Less Like Scars by Sara Groves

It’s been a hard year
But I’m climbing out of the rubble
These lessons are hard
Healing changes are subtle
But every day it’s

Less like tearing, more like building
Less like captive, more like willing
Less like breakdown, more like surrender
Less like haunting, more like remember

And I feel you here
And you’re picking up the pieces
Forever faithful
It seemed out of my hands, a bad situation
But you are able
And in your hands the pain and hurt
Look less like scars and more like character

Less like a prison, more like my room
It’s less like a casket, more like a womb
Less like dying, more like transcending
Less like fear, less like an ending

And I feel you here
And you’re picking up the pieces
Forever faithful
It seemed out of my hands, a bad situation
But you are able
And in your hands the pain and hurt
Look less like scars

Just a little while ago
I couldn’t feel the power or the hope
I couldn’t cope, I couldn’t feel a thing
Just a little while back
I was desperate, broken, laid out, hoping
You would come

And I need you
And I want you here
And I feel you

And I know you’re here
And you’re picking up the pieces
Forever faithful
It seemed out of my hands, a bad, bad situation
But you are able

And in your hands the pain and hurt
 Look less like scars [x3]

And more like character

Yes, as the above song says, it’s been a tough year for me. Having said that, it is getting a little easier, although I most definitely still have some very tough days, when I feel as if my world has fallen apart, not just because of the death of both my Dad and my Aunt Mae, but also because other events and developments this year.

What keeps me going? Sometimes, if I’m honest, I don’t really know what gets me through each day. Other times I am sure it’s because of those around me. I know that know matter what kind of day I’m having, and what kind of challenges I’m facing, God is with me and helping me, and help to heal my wounds.

If your life seems full of open wounds, turn to God, He can help heal your wounds.
