By The Grace Of God - Katy Perry



The Experience: Found I wasn't so tough... Katy Perry hurt so bad, couldn't take it anymore. SomeOne stepped in to let her know I am enough, possible to be loved again. How? Only by the grace of God.   

The Video: Waiting.  

My Take: The meaning of By The Grace Of God is about the fallout after Katy's marriage with Russell Brand ended. Katy confessed she felt bad, felt the fault was all mine. She even felt suicidal, couldn't take it anymore. Coming out of tragedy is only possible by love. Yes, she has to say I thank my sister for her supporting love. But above all, Katy thanks the grace of God. God's love made her know I am enough, possible to be loved. 'Cause God always loves us. His Love can pull us out of anything. That's why His Truth will set you free.   

Ask Yourself: Do I believe I can succeed in anything - by the grace of God?

LYRICS:
Was 27 surviving my return to Saturn
A long vacation didn't sound so bad
Was full of secrets locked up tight like iron melting
Running on empty, so out of gas

Thought I wasn't enough
Found I wasn't so tough
Laying on the bathroom floor
We were living on a fault line
And I felt the fault was all mine
Couldn't take it anymore 

By the grace of God
I picked myself back up
I put one foot in front of the other
And I looked in the mirror and decided to stay
Wasn't gonna let love take me up that way

I thank my sister
For keeping my head above the water
When the truth was like swallowing sand
Now every morning hope
There is no more mourning
Oh I can finally see myself again
I know I am enough
Possible to be loved
It was not about me

Now I have to rise above
Let the universe call my bluff
Yeah the truth will set you free 

By the grace of God
I picked myself back up
I put one foot in front of the other
And I looked in the mirror and decided to stay
Wasn't gonna let love take me up that way

There ain't no
There ain't no
Not in the name
In the name of love
That way no
There ain't no
I am not giving up

By the grace of God
I picked myself back up
I put one foot in front of the other
And I looked in the mirror

By the grace of God
I picked myself back up
I put one foot in front of the other
And I looked in the mirror and decided to stay
Wasn't gonna let love take me up that way
