EVERYBODY has THEM.
EVERYBODY doesn't want to have THEM.
EVERYBODY tries to pretend that they don't have THEM.
But you & I are an
so why do we fight against THEM?
THEY dictate our moments that roll into hours that roll into a day.
You try stuffing THEM, numbing THEM, ignoring THEM,
but THEY just won't go away
because THEY are trying to get out.
THEY made you who you are
and come in all different shapes and sizes.
And then you meet someone
who just starts talking about
and you wonder~
How can they talk about THEM?
How can they talk about THEM with such a PEACE~
a PEACE that you so crave~
yet you are so terrified to share
what if they only knew
what you are feeling and what you have been
stuffing, numbing & pretending what wasn't there.
a part of you that you wish you could forget?
So as you continue to hear their story.
You are amazed
as your eyes get bugged eye
the moment you hear the name of
Ugh, here comes that name again~
HE may have worked for them.
HE may be your "religion".
HE may have come into their life
did HE really take
the REAL you & the things in your life that are a memory
that have left such a hole in your heart
that you would rather
stuff, numb & pretend that they aren't there~
instead of going to the ONE called JESUS~
WHO IS more than just a man in a fancy robe.
WHO IS more than just a man written about in a heavy book.
WHO IS more than you could every imagine to do the unimaginable in your life
and take away the pain that you have been
stuffing, numbing & pretending that isn't there.

who is telling their story about this
MAN CALLED JESUS
ONCE UPON A TIME
came into their life
taking their pain, hurt, bitterness, guilt & shame
the moment they looked into the eyes of
THIS MAN CALLED JESUS
who made them radically
the moment they were courageous enough to bring their
pain, hurt, bitterness, guilt & shame
the place where
became so real~
JESUS took every nail for
you & me & everybody else.
We all have THEM
can do with THEM
what we can never do with THEM~
cover THEM with HIMSELF
so that we can stop
stuffing, numbing & pretending
that everything is okay~
because everything isn't okay
JESUS becomes more than just a man
who is just part of some storybook
you & me & everyone else
meets HIM at the foot of the Cross
where HE meets you & me & everyone else
& changes you forever.
What is your THEM that you need to take to the Cross?
Oh I can't stop bringing THEM to the Cross
because I am one of THEM
in the face of JESUS
who takes me beyond
