Help Me Believe ; July 26, 2010

Last night I was listening to all of my music in iTunes, on shuffle, and I ran across this song that I haven't listened to in a couple of years. It's called Help Me Believe, by Nichole Nordeman. The lyrics kind of hit my heart, because they relate to what God has been teaching me lately. So I thought I would post the lyrics here for you.

Take me back to the time,
When I was maybe eight or nine,
And I believed;
When Jesus walked on waters blue,
and if he helped me I could too,
If I believed.

Before rationale, analysis, and systematic thinking
Robbed me of a sweet simplicity.
When wonders, and when mysteries
Were far less often silly dreams
and childhood fantasies.

(Chorus)
Help me believe,
'cause I don't want to miss any miracles.
Maybe I'd see
Much better by closing my eyes.
And I would shed this grown up skin I'm in,
To touch an angel's wing,
And I would be free.
Help me believe.

When mustard seeds made mountains move,
A burning bush that spoke for you
Was good enough.
When manna fell from heavens high
Just because you told the sky to open up.

Am I too wise to recognize that everything uncertain
is certainly a possibility?
When logic fails my reasoning,
And science crushes underneath
The weight of all that is unseen.

(Chorus)

When someone else's education
Plays upon my reservations,
I'm the first to cave,
I'm the first to bleed.
If I abandoned all that seeks
To make my faith informed and chic,
Could you, would you,
Show yourself to me?

(Chorus)
