Music Speaks: Hero

27 Jan

Hero
Skillet

I’m just a step away
I’m just a breath away
Losing my faith today
(Falling off the edge today)

I am just a man
Not superhuman
(I’m not superhuman)
Someone save me from the hate

It’s just another war
Just another family torn
(Falling from my faith today)
Just a step from the edge
Just another day in the world we live

I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero
(Save me now)
I need a hero to save my life
A hero’ll save me
(Just in time)

I gotta fight today
To live another day
Speaking my mind today 
(My voice will be heard today)

I’ve gotta make a stand
But I am just a man
(I’m not superhuman)
My voice will be heard today

It’s just another war
Just another family torn
(My voice will be heard today)
It’s just another kill
The countdown begins to destroy ourselves

Who’s gonna fight for what’s right
Who’s gonna help us survive

We’re in the fight of our lives

(And we’re not ready to die)

Who’s gonna fight for the wear
Who’s gonna make ’em believe
I’ve got a hero
(I’ve got a hero)

Living in me

I’m gonna fight for what’s right
Today I’m speaking my mind

And if it kills me tonight

(I will be ready to die)
A hero’s not afraid to give his life
A hero’s gonna save me just in time

Everyone is always looking for the person to play the role of the “hero” in their lives; always looking for the “hero” to save them from whatever it is that they are lost in, whether it be addiction, pain, loneliness or any other kind of general darkness.

I myself am no exception to this. I’ve spent much of my life looking for who or whatever I “needed” to fix everything for me. Even after I found God, the habits of my former-self crept into my head and convinced me that I needed help, and it took me a while to discover where that help really needed to come from.

I’ve spent the past year looking for “help”, looking for my “hero”, someone to “fix” my problems. It took me just over a year before I was finally ready for God to remind me that I already had a Hero. He is my Hero. There is One Man who has given His life for me, and for you. There is ONE who has the power to do absolutely anything.

It took me a year to realize that I didn’t need help…I already had all the help I could ask for. Once I acknowledged that truth, my life has been so much fuller and, dare I say, simpler. Upon taking the time to truly embrace my Hero as being such, my stress and anxiety levels have all dropped dramatically, not because of anything I have done, but because of Him.

Not to in any way detract from the usefulness of doctors and health professionals, but in my case, they were not the answer that I needed. They could not “fix” what I deal with.
There is one truth and that is what Jesus said in Mark 10:27,

“With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”

    Indeed, “My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth” (Psalm 121:2 GW). And even if it comes as another person (for me the right doctor at the right time or else I would already be in heaven, in one case) it still comes from Creator. I like the way you worded this article. Peace!

      Very good point. He created those doctors for reasons and He gifted them the way He did for a reason.
      Thanks for the comment!
