You Don’t Have to Take The Broken Road…

TURN AROUND by Matt Maher

Track art

Young man on the side of the road
Lost and beat up with nowhere to go
Smells like a hangover from days ago
He does what he can to survive

Single mom with a dead end job
Ninety hour week just to keep what she’s got
With the bills that add up and now she’s caught
She does what she can to survive

Well, let me say
That love won’t take away the pain
But don’t be afraid
‘Cause it will never walk away

If you’re scared that you don’t matter
If you’re lost and need to be found
If you’re looking for a Savior
All you gotta do is turn around

Some turn to a bottle
Some turn to a drug
Some turn to another’s arms
But it seems like it’s never enough

Well I won’t say, that you will never fail again
But there is grace
To wash away your every sin

If you’re scared that you don’t matter
If you’re lost and need to be found
If you’re looking for a Savior
All you gotta do is turn around

No one listens to you anymore
And your heart has broken down
You don’t need to move
Love has come to you
All you gotta do is turn around
All you gotta do is turn around
Turn around

You don’t have to take the broken road
You can turn around and come back home

You don’t have to take the broken road
You can turn around and come back home

You don’t have to take the broken road
You can turn around and come back home

If you’re scared that you don’t matter
If you’re lost and need to be found
If you’re looking for a Savior
All you gotta do is turn around

No one listens to you anymore
And your heart has broken down
You don’t need to move
Love has come to you
All you gotta do is turn around
All you gotta do is turn around

Personal Journey

“When I can’t s…

“When I can’t see the sun shine, I can most definitely see the Son shine! Thank God for that..” Mandi M. for Caged No More (Me)

Thought this one up while looking out my kitchen window on a very cold, dreary winter’s day, when all was gray, very dark for that time of day, without much sunlight. The Son being Jesus Christ, the Son of The Living God, and the Messiah.

I believe that our faith/religion/spiritual stance can really inspire us if we open up our hearts and let go of it all…all the negative energy. I have never felt this great in my life…sure there are moments where like everyone else I combat negative thinking, but my eyes have been opened in my twenties, this last decade that I have yet to complete 🙂

Blessings to you all and sweet dreams as well, or if you are in a very different time zone, I wish you beautiful day, that you will never forget.

-xox, Mandi
