Heal The Wound by Point of Grace

This song is so beautiful. I came across the song from a friend's blog, and it touched my heart.

We all have wounds in our hearts... from sin in our lives, or painful things that happen along the journey. Regardless of what the wound is from, it's important that we have a scar to remind us of what God taught us through the pain. Our scars should lead us to praise God for His love and mercy, and remind us that there is beauty in suffering. We should ask God to use our scars to reach out and encourage others, whose wounds are fresh. Don't be afraid to let your scars show.

Lord, I pray that for each wound you heal in my life, you leave a scar... to remind me of your mercy and love. Use them to bring me to my knees in awe of your mercy, and to remind me to have compassion for others. 

"But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." (Isaiah 40:31)

"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you." (1 Peter 5:7)

Heal the Wound by Point of Grace

I used to wish that I could rewrite history
I used to dream that each mistake could be erased
Then I could just pretend
I never knew the me back then

I used to pray that You would take this shame away
Hide all the evidence of who I've been
But it's the memory of
The place You brought me from
That keeps me on my knees
And even though I'm free

Heal the wound but leave the scar
A reminder of how merciful You are
I am broken, torn apart
Take the pieces of this heart
And heal the wound but leave the scar

I have not lived a life that boasts of anything
I don't take pride in what I bring
But I'll build an altar with
The rubble that You've found me in

And every stone will sing
Of what You can redeem


Don't let me forget
Everything You've done for me
Don't let me forget
The beauty in the suffering
