The Surest One

 

The last few months there has been some painful family drama.  Without going into details, I was recently thinking about one particular person involved in the whole thing and just feeling sadness and pain because of their choices and how those choices were affecting others and, in the long run, themselves. A lot of my songs stem out of that emotional feeling place. I sat down to the piano and caught the beginning tune of this song. It’s taken me a little while to figure out the rest of the tune, but the notes that came to me at first have stuck like glue. I finished the song just yesterday. Here are the words:

 

 

Part One:

Why do they

Turn away

From the only One

Who satisfies?

Don’t they know

He’s the One

Who can bring hope

To their shattered lives?

 

Oh I know it’s not easy

To trust Him with your heart

When it’s bleeding and breaking

But don’t you know

 

Refrain:

He’s the One

The Surest One

When you’re bleeding and you’re breaking

When your heart is torn in two

When your life falls apart

And you don’t know what to do

Trust the One who stops the bleeding

Who knows the perfect mend

Trust the One who holds you close

Restoring you to His truth!

 

Part Two:

You don’t have

To hold on

To the deep pain

And brokenness.

He can wipe

Ev’ry tear

From your eye

And bring joy to your life.

 

Oh I know it’s hard to see how

This could ever turn for good

But in every heartbreak burden

He’s got your hand.

 

Repeat Refrain:

He’s the One

The Surest One

When you’re bleeding and you’re breaking

When your heart is torn in two

When your life falls apart

And you don’t know what to do

Trust the One who stops the bleeding

Who knows the perfect mend

Trust the One who holds you close

Restoring you to His truth!

 

Finale:

He’s the One

The Surest One

When you’re bleeding and you’re breaking

You can trust Him with your heart

He’s the One

The Surest One

He’s the One

The Surest One

He’s the One

The Surest One

    You really make it seem so easy along with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be really one thing that I believe I might never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely wide for me. I am taking a look forward in your subsequent submit, I will attempt to get the cling of it!

    1. LOL! I would not say it’s easy by any means. Vulnerability when we’re already so excruciatingly wounded is extremely difficult. But, He is the One with whom we are always perfectly safe to be vulnerable with. You only come to know that through the doing of it though. That requires complete honesty with God, with your pain, your fear. You have to “lay it all out there”. That can be very terrifying. But, I have never come to God with my wounds that way and not be tenderly and lovingly received. Only He knows how to comfort us in those deepest places. It’s really not all that complicated. It all boils down to a choice, a choice to open up, be honest and let Him see, let Him hear, let Him feel, what you do.
