I wrote another song.
Yes, yes… it’s true.
And this time, I recorded it right after I wrote it so I wouldn’t forget the tune! Always a plus. ;]
This song came to me in about 10 minutes. The lyrics, chords, tune, everything. When this happens, and it’s only happened a time or two, I believe it is God-inspired.
I wrote “The Second Chance” during one of my “let me think about life really deeply and psychologically” moments. It happens once in a while. I was thinking about how God gives me second chances even when I don’t deserve them. How I mess up time after time again and how He still opens his arms and lets me in. Grace. and Second Chances. Even after I fail and even after I struggle and even after I fall, God loves me. He picks me up and calls me his Daughter. He loves me and wants me and will never let me down. For that, I run to him. I run and I forget about my mistakes because He’s forgotten about them, too…and forgiven them. I have hope and faith that He will never leave me and for this, I am encouraged.
So…that inspired this song.
Please watch it. I hope the lyrics speak to you as much as they speak to me.
Our God is a God of Second Chances.
Here I am
Humbly walking this road so long
Take me here
Knowing my past mistakes are gone
’cause You are the One
Who took my shame
And You are the One
Who took on my pain
And loved me
Even though, long ago, I had given up hope
You saved me
My tears stain my skin
Watery eyes, blurred vision
i don’t deserve You now
But there You are, making it better somehow [Chorus]
Now I’m running
faster towards You
Leaving the past behind forever
You stay strong and never move on
You take me for who I am
And I’m Yours now
Hallelujah, forever [Chorus]
P.S. Side note: I don’t know why I do this, but I rock while playing piano. Please ignore that. hehe.
