“Piece By Piece”

A few weeks ago we posted an article called Unity for Our Fragmented SoulsIt focused on the importance of allowing God to reveal and to heal all of our fragmented parts. Shortly after that, a friend shared with us a powerful music video as a follow-up to that post, and we sent that out on our blog as well. It was called We Come To God In Pieces . . . A Powerful Music Video.

This morning, two friends sent us a video of Kelly Clarkson’s performance on American Idol last night that was so powerful and again emphasized the need to allow God to “gather the pieces of our soul” and do what He does best–heal them.  Although Kelly was singing of her husband, it is easy to see how this applies to our true Husband–Jesus.

Here is the 5-minute video.  The lyrics are below:

“Piece By Piece” By Kelly Clarkson

And all I remember is your back
Walking towards the airport, leaving us all in your past
I traveled fifteen hundred miles to see you
Begged you to want me, but you didn’t want to

But piece by piece, he collected me
Up off the ground, where you abandoned things, yeah
Piece by piece he filled the holes that you burned in me
At six years old and you know, he never walks away
He never asks for money, he takes care of me
He loves me
Piece by piece, he restored my faith
That a man can be kind and a father could… stay

And all of your words fall flat
I made something of myself and now you want to come back
But your love, it isn’t free, it has to be earned
Back then I didn’t have anything you needed so I was worthless

But piece by piece, he collected me
Up off the ground, where you abandoned things, yeah
Piece by piece he filled the holes that you burned in me
At six years old and you know, he never walks away
He never asks for money, he takes care of me
He loves me
Piece by piece, he restored my faith
That a man can be kind and a father could… stay

Piece by piece [x6]

Piece by piece I fell far from the tree
I will never leave her like you left me
And she will never have to wonder her worth
Because unlike you I’m going to put her first
And you know, he’ll never walk away,
He’ll never break her heart
He’ll take care of things, he’ll love her
And piece by piece, he’ll restore my faith
That a man can be kind and a father should be great

Piece by piece [x3]

 Until next time . . .
