Have you ever fallen in love with a song and then heard the story behind the song and it only makes you love it more? Redeemer by Sanctus Real really speaks to my need to still dream big dreams with the Lord. It’s too easy to come up with reasons to look at our prayers, our hopes, our life as small but Jeus gives us the reason to have the “courage to carry on”.
Sometimes I just want to start over, ’cause everything looks like a wreck
And I need the courage to carry on, ’cause I can’t see what’s ahead
And there are places I’ve wished I could be, battles I’ve wanted to win
Dreams that have slipped through my hands
I may never get back again
But I’m still a dreamer, a believer
Oh, I’ve lost my faith in so many things, but I still believe in You
‘Cause You can make anything new
Matt Hammitt, the lead singer, wrote this song in response to the strugles with his own life. Listen to the video and the song here to understand how important it is to remember that He makes everything new.
