Breaking, Tearing, Splitting, Healing

26 May

You know how sometimes you’re listening to a song, and you’re like, “Oh my goodness, this song is ME!!!!!”. The song below truly is the motto for my life right now.

Do you wonder why you have to,
feel the things that hurt you,
if there’s a God who loves you,
where is He now?

Maybe, there are things you can’t see
and all those things are happening
to bring a better ending

some day, some how, you’ll see, you’ll see

Chorus:
Would dare you, would you dare, to believe,
that you still have a reason to sing,
’cause the pain you’ve been feeling,
can’t compare to the joy that’s coming

so hold on, you got to wait for the light
press on, just fight the good fight
because the pain you’ve been feeling,
it’s just the dark before the morning

My friend, you know how this all ends
and you know where you’re going,
you just don’t know how you get there
so just say a prayer.
and hold on, cause there’s good who love God,
life is not a snapshot, it might take a little time,
but you’ll see the bigger picture

Would dare you, would you dare, to believe,
that you still have a reason to sing,
’cause the pain you’ve been feeling,
can’t compare to the joy that’s coming

so hold on, you got to wait for the light
press on, just fight the good fight
because the pain you’ve been feeling,
it’s just the dark before the morning
yeah, yeah,
before the morning,
yeah, yeah

Once you feel the way of glory,
all your pain will fade to memory
once you feel the way of glory,
all your pain will fade to memory
memory, memory, yeah

Would dare you, would you dare, to believe,
that you still have a reason to sing,
’cause the pain you’ve been feeling,
can’t compare to the joy that’s coming

Would dare you, would you dare, to believe,
that you still have a reason to sing,
’cause the pain you’ve been feeling,
can’t compare to the joy that’s coming

com’n, you got to wait for the light
press on, just fight the good fight

because the pain you’ve been feeling,
it’s just the hurt before the healing

because the pain you’ve been feeling,
its just the dark before the morning
before the morning, yeah, yeah
before the morning

Open wound healing is a weird thing. You’re never so aware of what your body does until you experience it. I can feel my skin growing, expanding, attaching, breaking, tearing. I feel it healing, I feel it not. You don’t think about it when you cut your finger and wait for it to heal, but growing skin is actually incredibly painful.

I know I am learning from this. In Psalm 27, David teaches us to suffer. He says: Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD. (Psalm 27:14) In the midst of suffering, heartache, and attack, David was wise and would praise the Lord! I know that someday we will be in a place with no pain. No aches. No gauze changes. No silver nitrate. We will be whole and happy, and standing beside Jesus in His Kingdom!
