People Like Me

I heard a song the other day that got my attention because the lyrics described one of my biggest struggles: believing that God could really love me. The lyrics are a good prayer for me and anyone else who might relate.

“People Like Me”
by Mikeschair

What if I told you,
What would you say?
Would you stand by me,
Would you walk away?
What if my walls came down
And you saw everything?All of my weakness,
All of my scars,
All that I’ve hidden
Deep in my heart
For so long
And I’m scared to set it free

[Chorus]
Show me a life that’s broken
Can be redeemed
Show me that you can handle my honesty
And help me to know 
You’ll never let go
Your love won’t ever leave
Show me that grace was made
For people like me

You say I’m forgiven,
Being restored,
But it’s hard to feel it here in this storm
Torn between who I’ve been and who I want to be

Jesus I need you,
Need you to be
Hope in the darkness reaching for me
Out of this doubt,
Lord, help me to believe

[Chorus]

Hold my weak heart
In your strong arms
Give me faith when mine is gone
Only trusting in Your mercy can set free
People like me

Show your arms are open,
Your blood redeems
Show me that you can love
Even me

Show me a life that’s broken
Can be redeemed
Show me that you can handle my honesty
And help me to know
You’ll never let go
Your love won’t ever leave
Show me that grace was made
For people like me
