My Confident Hope

Lift Me Up

I came across this song this morning by Kate Voegele on the new soundtrack for Team USA. This is an amazing song. The bridge of this song was what really stood out to me. It said, “Down and out is overrated, I need to be elevated. Looking up is not enough, I would rather  rise above.” It is time for us to not just look up to God for our help and strength but to rise above. It is easier said than done but God will lift us up if we only allow Him too.

This road is anything but simple,

Twisted like a riddle, I’ve seen High and I’ve seen low.

So loud, the voices of all my doubts,

Telling me to give up, to pack up and leave town.

Even so I had to believe, Impossible means nothing to me,

So can you Lift Me Up?

And Turn the ashes into flames,

‘Cause I have overcome more than words will ever say,

And I’ve been given hope that there’s a light on up the hall,

And that a day will come when the fight is won,

And I think that day had just begun.

Somewhere, everybody starts there,

Counting on a small prayer, lost in a nightmare.

And I’m here, and suddenly it’s so clear,

The struggle through the long years,

It taught me to outrun my fears.

And everything that’s worth having,

Comes with trials worth withstanding.

So can you Lift Me Up?

And turn the ashes into flames,

‘Cause I have overcome more than words will ever say,

And I’ve been given hope that there’s a light on up the hall,

And that a day will come when the fight is won,

And I think that day has just begun.

Oh Lift Me Up, Lift Me up, Lift Me Up

Oh Lift Me Up, Llift me up, Lift Me Up, Oh

Down and out is overrated,

I need to be elevated,

Looking up is not enough,

I would rather rise above, Oh , Oh , Oh.

Chorus

Lift Me Up, Lift Me Up, Lift Me Up.
