Let Me Understand

letmeunderstandWe just got back from a great marriage retreat weekend with the Coastal LA family of churches.  Rick and Heather Mekemson were our guest speakers and did an amazing job of vulnerably sharing their journey of marital struggle and the miracle story of God healing their marriage and making it stronger than ever before.  It was all topped off with the close of the sermon yesterday when Rick shared powerfully about Jesus in our lives as our advocate (I John 2:1); speaking in our defense even now.  After he prayed for communion he showed a slide show of 35 messages from God to us – it was so encouraging and really ministered to all of us, daily assaulted by Satan’s accusations (Revelation 12:10).

It reminded me of this song, “Let Me Understand,” and I thought I’d share it today.  It’s from an album I put tother several years back of songs all from the perspective of Jesus speaking to his followers.  This song in particular is from his perspective as the advocate, speaking up for us, able to “empathize with us in our weakness” (Hebrews 4:15).  Hope it encourages you!

Let Me Understand

 

LET ME UNDERSTAND

Hush little child
No need to cry now
You’re crushed and you’re tired
Take my peace
Cause now and always
I’m with you and I’ve been through
The ups and downs you’re feeling
Be strong, carry on
The struggle will only make you stronger

Daily I speak in your defense
I’m with you even when you
don’t feel me with you
And though you may be put to the test
Here I am – let me understand

Whatever you might be feeling
If ever your heart is bleeding
Whenever your soul needs healing
Here I am, let me understand

The road is long
The path is narrow
But in me you’re strong
My yoke is easy
And if you only really knew
What lies in store for you
It’s better, and it’s brighter
And it’s fuller than you’d ever imagine

Daily I speak in your defense
I’m with you even when you
don’t think you see me
And though you may be put to the test
Here I am – let me understand

Whatever you might be feeling
If ever your heart is bleeding
Whenever your soul needs healing
Here I am, let me understand

Sometimes you deny
My love by your actions
In guilt, think that I
Crucified
Would give up on you
But at your very worst
I love you
Though you cost me all I am
Your love is worth it to me

Daily I speak in your defense
I’m with you even when you
are starting over
And though you may be put to the test
Here I am – let me understand
