Broken

From Blog09


Broken
    shredded
        not completely,
        but in every part
    broken by sin
but for God's glory.

Grasping
    striving
        for completion
        for wholeness
    but still
quite surely broken.

Rescued
    washed
        this completely
        in every part
    washed by Jesus
and for God's glory.

Humbled
    healed
        sing hallelujah
        forgiven now
    and filled
and my pride broken

Growing
    falling
        still such failing
        still much weakness
    with forgiveness
for me the broken.

Waiting
    watching
        for Jesus coming
        with clouds descending
    I'll rise to serve him
no longer broken.

Dear friends, we are God's children now, and what we will be has not yet been revealed. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him as He is.
--1 John 3:2 HCSB

Note: This post is a response to and an affirmation of posts on this theme by two of my favorite bloggers, RomanĂ³s (note that it has sound) and The Postman.
