Heard a song by the group Casting Crowns for the first time today. It really spoke to my heart.

(Edited to correct link. Hope this is right this time. First time posting from my phone. )

Lyrics:

What do you think about when you look at me?
I know we're not the fairytale you dreamed we'd be
You wore the veil, you walked the aisle, you took my hand
And we dove into a mystery

How I wish we could go back to simpler times
Before all our scars and all our secrets were in the light
Now on this hallowed ground, we've drawn the battle lines
Will we make it through the night?

It's going to take much more than promises this time
Only God can change our minds

Maybe you and I were never meant to be complete
Could we just be broken together?

If you can bring your shattered dreams and I'll bring mine
Could healing still be spoken and save us?
The only way we'll last forever... is Broken Together

How it must have been so lonely by my side
We were building kingdoms and chasing dreams and left love behind
I'm praying God will help our broken hearts align
And we wont give up the fight

It's going to take much more than promises this time
Only God can change our minds

Maybe you and I were never meant to be complete
Could we just be broken together?

If you can bring your shattered dreams and I'll bring mine
Could healing still be spoken and save us?
The only way we'll last forever... is Broken Together

Maybe you and I were never meant to be complete
Could we just be broken together?

If you can bring your shattered dreams and I'll bring mine
Could healing still be spoken and save us?
The only way we'll last forever... is Broken Together

Love that song too! Heard it for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Amazing.

Heard them interviewed....are young to have such insight on this topic. But maybe I'm a slow learner....when I was there ages I was so naive.


Thanks for posting the lyrics.

Peace

First time that I have heard their music but it does touch the soul ...

thanks for giving this to us today.


Donít listen to your head, itís easily confused. Donít listen to your heart, its fickle. Listen to your soul, God doesn't steer you wrong.

Altho I'm familiar with the group, yesterday was the first time I've ever really heard anything from them. I know I will be marinating in this message for a while. Really need this right now. Just had to share. Glad it speaks to others as well.

I am not religious, but this song speaks so beautifully about the plight of those relationships touched by infidelityÖ
