We are all unique
With different qualities,
And although at times we’re broken and shattered
There’s a renewed hope to be seen.
When we are like worn out fabric
And to the maximum we’re stretched,
We extend our arm to God Almighty
Who wants our very best.
When our heart is torn and ripped apart
We cry to God above,
Who will stitch our pain with dignity
From His pure hand above.
He’ll repair us from the inside out
As we’re certainly recycled,
And reinforced with fresh new measures
When we’re taught and are discipled.
Our tattered soul will be refreshed
As we go against the grain,
Where evil thoughts are torn apart
And in our heart Jesus will reign.
There’s a purpose through our brokenness;
Our broken alabaster box,
When the bread that’s broken gives us courage
As it produces a large crop.
When we weep bitterly
And our tears they do rain,
Our broken heart is mended
So His grace and love remains.
There is no hopeless soul
Since there’s a purpose to brokenness,
When the broken soil of our heart
Much fruit will manifest.

“God uses broken things. It takes broken soil to produce a crop, broken clouds to give rain, broken grain to give bread, broken bread to give strength. It is the broken alabaster box that gives forth perfume. It is Peter, weeping bitterly, who returns to greater power than ever.” Vance Havner
