These lyrics.

Tonight.

One song describes with eerie and precise accuracy what I am feeling.

Listen to it, to the words – written as if God Himself is speaking them over us. I’ve included the portion of the lyrics that resonates with me so deeply tonight; I’ve then included the audio of the song itself…

This chest is full of memories
Of gold and silver tears
I’ll give you more to own than all of this
I’ll give you more than years
For you were once a child of innocence
And I see you just the same
Your burdens couldn’t win or lose a thing
Oh, I’d tell you once again
But you’re always on the run
Slow your breath down
Just take it slow
Find your heart now, oh
You can trust and love again
Slow your breath down
Just take it slow
Find your smile now, oh
You can trust and love again

 

Come memories – painful though they may be – come burdens, come lost innocence, come racing heart, or come loneliness… Redemption has won me, and His grace cannot – and will not ever – be undone. I can relax my grip on this pain inside of me, and I can release it to Him – open hands, eager gaze. I am not alone. With my face to the floor, His presence enfolds me. And I can breathe.

Goodnight, friends. Slow your breath down; You are not alone.
