Inspiration For Today – July 19

I am who I am, accept me, reject me but I'm still me.

The inspiration for today, July 19, comes from MercyMe and the song You Are I Am.

When was the last time you thought about God and who He is? What would God say about the way we live our lives? Is your life an open book or are there chapters that have been locked up so that no one can see? Remember, God knows and He cares.

and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Song For Today – MercyMe | You Are I Am

Download You Are I Am by MercyMe now from the album The Hurt & The Healer.

Who Is MercyMe?

MercyMe was formed in 1994 in Greenville, Texas. It was on a trip to Switzerland with a youth group’s worship band that Bart Millard and James Bryson seriously considered playing music on a full-time basis.

The name MercyMe came thanks to the concern of Bart’s grandmother. It seemed that whenever she called he was at home at which time she would exclaim, “Well mercy me, why don’t you get a real job?”

After the production of the album containing this song, The Hurt & The Healer, James Bryson took a leave of absence from MercyMe.

Story Behind The Song – You Are I Am by MercyMe

You Are I Am Lyrics

I’ve been the one
To shake with fear
And wonder if
You’re even here

I’ve been the one
To doubt Your love
I’ve told myself
You’re not enough

I’ve been the one
To try and say
I’ll overcome
By my own strength

I’ve been the one
To fall apart
And start to question
Who You are

You’re the one who conquers giants
You’re the one who calls out kings
You shut the mouths of lions
You tell the dead to breathe
You’re the one who walks through fire
You take the orphan’s hand
You are the one Messiah
You are I am

I’ve been the one
Held down in chains
Beneath the weight
Of all my shame

I’ve been the one
To believe
That where I am
You cannot reach

You’re the one who conquers giants
You’re the one who calls out kings
You shut the mouths of lions
You tell the dead to breathe
You’re the one who walks through fire
You take the orphan’s hand
You are the one Messiah
You are I am
You are I am

The veil is torn
And now I live
With the spirit inside
The same one
The very same one
Who brought the son
Back to life

Hallelujah, He lives in me
Hallelujah, He lives in me
Hallelujah, He lives in me
Hallelujah, He lives in me

You’re the one who conquers giants
You’re the one who calls out kings
You shut the mouths of lions
You tell the dead to breathe
You’re the one who walks through fire
You take the orphan’s hand
You are the one Messiah
You are I am
(Hallelujah, He lives in me)
You are I am
(Hallelujah, He lives in me)
