whats real and whats a lie

Lord, I surrender everything I am

I know You are faithful even when I don’t understand

I give You all of me, my heart with open hands

To You, I entrust my soul for You have greater plans

When I am weak, You are strong

When I can’t stand, You lift me up

You are my King, You’re my everything

When my world is shaking, I’ll stand on solid ground

Broken hearts aren’t meant to last forever

Jesus, You take my wounded parts and put them back together

My scars and my bruises You see as beautiful

To You, Abba Father, I entrust my soul

When I am weak, You are strong

When I can’t stand, You lift me up

You are my King, You’re my everything

When my world is shaking

The pain is seeping through my bones

These tears they seem to overflow

I’m swallowing my pride

For You’re saying, darling, rest in My embrace and your hurt will subside

When I am weak, You are strong

When I can’t stand, You lift me up

You are my King, You’re my everything

When my world is shaking, I pray I’ll stand on solid ground
