Are You Broken?

I am.  

Who among you can’t raise your hand to that question?  

Piece by piece He continues to put me back together.   Just like the broken egg Humpty Dumpty – but in this story He is able to put me (and all of us) back together again.

As I drove home last night from spending the day with five of our children at Hershey Park, I listened to this song, and sang from deep within my heart and soul…

"You said I'd have no more than I can handle
But everyday seems to be getting harder to make good
Through You, You said that I could do anything, oh anything
But sometimes, I feel like I can't do it at all

I've been knocked down and dragged around
And now I don't know which way to go
All I need is one small sign to put me to where,
Where You want me
I'm confused so I'm calling on You

Cause I, I'm broken
And I'm ready for you to pick up the pieces
Won't You direct me, hold me, accept me, and mold me
Put the fragments of my life back together again
Cause I'm broken

Somewhat embarrassed to admit this
But I wonder if it's the other, or if it's You
Is it trying to tempt me, or is it You
Who strengthens me
I'm weak, so I'm confessing to You

Cause I, I'm broken
And I'm ready for you to pick up all the pieces
Won't You direct me, hold me, accept me, and mold me
Put the fragments of my life back together again
Cause I'm broken

My pride has been bruised
I suppose that's good
My will to You, I surrender
Oh, I surrender
Cause I, I'm broken

And I'm ready for you to pick up all these pieces
Direct me, hold me, accept me, and mold me
Put the fragments of this life back together again
Cause I'm broken"


Here is the beauty in being broken and acknowledging it, He gives grace to the humble.   Admitting our weakness and knowing we can do NOTHING without Him provides us with everything we need…

amen.

Praying for all of us to come to Him as we are, broken and in need of Him daily.  I am in desperate need of His grace in my life and the outpouring of His tender mercies.   Oh how He loves us.

Wishing you all a beautiful and blessed day!
