Inspiration For Today – July 12

Time is still the best answer, forgiveness is still the best pain killer and God is still the best healer.

The inspiration for today, July 12, comes from MercyMe and the song The Hurt & The Healer.

When your soul is hurting you don’t need an aspirin or a lecture. You need a healer. Thankfully the one and only healer of the soul is available 24/7/365 and His services are FREE to all who ask. Now, who could possibly pass up that offer?

Inspirational Quote For Today – Psalm 103:1-5

Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
Who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
Who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Who Is MercyMe?

The lead singer for MercyMe is Bart Millard who started the band in 1994 with his friend, guitarist Mike Scheuchzer, and keyboardist Jim Bryson.

Bart Millard really wanted to be a football player like his father and his brother, but an injury to both ankles, while he was in high school, ended that possibility.

Since he couldn’t play football anymore, Bart decided to join the high school choir.

While he was in college, Bart’s youth pastor invited him to work with the youth group’s band. Bart accepted and became in charge of the audio and video systems for the band.

One day the band’s lead singer got sick and Bart got his chance to fill in at that spot.

It wasn’t too long after that time that Bart and Jim Bryson, who played piano for the band, started considering the possibility of playing music full time.

Bart and his friend, guitarist Mike Scheuchzer, moved to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to join Jim Bryson and together they formed the group MercyMe.

Story Behind The Song – The Hurt & The Healer by MercyMe

The Hurt & The Healer Lyrics

Why?
The question that is never far away
The healing doesn’t come from the explained
Jesus please don’t let this go in vain
You’re all I have
All that remains

So here I am
What’s left of me
Where glory meets my suffering

I’m alive
Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
I’ll fall into Your arms open wide
When the hurt and the healer collide

Breathe
Sometimes I feel it’s all that I can do
Pain so deep that I can hardly move
Just keep my eyes completely fixed on You
Lord take hold and pull me through

So here I am
What’s left of me
Where glory meets my suffering

I’m alive
Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
I’ll fall into Your arms open wide
When the hurt and the healer collide

It’s the moment when humanity
Is overcome by majesty
When grace is ushered in for good
And all our scars are understood
When mercy takes its rightful place
And all these questions fade away
When out of the weakness we must bow
And hear You say it’s over now

I’m alive
Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
I’ll fall into Your arms open wide
When the hurt and the healer collide

Jesus come and break my fear
Awake my heart and take my tears
Find Your glory even here
When the hurt and the healer collide

Jesus come and break my fear
Awake my heart and take my tears
Find Your glory even here
When the hurt and the healer collide

Jesus come and break my fear
Awake my heart and take my tears
Find Your glory even here
