Beautiful Words....

I will blog later about actual life stuff, but I wanted to share this....

I heard this song today and it touched my heart in such a big way. I wanted to share the lyrics....

Heal the Wound by Point of Grace

I used to wish that I could rewrite history
I used to dream that each mistake could be erased
Then I could just pretend
I never knew me back then

I used to pray that You would take this shame away
Hide all the evidence of who I've been
But it's the memory of
The place You brought me from
That keeps me on my knees
And even though I'm free

Heal the wound but leave the scar
A reminder of how merciful You are
I am broken, torn apart
Take the pieces of this heart
And heal the wound but leave the scar

I have not lived a life that boasts of anything
I don't take pride in what I bring
But I'll build an altar with
The rubble that You've found me in
And every stone will sing
Of what You can redeem

Heal the wound but leave the scar
A reminder of how merciful You are
I am broken, torn apart
Take the pieces of this heart
And heal the wound but leave the scar

Don't let me forget
Everything You've done for me
Don't let me forget
The beauty in the suffering

Heal the wound but leave the scar
A reminder of how merciful You are
I am broken, torn apart
Take the pieces of this heart
And heal the wound but leave the scar


WOW! What a message! I know that we have things in the past that have either been done to us or that we have done to ourselves that we wish we could just erase. If they are just erased how will we ever know the true meaning of mercy...mercy that Jesus gives us. I absolutely love the lyrics to this song....I too am someone who has had a broken heart and am thankful for the scars....no matter how painful the wounds have been!

Be blessed.....

What a beautiful song!!! I think we can all relate to being broken. Thankfully God uses our brokenness and makes something beautiful....
