‘Til It Burns In Your Bones

We all have shadows

In our past

Things we don’t want

To see clearly

We all have been hurt

Sometime, by someone

And at times that hurt

It is so real

There are times

When I must admit

That you hurt me

And there are times

When the pain is so raw

But I know that you

You did your best

And sometimes life is hard

But I gotta remember

Yes, we all must remember

That we are called to forgive

Oh, just as we are forgiven –

So shall we forgive.

There is a choice to be made

Are we gonna hang on

Or can we let it go

I know there will be times

When the pain returns to haunt you

But at that moment

You have a choice to make

Are you gonna hang on to it forever

‘Til it burns in your bones

Or are you gonna

Just give it to Jesus

Yes, just give it to Jesus

Make your choice for love

And let it go

This blog is for anyone who wants to know more about Jesus and His love and how faith in Him plays out in real life application. Hello, we are Jerry and Angela and we are two fools for Christ. We have decided to make our lives totally surrendered to Jesus in response to His love and His gift of salvation. We are in our early 40′s and we have two children together and [Angela has] an older daughter that is now an adult. We have been married to each other for going on ten years. We surrendered our lives to the Lord together in 2010 and have been growing in that relationship with Him and each other since that time. We both accepted salvation and made professions of faith earlier in our lives, but did not make Him Lord and Savior until 2010. At that time we realized that trying to walk in our own strength and our own ways was useless and empty and had led us to another rock bottom experience. We humbly turned our lives over to Jesus and have been seeking Him with all that we are ever since. That does not mean that we have become perfect. That does not mean that we have not sinned again. That does not mean that we have not had trouble or trials or storms since that time. What this means is that we are growing, we are learning, we are becoming more loving and compassionate and forgiving. We want to share our faith with our readers. We want to share our growth process and transformation with you. We wish to encourage you and lift you.
