Healing Begins

I just heard this song for the first time today and as so many songs do, it really spoke to me and I wanted to share it. So often I fall back into a works based mentality and I build walls, or I try, but freedom and healing comes when you are willing to be broken before God and some of the people He has put in your life to hold you accountable and encourage you... And I love the bridge: "Sparks will fly as grace collides with the dark inside of us. So please don't fight this coming light, Let this blood come cover us, His blood can cover us..." 

Lyrics and Video below:

Healing Begins by Tenth Avenue North

So you thought you had to keep this up
All the work that you do
So we think that you're good
And you can't believe it's not enough
All the walls you built up
Are just glass on the outside

So let 'em fall down
There's freedom waiting in the sound
When you let your walls fall to the ground
We're here now

This is where the healing begins, oh
This is where the healing starts
When you come to where you're broken within
The light meets the dark
The light meets the dark

Afraid to let your secrets out
Everything that you hide
Can come crashing through the door now
But too scared to face all your fear
So you hide but you find
That the shame won't disappear

Sparks will fly as grace collides
With the dark inside of us
So please don't fight
This coming light
Let this blood come cover us
His blood can cover us
