You are not hidden
There’s never been a moment
You were forgotten
You are not hopeless
Though you have been broken
Your innocence stolen
I hear you whisper underneath your breath
I hear your SOS, your SOS
I will send out an army to find you
In the middle of the darkest night
I will rescue you
When I first heard Rescue by Lauren Daigle, so may thoughts flooded in my mind. I related to the song in so many ways.
As the son of an alcoholic father and mentally ill mother, the lyric-“Your innocence stolen” spoke to me. For those of us who have experienced abuse of any kind, our innocence is stolen from us.
As someone who lives with chronic illness and depression, the lyric-“Though you have been broken” speak to me. Anyone who struggles with depression, anxiety, or any other mental health issue understand feeling hopeless. Anyone who live with chronic illness certainly understands feeling broken.
I love the lyric- “I hear you whisper underneath your breath. I hear you SOS.” I will never forget the times I could barely whisper a prayer and how Jesus came to me.
I love this song because the focus is not on being broken and staying broken. The focus is on how Jesus will come to us. He will do whatever needs to be done to reach us. He will come to us. He will send his angels. He will rescue us.
Think about it. If Jesus loved us so much that he left heaven to come die for us, certainly he will pursue us to rescue us. 🙂
