Broken Questions

April 16, 2020


Tears are bleeding down my face
I've been shattered before
This is something I've known a thousand times
I never have the strength to hold myself together

But You sing to me, literally
A song of pure acceptance of every ugly fracture
Your perfect Love is so whole that I am complete
Even while I am breaking in front of You

I have no choice but to surrender my pain
Because my Lord refuses to simply watch
Trusting Him to love me is the only thing keeping me alive
I was in a very dark place last night. There was so much hurt that I was feeling. Then God reminded me of the song Why God by Austin French and then Broken Prayers by Riley Clemmons. I started crying even harder as I released my pain to Him. This poem came immediately from that.

    Aw, this is so beautiful! I can relate; so many of my poems come from when I am upset and then realize God loves me so much. I am so thankful for a loving God who is always with us!
