Grief is painful, and it's an emotion that is so painful that often times our first instinct is to hide, stuff it down, and "deal with it later". "Dealing with it later" then escalates to depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses that begin to shape the way we think and view the world. The purpose of this song, if I'm being completely honest and straightforward with you, is to give you the space to be angry at God, to ask Him hard questions, to deal with the hurt and bring it into the light. The reason why I'm inviting you into this space is for the healing and binding up of your wounds; it will take time, but not as much time as it would if you were to stuff it down until it explodes out in unhealthy ways 5 years down the road. God isn't intimidated by your grief, in fact, He's weeping with you. God isn't going to shoo you away because of your questions, in fact, He invites you to ask them. God isn't going to abandon you during this time, in fact, if you let Him, He wants to do just the opposite. Either way, whether you believe in God or not, I know you believe and want your heart to heal. Or maybe you don't. Maybe the grief is too real and fresh and painful for you right now that you can't even begin to think about moving on, and I want you to know that's okay. This is song is for you. I hope this song reminds you that you are not alone in feeling the way you do. The feelings you have aren't too much or too dramatic or silly for whatever it is you may be grieving. Grief is not subject to the death of a person alone, it is subject to anything, any job, any way of life, any friend or relationship...grief isn't defined by one side of brokenness. SO whatever it is you may be grieving today, I invite you to grieve. I invite you to be real and to ugly cry and to doubt and to be open; for the sake of healing and for the sake of your mental health. I invite you into the choice of seeking community, help, counseling; whatever it is your heart needs. I invite you into going on a spontaneous vacation with your best friend to dive into the pain to discover new joys. I invite you to praise God despite your pain; knowing that He didn't do this to you and He is still the same, good, faithful, loving God He has and always will be. If you don't know this God I am talking about because you legitimately don't know what I'm talking about or you've been burned by Christians and the church before or if you don't think there is any logical evidence that a higher being created the earth, I hope and pray this song gives you a feeling of peace that can only be explained by His Name. I hope and pray this song is exactly what you needed to hear and gives words to a feeling you couldn't describe. I hope and pray this song helps you heal.
