If We're Honest

Rather than sharing my own personal thoughts today,

I wanted to share the lyrics to a song by Francesca Battistelli.

The words are raw, vulnerable, powerful, and truthful.  

I believe these lyrics describe what each of us really wants to express,

and yet for a myriad of reasons, we don't. 

I hope you enjoy and have a fabulous week!


If We're Honest

Truth is harder than a lie

The dark seems safer than the light

And everyone has a heart that loves to hide

I'm a mess and so are you

We've built walls nobody can get through

Yeah, it may be hard, but the best thing we could ever do, ever do

Bring your brokenness, and I'll bring mine

'Cause love can heal what hurt divides

And mercy's waiting on the other side

If we're honest

If we're honest

Don't pretend to be something that you're not

Living life afraid of getting caught

There is freedom found when we lay

our secrets down at the cross, at the cross

It would change our lives

It would set us free

It's what we need to be
