I’m In Need of Resurrection-Nicole Sponberg

Posted by Scott on March 14, 2009

I’’m at a loss for words, there’’s nothing to say
I sit in silence wondering what led me to this place
How did my heart become so lifeless and cold
Where did the passion go?

When all my efforts seem like chasing wind
I’’ve used up all my strength and there’’s nothing left to give
I’’ve lost the feeling and I’’m numb to the core
Can’’t fake it anymore

Here I am at the end I’’m in need of resurrection
Only you can take this empty shell and raise it from the dead
What I’’ve lost to the world what seems far beyond redemption
You can take the pieces in your hand and make me whole again

I’’m at a loss for words, there’’s nothing to say
I’’ve used up all my strength and there’’s nothing left to give
How did my heart become so lifeless and cold
Can’’t fake it anymore

Here I am once again I’’m in need of resurrection
Only you can take this empty shell and raise it from the dead
What I’’ve lost to the world what seems far beyond redemption
You can take the pieces in your hand and make me whole again

You can take the pieces in your hand and make me whole again

    Nicole,

    I know the feeling of being low, and the temptation of self-pity. I sometimes hit low-points myself. This weekend, in my job search, I got to the point yesterday, where I was just tired – just really tired of the effort…of feeling unappreciated in the past work I’ve done; or feeling overwhelmed at the task of finding a new job; of seeking the Lord, “earnestly” (NIV) “diligently” (NKJV) “sincerely” (NLT) – Hebrews 11:6 …yet, not hearing clear direction.

    I recently read in Isaiah 50:10 (NIV) “Who among you fears the LORD and obeys the word of his servant? Let him who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the LORD and rely on his God.”

    I know there are no easy answers. I’ll pray for you, that God will ‘resurrect’ hope and ‘life’ in you. Please pray the same for me, as well. A recent verse I read, in the New American Bible version, said this: “Trust in the kindness of God forever and ever” (Psalm 52:8, NAB)

    I pray we trust in His kindness, even when we don’t understand.

    “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight [will direct your paths].”
    — Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV

    “The LORD watches over you— the LORD is your shade at your right hand” — Ps 121:5 NIV

      Well, I am Scott…Nicole is the author of that song that is on the radio. I am not that low actually. Although I am on unemployment and looking vigorously for new employment, I am rather upbeat and cheerful…the joy of the Lord is my strength. At the moment my family and I are behind the scaffold of life as the Lord does His mighty work in our lives…when we emerge someday from behind the scaffolding what a terrific piece of work we will be.

      Right now, the Lord is doing some of His greatest work in our life, but at times we wonder if He is there, but then we realize that most of His great work is done in secret and unknown until the finished product is complete. We don’t know where this work will be complete, but I can rest assured that it will be for a greater good and His eternal glory. Thanks for the words though.

      Pressing on in Christ,
      Scott

    I remain daily in need of resurrection of who he wants me to be. I am at awe of what he is doing in my life today, he is not finished with me (us) yet. I want to know him more. The holy spirit is all over me when I hear this song.
