Human - Jon McLaughlin

There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.

But God shows his love for us while we were still sinners. Christ died for us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 

Because, if we confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in our heart that God raised him from the dead, we will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.

For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. 

For when I am weak, then I am strong.
- Proverbs 14:12, 1 John 1:9, Romans 5:8, Romans 10:9-10,13, 2 Corinthians 12:9-10


You never know how much you need God until God is all you've got left. 

Sometimes you think you're strong enough to take the world, young enough to brave the oceans and wise enough to get through the labyrinth of life. Experience all those ups and highs, accomplish this and that, till the lightning strikes and turns things into ashes.

Even worse when the lightning is followed by the storm. Stay there long enough until you realise that God is the only hope you can cling onto. There's so much you can do about you and your life, but at the end of the day, God gives, and God takes.

God gives, and God takes. When things are meant to be taken away.. just be confident that our Father in heaven knows the best. He got the blueprint of life and He's the real Mr Know it all.

So when you're up there, remember that God will bless you according to your own capacity. He'll never give more than you can take. For what good is a happy life when you lose your soul?

And when you're down there, and I mean, really, really, really, really, REALLY down there. Remember that God never takes anything away just for fun sake. But thankfully, these are the moments where I can feel so much closer to God and so much grateful of the people He puts in my life. I think it goes the same to the general population - easier to stick to God during the downtimes.

Everyone makes mistakes. Everyone of us can only take a certain amount of heartache in life. We're only human, afterall.




Jon McLaughlin - Human

Can you tell me how we got in this situation
I can't seem to get you off my mind
All these ups and downs they
They trip up our good intentions
Nobody said this was an easy ride

After all, we're only human
Always fighting what we're feeling
Hurt instead of healing
After all we're only human
Is there any other reason
Why we stay instead of leaving
After all

Can we get back to the point in this conversation
Where we saw things through each other's eyes
Cause now all I see is ruin and devastation
We all need some place we can hide inside

After all, we're only human
Always fighting what we're feeling
Hurt instead of healing
After all we're only human
Is there any other reason
Why we stay instead of leaving

I'm smart enough to know that life goes by
And it leaves a trail of broken hearts behind
If you feel I'm letting go, just give me time
I'll come running to your side
Can you tell me how we got into this situation
I can't seem to get you off my mind

After all, we're only human
Always fighting what we're feeling
Hurt instead of healing
After all we're only human
Is there any other human [2x]
