Then Sings My Soul - Say, by John Mayer

To really appreciate how powerfully this song hit me this week, picture me drifting off to sleep at the end of a long and emotionally challenging day. I'd been praying for the spirit of wisdom to guide me to a response. To help me navigate as an apostle. To be a witness to God's love and mercy. To humble myself and give glory to God. "How?" I asked. And I felt the spirit with me and listened. On the radio a song played, repeating (almost) endlessly "Say what you need to say." And the spirit added, "with love, from the heart." You can read about it in this week's Thirst for Wisdom and Cafe Chat.

Say, by John Mayer

Take all of your wasted honor
Every little past frustration
Take all of your so-called problems,
Better put 'em in quotations

Say what you need to say [x8]

Walking like a one man army
Fighting with the shadows in your head
Living out the same old moment
Knowing you'd be better off instead,
If you could only . . .

Say what you need to say [x8]

Have no fear for giving in
Have no fear for giving over
You'd better know that in the end
Its better to say too much
Then never say what you need to say again

Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open

Say what you need to say [x24]
