in Face Your Fears, Get Courage

When Life Feels Too Hard

I heard one of the most amazing songs yesterday.

Played it on repeat 3 times as I read the liner note lyrics.

And regardless of what you think of Katy Perry as an artist or as a person, this song is a vulnerable and deep expressing of human struggle, suffering and challenges that we ALL go through and hopefully overcome.

The choices that we all have to make in our lives.

So when life feels too hard, this affirmation: I AM ENOUGH has been on the most healing, and empowering mantras for me.

And a song like this, is an anthem to not giving up!

Take a listen to the song & read the lyrics are below.

I’ve highlighted the most poignant lyrics to me.

LYRICS: By The Grace Of God

 

Verse 1:
Was 27 surviving my return of Saturn
A long vacation didn’t sound so bad
Was full of secrets locked up tight like iron mountain
Running on empty so out of gas

Bridge 1:
Thought I wasn’t enough
found I wasn’t so tough
Laying on the bathroom floor
We were living on a fault line
and I felt the fault was all mine
Couldn’t take it anymore

Chorus:
By the grace of God
(There was no other way)
I picked myself back up
(I knew I had to stay)
I put one foot in front of the other and I
Looked in the mirror and decided to stay
Wasn’t gonna let love take me out that way

Verse 2:
I thank my sister for keeping my head above the water
When the truth was like swallowing sand
Now, every morning,I hope there is no more mourning
Oh, I can finally see myself again

Bridge 2:
I know I am enough, possible to be loved
It was not about me
Now I have to rise above
Let the universe call the bluff
Yeah, the truth will set you free

Chorus:
By the grace of God
(There was no other way)
I picked myself back up
(I knew I had to stay)
I put one foot in front of the other and I
Looked in the mirror and decided to stay
Wasn’t gonna let love take me out that way
That way, no, that way no
not in the name, in the name of love
that way, no, that way, no
I am not giving up

Chorus:
By the grace of God
I picked myself back up
I put one foot in front of the other and
I looked in the mirror
(looked in the mirror)
looked in the mirror
(looked in the mirror)
Chorus:
By the grace of God
(There was no other way)
I picked myself back up
(I knew I had to stay)
I put one foot in front of the other and I
Looked in the mirror and decided to stay
Wasn’t gonna let love take me out that way
