A crack may represent a problem
In almost every case,
Because a broken fragment will alert us
There’s an issue we need to face.
A crack in a pot
Can be creatively adjusted,
When a mosaic is made into a masterpiece
Where the pot is never wasted.
Cracks in our relationships
Occur from time to time,
When we neglect our responsibilities
And ignore problems in their prime.
Cracks appear in our fallen nature
It’s where inconsistencies they occur,
It reveals our guard has been let down
Where potential hazards we can incur.
But not all cracks are lethal
Since we’re broken many times,
When we grieve at society’s wicked ways
And its many untold crimes.
A crack in the wall
Foundational issues it will reveal,
And similarly unless our doctrine is found in Christ
Our faith cannot be real.
Cracks in cement
Represent movement from beneath,
But if our faith is built on the rock
We will not taste defeat.
We can crack under pressure
Since the warning signs are there,
But when we trust that God is in control
Our burdens He will bear.
A crack in our integrity
Is an early indication,
That we’ve allowed the lies to enter
And to settle without hesitation.
A crack is a warning sign
That re-focus is required,
To rest our weary souls
And to be replenished as desired.
The chief cornerstone
Never showed any cracks indeed,
His foundation is solid, sure and steady
And for our souls He intercedes.
