Love Lifted Me

17 11 2014

Maui BeachYes, come,” Jesus said. So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted. Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. “You have so little faith,” Jesus said. “Why did you doubt me?”   Matthew 14:29-31

“Love lifted me, Love lifted me, when nothing else could help, Love lifted me”

The words to this song have been a source of encouragement for as long as I can remember.   I can recall my grandfather joining in this congregational song with so much vitality. I believe it was reminder to him and to me about God’s faithfulness and his ability to elevate us from any lowly place. Whether we are discouraged or need the transformative power of salvation, Jesus is able to lift us higher.   It could be that we are facing a personal storm in our life but our God is able to rescue us.   This is a time to trust Him.  This is a time to hold tightly to His hand.  As we put our trust in Him, He is able to lift us from the angry waves. Love can lift us up to take us higher.

I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore, Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more, But the Master of the sea, heard my despairing cry, From the waters lifted me, now safe am I.

“Love lifted me, Love lifted me, when nothing else could help, Love lifted me”

Words James Rowe, Music Howard Smith
