For the last five years, this has been my favorite song. In 2014, MercyMe produced Flawless. I try to listen to the song every day. It brings hope to any of us who have flaws.
“No matter the bumps, no matter the bruises, no matter the scars, still the truth is – the cross has made, the cross has made you flawless.
“No matter the hurt or how deep the wound is, no matter the pain, still the truth is – the cross has made, the cross has made you flawless.
“Take a breath, smile and say – right here and now I’m ok, because the cross was enough. Then like a hero who takes the stage when we’re on the edge of our seats saying it’s too late, well let me introduce you to grace, grace, God’s grace.”
Recovery Step: I encourage you to pull up Flawless on YouTube. As great as the words are, the video MercyMe produced will make your day. I promise.
