Cause I am a sinner
If its not one thing its another
Caught up in words
Tangled in lies
You are the Savior
And you take brokenness aside
And make it beautiful
“Brokenness Aside “- All Sons And Daughters – Brokenness Aside EP Vol.1
We all have issues we struggle with .. all of us. We say we are going to change the way we act, things will be different in the future. Sometimes over time we can look back and see that we struggle less with things that were major issues in the past. But we all struggle with those stupid sins that seem to cause us separation from Christ. The question is what do we do about it? How do we face the future with the hope of Christ, knowing that He can do all things?
Brokenness .. God uses brokenness. God can take our brokenness and turn it into wonderful things through His Grace and Love. Brokenness over our acts that cause separation from Him. Brokenness over the distance we caused and the hurt and disappointment. He knows what is best for us and must be sorrowful when we take steps away from the right path.
Continuing, how do we get the sought after brokenness? Can we just be sorry for sinning? Can we just decide to hate sin and step away from its easy enticement?
It’s not that easy. Sin brings pleasure for a season. It is so much easier to coast through the day not really worrying about separation from God. Matter of fact, this comes naturally if you just get on the boat and take the ride. Paddling is hard and the current is strong.
The answer lies in the bible. Get ahold of some scriptures that mean something to you and learn them. Oh yes, no one said this would be easy. You have to put the word of God into your heart. God has a way of actually changing us as we make those verses a part of our lives. Those on the outside will never understand this – they are on the outside!
The seriousness of our devotion is reflected by the serious of our actions to retain intimacy.
I could list a bunch of verses that mean something to me, but it means more if you do this yourself. You have to own it!
