Day 9: My worship songs over the past year……The Hurt and the Healer…..Mercy Me

This Mercy Me album and more specifically this song came out shortly after Lizz and the boys went home.  Bart Millard had a family member die and out of that grief came this amazing song that spoke to the heart of me and my family.  The words resonate what I was feeling at that moment of this journey.

Why?
The question that is never far away
The healing doesn’t come from being 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 fall 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 fall 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 it’s 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 this heart and breathe it back to life
I fall into your arms open wide
When The hurt and the healer collide

 Jesus come and break my fear
Wake my heart and take my tears
Find Your glory even here
When the hurt and the healer collide

 

And yes, I’m alive….even though a part of me has died.  And I am so thankful that I worship the Healer that can heal my heart.  I have come to understand for me, this healing isn’t miraculaous over night, but a journey.  And he is showing me that there is still glory and blessings to be found along that journey.  And the words are a perfect prayer……and so I pray:  “Jesus come and break my fear, wake my heart and take my tears, find your glory even here…..when the hurt and the healer collide”.

Blessings,

Julie
