The Hurt and the Healer

I haven’t had a lot of time to blog lately because life has been changing in different ways.  Business has taken over in some areas and left no time for writing.  But, I have been wanting to share some songs that I really love and here is one of them!  The first clip is about the songs story.  The second is the music video.  After that are the words…It is a really great song.  Hope you enjoy as much as I do!


This is pretty neat…


Official Video of Mercy Me singing “Hurt and the Healer”

“The Hurt & The Healer” By MERCYME

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 the 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

“We Have Seen His Glory”

This song always moves me.  I would love it if you could hit the play button below and scroll down to read the words along.  God is good!  He is truly amazing! Hope you enjoy the song.  (I “bolded” some phrases that are especially meaningful to me)

He fed the thousands who did not have bread (Luke 9:10-17)
I saw him bringing people back from the dead (Luke 8:49-56)
He drove out demons from the demon-bound (Luke 8:26-39)
And taught us how to walk on holy ground

He made the leper’s skin like new (Luke 17:11-19)
The storm dissipated when he told it to (Luke 8:22-25)
Took jars of water turned it into wine (John 2:1-11)
The Savior even healed this heart of mine

Chorus:
We have seen His glory
We have seen His glory
We have seen His glory
The one and only son

I was there the day when the dove came down (Matthew 3:16-17)
Saw soldiers with thorns to make His crown (Matthew 27:28-29)
Felt the whole earth quake, darkness on the land (Matthew 27:51-55)
After he was dead, he came to life again (Matthew 28:2-10)

I was there when he said that he couldn’t stay
Was on the Mount of Olives watching Him fly away (Luke 24:44-53)
In the upper room with power, the Spirit came
To give us guidance as we declare His name

Repete Chorus

I see how he works in our lives today
Through the things not explained any other way
I have known his guidance and I understand
The contentment shown by His loving hand

I can see Him working in His family
Who are clearly following their destiny
I can feel his power in their unending love
An awesome power coming from above… above

Repete Chorus

We have seen the glory of the Son

A New Year

The new year is here! Here are some things I want to do this year:
Read my Bible completely, in one year’s time. (I actually started this one on December 15th.  Trying to be the early bird, I guess.)  I want to grow closer to God this year, more than ever before and ONE of the ways I want to do that is by reading, studying and learning the Word of God.

Read at least a book a month.  -This one is a continuation from 2012.  I made the same resolution and….COMPLETED it! Actually, I read well over 12 books.  But it is a goal I like to always have for myself.

Have a special day each month where I specifically give to others.  Whether it be going to the nursing home with my little boy, to visit or pass out treats; or, dropping off lunch to someone while they’re at work.  Something thoughtful and something that is giving (of myself and my time).  I really want this to be more often than once a month but I also want to set realistic goals for myself.  I think this is such an important one for me to be an example to my little boy.

Of course, I have general goals as well but nothing specific.  Just things like: be the best wife I can be.  Forgive others when I’m wronged.  Be a true friend.  Listen more.  Be more positive.  Things like that…things that are always ongoing.  Because as the song goes “He’s still working on me, to make me what I outta be”.  I am a piece of clay, still yet to be seen what shape I will end up as.  But, I hope it’s something useful, something of value to Him.    Happy new year everyone!
