Like a splinter in the flesh
Bad experiences have left their mark
Not dealt with; scars unhealed
Left to fester as time moved on
They are the weak points on which my enemy presses
They are the stumbling blocks which turn me back
Like barriers they stand

But how can I look at life with one eye closed?
How can I forget your faithfulness?
When you answered my cry for help
When you took impossible situations
And made them possible
I would not stand where I am today if not for you
So I will not focus on the hurts and pains
On the places where You are still healing me
I will focus on the great things You have already done
As I step out in faith again
