You Need To Break The Shell…For The Freedom To Fly!


Psalm 55:6

“I said, ‘Oh, that I had the wings of a dove!   

I would fly away and be at rest.'”

Child, it’s time to break the shell

Life’s gonna hurt but it’s meant to be felt

You cannot touch the sky from inside yourself

You cannot fly until you break the shell.

(Actress Cicely Tyson inspired India to write this song by saying,)

“You need to break the shell and let life touch you.

Psalm 84:1-4

How lovely is your dwelling place,   

Lord Almighty!

My soul yearns, even faints,   

for the courts of the Lord;

my heart and my flesh cry out   

for the living God.

Even the sparrow has found a home,   

and the swallow a nest for herself,   

where she may have her young—

a place near your altar,   

Lord Almighty, my King and my God.

Blessed are those who dwell in your house;   

they are ever praising you.
