Flawless by MercyMe

I’m not a big music fan but there are some songs that help us to get through seasons of our life.  To help inspire, to help give hope, to help with the human experience.   One such song for me is Flawless by MercyMe.  Times get hard, external things out of our control change our lives.  I’m also my own worst critic, and in areas where I would extend mercy to others I don’t with myself.  This song helps me to keep everything in perspective.  The lyrics are the important thing for me not the song.  No matter how down I am on myself, or no matter how hard the trials of life are.  In God’s eyes His truth is I’m flawless, because of Christ work on the Cross.  If you don’t know Christ, I can’t explain to you the power that you get by forfeiting your life to Him.  To lose your life to Him is counted as gain.  There is no other way I can explain it to you other than by turning control of my life over to Him, I have ultimate faith that my life will be used for something of ultimate worth.  His Kingdom!  But remember He doesn’t need me, He accomplished everything already at the Cross. I’m just along for the ride trusting and obeying Him, as He changes me daily.

Lyrics

There’s got to be more
Than going back and forth
From doing right to doing wrong
‘Cause we were taught that’s who we are
Come on get in line right behind me
You along with everybody
Thinking there’s worth in what you do (really the worth is in Christ work at the cross all of my best work is filthy rags in comparison)

Then like a hero who takes the stage when
We’re on the edge of our seats saying it’s too late
Well let me introduce you to amazing grace

No matter the bumps
No matter the bruises
No matter the scars
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless
No matter the hurt
Or how deep the wound is
No matter the pain
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless

Could it possibly be
That we simply can’t believe
That this unconditional
Kind of love would be enough
To take a filthy wretch like this
And wrap him up in righteousness
But that’s exactly what He did (Folks this is exactly why He deserves or praise)

No matter the bumps
No matter the bruises
No matter the scars
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless
No matter the hurt
Or how deep the wound is
No matter the pain
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless

Take a breath smile and say
Right here right now I’m ok
Because the cross was enough

And like a hero who takes the stage when
We’re on the edge of our seats saying it’s too late
Well let me introduce you to grace grace
God’s grace

No matter the bumps
No matter the bruises
No matter the scars
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless
No matter the hurt
Or how deep the wound is
No matter the pain
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless

No matter what they say
Or what you think you are
The day you called His name
He made you flawless
He made you flawless

No matter the bumps
No matter the bruises
No matter the scars
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless
