the hurt...THE HEALER

I LOVE this new song by Mercy Me, "The Hurt and the Healer".  If you haven't heard it you MUST listen to it.  

I texted my sister-in-law, Mariah, and told her to listen to it because it pretty much explains our lives the past year and I knew it would bring her comfort too.

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

This is a video explaining where the inspiration from the song came from...

"A good name is better than fine perfume,
   and the day of death better than the day of birth.
 It is better to go to a house of mourning
   than to go to a house of feasting,
for death is the destiny of everyone;
   the living should take this to heart." -Ecclesiastes 7:1-2 

This song really bring me back "home" and looking at the bigger picture.  Who would think that a day of death is better than a day of birth?  As hard as it is for our earthly hearts and minds to comprehend it is so true.  

I'm starting my week remembering that the hurt is nothing that THE HEALER can't overcome.  He is slowing healing me and I will be healed forever in eternity with Hadley and HIM.
