And I can’t afford it/ But it’s mine

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 Changed,” by Sara Groves, as quoted in “Angry Conversations with God: A Snarky But Authentic Spiritual Memoir” by Susan E. Isaacs.  Haven’t heard the song, but I liked the words.  And the book is kickin.
