Back at my heart

Strong on the outside
But coming apart at the seams
That's me
Tragically always together
But bruised underneath
That's me
I stand just to stumble
I trip on my pride
Why do I always try to hide

Meanwhile back at my heart
I'm desperate for all that You are
See through me and take me apart
Meanwhile back at my soul
Mend me, please make me whole
You know just where to start
Back at my heart, back at my heart

Patiently waiting to pick up
The pieces of me
That's You
Healer of hearts
When the world leaves it broken in two
That's You
Maker of heaven
The sky and the sea
When You stretched your arms
You reached for me

Meanwhile back at my heart
I'm desperate for all that You are
Undo me and take me apart
Meanwhile back at my soul
Mend me, please make me whole
You know just where to start

Back at my heart
Back at my fear
Back at my brokenness
Lord meet me here
I am exposed
And I'm not afraid anymore

So I really am finding this song to be very real to me in the season I am in. I think everyone at one time has to allow themselves to go back to their heart and look at the hurts, the fears, at the brokenness and also to the passions and desires in your heart. It doesn’t always have to be something sad and traumatic and can be something that you have a passion for that you’ve kept hidden in your heart and now God wants you to go dig it up and use this passion!! Sometime the thing we need to go dig up in our heart is finding out who we are. Not by our accomplishments, our relationship status, our deeds, or even our failures but what God says about us and who he says we are!!!

We are chosen. We are set apart. We are meant to live big, big lives FULL of joy, unafraid, loved supremely by the one who created us, And God didn’t choose us because he thinks we're always go to win. In fact, he chose us knowing that we may be clumsy, self-conscious, ashamed, too quick to give our opinion, dreadful at listening, full of pride, shy, too smart for our own good, or possessing a host of other characteristics that are deemed by the world as the traits of a loser. God knows us intimately, in all our imperfections, and he loves us beyond measure.

That truth, rooted deeply in our hearts, coloring every thought that runs through our minds is more than enough to see us through the game. When was the last time you were eagerly chosen, picked out of the crowd, or given the recognition? Do you remember what that felt like? Were you surprised, or did you see it coming? How did the people around you react? What would you like look like today if you truly believed what God says about you.....? That you were chosen, even before you were born? Understanding who you really are will change your life forever you just may have to go back to your heart to find it.

... I´m going right now through one of these moments of looking at my whole life and heart, with my mind full of questions, still knowing that the Lord is Lord and that holds my life in His hands. Reading this was a huge encouragement to me and I want to thank you for your words here. They have brought me peace. :)
God bless! :)
