May I be broken… So You can fix me.. So You may use me.

May I be broken… So You are my strength.. So You give me sight.

May I be broken… So with You I am crucified.. So You are glorified.

May I be broken… So this life is loss.. So You are my light.

May I be broken… So I long for eternity.. So You are well with me.

May I be broken… So You call me to service.. So I am Your sameness.

May I be broken… So as You were broken for me.. So I am broken for You.

“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, A broken and a contrite heart— These, O God, You will not despise.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭51:17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

  1. Never thought this day would be,
    never thought it really mattered,
    but now I can plainly see
    that I’m like the Psalmist, shattered.
    My spirit is completely wrecked,
    my heart’s down on the boards,
    and I can only genuflect
    and hope that my dear Lord
    will bind the wounds that I’ve acquired
    (some self-inflicted, that I know),
    and give my eyes, so sad and tired,
    once again a healthy glow,
    to look my killing cancer in the face,
    and beyond the death-masque, see God’s grace.
