Sara Groves

I love some Sara Groves.  She speaks truth in her lyrics and I have spent A LOT of time listening to her over the past year and a half.   Different songs hit home at different times depending on the week or the day.  This one though, Something Changed, speaks to my past year at Covenant.  A lot happened during 2010.  There was a lot of personal and spiritual growth.  God became so much bigger to me.  I have felt the tension of living in the "already-not-yet" in a way I have never felt it before.  "Already-not-yet" meaning we live between the ages. We live in the time post Christ coming and redeeming us from our sins, but not being fully redeemed.  We feel the weight of the broken world we live in.  We also long and hope for Christ's return in which he will renew all things.

The Lord is still working on those walls around my heart but he has definitely broken them down.  I'm sure 2011 holds another year full of the Lord working in my heart.


Something Changed

By Sara Groves


Something changed inside me broke wide open all spilled out
Till I had no doubt that something changed
Never would have believed it till I felt it in my own heart
In the deepest part the healing came
And I cannot make it
And I cannot fake it
And I can't afford it
But it's mine
Something so amazing in a heart so dark and dim
When a wall falls down and the light comes in
And I cannot make it
And I cannot fake it
And I can't afford it
But it's mine
