Lord, please heal my heart, but not so much that I don’t hurt,
For if I don’t hurt, how will I remember.
Lord, never let me forget the pain,
For if I forget, how will I know your blessings
Lord if you choose to fill my arms, still let them ache just a bit,
For if they don’t ache, she will be forgotten.
Lord walk with me through memories,
For without you there, I might only look at the negative.
Lord show me just enough of your purpose in my pain,
That I may be content with the path you have chosen for me.
Lord, open my eyes to others that are hurting,
So that I may be your hands of comfort to them.
Lord, make of me what you will,
So that this pain is not in vain.
