THURSDAY TUNE #2: The Upside of Down

I’ve listened to this song at least 10 times a day for the past month (since the first time I learned about it). :) The Upside of Down by Chris August — one of the most uplifting songs I’ve heard this year.

 

The downside of being up is my inside is empty of

the one thing my heart truly needs

When I feel invincible

a million miles from miserable

It’s always all about me.

I don’t know why I don’t love You like I should,

like You would through bad and good, oh,

[Chorus:]

Funny how we figure out where happiness is found

In the midst of this sadness I’m closer to You now

And that’s the upside of down,

the upside of down

It’s all switched around,

I lost and I found the upside of down.

You are more in my less, You are strength in my weakness

I’ll never go back again

And then Your sunshine ends the rain

and I return to my old ways

Why am I a fair weather friend?

I wanna be the one to love You like I should,

like You would through the bad and good, oh,

Funny how we figure out where happiness is found

In the midst of this sadness I’m closer to You now

That’s the upside of tragedies

knowing You’re holding my heart always, always

I may be down but I’m finding there’s joy in the pain, in the pain

Funny how we figure out where happiness is found

In the midst of this sadness I’m closer,

I’m closer to You now and oh

[Chorus]
The upside of down It’s all switched around,

I lost and I found the upside of down

The Upside of Down by Chris August :)

 

Psalm 16:11 “You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is FULLNESS OF JOY; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.”

THURSDAY TUNE #1: All the Broken Pieces

2 Corinthians 12:9

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

THURSDAY TUNE#1: All the Broken Pieces by Matthew West

Did you feel, feel it break
From all the weight of your mistake?
You never knew how much it cost
Feels like your innocence is lost
So much for the perfect life
So much for the perfect day
It’s like no matter how you try
Perfection’s just too far away
So lift them up to Me

All the broken pieces
All the broken pieces of your life
All the broken pieces
All the broken pieces of your life

Did you hear what I said?
Did you read the words I wrote down in red?
I was broken once for you
And no one loves you like I do
And that’s the beauty of this grace
It can put the pieces back in place
And shine reflections of forgiveness
In a million different ways

I can take even your greatest mistake
Every scar, every tear, every break
And I can turn it in to something more beautiful
Than you have ever seen
So lift them up to Me
