We make believe everything is okay when it is not. God wants us to admit our weaknesses and be healed.

Written: 30th July 2016

VERSE 1
We want to look good
we want to seem strong
building our castle walls tall

CHORUS 1
Though we’re weak and
struggling in our hearts
we block the feelings and
make believe we’re strong
we make believe we’re strong

VERSE 2
Say the right words and
do the right things
with wrong intentions
fake it till
we make a hollow shell

PRE-CHORUS
Oh God You see my heart
and all things I’m going through
You want me in the light
and to be cleansed by You

CHORUS 2
Cause I’m weak and
struggling in my heart
I block the feelings and
make believe I’m strong
I make believe I’m strong

BRIDGE
Take away air and I’d be dead
take away love,
I’d meet the same end
I keep running away
if I acknowledge pain
there can be healing
Oh God I need You

We easily hide our expressions that show weakness, to protect us emotionally. It’s terrifying to be vulnerable and easier (short term) to just pretend we are fine. In hiding weaknesses we also hinder healing processes to the point where it becomes a normal part of us. But in acknowledging and admitting our inability to do something on our own we can get help and grow from it.
