What I’m listening to: “Resurrection” Nicol Sponberg

Here are the lyrics:

I’m at a loss for words, there’s nothing to say

I sit in silence wondering what led me to this place

How did my heart become so lifeless and cold

Where did the passion go?

When all my efforts seem like chasing wind

I’ve used up all my strength and there’s nothing left to give

I’ve lost the feeling and I’m numb to the core I can’t fake it anymore.

 

Here I am at the end I’m in need of resurrection

Only You can take this empty shell and raise it from the dead

What I’ve lost to the world what seems far beyond redemption

You can take the pieces in Your hand and make me whole again, again

 

You speak and all creation falls to its knees

You raise Your hand and calm the waves of the raging sea

You have a way of turning winter to spring

Make something beautiful out of all this suffering

 

Here I am once again I’m in need of resurrection

Only You can take this empty shell and raise it from the dead

What I’ve lost to the world what seems far beyond redemption

You can take the pieces in Your hand and make me whole again, again

The first time I heard this song was several years ago on the radio. I immediately connected.  It was SO timely and hit the nail right on the head. You can hear the heartache and agony in the lyrics. It expresses the very thing you want to say but don’t know how to communicate. In this walk, we will ALWAYS need God. Anything that speaks about Christ’s resurrection power, I’m all over it. Obviously, this is not a song you sing in the shower. I haven’t listened to it in a long time but this morning I pressed play on my ipod and it was a “Jesus Take the Wheel” moment!
