The Hurt & The Healer

As I sit here I am listening to a song (lyrics below) that has been very impactful in my recent journey toward recovering from addiction to selfishness, listening to Satan's lies, and living within that deceit. I'm a bee-boppin' kind of girl, which means I like many genres of music...music reaches into my soul--especially those places where I tend to be poetic, romantic, dreamy, spiritual, intense. At this current time I am limiting myself to worship music because I want the input in my life to point toward heaven and Jesus and nowhere else. I just happen to know where my weaknesses are, so this is an area of my life I have had to do an about-face on. I have an accountability person in place to help me with this struggle as well.
All to say, will you read these lyrics to the MercyMe song, The Hurt & The Healer? If you are struggling, let the words, the truth, seep into your marrow and the recesses of your mind. 

I hope you've had a blessed weekend!

Thanks for liking my outfit from the last post. :-)
"The Hurt & The Healer"

Why?
The question that is never far away
The healing doesn’t come from the explained
Jesus please don’t let this go in vain
You’re all I have
All that remains

So here I am
What’s left of me
Where glory meets my suffering

I’m alive
Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
I’ve fallen into Your arms open wide
When the hurt and the healer collide

Breathe
Sometimes I feel it’s all that I can do
Pain so deep that I can hardly move
Just keep my eyes completely fixed on You
Lord take hold and pull me through

So here I am
What’s left of me
Where glory meets my suffering

I’m alive
Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
I’ve fallen into your arms open wide
When the hurt and the healer collide

It’s the moment when humanity
Is overcome by majesty
When grace is ushered in for good
And all our scars are understood
When mercy takes its rightful place
And all these questions fade away
When out of the weakness we must bow
And hear You say “It’s over now”

I’m alive
Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
I’ve fallen into your arms open wide
When The hurt and the healer collide

Jesus come and break my fear
Awake my heart and take my tears
Find Your glory even here
When the hurt and the healer collide [x2]

Jesus come and break my fear
Awake my heart and take my tears
Find Your glory even here
Lastly, it's my prayer that none of you have lost any loved ones as a result of the Colorado theater killings. My heart is broken for the victims and families and I'm begging God that this will draw people closer to him, not farther.

Beautiful children. Beautiful song. "Find your glory, even here." So beautiful that He has made us to carry His image. What riches He has lavished on us, made out of dust. He is good and He is light, keep looking to Him friend.

This song has been my anthem lately. Love every line. They so capture the reality of our struggles and the power of being connected to the only One who can heal. Love reading what you write...sorry I don't comment more.
