Honesty

Honesty… it is a difficult word at times, but necessary.  I have been at places in my life when I was afraid to be honest with myself, with God and with others.  For some reason, we think we can keep secrets from Him. When I finally was able to come to the place of honesty, it was the beginning of healing.

Today I would like to share a song with you by an artist who I have appreciated for many years.  Her music has attracted me due to the honesty that is so prevalent in her lyrics.  Her name is Margaret Becker.  To find out more about her music, please visit her website at  http://www.maggieb.com/ This song is being used with permission.

 

 

Honesty

Tonight by the glow
Of the firelight
You found the courage
To speak your mind
And tear down the walls
You’ve been hiding behind
You spoke of your struggle
And you cried from the pain
You spoke of your failure
And then you turned in shame
You said you knew you’d never
Be alright

Chorus
God’s not afraid of your honesty
He can heal your heart if you speak honestly
Humble sorrow and the honest cry
He will not pass by

So many of us
Spend so much time
Smoothing things over
Pretending we’re fine
As if life could ever be
So cut and dried
But you my friend
You’ve got that passionate heart
It’ll curse you sometimes
But it can take you far
When you let Him tame it
You will be just fine

Chorus
God’s not afraid of your honesty
He can heal your heart if you speak honestly
Humble sorrow and the honest cry
He will not pass by
You may feel like you’re crawling
Over broken glass
Crying a river
Into the pillows of your past
But you will be free

Chorus
God’s not afraid of your honesty
He can heal your heart if you speak honestly
Humble sorrow and the honest cry
He will not pass by

    I love Margaret Becker’s music. Haven’t thought about her stuff in a number of years, but I know that God’s anointing on her voice and her ministry is huge.
