Take Me Away

“Take Me Away”

Barlow Girl

Pushing my way through these crowded streets
Trying not to be swept away
Fighting just to keep this crowd from
Hiding You another day

Jeremiah 2:5
This is what the LORD says: "What fault did your fathers find in me, that they strayed so far from me? They followed worthless idols and became worthless themselves.

So maybe this time I'll find You
And maybe this time I'll push through
To see You today, today

Isaiah 59:9
So justice is far from us, and righteousness does not reach us. We look for light, but all is darkness; for brightness, but we walk in deep shadows.

Won't You take me away
Won't You take me away
'Cause I need some time to get away
Where only You could ever
Take me away, away, away

“O LORD, by your hand save me from such men, from men of this world whose reward is in this life.” Psalm 17:14a

Too many days I've been distracted
Watched these crowds push You away
I'm so tired of feeling empty
Without You I waste these days

"Do not follow the crowd in doing wrong…” Exodus 23:2

So maybe this time I'll find You
Just don't stop calling me to You
And I'll find my way today

So maybe this time I'll find you
Find you today, today

Isaiah 58:8
Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.

We live in a world full of distractions and temptations. It is hard to keep our focus on God when our friends and family are not Christians. We need to trust in God and always keep Him in our thoughts from day to day so we will not “slip away”.

Barlow Girl’s song “Take Me Away” is a great song about the struggles in the lives of Christians. Every day we face peer pressure to sin and disobey God. Our only hope is to look to God and trust that He will cover us with protection and take us away.
