Does time heal all wounds

Casting Crowns/Does Anybody Hear Her

It is said that time heals

all the wounds of a heart

But what happens to pain

from which some cannot part

It begins to build walls

no one can get through

Locking feelings inside

with not even a clue

Some may grow bitter

from time that's passed by

Reaching only dead ends

on each road that was tried

In their mind they've forgotten

in their heart it still shows

The wound was not healed

from the pain that still grows

Being dependent on time

can create many fears

When there isn't a hope

of ever stopping the tears

But God knows your troubles

He has offered a Way

To live life set apart

from the hours in a day

In His love there is power

to unlock every chain

Being unbound from our past

in the freedom we gain

Let time serve a purpose

for there is a great cost

Inside some broken hearts

lies a soul that is lost...

Hebrews 3:7

Today if you hear His voice,

do not harden your hearts..

Lisa Patricoff 1996

This is beautiful. I love how you put your words together with such heartfelt inspiration. As you said here, "Let time serve a purpose

for there is a great cost

Inside some broken hearts

lies a soul that is lost."

That is simply beautiful.

Aww-thank you so much. I appreciate that you took time to read and comment on this. I also am familiar with broken hearts..mending takes time.. and I, in my own way, have also stopped riding buses..I was a girl on the run- constantly moving to and fro- from home to home, job to job, relationship to relationship- couldn't find "home"..But, I, also- am here now- and able to truly thank you for your thoughtful words to me. God Bless You in Abundance..Isaiah 61..

This is awesome! I wish I had read this a year ago when my own heart was so badly broken. But God has perfect timing and did not let me miss out. I stopped riding buses, I am here now and you sent this my way:) Thanks and again, WONDERFUL! :)
