​I Know Where I Stand

This song is by Bruce Carroll, features Vince Gill and appears on the album Sometimes Miracles Hide (1991) and on the compilation For The Record (1997).

Just like an actor, unsure of my lines
I lived my life for other people, one lie at a time
Desperate for approval, always trying to look good
Never sure of who I was or where I stood
Until You came into my heart, and exposed me with Your light
'Til You touched me with Your love, and You healed me with Your life

I know where I stand, I'm strong and secure
I finally know who I am, I'm myself and I'm Yours
When I stand on Your promise, I always stand tall
Even when I fall, I know where I stand

So good to be real now, to know and be known
Resting in Your perfect love, my heart is finally home
Completely forgiven of all that I've done
Now I'm living my life for an audience of one
I'm finally sure of who I am, and I'm sure of who I'm not
The insecurities are gone, 'cause now I live on the rock

I know where I stand, I'm strong and secure
I finally know who I am, I'm myself and I'm Yours
When I stand on Your promise, I always stand tall
Even when I fall, I know where I stand

I no longer live my life by what other people say
Lord, I only live for You, 'cause Your love will never change
And though people let me down, You will never turn away
No, You'll never turn away

That's why I know where I stand, I'm strong and secure
I finally know who I am, I'm myself and I'm Yours
When I stand on Your promise, I always stand tall
Even when I fall, I know where I stand
