Let’s Be a Miracle

January 17, 2012

I’ve been listening to the newest Sara Groves album, Invisible Empires. “Miracle” is definitely my favorite song (besides “Open My Hands”) on this project and I find it’s simple melody and profound lyrics so moving.

We all have experienced pain, of various shapes and sizes. And when we do, we can be tempted to bitterness and anger. But as this song reminds me that I can choose God’s grace and be a miracle instead.

Listen here.

Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
Quiet our hearts for a little while

Things have been spoken
Shouldn’t be said
Rattles around in our hearts and our heads

Let’s feel what we cannot feel
Know what we cannot know
Let’s heal where we couldn’t heal
Oh, it’s a miracle, it’s a miracle

Things have been spoken
Shouldn’t be said
Rattles around in our hearts and our heads

Oh, it’s a miracle, love is a miracle

Let’s say what we cannot say
Let’s see what we cannot not see
Let’s hear what we could not hear
Oh it’s a mystery, love is a mystery
Oh it’s a miracle, it’s a miracle

Let’s be a miracle

-Sara Groves

    I love this. I haven’t heard it yet, but I’m going to find it and listen today. She is an amazing lyricist. God has used her song so many times to speak to my heart.

    I had the opportunity to meet Sara last summer. She was such a delight in person. I love how real and honest her songs are and I’m just now getting into listening to more of what she has written.

    Thanks for sharing this Danielle!
