HEAD ABOVE WATER

“Every storm that I have gone through in the past God has brought me out of it alive and every storm that I may go through in the future God will bring me out of it alive because I know He will not let me drown.”

Head Above Water is a song by pop-rock artist Avril Lavigne. It was a song written about her struggle with Lyme disease and so this is the meaning and message of the song. It’s about fighting for your life or fighting to stand up when you’re in a stormy season. Yeah, my life is what I’m fighting for….. For Lavigne, is fighting Lyme disease, for me, for example, it was fighting for a way out in 2014, for everyone or anyone else it can be something else.

The first time I heard this song I immediately put it on repeat and added it to my Spotify playlist, more importantly I could relate to it straightaway. I have felt and experienced the song’s emotions before, especially the chorus and towards the end. God, keep my head above water. Don’t let me drown. It gets harder. I’ll meet You there. At the altar. As I fall down to my knees. Don’t let me drown, drown, drown. Don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me, drown….. And I can’t see in the stormy weather. I can’t seem to keep it all together. And I can’t swim in the ocean like this forever. And I can’t breath….. Somehow, I have survived it all because God has kept me above water this whole time and the credit only goes to Him. Every storm that I have gone through in the past God has brought me out of it alive and every storm that I may go through in the future God will bring me out of it alive because I know He will not let me drown.

Seeing that I really REALLY like this song so so much I tried singing it.

“Somehow, I have survived it all because God has kept me above water this whole time and the credit only goes to Him.”
