Darkness Praise #5: Heal the Wound

Have you ever been around someone that had a scar that they wanted to show you?  But it wasn't just that they wanted you to see the scar, they had a story they wanted to tell that accompanied that scar.

Scars tell stories, don't they?

Stories of:  Pain.  Hurt.  Bleeding.

Stories of:  Overcoming.  Healing.

That transformation from wound to scar takes time.  And I sometimes wonder if that isn't often the hardest part?...

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 places that 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


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


Leave the scar
