With vulnerability comes the knowledge of being known and laying down walls. Have you ever found it difficult to open up to others and end up building up layers of pride to distance yourself from others? The Lord has been showing me lately that He is worth laying down my walls and that He can help me to know and be known.
Lord, I don’t know how to remove this pride in me,
Used to overlook it, now it’s all I can see
And it’s wrecking my heart and my friends…
I used to listen now all I hear is sound;
My lofty heart is now a cavern where emptiness abounds.
My hands are tied and so is my breaking heart.
I don’t have it together and that is where I start…
I am nothing ain’t gonna think myself something
I am nothing ain’t gonna think myself something.
You’ve got this all figured out
And I will let all my walls down…
To know the own depths of my heart would destroy this
Heart of mine, overwhelmed by sin didn’t know did exist.
But Oh God, You are so kind and good!
You’re breaking me to make me like Jesus:
Humble and lowly even when misunderstood by the men in His ‘hood.
Only You can do this construction:
I trust You.
And I will let all my walls down
