Favorite Quote:
Nothing is as wonderful as knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. I have given up everything else and count it all as garbage. All I want is Christ -Philipians 3:8


Broken glass and my blood stained hands
Where do I go from here

Running away from all the pain
Hoping one day to see things clear

Crying alone is the best thing I do
When no one can see my face

Wishing that someone would rescue me
From this dark horrific place

Chorus
Oh where are you? I need a savior.
I’m reaching out! But I’m drowning in my shame.
Jesus Christ, if you are who you say you are
Come. and forgive me, I’ll take the blame.
Yeah I’ll take the blame.

Quaking hands and beat up bones
I can’t get through another day

They laugh at me and give dirty looks
I remember every word they say

I’m sliding further in this black hole
Too scared to open my eyes

My emotions get the best of me
And I feel I might die

Chorus

I need you God.
I can’t find my way.
My heart is barely beating.
Come into my life today.

The author's comments:
This song symbolizes people’s hurts in the world. This person could have been a cutter, or been abused
by family members, or bullied by classmates, or suicidal, or maybe they were just in a bad relationship. The point is this person was very hurt and lost and wanted a way out. They had no hope and their life was spinning downward fast. Somehow this person must have heard about God and decided since nothing else was working he’d try God. He had lost all his emotional strength and went to his last glimmer of a chance, Jesus. The sad thing is most people do that; they wait until they've run out of options to go to God. It would be so much better if we went to Him first.
