Undo what I’ve become

Standard

“To label me a hypocrite would only scratch the surface of who I’ve been known to be.” ~ Undo by Rush of Fools

Do you ever get to the end of your day and really not like who you see in the mirror? The last couple days I have been mean spirited, rude, unkind, grumpy, grouchy, picky, impatient …all with the people I love the most. What is wrong with me?! Life can be so overwhelming. I do not have the most difficult of circumstances…yes life is hard, but I am not the only one and yet sometimes I find myself living in this vacuum of complete and total self focus. My friend Krystal was here for an hour today and I am not even sure if I asked her any questions! (Please forgive me, Krystal!) All I did do was vent, rant and generally complain. And now my spirit needs a good cleansing!

This is the passage my eyes fell upon today, when asking God to speak to me:

Come all you who are thirsty, come to the waters, and you have have no money come buy and eat! Come buy wine (Note to self: NOT whine) and milk without money and without cost. Listen, Listen to me and eat what is good and your soul will delight in the richest of fare. Issiah 55:1-2

God, I so need your forgiveness and grace. Please fill my cup when it is empty. Undo the things I can’t undo myself.

Undo by Rush of Fools

I’ve been here before, now here I am again
Standing at the door, praying You’ll let me back in
To label me a prodigal would be
Only scratching the surface of who I’ve been known to be

[Chorus]
Turn me around pick me up
Undo what I’ve become
Bring me back to the place
Of forgiveness and grace
I need You, need Your help
I can’t do this myself
You�re the only one who can undo
What I’ve become

I focused on the score, but I could never win
Trying to ignore, a life of hiding my sin
To label me a hypocrite would be
Only scratching the surface of who I’ve been known to be

[Chorus]
Turn me around pick me up
Undo what I’ve become
Bring me back to the place
Of forgiveness and grace
I need You, need Your help
I can’t do this myself
You’re the only one who can undo
What I’ve become

Make every step lead me back to
The sovereign way that You

[Chorus]
Turn me around pick me up
Undo what I’ve become
Bring me back to the place
Of forgiveness and grace
I need You, need Your help
I can’t do this myself
You’re the only one who can undo
What I’ve become

  1. God is so good. As I’ve been surfing blogs today, I keep finding that I’m not the only one out there that is unhappy with what they see in themselves. However, you’re the second one I have found that has been grabbed by the same song God was seemingly haunting me with. Thank the Lord for Undo by Rush of Fools. I guess it helps to know that this is the same story retold in so many people’s lives, and that I haven’t surprised him when I lash out in unGodly ways…and that He is still waiting with grace. It reminds me of a song by John Mark McMillan…”I don’t have time to maintain these regrets when I think about the way He loves us…oh, how He loves us…” Like you said, we just have to realize that life is not about us. Thank you for your post!
