The Hurt & The Healer

“The Hurt and the Healer” by Mercy Me came on Pandora the other day and even though I have heard it umpteen times, this time the message finally hit me. The Lord really encouraged me to share it with my Infertility Support Group last night.

The chapter from our book this past week was titled, “Why”? Based on the title of the chapter and the first lyric of the song, I figured the song was fitting for us to listen to during our study.

I love the third line, “The healing doesn’t come from being explained”. So even if we were able to answer the question, “Why, God, Why”?, the answer is not what would bring healing to our situation. God is what brings healing. When we are hurting, God meets us there and He is the ultimate healer.

When I find more time, I hope to post more about the book, but for now, go and listen to this song. The story behind why the song was written is awesome too!

The Hurt & The Healer

The question that is never far away
The healing doesn’t come from being explained
Jesus please don’t let this go in vain
You’re all I have
All that remains
So here I am
What’s left of me
Where glory meets my suffering

I’m alive
Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
I fall into Your arms open wide
When the hurt and the healer collide

Sometimes I feel it’s all that I can do
Pain so deep that I can hardly move
Just keep my eyes completely fixed on You
Lord take hold and pull me through

It’s the moment when humanity
Is overcome by majesty
When grace is ushered in for good
And all our scars are understood
When mercy takes it’s rightful place
And all these questions fade away
When out of the weakness we must bow
And hear You say “It’s over now”

Jesus come and break my fear
Wake my heart and take my tears
Find Your glory even here
When the hurt and the healer collide

    This has been “my song” this past year. I actually saw Mercy Me in concert last August and when they sang this song, I just cried. It’s such a fitting song to describe so perfectly what I was feeling.

    This song is just so perfect for the infertility struggle. A couple of my other favorites are Our Hope Endures (Natalie Grant) and Praise You in This Storm (Casting Crowns).

    I love this song! Like Em, I’m a fan of Praise You in This Storm, too. I’m also here for Blessings by Laura Story and Hope Now by Addison Road. 🙂

    I love the line ending with “And all our scars are understand” it goes along with everything happens for a reason and someday it will all make perfect sense. Thanks for this!

    This is such an inspiration. I really love Mercy Me’s songs. Thank you for sharing this, sometimes there are so many questions just because we think they will bring us Peace. I asked God something the other day and I would never really want to know. It was just the only way I would know how to deal with the grief that I feel. I wish had a face to face group of ladies I could share with too. Until then I cherish finding this net work of women via the web.
