The Maker of Your Heart

The flame went out so slowly, you can’t remember it was ever on
Can’t see down in the darkness, you only know that something’s wrong

So sure that no one hears you, so certain no one gives a damn
No bridges left behind you … you’re sinking down into the sand

Your heart’s become a fortress, but it doesn’t stop the pain
Every wall that you build higher only drives you more insane

Have you reached the place where nothing can get in?
Has the world you built around you become cold and thin?

When you’re at the end and your hope has died
There’s no hanging on, you’ve given up and cried
There is One who knows, there is One who sees
There is One who picks you up when you’ve fallen on your knees

The Maker of your eyes can see. The Maker of your ears can hear
The Maker of your heart can feel what you’re going through

Random Shovelquote: Realize the freedom (view all shovelquotes)

How can you realize the freedom you have in Christ? I say that you will discover it, more times than not, in the midst of the bondage that still seems to hold you down. You see, the power of the gospel is not found merely in the words of its testimony of Jesus’ death and resurrection, it is found in the reality that has been brought about because of who he is and what he has done. That reality is that Christ is in you. He is there, and his life witnesses from within you … despite all the doubts that you think actually come from within you. source
