I love this song because it reminds me of what God did for me.
When I was 13, I came close to committing suicide. I was in a deep depression.
One night I was standing in the bathroom with a razor in my hand. I felt like I was in a trance and couldnt think clearly. Suddenly I snapped out of it. The only thing I can think of is that someone must have been praying for me at that moment. I realized what I was doing and it scared me. I ended up dropping the razor and leaving the bathroom. God since then has lead me to freedom from depression.
One night a couple of years ago I was ready to go to sleep when suddenly this image of my wrists being slashed flashed in my mind. It startled me and I wondered why It came to mind. I was happy and had not thought of that time of my life in a long time. I thought to my self "Devil you never got me to hurt myself that night and you never will." Just as soon as I thought that the image of my cut wrists dissapeared and the image of Jesus' nail scared hands took its place.
It made Isaiah 53 come to life in my mind.
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Jesus took my place so I would never harm myself.
" I am here today becasue God kept me"
"I am alive today because of His grace"
