05. Moved By Mercy

Into the Light
by Matthew West



 

She said “I keep having the same dream / Close my eyes and I’m chasing a younger me / Try to wrap my arms around her / Shield her from the hell that found her / But I’m 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 rejected” / Oh, where do you go when you can’t go back / Can’t save the past / And she cries in the middle of the night / “Take me far away now / From this broken place now / Somewhere they can’t hurt me / I wanna be moved by mercy / Jesus, I can’t see You / I just know I need You
/ Help me start a new life / Let my heart be moved by mercy” / “I used to be a future burning bright / Now I’m just another sleepless night” / All the hurt that you hide behind that door / I’m not gonna let it hurt you anymore / “For so long I thought You abandoned me / Now I’m starting to see things differently” / I’m the one who began a good work in you / And I’m the one who is gonna see it through / I’ll 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
