Lights will guide you Home

When you try your best, but you don’t succeed.
When you get what you want, but not what you need.
When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep.
[You’re] stuck in reverse.

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace.
When you love someone, but it goes to waste,
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home,
And ignite your bones.
And I will try to fix you.

And high up above or down below
When you’re too in love to let it go.
But if you never try you’ll never know
Just what you’re worth.

Lights will guide you home,
And ignite your bones.
And I will try to fix you.

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace.
Tears stream down your face, and I…

Tears stream down your face.
promise you I will learn from my mistakes.
Tears stream down your face, and I…

Lights will guide you home,
And ignite your bones.
And I will try to fix you.

Coldplay, “Fix You” from X&Y


Yesterday, I discussed this song briefly from my own perspective. I had never considered it from the perspective of God, though. More specifically, today, I will be discussing the meaning of this song from the perspective of Yeshu’a of Nazareth. I will make it personal to myself, but it applies to everyone (at least I think so).

Jesus is telling us that “when you try your best, and you don’t succeed…you’re stuck in reverse.” It’s not that we shouldn’t try. It’s that we shouldn’t try. Let me explain. We aren’t the ones doing the work here, friends.

Jesus already did it.

Jesus already changed the world.

“And the tears came streaming down [his] face when [he lost] something [he couldn’t] replace.” He loved someone, but it went to waste. “Could it be worse?”

The positive aspect of God’s grace is that “light will guide you home, and ignite your bones.” And Jesus will fix you. He’s not just going to try. If you allow him to, he can and will change you into a new creation.

“Look! I am making all things new!”

“And high up above, or down below,” there isn’t anything that can separate us from the love of Jesus.


“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against usHe who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:

“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the futurenor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!

Paul of Tarsus, Romans 8:31-38 (NIV)


This is one of those rare occasions that I prefer the NIV translation because it uses the word “convinced.” I am indeed convinced! Nothing can separate me from the love of God in the Messiah, Yeshu’a of Nazareth! Nothing!

“Lights will guide you home, and ignite your bones.”

And Jesus will fix you.

One Love, One Heart

Peace, Love, and Understanding, friends.
