Breaking Through

I wrote this song this morning, reflecting on my process... and the picture I get of it... like a baby bird developing and slowly breaking through the shell out into the world... if he does not go through this process, he will not be strong enough to survive, and will die... I am thankful for my process, because I have been made strong through it...

Breaking Through

Quietly, I hear it
A tapping in my Soul
A longing to break free

and be made whole

Slowly getting louder now
I know it won't be long
Til my spirit breaks free
and I am made strong

In my weakness Your strength is perfect

In my stumbling You are there
In my loneliness, I hear You

and I feel Your loving care

I'm breaking through
to be who You made me to be
All because of You
I'm starting to see

I can see the light
breaking through the dark
Shining deep within

Illuminating every part

Never more alone
only set apart
Given a new mind
to join my new heart

I'm breaking through

to be who You made me to be
All because of You
I'm starting to see

Help me to see
Help me to be
All that I am
All that I am to be

I'm breaking through

Breaking through to see
I'm breaking through
Breaking through to be

I'm breaking through

Breaking through to me -
the real me
The me I was always meant to be

Wow! Our pastor last night talked about what our expectations of God are and how when we are disappointed in Him not meeting our expectations, that is when we can understand God more and grow.

I'm not where you are right now, but trust that I will get to the other side.

Very cool song. I too am grateful for the process...despite it's down side and gloomy days, it does make us stronger and provides a profound appreciation for what is and what we have been given.

Thank you for sharing!

It's a constant learning process, that finding of who God is molding you into. That was beautiful and I loved it. Thank you for sharing it.

Love your song even without sound.

I love how you wrote about the chick and the process of breaking out of the egg as an introduction to your lyrics.

That's a great song. You're right, even though it's tough, it makes us stronger and something that has to be done.

the analogy of the bird breaking through is a beautiful one that make your words literally come alive...

Beautiful song. Spirituality is such a ongoing process. We have to continually submit to the process!

Just thought I would add, you hit the nail on the head with the living close to the hardware store...We live so close you could throw a stone at it and trust me, we are ALWAYS there!

Thanks for stopping by!

How poetic. I'm so glad to see you are on the up and up. The bird breaking free picture truly shows you've hit an epiphany.

I think our spirits are walking a similar path, and I know that who God made you to be is better than anything you or I could ever imagine. I look forward to seeing you someday, and knowing that you are exactly who God wanted you to be. Thanks for writing this song. It was as if my own heart spoke the words.
