GIVE YOUR HEART A HOME

When I first heard this song by Don Fransisco in the 1980’s, I couldn’t help but cry because my own heart longed to be known. Now I find it encouraging:

“I hear your hollow laughter
your sighs of secret pain
Pretending and inventing
just to hide your shame
Plastic smiles and faces
blinkin’ back the tears
Empty friends and places
all magnify your fears

If you’re tired and weary,
weak and heavy laden
I can understand how it feels to be alone
I will take your burden,
if you’ll let Me love you,
Wrap My arms around you,
Give your heart a home

It hurts to watch you struggle
and try so hard to win
But trade your precious birth right
for candy coated sin
Wasting precious moments
restless and confused
Building up defenses
for fear that you’ll be used

If you’re tired and weary,
weak and heavy laden
I can understand how it feels to be alone
I will take your burden,
if you’ll let Me love you,
Wrap My arms around you,
Give your heart a home

Take My yoke upon you
and walk here by My side
Let Me heal your heartaches,
dry the tears you’ve cried
Never will I leave you,
never turn away
Keep you through the darkness
lead you through the day

If you’re tired and weary,
weak and heavy laden
I can understand how it feels to be alone
I will take your burden,
if you’ll let Me love you,
Wrap My arms around you,
Give your heart a home”

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
