Taking It Deeper


The question that is never far away
But healing doesn't come from the explained
Jesus, please don't let this go in vain
You're all I have, all that remain
So here I am, what's left of me
When 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
So here I am, what's left of me
When glory meets my suffering
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 its rightful place
And all these questions fade away
When out of 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


  • There is a list of words that I wish could be banned from the English language:
  • Words like: Divorce, Widowhood, Stage 4 Cancer.
  • When words like that become an unwelcome part of your life.
  • The words of this (that) song become something you can hold on to...


  • I was watching an episode of “Mythbusters” where they were testing a flamethrower against a fire extinguisher.
  • The flamethrower won.
  • But it made me think of this (that) song.
  • Our hurts come at us like a flamethrower.   We think we have no chance against them.
  • Especially when we try to use our own methods, like a fire extinguisher.
  • Instead, we have to rely on God, the one who created fire, and the oxygen that feeds it.
  • He is the one who can heal the hurts.


  • If you’ve ever been in a collision, you know that you and your vehicle are never the same.
  • On the outside the dents and the crumpled bumper can be replaced.
  • But on the inside, the memory of the crash causes you to drive differently.
  • You’re more cautious, you do whatever you can to remain safe.
  • Jesus can heal the dents of a life crumpled by heartache.
  • And He is also the one that you can run to for safety.


  • When Jesus was turned over to be crucified, the Apostle Peter, one of his dearest friends denied Him, as Jesus predicted he’d do.
  • Peter was devastated.
  • However, when Jesus came back, Peter’s hurt collided directly with Jesus’ healing.
  • Jesus wants to heal your hurt too.

    Of David.   Praise the   Lord,   O my soul;   all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
