05. Moved By Mercy

Into the Light
by Matthew West



 

She said ďI keep having the same dream / Close my eyes and Iím chasing a younger me / Try to wrap my arms around her / Shield her from the hell that found her / But Iím always just a little too late / I see the tears falling down her face / How come no one protected / The little girl that the world rejectedĒ / Oh, where do you go when you canít go back / Canít save the past / And she cries in the middle of the night / ďTake me far away now / From this broken place now / Somewhere they canít hurt me / I wanna be moved by mercy / Jesus, I canít see You / I just know I need You
/ Help me start a new life / Let my heart be moved by mercyĒ / ďI used to be a future burning bright / Now Iím just another sleepless nightĒ / All the hurt that you hide behind that door / Iím not gonna let it hurt you anymore / ďFor so long I thought You abandoned me / Now Iím starting to see things differentlyĒ / Iím the one who began a good work in you / And Iím the one who is gonna see it through / Iíll see you through / For so long I felt so unworthy / But in My arms all your shame is moved by mercy / So here I stand, a child undeserving / Take My hand and let your heart
be moved by mercy

Behind the Song:
KRYSTAL WAS A VICTIM OF ABUSE AND NEGLECT AS A CHILD. SHE ALWAYS FELT LIKE GOD HAD ABANDONED HER BACK THEN. FOR SEVERAL YEARS SHE HAD A RECURRING DREAM WHERE SHE WAS RUNNING AFTER A LITTLE GIRL AND TRYING TO PROTECT HER BEFORE THE LITTLE GIRL WAS TAKEN OVER BY SHADOWS. SHE NEVER MADE IT IN TIME TO SAVE THE GIRL. AS AN ADULT SHE FOUND HER WAY TO MERCY MINISTRIES, A SHELTER FOR WOMEN, AND THAT IS WHERE SHE BEGAN TO HEAL. SHE REALIZED THE LITTLE GIRL IN HER DREAM ALL THOSE YEARS WAS HER. SHE REALIZED THAT GOD HAD NOT ABANDONED HER. HE HAD PROTECTED HER AND IS WORKING IN HER LIFE EVEN STILL. - Matthew West
