It was a salt in the wound day.
A little girl sat with her back to me. And after 18 months of play therapy, she finally spoke. About the pain and the sorrow and the love she's given up on.
And all I could do was weep.
So that was my day.
And that's what we're here for, my friends.
Not just me, but all of us. All of us who know Jesus, and hold onto hope in the dark.
We are here to listen and to weep and to bear the burdens of those who just have too much to bear.
So let's get up and do it again.
Hearts wide open.
Lyrics to Salt in the Wound :
I want to disappear
Far from the folks I know
I want to get an answer
To why I was even born
No one here can tell me
What's been haunting me all my life
Well this rat race has left me limping
Cause I balanced on the edge of the edge of the knife.
Why am I here?
Oh what should I do?
Well is this the point I'm trying to prove?
If there's a god in my head
Then there's a devil too
How can I tell the difference
When they both claim to be true
Maybe God is God
Maybe the Devil is me
Well I just throw my chains on
And tell myself that I'm free
Chains - are they really there?
Is this just in my head?
Well I'll just stay in bed
Life sure has its meaning
Over years I have postured the sun
Thieves and preachers robbed me
For many hats that I've hung
Now with my heart wide open
I listen to the wind just for a word
Sure, I know it's futile
But that's all I have in this world
To look down from the hill
And howl at the moon
All the tears I cried never salted any wounds
Well the earth is so tender and cruel
Well if you're not there it's still so beautiful
