Watch “Jonathan McReynolds – Limp” on YouTube

If you’ve been with me on this journey, you are well aware of my relationship with music.

If not, here’s a short summary: Music is my lifeline, love language and one of my all-around favorite things.

I’ve shared various songs in the past and will be making a habit of doing that more in this space.

This morning, Jonathan McReynolds’ song, “Limp” is ON REPEAT.

The lyrics have powerful symbolism and descriptive language.

Here are some that REALLY stood out to me this morning (shown in bold, with italics, and/ or underlined for emphasis).


“Jonathan McReynolds – Limp”

[Hey now

It’s a little deep]

I’m tired, broken
Innocence stolen
And I know I’m
A different man

See life hits and life hurts
Think I’ve seen
Some of life’s worst
But you’ve been here
So you understand

See I fell
and I broke something
But I couldn’t tell cause I kept running
Away from your love and grace
So my trips
And my pains
My failures they only make
Me desperate
To seek your face

The devil hoped this injury would make me stop
And take defeat
But I know Jesus walks with me

So I’ll just keep on walking with my limp limp limp limp
Just keep on walking with my limp limp limp limp
Just keep on walking with limp limp limp limp
Just keep on walking with my limp limp limp limp

I’m imperfect, so I slipped up
And I had my heart
ripped up
But you’re the lifter
Of my head
(of my head)
So please come
And please heal
How I think and how I feel
And I’ll live by what you say

And you said
Heavy laden come to me
The sick, the flawed, the lame, the weak
And I’ll be everything you need

So I’ll just keep on walking with my limp limp limp limp
Just keep on walking with my limp limp limp limp
Just keep on walking with my limp limp limp limp
just keep on walking with my limp limp limp limp

Limps are
Every weakness
Limps are every flaw
That keeps us from having
An otherwise perfect walk
And we were born
Handicapped
But God gives us strength back
And all that you lack
If you just keep on walking with your limp

I’ll pursue, victory
Cause when they beat you
You look just like me πŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎ
You were struggling with your passion
And your love
It kept you walking with your limp
Calvary walking with your limp πŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ’–

No matter what they said you kept walking with your limp
Yea that’s my savior with his limp πŸ’“

Just so one day
I could walk with my limp limp limp limp
And I could still be loved
even with my limp limp limp limp

And I could still be used even with my limp limp limp limp
and I could still be saved even with my limp

So I’ll just keep on walking with my limp…
