Face down

Another fear another failure

Just like I was meant to be here

Face down

Drowning in my

Tears of sorrow

Feeling like there’s

no tomorrow

Sometimes I have to fall

face down

Face down

Wishing I could fade to nothing

I’m layin face down

Lift me up, up, up

Without You I am nothing

You pick me up, up, up

When I fall face down

Humbled at Your feet

Crumbled in a heap

of despair and brokenness

You breathe New Life into me

And pick me up, up, up

Give me courage to face

My fears and failures

Hope and grace

to love on strangers

Show Your glory

not my wreckage

Tell my story

to those who need it

Give Your word

that they would heed it

Keep me face down

So You can life me up

Face down

So You can fill my cup

Use my scars

Use my brokenness

That they might know

Your earthly benefits

Hear my cry

That they might be

Face down

To cry for thee

Lift them up, up, up

Mend their hearts

Restore their souls

So they, too, would

Give up control

And fall face down

And on and on it goes

As one by one it flows

Your love reaching all the people

Who are

Face down

I am a musician, an engineer, a mentor; my desire is to leave things better than I found them; I am a sister, daughter, wife, mother, aunt, friend. Suicide breaks my heart; Cancer breaks my heart; Human trafficking breaks my heart; Seeing people make bad life decisions breaks my heart. I am thankful for the One True and Living God who saved me from myself and, through His Son Jesus Christ, has saved from my sins; I am confidently persistent, passionately determined and boldly creative so that I may inspire others to live a life that ultimately matters.
