01. God Help Me

If I Had One Chance To Tell You Something
by Rebecca St. James



 

From the deep I cry
I am needing change in my life
I have let the cold creep in and lock my ability to feel (deeply)
Just now a shaft of light shot through my soul
Opening up the windows and the doors
Reaching to the corners and my flaws
Showing my need

I’m running out of time to live
Running out of love to give
Running out of life within
God help me

I don’t care who stares
Never want to be what I have been again
Grace has taken over and drawn me in and I am embracing it
‘Cause now I see Your light drawing me close
Overwhelming love I don’t deserve
But I’ll take the hope You bring, You hold it out to me
Without You

Behind the Song:
“I wrote this song on my 27th birthday. I was in L.A. just hanging out with some friends over there. That morning I had such a sense of, “Man, life just moves by so quickly!’ It simply moves on—and it often feels to me like I’m running out of time. I’ve also felt (at times when I’ve not been sufficiently relying on God) that I am running out of life and running out of love. At those points I’ve felt, ‘I’ve got to be strong…I’ve got to buck up and put on a brave face.” What God really wants me to do in these moments is cry out to Him for help—and that this is actually a wonderful place to be. A place of vulnerability and weakness. That place should make us turn to God –that’s the correct response to those moments. I love singing this song because to me it’s an essential thought of the Christian life… ‘God help me..I’m not enough!’” - Rebecca St. James
