This one Scott played for me a few months ago. It was one night after I had begun to feel weary under the weight of some things that were just breaking my heart. And this song... well, it made me remember.
Remember that I had asked for God to break my heart.
Remember that I don't want go back to the way I was before. When I thought that my life was "more than I could handle" (and it wasn't fair), and I was so busy "helping myself" (because who else would?).
When I was overwhelmed by my own weaknesses and clinging to control...
Before sweet surrender ... and a broken heart... and a joy that only comes from knowing you are held. Right here.. in the madness... in the brokenness. And yet you are not broken. No strangely, you are whole. More complete and whole than you have ever been...
So, please, Lord even when I seek my solace in a bowl of ice cream and say I just want to run away from it all... Please, Lord, don't stop the madness. For here I have found You to be everything you said you would be.
