build us back

If you've been following along for any length of time you know I share the good, bad and ugly parts of my life.  Most of it is good...really good.  I'm blessed.  But this week has been hard...ugly.  I've had a falling out with someone close to me.  I think the bigger the love the harder the fall.  Holes have been torn in the fabric of our relationship and it's really painful. 


I keep replaying the hurtful words over and over.  My mind is on overdrive going back and forth between what was said and what I want to say.  It's like a sick song that won't turn off.  And as much as I know what is right and what is true...I don't know how to go there.  Forgiveness is tricky.  The bible has a lot to say on the topic. We are commanded to forgive and do it quickly, but how do I even begin when there is so much anger and hurt??  I know that the enemy is doing a happy dance.  He's a thief and he'd love nothing more than to destroy and steal what we had. 




I listened to this song this morning while I was working out and it really ministered to me.   These are the lyrics.

Newsboys Build Us Back Lyrics:


We've been crumbled, we've been crushed

City walls have turned to dust

Broken hands and blistered feet

We walk for miles to find relief

When the thief takes, when our hopes cave

You build us back

You build us back

When the earth shakes, when the world breaks

You build us back

You build us back



We are scared, we are poor

All our safety nets are torn


We've been humbled to our knees

From these ruins, we believe



When the thief takes, when our hopes cave

You build us back

You build us back



When the earth shakes, when the world breaks

You build us back

You build us back



Redeemer, redeem us

Restorer, restore us

Oh build us back


Though the mountains be shaken, the hills be removed

Your unfailing love remains

After all that's been taken, Your promise, still sacred

You build us back with precious stones



When the thief takes, when our hopes cave

You build us back

You build us back



When the earth shakes, when the world breaks

You build us back

You build us back






Have a blessed day.
