Wow. Came across this song tonight and felt it tug on my soul.
Sometimes, severing a relationship, a friendship, a bond, a soul tie is a must.
If simply for survival…
For a life to once again thrive…
Unless, you’ve been to the point of silent pain, irrevocable destruction, or heart wrenching betrayal, this concept may seem foreign, even ludicrous to your ears.
But if you’ve cried yourself to sleep at night over words that were spoken against you…
If you’ve hidden your face in shame for deeds you never committed…
If you’ve stood in utter shock and amazement as one who promised to defend nonchalantly walked away,
or lied to your face,
or spilled slanderous gossip to cause heads to turn…
Then, you might begin to understand.
Sometimes, severing is simple survival.
And healing brings a heart to thrive again.
“Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them. For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple.”Romans 16:17-18 nkjv
“Do not be envious of evil men, nor desire to be with them; For their heart devises violence, and their lips talk of troublemaking.Proverbs 24:1-2 nkjv
“We sever the tie of constraint; the leash that keeps us cohering to someone else’s plan rather than stepping out and realizing our true potential,” says Anthony of the impetus behind the single. (per ccmagazine.com)
