Soundtrack

Every now and then a song comes along that just sticks with you.  This song popped up in my shuffle this morning and brought me great joy.  I think it will be one that I always go back to and one that reminds me of who I am in Christ and the potential we have as a people to please Him and love one another:


Jill Phillips — "Steel Bars"


So this is how it feels at the rock bottom of despair
When the house I built comes crashing down
And this is how it feels when I know the man that I say I am
Is not the man that I am when no one’s around
This is how it feels to come alive again
And start fighting back to gain control And this is how it feels to let freedom in And break these chains that enslave my soul

CHORUS:
I refuse to be locked up in here like a prison
cell Where all I ever get is a meal and four walls
I used to be just fine in here but not anymore
Gonna break through these steel bars

So tell me how it feels when the tables start to turn
And you find yourself at the losing end
Tell me how it feels, you’re not welcome
here ‘Cause I’m tired of pain and I’m tired of sin 


CHORUS
I won’t let you win
I have no doubt
I don’t want you in
So get out, get out

CHORUS
I refuse to be
locked up in here like a prison cell
Where all I ever get
is a meal and four walls
I used to be just fine in here
but not anymore
Gonna break through these steel bars
