healing

how-to-heal-a-broken-heartto heal…that kind of, no certainly, demands a hurt or a pain that needs mended, right?

grief.
betrayal.
abandonment.
loss of identity.
hurt.
pain.
loss.
accusations.
insinuations.
open wounds.
sting of words.

needing….restoration, mending, reviving, repairing, soothing

 I’m tired, I’m worn
My heart is heavy
From the work it takes
To keep on  breathing
– Tenth Avenue North

ever been there?
worn…needing redemption
seemingly just trying to breathe.

yeah, me too.

 Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That You can mend  a heart that’s frail and torn
– Tenth Avenue North, Worn

grief….of a mother
loss –  of a “family” that you thought you had, of who you thought you were, of something you may never have, of dreams that may never come true
betrayal…of friends, or of those you thought were friends
pain…of the grief, the loss, the betrayal
hurt…

a deep need for healing…that maybe you didn’t know existed, until the words were spoken to you – deeper than you realize

a place to heal.

This is where the healing begins
This is where the healing starts
When you come to where you’re broken within
The light meets the dark
– Tenth Avenue North

a safe place.
a sacred place.

a place to get the healing your heart needs.                                               
“restore within me a sense of being brand new”
– Psalm 51:10, The Voice

to be brand new….to experience that healing and learn to live with the scars – that’s where I want to be.

where the hurt and the healing 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 – Mercy Me, the Hurt and the Healer

healing takes more than a Band-Aid over your heart, or the “right” words, or the wall to be built higher, or the feelings to be choked

healing takes time.
healing takes just being.
healing takes demolition.
healing takes letting go.
healing takes space.

healing takes grace.
