It’s like, it doesn’t honor God to pretend like everything is OK. That’s the beauty of Jesus that so many people miss. The beauty is that he died on the cross for our sins, but also that he existed the way we exist. He understands what it’s like to lose a friend. He’s not unfamiliar with those emotions. He’s not unfamiliar with the difficulty of human life. To me that’s what makes Jesus as God beautiful. He totally understands. He went out of his way to prove to us that he understands our situation. So when he has something to say, it’s not coming from this high and lofty standpoint. It’s coming from this person who understands intricately the perils of human existence.
We’re going to have to let truth scream louder to our souls than the lies that have infected us.
We grew up in the same home, the same way
And I don’t understand how so many things could have changed
But at the same time I do.
You were always the more brave one,
The one unafraid to say what is on your mind
And sometimes I think the words you say are all the secrets I hide
We see the same things and we struggle with the same lies
Perhaps if I was a little more honest, if I were in your shoes we’d be the exact same.
The light and the dark, ying and yang, we fit together you and I.
It was just the two of us
And for awhile it was the two of us against the world,
But I moved away and you moved on
And though I love you with a bond as thick as our blood
I cant help missing the childhood we had
Where we fought and forgave and played until the night
And the whole world was a lot simpler and we still believed everything would always work out.
And more than anything I wish I could help you
And more than anything I hate that it was me
Jacob I have loved, Esau I have hated.
Please change your mind
I know its hard
Why is it so hard?
And for some reason
That no one can explain I can
See the light shining
When nothing should let it shine
When you tell me about the blackness
I don’t know why I’m allowed to see it
I can’t make you see it.
Please let him see.
