Recompense is my way to freedom - Tia

Toya says something that goes, "Just because you're right doesn't mean you're correct." Or something like that.

I recently had a falling out with this guy I was fairly cool with. And though I stand by my opinions and what I said, I realized that I may not have handled it in the best way. I feel like I was right. But maybe I wasn't correct in how I dealt with things.

As I've stated before, I don't do well with sensitive. If your feelings are easily hurt and you are what Toya and I call "tender" then you may not want to kick it too tough with me. While I NEVER intentionally set out to hurt someone's feelings, I'm not usually inclined to hold back what I'm thinking. But sometimes there is a level of sensitivity that is necessary in showing mutual respect. I guess that's something that I'm still learning.

So as I sit here listening to dc Talk's Between You and Me, I realize that being right is okay but being a friend is a better look.

Sorrow is a lonely feeling

Unsettled is a painful place

I've lived with both for far too long now

Since we've parted ways

I've been wrestling with my conscience

And I found myself to blame

If there's to be any resolution

I've got to peel my pride away



Just between you and me

I've got something to say

I wanna get it straight

Before the sun goes down

Just between you and me

Confession needs to be made

Recompense is my way to freedom now

Just between you and me

I've got something to say



If confession is the road to healing

Forgiveness is the promised land

I'm reaching out in my conviction

I'm longing to make amends

So I'm sorry for the words I've spoken

For I've betrayed a friend

We've got a love that's worth preserving

And a bond I will defend



Just between you and me

I've got something to say

I wanna get it straight

Before the sun goes down

Just between you and me

Confession needs to be made

Recompense is my way to freedom now

Just between you and me

I've got something to say


In my pursuit of God, I thirst for holiness

As I approach the Son, I must consider this

Offenses unresolved, they'll keep me from the throne

Before I go to Him my wrong must be atoned



If there's to be any resolution

I've got to peel this pride away



Just between you and me

I've got something to say

I wanna get it straight

Before the sun goes down

Just between you and me

Confession needs to be made

Recompense is my way to freedom

It's my way to freedom



It's my way to freedom

I've got something to say, so let me say it today

It's my way to freedom

I've got something to say, confession needs to be made

It's my way to freedom

I've got something to say, confession needs to be made

It's my way to freedom

I've got something to say...
