bleed the same

Today, decided to share an inspiring song to end my first week of great information.

During my workouts, this is one of the songs that inspires me the most.  In fact, it inspires me every time I hear it.

It is, “Bleed the Same” by Mandisa, Toby Mac, and Kirk Franklin; here’s a link to the song and video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVKuA1s5I3o

And here are the lyrics:

We all bleed the same
We’re more beautiful when we come together
We all bleed the same
So tell me why, tell me why we’re divided

Woke up today
Another headline, another innocent life is taken
In the name of hatred
So hard to take
And if we think that it’s all good
Then we’re mistaken
‘Cause my heart is breakin’

Are you left, are you right
Pointing fingers, taking sides
When are we gonna realize

We all bleed the same
We’re more beautiful when we come together
We all bleed the same
So tell me why, tell me why we’re divided
If we’re gonna fight, let’s fight for each other
If we’re gonna shout, let love be the cry
We all bleed the same
So tell me why, tell me why we’re divided

Tell me who are we
To judge someone by the kind of clothes they’re wearin’
Or the color of their skin
Are you black, are you white
Aren’t we all the same inside
Father, open our eyes to see

Only love can drive out all the darkness
What are we fightin’ for
We were made to carry one another
We were made for more

We all bleed the same
We’re more beautiful when we come together
We all bleed the same
So tell me why, tell me why we’re divided
If we’re gonna fight, let’s fight for each other
If we’re gonna shout, let love be the cry
We all bleed the same
Let’s stand united, let’s stand united

Enjoy!

    • Hi Lucy! Yep, I decided to try something different for the next year – post something useful every day! Since I read SOOOOO much every day, it should be easy for me to do for 365 days – and then we’ll see where it goes.

      Congrats on the new book – will need to sit down and chat about the process. Might be my next adventure. Take care, my friend!

    • Hi Cathy! Thanks for taking the time to respond – very much appreciated!

      Great hanging out with you in May; hope all is well on your end.

      Look forward to connecting again soon!

  1. This song is so appropriate TODAY! May it pierce the hearts of those who are willing to listen. “What the world needs now is love sweet love. It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of”!
