This morning I woke up with a calling God placed on my heart. These words were revealed as I closed my eyes and trusted Him to guide my hand. So many of us have found ourselves hurting and broken; feeling that we are unworthy of God’s grace. But His grace, as is His love is abundant and unfailing. It’s in those moments of darkness that He reaches out to us in earnest, patiently waiting for us to turn to Him. As His word reveals, “I am the way and the truth and the life.” (John 14:6). Turn to Him in all things, lean on Him in all things, trust in Him in all things and know that He is God.
BLESS THE BROKEN
God bless the broken
The hurting and the lost
Let them find their way to You
In every moment
No matter the cost.
Remind them of Your mighty ways
That Your grace is unending
Even for those who are weary
Shattered and unbending.
You never forsake them
Even when they turn from You
You wait patiently in the shadows
For the them to seek Your holy truth.
You use them all
Your broken lambs
To spread your love to a weary world
That fails to understand.
That even when the mountains
Rise higher and unmoving
Your goodness is still constant
Your presence unending.
Teach them to put their trust in you
To surrender their lives to Your grace
To know without question
That with open arms
You will always wait.
Through fire and flood
Through guilt and shame
Your mercy is there
They need only call your name.
God bless the broken
Who carry their burdens in defeat
Who fail to see the freedom
In laying them at your feet.
Who fail to recognize
That You’ve already paid the cost
For every broken soul that cries
For the disheartened and the lost.
That in every season
Since their very first breath
It is in You alone that they will find
Bless the broken, God
Turn their eyes to Heaven
Let them see the power and the promise
In the sacrifice You’ve freely given.
Grant them the wholeness, God
That they will only know in You
That Your love is sealed upon their being
And their everything is only found in You.
