I love this song. It struck a cord with me the first time I heard it a few years ago.  It is very important to me that people are open and honest, particularly if they are part of the body of Christ.

If We’re Honest

Truth is harder than a lie
The dark seems safer than the light
And everyone has a heart that loves to hide
I’m a mess and so are you
We’ve built walls nobody can get through
Yeah, it may be hard, but the best thing we could ever do, ever do

Bring your brokenness, and I’ll bring mine
‘Cause love can heal what hurt divides
And mercy’s waiting on the other side
If we’re honest
If we’re honest

Don’t pretend to be something that you’re not
Living life afraid of getting caught
There is freedom found when we lay
Our secrets down at the cross, at the cross

So bring your brokenness, and I’ll bring mine
‘Cause love can heal what hurt divides
And mercy’s waiting on the other side
If we’re honest
If we’re honest

It would change our lives
It would set us free
It’s what we need to be

So bring your brokenness and I’ll bring mine
‘Cause love can heal what hurt divides
And mercy’s waiting on the other side
If we’re honest
If we’re honest
If we’re honest

The song was written by Francesca Battistelli, Jeff Pardo and Molly E. Reed and released on Francesca Battistelli’s album of the same name in 2014. Wikipedia has more about the album and the writers.

Here is a YouTube Video of Francesca telling the story behind the song. I had not seen this video before I wrote my last post, but right now, I’m kind of feeling like God is telling me I’m on the right track.

 

And here is a YouTube video of If We’re Honest uploaded by Francesca’s YouTube channel.

See you in Church! Come over and sit with me!
