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.

(C) P.B. 2021

“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
