I remember when I first heard this song on the Matthew West album, I cried. My reason for tears was that I longed to experience healing from my past hurts and anger but for some stronghold of a reason, I could not lay my burdens down and claim my victory. Why? because I didn’t trust God enough to handle it. I was angry at him. My anger was the bane of my miserable existence. I was a void collection of sporadic matter floating about.
Last week while at my mother’s grave, I cried once again but this time as a form of release. I let go of my fears, hurt and anger and buried them figuratively at the headstone, telling God that I was through with just meering existing, but that I wanted to live burden-free. I claimed my healing that day and now I can be there for others.
