Break My Heart...
8/23/2008 4:21:43 AM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

The Spirit of God can flow through a broken heart that has been fully surrendered to Him.

Oh, Lord Jesus break my heart
And through the crevice

Unceasing love, unending joy
That You alone

Through broken vessels
Filled by love
From your own
bleeding side.

If I reach out to touch the world, I know that I will find friends among the multitude—and I will find critics. Both friend and foe will interact with me. They will enrich my life, and I theirs, I hope.

Yes, I will make mistakes, but they will be mistakes in keeping with my character. Honest mistakes, quickly amended, are just as quickly forgiven. They reveal our humanity and keep us humble. There is no need to fear, as long as I keep growing and stay close to the side of Christ, as a sheep keeps step with her Shepherd.

Flow through me, O Spirit of the Living God, and touch a wounded world. If through my broken heart, it is Your will to bring another to Your side, then my brokenness is Your gain, and that gives meaning to the suffering and bathes my pain with joy!
