Do It Again

"He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us." (2 Corinthians 1:10)

I love the song 'Do It Again' by Elevation Worship. However, it is admittedly an extra-emotional walk through the journey of my life…

"Walking around these walls – I thought by now they'd fall. But you have never failed me yet." – And I get taken back to the four walls in my bedroom in NJ and the depression I battled for years in the 90s, clinging to the hope that the Lord would one day help me break free.

"Waiting for change to come – knowing the battle’s won. For you have never failed me yet." – And I get taken back to 2006 praying for the Lord to end all the months of suffering for my Dad and Grandmother, and take them to a better life.

"I know the night won’t last – your word will come to pass. My heart will sing your praise again." – And I get taken back to those long days in 2015 when I was feeling lost spiritually, mentally, and physically - clinging to the hope that the Lord would one day restore me.

"I've seen you move, you move the mountains - and I believe, I'll see you do it again. You made a way, where there was no way - and I believe, I'll see you do it again." - And just as the sorrow of those memories start to overwhelm me, the music perks up and these lyrics remind me of His amazing work in the past. Through every trial and every doubt that maybe the mountain was just too high this time, there was always the hope and knowledge that somehow and some way He would step in at just the right time and save me…again.
