Healing Begins

These are the lyrics of a song by Tenth Avenue North.  They really describe the process I began two years ago when I started to take off the mask that I had been wearing all my life.  I had spent all my life being brave and I had buried a lot of  pain and brokenness that I needed to get out of me before I moved on with the rest of my life.  James 5:16 says, “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.”  It doesn’t say it bring forgiveness, only God can do that.  But confession and being real with the people around you brings healing.  I hope and pray that you have those people around you who can see you at your worst and still believe the best.

 

So you thought you had to keep this up

All the work that you do

So we think that you’re good

And you can’t believe it’s not enough

All the walls you built up

Are just glass on the outside

 

So let them fall down

There’s freedom waiting in the sound

When you let your walls fall to the ground

We’re here now

 

This is where the healing begins oh

This is where the healing starts

When you come to where you’re broken within

The light meets the dark

The light meets the dark

 

Afraid to let your secrets out

Everything that you hide

Can come crashing through the door now

But too scared to face all your fear

So you hide but you find

That the shame won’t disappear

 

So let it fall down

There’s freedom waiting in the sound

When you let your walls fall to the ground

We’re here now

 

Sparks will fly as grace collides

With the dark inside of us

So please don’t fight

This coming light

Let this blood come cover us

His blood can cover us
