My Go-To Song

Sparrows by Jason Gray

Life. How do you deal with it? What is your escape? Everyone has their own way to deal with it. My escape happens to be music. When I feel like a failure in life, or when I feel that no-one cares, that I’m not important. There is one song that helps me get through. There is one song that helps me ease my worries and helps me get back on track. The song is called Sparrows written by Jason Gray. The first line in his song, hits so close to home when it comes to me. The first line says “You can’t add a single day by worrying.” I know somewhere deep down that this is so true but yet for some reason my mind can’t seem to grasp the reality of it. I try to tell myself to worry less but how do you do that when everything in your life seems to be slipping out of your grasp. When things don’t go well for me, I can’t seem to find it in myself to hand over all the control. This song helps me let some of those worries go. When I listen to this song, I forget everything around me. I forget all of my problems. All of my worries. Everything. I just focus on the lyrics. In the bridge it says the following words “You may feel alone. But you’re not on your own.” Many of us tend to forget that God is with us every step of the way. He is there to help us. If God has the time to care for the birds of the air, don’t you think that He will have time for you? For the person that He created in His image? Yes. I believe that He does have the time and would be glad to help us with anything. We just have to be willing to accept His help. In this song, I am reminded to give it all to God because I am not able to do it on my own.

Sparrows (By:Jason Gray)

 You can’t add a single day by worrying
You’ll worry your life away
Oh don’t worry your life away
You can’t change a single thing by freaking out
It’s just gonna close you in
Oh don’t let the trouble win
___
You may feel alone
But you’re not on your own
___
If He can hold the world He can hold this moment
Not a field or flower escapes His notice
Oh even the sparrow
Knows He holds tomorrow
___
Lean in and it’s hard to miss
Everything can change
When you make it His
Oh He wants to carry it
Carefree in the care of God
When you let it go
You’ll find that He’s enough
Oh you never leave His love
___
You don’t walk alone
___
If He can hold the world He can hold this moment
Not a field or flower escapes His notice
Oh even the sparrow
Knows He holds tomorrow
___
There’s not a single star that’s out of place
There’s nothing broken He can’t remake
If you long for hope when you’re afraid
Oh look at the sparrow
Look at the sparrow
___
If He can hold the world He can hold this moment
Not a field or flower escapes His notice
Oh even the sparrow
Knows He holds tomorrow
Even the sparrow knows
He holds tomorrow
